Reviews - What do customers think about Healthy For Life?
Healthy for Life Feb 15, 2007
This is a well researched approach to losing weight in a more permanent fashion. It gives hope to all those people who have been dieting forever and not getting lasting results. Excellent read.
Books are virtually the same Feb 15, 2007
I read a borrowed copy of Releasing Fat: Developing Healthy lifestyles that Have the Side-Effect of Permanent Weight Loss. It wasn't until after I ordered a copy for myself AND and copy of Healthy for Life... that I read the blurbs about them on Dr. Strand's website. You can't tell on the this site site that the books are virtually identical. The only difference is that Releasing Fat includes Usana products (meal replacements, snack bars, and vitamins and minerals) in its meal plans. Healthy for Life just has low-glycemic foods in its meal plans. If you want only one copy, you just need to get one or the other, not both. HOWEVER, I wasn't bothered by having two copies of what amounted to the same book because I've learned so much about insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, killer (abdominal) fat, carb cravings, cellular nutrition, and the benefits of a low-glycemic diet that I wanted to recommend it to all my friends and relatives. There are a lot of low-gycemic diet books out there now, but this is the only one I've seen that goes into such detail about the specific negative health effects that result from the way most Americans eat and how a change to a low-glycemic diet will counteract those health problems.
Healthy For Life: by Ray Strand Aug 29, 2006
I have enjoyed the writing of Ray Strand in the past, and his being the author of this book was partly instrumental in my decision to purchase it. The title seems to imply that the subject matter would cover a variety of concerns and indeed, the first quarter of the book deals with the generalities in lifestyles and health. However, the main thrust of this book appears to be the effect of high glycemic foods on the present, almost epidemic occurence of diabetes in the general population, from children and adolescents to adults. If this is your area of interest, this book is quite thorough and covers a lot of territory regarding the effects of glycemic overload and what can be done about it. I find the author's inclusion of several weeks of sample, remedial menus to be very helpful. This book would be beneficial to everyone given the present state of America's health trends and Dr. Strnd writes clearly and in depth about the subject.
Healthy for LIfe: Developing Healthy Lifestyles that Have the Side-Effect of Permanent Weight Loss Aug 7, 2006
Excellent book for all those interested in wellness and/or weight loss. Dr. Strand presents the technical reasons for weight loss in very interesting and understandable language. I strongly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in health, wellness, and/or weight loss.
Americans need to know what this book tells May 17, 2006
It is essential that Americans learn why they are addicted to carbs and why this leads to insulin resistence, fat middles, and many health problems. This book finally made me understand why I had trouble losing weight in the past and made it easier for me to make good choices. My cholesterol has lowered and my cravings have decreased. My waist went from 40 inches to 34 and I feel much better. I bought only one book at first but ended up getting 4 more for my dad and brothers and a friend.
