"Skinny Life" is a personal growth book written by author Crystal Dwyer Hansen. She writes her thoughts on the secret to physical, emotional, and spiritual fitness, as her subtitle states. I did not pick out this book for weight-loss, although it leans heavily in that area. However, I picked it out for spiritual and emotional fitness. I recently read, and reviewed, "Real Food for Rookies" which is a great book to read along with `Skinny Life`. Crystal Hansen states that her book is not about diet or workout, but about changing your mind (thinking).
I found this quote on page 14, "We spend almost $60 million per year on diet and weight-loss products, yet people are heavier than ever before in history." "Skinny Life' raises the question, "How many diets have you been on? Did they work?" It's time to acknowledge the connection between your mind, body, and spirit (pg 18). The more you are willing to embrace change, the greater your chances for success in every area of your life. (pg 22.)
The intended audience are those wanting to live a healthier lifestyle. The author's ideas are clear with a `Skinny Life Toolbox' in each chapter.
