Book Review: Loving Yourself to Great Health: Thoughts & Food--The Ultimate Diet By Louise L. Hay, Ahlea Khadro, Heather Dane Louise Hay has teamed up with her nutrition and natural health advisors to give the world this complete guide to attain great health. This book is more than just a diet book and more than just a recipe book. This isn’t the latest fad diet to earn the authors millions of dollars on a scam that only works for a few people. This is a way of life that could change the American obesity epidemic and diseases of ill health. Loving yourself is not a platitude; it is the basis of all great health. By combining the essentials of the mind, the body and the spirit along with healthy foods, meditations and exercise a person can attain great health that seems elusive in our society. The book is divided into two parts. The first part comprises seven steps; Step 1: Create a New Perspective on Health. The authors detail why and how the body had disease, illness and symptoms that are crying for your attention. They offer a new perspective to allow the body to heal itself. Step 2: Love Yourself and Your Body- Food, Weight Loss, Disease and More. They offer suggestions and a program of healing your body as they discuss ways to achieve the health you want. They include affirmations which Louise Hay is famously, and right so, known for. Step 3: Know How Your Body Really Works- the Foundation for Health. This chapter discusses how the body works, how it processes food and how thoughts affect the body just as much as food does. It discusses how the body was designed to perform perfectly and to heal itself if given the proper foods and rest. Step 4: Listen to Your Body-A Powerful, Yet Little-Known Secret. The authors detail how people are not taught to listen to their bodies, either through recurring patterns, dreams, intuition etc. However, the body is screaming at us to pay attention. The body knows how to heal itself if listened to and given the proper nutrients and positivity to do so. Step 5: Emphasize Food and Thoughts That Heal Your Body and Mind. This chapter discusses which foods to eat and which to avoid for the best health. It details which foods could cause sensitivities or allergies, which are downright unhealthy and even caustic. It also details which foods will heal and nourish the body for the best results. Step 6: Empower Your Health-Home Remedies for What Ails You. By looking in your garden and kitchen cupboard you can find many remedies that support health and healing. This chapter marries holistic health remedies with an open dialogue with your doctor for your health needs. Step 7: The Road Map for Your Best Health. This chapter sets out a plan of action for you to start at your own pace. Part 2: I Love My Kitchen-How to Create Delicious, Healthy Meals. The authors break down kitchen basics so even the most daunted can feel comfortable in the kitchen. They explain what tools to use, food storage and ease of making meals on the go. In chapter 9, they list sample menus and meal options including shopping lists to find everything at hand. Chapter 10 is the recipe section, complete with vegetables dishes, smoothies, soups, meats, cereals, pilafs, breads, snack and desserts. This book includes so much information to get you started toward a healthier life. It brings the best of Louise Hay with her teachings of affirmations and positive thoughts to heal your body and life and adds in holistic nutrition, digestive health, meditation and so much more to comprise this whole health system. They include meditations in the book that you can record yourself and listen to, or buy the accompanying CD. You will find in the chapters in the first half of the book affirmations, meditations and exercise examples to change not only the way you think, but how to distress and how to envision the health you want. The authors state that they are passionate about health and they all know as Louise says, “Thoughts and food-if you get both right, good health follows.” Their passion comes through the words on the pages as they genuinely want to help you achieve great health.

From "we learn to paint the picture we want other people to see" to putting "healthy-food time" on your daily calendar to the metaphysical meaning of poop, Louise Hay is moving the issues of obesity and self-destructive behavior into the spiritual realm. At that level there are only two choices: love and fear. With this groundbreaking book, she is telling readers how to embrace love first and let healthy lifestyle choices fall into place afterwards. I'd also recommend that you buy The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution. The Hungry Chick too is a refreshing look at how we look at the foods that we eat.
Love it! I want to by this book
