One statement got me thinking: “willpower isn’t a reliable weight loss tool”
I repeated this several times, and realized that I do this a lot. If I don’t prep my food, or forget to pack a healthy meal when traveling, I think “well I will just resist any temptations”. I cannot tell you how many times I have forgotten to pack a lunch for work and in my large office which vendors bring in not so healthy lunches, and I see a warm bread stick and say, I will just have one and realize I put 3 on my plate. Well I decided to use Marissa book as a tool like she suggests, promotes and provides in her book and see if I could develop some new amazing healthy transformations on my own Holistically Hot Transformation.
Best part of the book is the easy steps Marissa provides to help, aid and move towards your own Holistically Hot Transformation.
At the end of the book Marissa provides ways to incorporate all of her knowledge into your every day life. Use smaller plates to keep portions smaller, take the stairs instead of the elevator to incorporate exercise into your daily routine when you don’t have time to go to the gym, drink water throughout the day so stay hydrates. But most importantly, Marissa wants you to stop obsessing – don’t focus on the scale, don’t worry about being perfect. Just be you. Be holistically hot!
This is a great read for nutrition and health novices because the essentials are broken down in a way that is easy to understand. Your Holistically Hot Transformation includes recipes and a grocery list of food for each food group that should be present on your plate. Whether you’re looking to learn about nutrition and a healthy lifestyle or looking for tips on how to maintain your already healthy lifestyle, Your Holistically Hot Transformation can benefit you.
