We’ve see it all before—why we, as a society, has gained weight over the decades, eat less, exercise more, eat this food, avoid that food, it’s in your DNA, it’s how busy you are—it’s not your fault—because it wouldn’t be PC to say it is your fault.

In Rashelle Brown’s REBOOT YOUR BODY:  Unlocking the Genetic Secrets to Permanent Weight Loss is revisits some of these excuses/reasons/plans/programs, etc. and then does something a little different because she gives you a roadmap to work through all of these sometimes conflicting, sometimes helpful, ideas.  Her approach isn’t just medical or mind set or practical dietary suggestions.  Instead she combines different the different sciences in an understandable, easy to follow program that, at the same time, is forgiving of our human needs.

She starts out with some history about how we got where we are—did you know before WWI our military was generally underweight?  And it was so until pre-packaged meals—needed to feed all the troops—came into being.  She then engages her readers into the psychological aspects of her program—taking personal responsibility to work with what nature has given us.

There are no expensive meal plans, meetings to hear what you could read in a book or expensive gadgets to buy.  All you need is a notebook, pen or pencil and your personal commitment to show up to work with yourself.

What I particularly liked was that Brown tells you, in essence, it’s okay to be less than perfect—that sometimes you need to take a step or two back, particularly when it comes to plateaus.  She doesn’t tell you they might happen—but that they will, in fact, happen and then gives you some solid advice on how to deal with them.

Ms. Brown’s Reboot Your Body presents a solid, working took to shed those pounds and keep them off.

This is an objective review and an endorsement of this book.
