“Read. This. Book. The author worked in the fitness industry for years and knows how to motivate you to live fully and well. Weight gain does not have to be inevitable. The author is also relatable. Early on, she struggled with bad eating habits and excess weight. What I like most about the counsel Dawson-Cook gives, like her Slim for Life secrets, is that you can tailor the advice to your body, your lifestyle, and your mindset. Use this book as a catalyst for change, and experience the joy that comes from an active, healthy lifestyle.” – Reading is my hobby
