About my blog

When I was a little girl, I struggled to read. Reading did not come naturally to me; however, over the last 30 years I have become an avid reader, I love books. I love LDS (Latter Day Saint) Historical fiction, I love romance, I love biographies, I love stories of hope, and ways to help. I will post books that I have read, ones that have warmed my heart and given me hope!

My Review:

A MUST READ! I have never read a book that spoke to me and answered many of the questions I have had over the last few years. Dr. Berg explains in detail exactly what causes a body to become overweight. The book offers a quiz that helps one to identify body type, because everyone is individual to his or her own body. Then he shows ways to help reverse long term issues that result in inability to lose weight and keep it off. The one thing I found to be most helpful is Dr. Berg goes step by step in showing the reader how to start with a liver enhancement, then what foods are specific to helping each individual body type.

This book is by far the best resource for learning how to burn fat and become healthy properly and effectively. Everything about this book has made sense to me. This is a life style change it is not a diet. There can not be any reason to go back. This book is only a small portion that Dr. Berg offers,  he has a website that can help answer questions and one can watch video's as well.

If you are trying to change your way of life, looking for a healthy lifestyle, and want to learn about yourself and your body then this book is for you. This book is an easy read, it is user friendly. Inside you will find sample menu's and meal plans, there is not one area that is left to the imagination. One of the best reads, I recommend this book to everyone!

I was not paid for this review, I was given a  free copy of this book from Media Guests for my honest review. Thank you Media Guests for the opportunity. Thank you Dr. Berg for enlightening my mind and helping  me broaden my horizon. I give this book a 4 star EXCELLENT rating.

A rising tide of single women are forgoing traditional wedding vows and choosing the single life. In fact, 47 percent of young adults have never been married and the percentage includes more women than men.

Why Woman Should Stay Single (New Horizon Press, July 2012) by Orna Gadish, MSc, reveals a new list of options for modern women, provides alternatives to traditional marriage and enables women to carve their own paths in their professional and private lives.
DON’T SAY I DO! reveals how the sexual revolution set the stage for new life choices, how times have changed and how women can lead in today’s world, unfettered by the marriage chain. Gadish looks at the options, pluses and problems of unmarried women in fulfilling relationships, unmarried and married women in unhappy relationships, divorced women and women contemplating marriage. DON’T SAY I DO! provides tools, strategies and tips to encourage sexual, psychological and financial independence. It will inspire women to think for themselves, weigh what they need in a relationship, seriously consider alternatives to marriage and claim their strength in a new world in which women are no longer subordinates but men’s equals.

My Review:

I did not go into this review with a light heart. I find this subject something seriously personal to each and every person. I personally have been married for almost 33 years and have a good happy life. So, when I read this book, I thought I would hate it and yet wanted to see another view of marriage.

This book covers a wide variety of topics from marriage, to being unhappy in marriage. It covers being single, the pros and cons of marriage (which I personally thought was interesting).This book talks about choices, and women's roles in our society today. These topics are covered thoroughly and not so bias as I assumed would be, instead its an analysis of all the variety of role in which women today are part of, in this every changing society.

If you are someone looking to change your life, find your place after divorce or are a single lady who is interested in more variety and finding our ways to life a richer life then this book is for you. If you are someone who is happily married, it might not be something you'd like to read, although it is not a bad read.

The writing was clear, easy to read and well written. The subject matter seemed to be well researched and through out. I reviewed this book for Media Guests, I was not paid for this review, I this review is in my own words. I did receive a free copy of this book for review purposes.
