My book review for January is for the book: “Lean Body, Fat Wallet; Discover the Powerful Connection to Help You Lose Weight, Dump Debt, and Save Money”, written by Ellie Kay and Danna Demetre, published by Thomas Nelson. The book retails for about $17.99 CDN at Chapters and was released on December 2nd, 2013.
I am always up for reading a “get fit” book around this time of year when “New Years Resolutions” are being made. I thought this book did a really good job of highlighting ways to effectively lose weight and also help one make better financial decisions. I enjoyed the personal quizzes, which let you know where you measured up and what changes you could implement in your life. One of my favorite chapters would be chapter one where they discuss habits, how to change them and why sometimes people fail doing so. Then through the book they discuss different habits and how to change them effectively and successfully. For me I was more interested in the losing weight aspect of this book as my financial situation is in a good place, but I found that the book had good simple reminders about both topics.
Overall, I did enjoy reading this book. It has some great health related tips and is very easy to understand. I give it a 5 out of 5.
