Another health book that turns conventional wisdom on its head about what is healthy and not healthy to eat if you want to lose weight. Eat fat! Healthy fat that is, like cooking with coconut, avocado and sesame oils; eating nuts, avocados, eggs, and much more that you were told not to eat. Cut out the gluten and increase your fats and you will get thin and healthy and you will keep it off! Food What the Heck Should I Eat is even a better book to take back your health.
I am a guest of Mary Anne Yarde today, and she asked me what inspires me to write. Check it out.
I'm severely allergic to most animals, including fish, horses, cats and dogs. I've owned fish and dogs all throughout my life, but only became allergic to them after a stem cell transplant in 2003. Now, we can no longer have either, except for a pure poodle. We can't even have a cross, like a Weimerdoodle.
We tried. We got this adorable pup that we named Charlie, and after explaining my circumstances to the breeder, he offered to let us have the pup but if there was ever a risk to my health in the first year, we would be able to give him back to a good, safe home. Unfortunately, within just a few weeks, I became severely ill - barely able to breathe, an unfortunate vomiting and pneumonia type illness, that could only be explained by the poor dog. So, we sadly had to give Charlie back to the breeder, who was kind enough to promise that he would be rehomed.
Eventually, we found a pure poodle, in our Bracken, and my health has been fine with him.
I read reviews. *ducks for cover* Some break your heart and others mend it. One of the first things an author has to do after publishing their first book is to decide if they're going to read reviews. It's hard not to be curious, but it's even harder if you end up reading something that hurts you. The best lesson I ever learned in publishing was never to reply to a review. It can only lead to disaster. Now, I just sit back, sneak a peek at them as they roll in after release and then I don't read any more, after that. I like to see the initial reaction, but try not to obsess about it, too much.
