Review: Healthy as F*ck by Oonagh Duncan
Healthy as F*ck: The Habits You Need to Get Lean, Stay Healthy, and Kick Ass at Life - Oonagh Duncan

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

Healthy as F*ck is hands-down the best health and wellness book I’ve ever read. Author Oonagh Duncan is funny, relatable, and smart in her approach to wellness. The secret to weight loss isn’t a magic pill or a quick fix or an extreme diet. It’s all about the habits you form, the small changes that will ultimately shape your behavior and help you lose weight. Ms. Duncan provides simple guidelines that are easy to follow, but before you get to those I highly recommend doing the very few exercises she asks you to do on finding your why. Trust me, it’s something I would normally roll my eyes at but it was a far more powerful motivator than I could have imagined.

Ms. Duncan’s approach is the most commonsense one I’ve seen in a long time. Her conversational writing style is also incredibly appealing – she talks like my friends and I do. I’ve read Healthy as F*ck twice already and her voice is what draws me in from the start, making me more at ease and open to her ideas. That being said, if cussing bothers you then you may have a hard time with this book. As for me, I loved everything about this book. It has been the most helpful book on getting healthy I’ve ever read and Ms. Duncan’s writing is a joy to read. So if you’re looking for an approachable, motivational, commonsense approach on how to meet your long-term health goals, you cannot go wrong with Healthy as F*ck.

Review: Eff This! Meditation by Liza Kindred
Eff This! Meditation:108 Tips, Tricks, and Ideas for When You're Stressed Out, Anxious, or Overwhelmed - Liza Kindred

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

Eff This! Meditation is a handy quick guide with centering and mental grounding practices. It’s not really a book on meditation as the title suggests, but rather an accessible book of quick tips that you can use to help calm yourself. The practices range from a minute to more than an hour, which I appreciated. It’s something you can flip through and mark your favorites for when you’re feeling overwhelmed and/or stressed. Author Liza Kindred has a very easygoing, nonjudgmental voice and her tips and tricks are not going to scare anyone off. The practices Ms. Kindred lists aren’t new or innovative and I will say that I’ve seen many of them on Pinterest before. Still, taking Eff This! Meditation for what it is, it’s a good resource written in an accessible way that will appeal to anyone looking to have a few quick tips to help when they’re stressed or anxious.

THE LIFE YOU WERE MEANT TO HAVE – WHOLE BODY HEALTH

Unless you have an accident, this is the life you (if you are a human being reading these words) were pre-programmed to enjoy:

You were carried in the womb and born naturally through the vaginal canal to a healthy, loving mother who has all the necessary reserves and ingredients to create a healthy, happy child.

The requirements for rapid cell division in the womb such as nutrients, minerals, enzymes, fat-soluble vitamins, clean air, and water were present in ample amounts.  She has plenty of fats, vitamins, and minerals to provide a strong skeletal structure and a full, highly functional brain for you.

After about 9 months of full development the wondrous, awe-inspiring, joyful event of your birth occurs, naturally.  Your father is present at the birth, and his invaluable love and support bring strength to your mother creating a sense of peace during this crucial event.  As your birth begins, the cranial bones of your skull compress, so you may go through the birth canal.

Your journey through the birth canal coats you in your mother’s bacteria.  This first encounter with bacteria essentially creates the seeds of a healthy immune and nervous system.  You come out into the world, and the shock of leaving the loving warmth of your home inside your mother makes you cry.

This painful cry initiates your first breath, and opens your cranial bones and aligns the fascia of your body.  This is a major step towards a pain-free life.  Your father cries with joy, and can’t wait to hold you, but first, your mother cradles you, washes you, creating the all-important maternal bond.
This initial connection to your mother affirms that you are safe, and enveloped in love.  Maybe your first thought is, “Eh, not as good as her womb, but this goddess loves me, so, well enough.”  Your father holds you soon after, and you feel even more strength and security.  Your second thought might be, “This man is rough, feels strange compared to the maternal goddess.  Though he’s about 90% of her love, the other 10% is strength and authority.  He will protect me.  I respect and honor him.”

Up to your first 4 years, but at least 1, your mother breast feeds you.  Innately, you know her milk is perfectly designed.  It’s fully absorbable and takes no energy to digest.  Mother’s milk boosts your immune system with an incredible amount of enzymes and bacteria, providing you with a disease-free childhood; full of life-giving fats, minerals and nutrients everything is provided for perfect cellular division, thus you are growing bigger, and better every day.

Your digestive systems activate.  So you eat the animals and plants all around you that are converting the suns energy into usable nutrient and minerals.  Your childhood is free from major sickness and full of activity, sports, and laughter.  You are encouraged and loved by your parents.  They provide comfort and security.  You learn and are taught by them, and your strong community.

In childhood, you comprehend that you have amazing potential as an adult in life.  You develop beautiful straight teeth and a wide palate to hold them all.  You have no idea what a cavity is, and if you hear the word, you might think it’s a cave nearby to explore.  Your brain develops as you work out problems with imagination and the creative side of you is nurtured.  Your body and its cells perfectly utilize oxygen and the plentiful nutrients and minerals surrounding you, as you grow into healthy and functioning adulthood.

Your good cellular health provides tons of natural energy providing you a life full of motion as you constantly run, jump, swim, etc.  You’re fit, not small or large but perfectly proportionate according to the DNA your parents provided you.  Your posture is naturally straight.  Your skeletal system, brain, skin develop fulfilling your genetic potential.

No medication is ever necessary.

Your life emanates health and joy.  Kindness and love easily flow from you.  The opposite sex is attracted to your grace and energy.  You develop a healthy spirituality realizing the deep connection of your human relationships and imbued with a deep respect for the planets incredibly complex ecosystem.

You engage in a partner, and you become a loving, and fertile couple.  Sex is joyful and amazing.  Since your partner is probably as equally healthy as you, contraception is in congruence with the monthly cycles.  When you decide to reproduce, it is easy and without complication.

Your family life accomplishes the objects of your desire and cultivated will because you are strong, intelligent and fully capable at problem-solving.

You eat real food and never develop a taste for sugar, coffee, or junk food.  You don’t need excess medications, alcohol, or artificial ways of feeling good.

You get high on life.  Because of this, you get the best jobs, or better yet, create your own work and schedule, and make all the money you need and are generous and loving to others.

You rarely get sick, if ever.  You have little to no anxiety or depression though you cycle through normal human emotions.  Mostly, you’re just happy.

As you get older, your brain only grows sharper with wisdom and your body ages gracefully. You burden no one.  Actually, your friends and children argue over who gets to live with you as you are a joy to be around.  At 90-100 years of age, your body is pre-programmed to die quickly without pain.   You lived the life of what I call a golden god.  This is the life that is our birthright.

Review: The Spartan Way: Eat Better. Train Better. Think Better. Be Better. by Joe De Sena
The Spartan Way: Eat Better. Train Better. Think Better. Be Better. - Joe De Sena

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

The Spartan Way is a helpful, no-nonsense resource for anyone looking to make a change. No matter what your goal, Joe De Sena’s Spartan philosophy is something you can apply to your life. I loved Mr. De Sena’s passion – it comes through strong in this book and his dedication and enthusiasm is infectious. Self-Awareness, commitment, passion, discipline, prioritization, grit, courage, optimism, integrity, and “wholeness” are not new values or ideas, but the way they are presented is what separates this book from the pack. It’s intense, honest, and straightforward, which I really appreciated. I will note that some of the examples Mr. De Sena uses in this book are a bit extreme and the sample sizes in the studies he cites are sometimes rather low, but the core principals are good. If you want a good kick in the butt and helpful, easy-to-digest advice that will serve you well, I recommend The Spartan Way.
