I’m not really a dieter. I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to eat most anything in moderation and still maintain a decent body weight. And I really don’t like the word diet or all of the emphasis in this country on dieting. I think a healthier outlook on eating and body image would do the U.S. a lot of good. I grew up in Germany where most women didn’t diet either. What they did seem to do: cook together, eat real food, and linger at the table.
Well…I know that reality is a little different here in the U.S. so I was excited to see a new book by Jennifer Tuma-Young called Balance Your Life, Balance the Scale: Ditch Dieting, Amp Up Your Energy, Feel Amazing, and Release the Weight – a book about losing weight without resorting to diets.
