A book has finally been written to address weight management and health in the family. The 4 Habits of Healthy Families will teach families of all shapes and sizes how to create meals that are healthy and enjoyable. Amy Hendel, lifestyle therapist and health expert, guides families through daily planning, preparation and proportion of food. But, what’s more, Amy has fought obesity herself and is also a busy, working mother. She brings personal credibility and expertise to an easy-to-follow and practical health guide.
The benefits of improving your family’s health don’t stop at a healthier, better-feeling family. As you practice Amy’s easy program, you’ll find your family gathering around the dining-room table more often and seeking out healthy activities to enjoy together. Health will become the platform for a stronger and more closely knit family.
In addition to invaluable sidebars and tips, The 4 Habits of Healthy Families is filled with easy and delicious recipes, sample grocery store lists and a plethora of other suggestions to minimize time and maximize output in the kitchen.
The 4 Habits of Healthy Families offers a generous amount of support from an author who has fought—and beat—obesity in her own family. Amy Hendel is showing the joys and advantages of making health a family affair.
