Description of Product: “In her new book, “Skinny is Overrated,” physician and author Dr. Danielle Milano encourages women to get healthy and learn to love the size they are, and to disregard society’s pressures to fit into a certain mold. Humorously and conversationally written for the everyday woman, “Skinny is Overrated” offers simple and effective tips and recipes for women looking to live healthier lives. Providing 10 easy changes such as eliminating sodas and finding an enjoyable physical activity, Dr. Milano pushes women to embrace a lifestyle that will help them be healthier, have more energy and maybe even lose some weight in the process.”

Review of Product: I enjoyed this book.  It was well-written and the concept is a good one.  It advocates a healthy lifestyle to make you more happy and healthy without being so concerned about the number on the scale.  Most of the tips are obvious ones but the author gives ways to implement them that were interesting to me.  This book isn’t a diet book or a fitness book – it’s a book about how to live well.  It wasn’t at all preachy or condescending and I appreciated the frank tone and practicality of the advice.
