"Fitness isn't a job or an obligation," writes Joanie Greggains. "It's the natural result of making good, positive lifestyle choices every day." Sounds simple, right? Yet millions of Americans have succumbed to a life of chronic exhaustion, extra pounds, and feelings of personal failure. In Fit Happens, Greggains gets you psyched, keeps you motivated, and creates a fun, easy-to-follow plan for becoming thinner, happier, and healthier. As she says, "Create a healthy lifestyle from the things you love, and it will last a lifetime."
Greggains has been at the forefront of the fitness movement for nearly twenty years, and she knows the facts, fictions, and fads of feeling better. Fit Happens looks at the fundamentals to create a holistic ap-proach to health and reminds us that starting small is often the best way to make lasting changes in your life. Fit Happens covers such topics as:
¸ How much--and how--you should exercise
¸ Fitting fitness into your schedule
¸ How to burn that fat
¸ Getting the most from the foods you eat
¸ How not to be dazzled by fad diets
¸ Fats: unlocking the right combination
¸ Thirteen "health" foods that aren't
¸ The facts about vitamins, minerals, and supplements
¸ The chemistry behind food cravings--and how to beat it
¸ Getting a better night's sleep
¸ How not to sabotage your fitness plan
Along the way, Greggains provides us with personal anecdotes, easy-to-read charts, and fascinating tidbits (did you know that salt can alleviate back pain, and that peppermint is an appetite suppressant?) as she gives you the motivation and information you need to make fit happen.
