A new health and fitness book, “Lean Body, Smart Life,” by wellness expert and speaker Judith “Judes” Scharman Draughon, MS, RDN, LD, takes advantage of her 30 years of experience as a registered dietitian nutritionist with the latest scientific research.
“I’ve identified the 12 most important fixes to help you take charge of your health, take off fat, and feel better – all without being on a diet. These 12 fixes are your formula for a leaner body and a smarter, healthier life,” she said. “Rather than another fad diet, this is a plan for life that helps you enjoy food without guilt.”
The colorful, richly illustrated book is packed with practical tips, 36 how-to videos, and delicious, easy recipes. The book includes:
– Which foods to eat to burn body fat
– Which foods to track (instead of calories)
– When to eat and drink for optimal results (it does matter!)
– What small, seemingly insignificant actions lead you to eat less
– Which foods to buy at the grocery store, restaurants, convenience stores, and even airports
– How to prepare whole, tasty foods, super fast (cooking formulas included)
– The best exercise approach to make a real difference
The book also comes with 14 exercise videos, 10 how-to food videos and a video for each of the 12 fixes. The Lean Body, Smart Life App to help you track your progress is coming soon.
The crux of the book is her 12-Fix Lean Life Plan which she says is the key to losing fat, reducing inflammation, and preventing disease. This plan includes six fixes that refer to what foods to eat, one about what to drink, two fixes on how to eat, one fixes about when to eat, and the two fixes about exercising and sleeping.
Each fix comes with healthy action plans and two delicious recipes after each chapter.
Also included is a shopping, cooking and fitness chapter to help you easily and deliciously adopt the 12-Fix Lean Life Plan into your life.
