Real Moms Love to Eat:
How to Conduct a Love Affair with Food, Lose Weight and Feel Fabulous

When I read the title for this book, I knew I had to read it! Author Beth Aldrich offers a new approach to dieting, nutrition, and living a healthy lifestyle. In her book, she offers a 10-week program that makes little changes along the way to help you live a healthier, more balanced life in regards to food. I love that Beth understands firsthand what it’s like to be a busy mom, and what it’s like to love to eat! Real Moms Love to Eat ReviewDon’t we all? Yet so many dieting books are about depriving yourself of the foods you love, which just makes life miserable and honestly makes the diet doomed to fail. Beth suggests, on the other hand, that you CAN have the foods you love — just in moderation, and included in a diet that is centered around all the good-for-you foods your body needs to be healthy.

I like that her book takes the 10-week program in strides. When I think of a 10-week program, my first reaction is that is must be a crash course  diet in which you starve yourself and try to lose as much weight in 10 weeks as possible, and then you go back to your normal lifestyle. Which of course is ridiculous (but let’s face it, we’ve all tried that at some point or another). Beth’s program is FAR from being a crash course diet however, and she makes little suggestions along the way that leads to a whole new lifestyle and way of eating and thinking about food. Each week you are presented with just 5 new things to do. For example, two of the things you are told to do in Week 6 are: “Try a new dessert made of fruit,” and, “Reserve sweet foods for only one time per day. Make it special!”Real Moms Love to Eat Review I like that the whole book is about making small baby steps that, several weeks down the road, get you to a much healthier (and slimmer!) place.

Beth also provides many healthy recipes in the book in a complete 3-week meal plan to get you on track with eating delicious food that helps you lose weight and feel fabulous. I love that the book isn’t about starving yourself or even depriving yourself, but rather it’s focused on falling in love with the right kinds of foods while still allowing yourself to have a treat now and then.

Overall, it’s a great book, really well written, and I enjoyed the fresh approach and found many of Beth’s suggestions very helpful!

  11. Christine L says:

    You should definitely not starve or deprive yourself to lose weight or get healthy. Your body will not cooperate. Healthy recipes and a good routine are the way to go. This book has a great title. I hope it catches the eye of many women wanting to eat real food and be healthy doing it.

  12. ericka coello says:

    I am so bad in the kitchen, it seems like this book can help me

  13. I really like how this is a gradual change to your diet. I think it would definitely help someone that is not accustomed to eating great all of the time.

  14. I would really like this for some ideas on easy, healthy food – I usually just grab whatever’s available.

  15. I totally love the title to this book.

    Glad to hear that her 10 week program doesn’t sound like some sort of crazy crash diet, which seems to be the case with most similar programs.

  16. Whitney McQuarry says:

    Like you, the title alone makes me want to read it the book. I have found that baby steps often work well for me and I am curious to see what kinds of small changes can be made. A little at a time makes things not seem so bad.

  17. Marlena Weers says:

    If I don’t win this contest I think I may go buy this anyways. I am always looking for good recipies and am trying to lose my baby weight. I think this may be just my way of doing it

  18. Baby steps to healthy is always a good plan!

  19. Kathleen Quinlan says:

  21. Tian Kinasih says:

    I’m a mother and I love to eat! Maybe that’s the reason I haven’t got back my old shape yet! Must-read list, :)

  22. This book looks like it would be really helpful! I believe that moderation is key, but that is hard to get used to sometimes. I love food, too!

  23. Seraphina Smith says:

    This seems like the book for me.

  24. Neat! I refuse to diet for many of the reasons you listed above. I try to pay attention to my body’s needs and make good decisions. This book is exactly the kind of tool I could use! I like that it’s about little changes that you can celebrate achieving instead of things to beat yourself up over. Thank you for reviewing this book!
