Energy Breakthrough: Jump-Start Your Weight Loss and Feel Great / (Weight Watchers)by Sarah The Duchess Of York and Ferguson
Synopses & Reviews
Today, with our supercomplicated, stress-filled lives, the one element we can all use more of is energy. In Energy Breakthrough: Jump-start Your Weight Loss and Feel Great, Sarah, The Duchess of York tells how she copes with her incredibly multifaceted life yet keeps her weight down, her body trim, and her energy at its peak. Together with the editors of Weight Watchers, The Duchess details how you can do the same with a combination of nutritious eating, effective exercise, and a positive state of mind.
Energy Breakthrough is divided into two parts: "Understanding Energy" and "Fueling Your Energy." Part 1: "Understanding Energy" analyzes the three facets that make up what The Duchess calls the "energy equation": good nutrition, regular exercise, and an upbeat attitude toward life. The chapters "Food as Fuel for Your Body and Mind" and "Eating for Energy" give the basics of nutrition and tell how to balance meals to achieve optimum vigor. "Recharging Your Batteries with Exercise" explains how, paradoxically, the more active you are, the more energetic you'll feel, while "A Workout to Rev Up Your Energy" provides a walking regimen that you can easily incorporate into your everyday life for years to come.
"Energy from the Inside Out" describes how sleep deprivation, stress, and emotional issues can affect energy, then supplies ways to overcome these problems. Finally, "Giving Yourself an Energy Makeover" offers myriad suggestions for keeping your energy flow in tip-top condition. Part 2: "Fueling Your Energy" presents more than 75 delicious yet simple recipes for appetizers, breakfasts and brunches, lunches, main meals, desserts, and snacks, illustrated with color photographs. Also included are 28 daily menus that combine the recipes with still more luscious preparation ideas — all designed to yield optimum energy and weight loss. The menus and recipes, based on the popular Weight Watchers Winning Points weight-loss plan, include POINTS® values.
Chock-full of hints, tips, lists, quizzes, and profiles of everyday people who have successfully incorporated the Weight Watchers plan into their lives — and, of course, The Duchess of York's heartfelt support — Energy Breakthrough is a book you'll turn to again and again for healthy advice and encouragement.
