The Standard American Diet is no role model nor has it proven to be healthy for anyone following it. There’s an epidemic of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, auto-immune diseases and the list can go on and on. Rearranging the foods on the Standard America Diet is like rearranging the furniture on the Titanic, you’re still going down. We are responsible for our own lives and need to do our own research on eating and living a healthier life. For many of us, we want to change, but we just don’t know where to start. Enter Make Your Won Rules Diet.
Author, Tara Stiles has a fun and healthy approach to living life and feeding our bodies. How many diet programs have you bought? Or signed up for? Did they work for some, but not you even though you followed it carefully? There is no one diet or program that will fit or work with everyone’s needs, we are all unique and require out own dietary regime.
The idea is to get tapped in and tuned in to your own intuition, listening to what your body wants and being guided to create your own rules that are in harmony with you. This is the premise of the book, to let your inner knowing be your source of guidance. The plan is broken down into four parts that hone in on three areas, the mat, the cushion, and the kitchen. The mat is all about yoga and stretching your body. As adults, we are nowhere near as flexible as we were in our youth. We are encouraged to start small and work our way up to more advanced stretches and poses, but the key is to do what we can. The cushion is as it may infer, is about meditation. You’ll learn about posture, breathing, and mantras. The kitchen is about filling your pantry with vibrant and enzyme-rich foods and creating delicious meals that will nourish every cell in your body.
If your ready to get started, Chapter 9 offers a 7-day quick-start program that will give you a taste of the program all put together. If you’re ready for a bigger launch, Chapter 10 offers a 30-day real-deal transformation plan. Each day has the meals, including desserts planned out for you. Also scheduled in your day are two yoga workouts and an evening meditation. The book is punctuated with tips, techniques, and numerous guidelines to get you to your ultimate goal.
