4 Weeks to a New You & New Life: Younger; Stronger, Slimmer Lifestyle.


Must read 🏆

4 Weeks to a New You & New Life is nothing short of a health and beauty manual. It will help you lose weight, be healthier and happier.

Did you know stress management, exercise and water can have a dramatic effect on how you feel and how you look?

Eva Sundene's book, 4 Weeks to a New You & New Life, offers an entire reference guide in the changes you can make to not only lose weight, eight and be healthier, but also feel and look years younger, reversing the aging process.

A founder of Shape-Up Magazine and NHSA, Norwegian Health & Spa Academy, shares years of experience with diet, exercise, vitamins and minerals, and stress reduction. In her book, she says if you stick with the plan you can not just slow down the aging process, but also reverse it, making you look years younger in as little as four weeks. While it's not a hard regimen to follow, it will take diligence and planning. It starts with mind control - this is not a diet but a lifestyle change.

All of the steps are intertwined, but you should start with detoxing your body. Key to this success is drinking lots, and I mean lots, of water. She offers several easy to follow recipes that will help you achieve this. Once detox is over, she offers another barrage of easy to prepare recipes that will help you continue on your journey. Additionally, she outlines the benefits of various essential vitamins and minerals, as well as the side effects for having a deficiency. She explains sunscreen can block the absorption of Vitamin D, and it might be a good idea to wait 10 minutes or so before applying sunscreen.

Other things she pointed out that piqued my interest were:

- Fat has more volume than muscle, and if you alter the ratio between fat and muscle, you will reduce your size and measurements without losing any body fat. Doesn't that explain why we lose inches, but the scale does not move.

- It takes six weeks to rejuvenate the cells in our liver, and up to one year for our brain.

- Alcohol is not digested through the stomach, but through the liver, and it actually dehydrates the body. While red wine contains antioxidants that are good for the body in moderation, white wine does not contain those same beneficial effects.

This is a great reference book. Unlike many 'diet' books, her plan incorporates many DIY suggestions, including olive oil, avacados, and cucumbers for skin care. There's lots more suggestions for DIY from hair to skin care to exercise, which includes stretching like a cat when you first get out of bed.
