48 Hour Contest: Beth Aldrich’s Real Moms Love to Eat

The No-Diet Approach to 2012: Who loves to eat and is tired of the idea of dieting? Here’s a solution I can live with: Love what you eat and look good doing it. Enter to win one of three copies of Beth Aldrich’s new book, Real Moms Love to Eat: How to Conduct a Love Affair with Food, Lose Weight and Feel Fabulous (Penguin Books, NAL, January, 2012).

I’m always on the go but want to eat healthy so I don’t have to do two spin classes in a day to undo the crazy eating that happens between breakfast and dinner. Let’s face it, I’m not going to give up dessert or live on carrot sticks, so when I came across Beth’s book, I gave out a little cheer (yay!) for Real Moms everywhere. I mean, we have to eat three times a day anyway, right? So why not enjoy what we’re eating without all of the guilt? Beth offers us five simple suggestions each week to help us reach our health goals, whether it be to lose some weight, or gain more energy (what mom can’t use more energy?)

She leads us to a self-discovery of the foods we already have deep connections with (or cravings for) and helps us moderate and integrate them into healthier versions of themselves; she’ll acquaint you with new, delicious foods that may even change your whole food attitude. Complete with 100 pages of lick-the-back-of-the-fork delicious recipes, you’ll be saying hello to those skinny jeans hidden in the back of your closet AND that dessert on date night!
