Fave Reads Friday #6: Mind, Body, and Bowl

I may change the name of Fave Reads Friday all together to fit better with the theme of this blog. Tell me what you think. I’m still behind on some reading, so some of these are a little older…..Here are some suggested readings for you to suit your

Mind

I’m still working on catching up on my blog roll reading and so this one is a little older, but still great! I totally agree with what Erin’s Inside Job is talking about here in all aspects of our life, it’s also why I hate the term “HEALTHY”.

Let’s Stop Labeling Habits

And another one from the ladies at Fit is a Feminist Issue which I needed to read that will be incorporated into a future TOLT post….

Act Now, Think Later (Guest Post)

Body

Because I’m already working on this area for improving my running and because STEPHANIE is one of my besties! I’ll be changing up my routine again in a few more weeks and some of these moves are ones I’m already doing and some will be subbing in.

and Bowl

Because I’m on a kick to try and figure out what kind of eating works best for me…I enjoyed this article from NASM

Protein for Vegetarian and Vegan Athletes

And I finally finished this book:

The End of Overeating by David Kessler, MD. This is not a diet book by any means, but it does help you understand why diets don’t work and what all is at play in your head and your body while you eat. If you’re not already upset with the food industry, this book will make you furious at the way that (at least in the US) they have such a blatant disregard for what is good for the consumer vs. what is good for business. The book also offers some really great strategies for rethinking the way that you eat although I disagree with a few of their recommendations. First, I never like to demonize foods (and they actually suggest doing that in one section) and second, I feel like food rules can become obsessive (they also address this issue). However, their “Food Rehab” plan is one that I am taking some notes on for working with my clients. I’m a big believer in the many different steps involved in behavior change and in cultivating discipline from within (we’ll talk more about this next month in Meditation Mondays) and this book has some great info and ideas on that topic.
