This book opens each section with a quiz to analyze what stage of fitness I was at. I liked that. At the end of each section are a few bullet-pointed goals according to which stage I fell in from the quiz. I think I'd like to eventually buy this for that reason: it would be helpful to have the baby-step goals to work on. In some sections I was 'fit to live' or 'ready for challenge,' while in others I was 'barely alive.'

I like how she doesn't place an age or restrictions on health status, etc. Sh

Excellent way to holistically lose weight and improve your whole life. Learned a few things to do that have nothing to do with eating or exercise.
Overall, this was an inspiring read. It is written in a conversational tone with many side notes and success stories from Dr Peeke's patients. The downside was the emphasis on walking outside (it's winter in Chicago) and family/children. There were parts of the self-evaluations that were not suited for singles. I would recommend this as a quick read for someone that wants to remind themselves to take care of body, mind, spirit and the space around them.
Not bad. Perhaps not the best book to read right after Intuitive Eating since in some respects they are very opposite on some views. Overall not a bad book however. Definitely written to appeal to the quick reader. I kind of enjoyed her all point approach in that she has the reader look at their whole lives, not just food. For example she does a similar quiz for scoring where you stand on your finances (that was a scary one for me! Way too much work to do in that arena.

This is the third book I've read by Dr. Peeke and she builds on the previous 2 titles. Her views on shedding weight have not changed and she has expanded them. I wasn't expecting the lifestyle coach. ie. Are you physically fit to live? ====Are you financially fit to live?----Are you environmentally fit to live? She makes some very interesting and thought provoking comparisons.

Recommends it for: you if you need motivation to get fit
Recommended to Donna by: I met the author when she spoke at a conference
Many people loose their lives in disasters because they are out of shape - can't hold their body weight or balance, don't have the upper body strength to pull someone else up or can't make it down the stairs when the building is on fire.
Everyone has their reason to exercise or not - knowing how your fitness can save your life is a new way of looking at it.
This is a really good book. I heard Dr. Peeke speak at a conference a few years back and was so inspired I bought her book. I have since read this book twice as it has a lot of great holistic content covering 'being fit' physically, mentally, nutritionally, financially and environmentally. A keeper on my bookshelf!
It was the best overall health/wellness book I've read yet!
