The author is a little bit cookoo for soup and dry brushing is a total scam but I like the idea of increasing your vegetable intake by eating veggie packed soups for lunch. I'm not sure there's any real science behind her claims of drinking hot lemon water first thing in the morning but it certainly won't hurt either. I'm not going to follow her path, but I just shoved a ton of vegetables into my scrambled eggs this morning and feel better about my day already! ...more
Het weekplan ziet er interessant uit en grotendeels draait dit boek ook hierom. Daarnaast staan er ook redelijk wat soeprecepten in, want mevrouw Heskett zweert erbij: eet bij de lunch soep! Ik zal eerlijk zeggen, met dat weekplan had ik niet zoveel, want afvallen is niet van toepassing momenteel. Maar als je een toegankelijke methode zoekt, dan is dit boek zeker een aanrader.

I am 66 and thin so I didn't read this book to lose weight, I read it to see if I could lengthen my telomeres or live healthy longer. I could drink the hot water in the morning, breathe deeply, brush my dry skin, although I really don't think it will make my cellulite disappear. I can eat the soups, which seem to be her favorite food and what she considers the most healthy of meals. They are full of all kinds of vegetables and lots and lots of ingredients. She didn't mention green tea! I will ha ...more

There is so much to like about Heskett's holistic approach to better health! I love that she stresses that this journey is a process, with many small lifestyle changes along the way, instead of a big, dramatic new diet, which is what we usually see. I have incorporated several of the first steps into my like and made a couple of her soup recipes. I don't know that I can accomplish all these steps within her suggested timeline, but I also appreciate that this is a flexible plan, and that the impo ...more

Full of great advice for staying healthy (hot lemon water, dry brushing, alternating hot & cold water in the shower, exercise, nutrition, proper sleep). All things that we know already but probably forget to do on a daily basis.

I found the book to make a lot of sense with making choices that you know you can and will live with. There were a couple surprise pieces of information, but I am definitely giving her concepts of

Everything about this book is absolutely fantastic! I am not only going to review this book... I am going to Do it! And I am going to blog about it. HERE -

I am so excited that I am going to do my review in several parts. First, in this one - I will just do a review of the book. Then next Friday (April 1) I will do a follow-up post and each week after that - I will tell you how I am using this book. I am already in a program that is working well for me, bu
What if you were invited to a party, but once you arrived you found out you couldn't have any cake until you had eaten a bowl of Brussels sprouts? You'd be pretty disappointed, right?

That's how I felt when starting The Well Path. I wanted the "cake" of how to reverse the aging process, but had to eat the "Brussels sprouts" of reading about the science first.

One of the problems I have with self-help books is that the author always wants to explain the science behind their theories. They want to e

Glad I listened to this one, although not read by the author still enjoyable. Appreciated her approach in the holistic view and the science behind things without feeling preachy or strict or overwhelming. Her love for soups is funny. The focuses is more on the aging process which was different than most books in this category and I liked that.

A wonderful book full of great information but not for me. When I started reading, I noticed the author was not expecting perfection or absolute adherence to her plan. That appealed to me. It seemed like it was going to be a set of guidelines that could be integrated into my life at a comfortable pace and for the most part it is. For my part, I still find I have great resistance to some of her suggestions. I have adopted some of them and feel good about those. The rest just turn me right off and ...more

I received this book from Goodreads in exchange for a review.

Filled with easy to follow and very do-able life changes, ‘The Well Path’ helps the reader understand her own body and the importance of getting her body into a state of balance, or homeostasis. I particularly enjoyed the recipes included at the end of the book. The week-by-week plan is uncomplicated and simple to follow. Author Dr. Haskett doesn’t overwhelm the reader with major changes that are off-putting and that would sabotage any
