I have to start out this review by mentioning that I quickly realized a few pages in that I am NOT the right demographic for this book. I believe this book is geared toward young adults, likely in their 20s. A lot of it simply wasn’t meant for me. Having said that, there’s a lot of useful conversation in this book to guide a young adult on journey toward better wellness. It’s written in an engaging conversational style. There are a lot of reference to celebrity athletes, media personalities, act ...more

I have been on a health journey so when I saw the book i was encouraged. However I felt that this book is geared to a different demographic and to me, that should have been mentioned before you request it. And maybe they can make a change. I did get some things I could pick out but all in all, not for me.

This book is an easy and relatively quick read, and advocates getting your mindset right before trying to get fit and lose weight. Why? Because if you approach weight loss from the wrong angle, if you expect too much too soon, then you often fail, and the more you fail, the more your mind sets you up to fail again ("you tried this last time and it didn't work, remember?"). The voice inside your head will encourage you to fail because you failed before. It doesn't believe in you - so first you ne ...more

I was taken in by the title of this book and wondered just how the author came to advocate for filling the mind before filling the plate. So, as I started reading, I immediately connected with the author's journey of fitness, healthy eating, living and more so how he constantly challenged himself to be better.
The tone is friendly.
The insights are drawn from life experiences and other experts as well, so if you've read a couple of self help books then you'd definitely come across some insights he

Book Takeaways

I honestly found this book very helpful in framing my mindset. Faisal's insights presented in this book showed me the guidelines on how to effectively lead a healthy and mindful way of life. To me, his philosophy on "The Healthy Life" starts and ends with the mind.

This book will help you figure out the following:
- Ways to increase healthspan.
- Finding your goal.
- Finding your role models.
- How to breakdown your goal into smaller milestones.
- How to bring calmness into your life.

In FILL YOUR MIND BEFORE YOU FILL YOUR PLATE, Faisal Alshawa shares his story, the journey he took and the discoveries he made in finding a robust life filled with energy, positivity, and joy. His contagious enthusiasm and stalwart encouragement are singular--I imagine he would be an incredible coach for a person to work with in finding their own path to wellness. Unfortunately -- and this is a book killer for me -- the insights and gems are overwhelmed by trite, simplistic, and common knowledge ...more

Fill your Mind before you fill your plate is a guide to sustaining a healthy lifestyle. Faisal Alshawa completed his own personal transformation using the Five Pillars for a Healthier Lifestyle documented in this book. He encourages the reader to establish SMART goals for behavior change in order to achieve the goals that you've set forth. He clearly explains each of the Five Pillars throughout the book and provides vignettes from his own life/journey to a healthy lifestyle. This book was easy t ...more

If you can get past the arrogance, all the trust-me's and believe-me's, the ramblings, etc, there are a few useful tid-bits of information, strategies, and interesting quotes, but they hardly seem worth the effort to wade through the pages upon pages of self-aggrandizing fluff. A few examples of how the author applied a strategy to his own situation would be helpful and worthwhile, but this book is an exercise in the author patting his own back and employing cheap sales gimmicks along the way.

This book is excellent for anyone needing ideas about how to focus their minds and achieve results. The short chapters, targeted at specific steps, are easy to read. The wording allows beginners to understand meanings without needing a dictionary.

I did find the book useful but found myself focusing a lot of the time on the references to how young the author appeared to be. Many university-time changes are mentioned, which being almost 50 made me feel like I was too old to make many of the chang

I really like the tome of this little book. It is practical and helpful without being judgemental or patronising. Helpful hints and a useful guide to mindfulness and a healthier way of looking at food.
