Health 4 Life Book Review

by ADC - Gail

Dr. Jody Wilkinson’s book Health 4 Life addresses the four aspects of health:  physical, spiritual, mental and emotional. 

There are many things that I find appealing about this practical book.  The book is written in an easy-to-read format.  I appreciate books that aren’t written as just one paragraph after another. 

Health 4 Life contains short chapters, sub-headings, charts, graphs, and bullet points.  Thus, it makes it easy to look for specific information, rather than hunting through a sea of words.

In her book, Dr. Wilkinson provides insight and practical pointers on how to achieve total wellness.  Some of the topics that she covers include:

  • Eating healthy while dining out or on vacation
  • Preventing serious diseases, such as heart disease or high blood pressure
  • Dealing with stress
  • Understanding portion control
  • Hints for fitting in more exercising throughout the week
  • Grocery shopping guidelines
  • Overcoming obstacles that interfere with working out

If you’re just beginning your fitness journey, Health 4 Life is a great tool! 

You’ll gain a lot of practical ideas in regards to how to eat healthy and starting a workout routine.  Yet, the book is also beneficial for those who have been focusing on their health for awhile. 

I believe any reader will gain some new ideas and confirmation on things that you’re doing right.

One of my favorite things about the book is that most any excuse that a person can give for not eating right or exercising are addressed by Dr. Wilkinson. 

In other words, excuses just don’t cut it.  We need to be willing to address whatever barriers are in our way and stay focused on our goals.

Health 4 Life is a little over 200 pages, but a very quick read.  Out of all the diet and fitness books sitting on my shelves, this one gets the most use.  I highly recommend it!

Yeah!  A practical book that deals with every day struggles!  I like it!!!  Like you, I want to be able to easily read a book and get the main points.  Guess I’ll have to pay a visit to Amazon and check it.  Thanks!

I read this book recently and have to agree that it’s very practical.  I actually use it as a guide and probably refer to it at least once every couple of weeks.  I thought I was unique in some of excuses, but discovered that I’m not.  I recommend the book!
