Stop Dieting and Start Living (August 6, 2016)
Sarah O’Connell and Dave Kruger interview Millbrook Rotarian Ellie Savoy, author of the International Best-Seller Stop Dieting, Start Living: 5 Foundations for your Health to Permanently Lose Weight Without Dieting, Starvation, or Suffering in Silence, as well as portions of other self-help books. Ms. Savoy is a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach who not only coaches individuals, but also offers short courses. Her life took a turn for the better in 2011, when—30 pounds overweight—she face possible surgery, but decided to practice healthy eating and a better lifestyle instead. She has a lot of common-sense advice, which most of us would do well to follow. The basic program is to stop dieting and make the best choices in food and lifestyle. Exercise and sleep are also important, but should be routine rather than taking a special effort. Good health is everyone’s number-one asset in life, so make your own body your first priority.
