Girls Living Healthy is a new book written by Gabrielle Hewson, designed as a resource for girls and women of all ages (8-108), in which she shares her personal research on how to live a more nutritious and fulfilling life, in a humorous and down-to-earth way. "I not only want to be a strong role model for my daughter; I also want to be a mentor for all the fabulous girls out there in hope that they might be able to avoid some of the nutrition - and other - mistakes I've made along my continuing journey. This book was created as a fun way for girls and women to get real about what it means to be female and to discover healthier ways to nourish their bodies and their lives."
The book begins with a discussion about our F-Factor; all that represents us as girls, particularly the many facets of our femininity from body chemistry to how we choose to conduct ourselves, and the milestones we share. Its primary focus is on nutrition including establishing a definition between foods and "foods," digging deep into the chemistry of addictive "foods" and the benefits of whole foods and their nutrients, and provides information about nutritional practices from healthful to harmful. In addition, Girls Living Healthy also deciphers the intentions behind the chaos we are bombarded with daily through advertising and marketing, addressing some of these influences as they pertain to our nutrition, mindset, and lifestyle choices.
Girls Living Healthy offers a place for all girls to begin empowering themselves to be the healthiest and very best they can be. The book has been described by some as a "bible of information" and "the perfect way to get started on a healthier life." It offers information to help the reader make the best decisions about how to eliminate the toxins in their life from the book's primary focus on nutrition to other important aspects of being girls today including our beliefs, our social interaction, and balancing our lifestyle. "This book was a labor of love written with my daughter, Phoebe, and all the girls in both our lives, in mind. I hope they will read the information I share with them, learn, question, and do more research on their own. When they learn how to nurture themselves, the benefits for them and everyone around them are positively life-changing and truly endless."
