Book Review: Trim Healthy Mama Plan

Have you ever asked a committee of 4 or 5 women who were very interested in something to tell you about it?  From a man’s perspective you get 8 perspectives at once all trying to say the same thing from different angles.  Thankfully, The Trim Healthy Mama Plan, is only written by two women so you only get 3 or 4 perspectives.  Over 200 pages long, I believe it could be shortened to well under 100 if all of the “fluff” is removed.  The introduction states that this book is written by women for women and I believe them.  I was often mentally exhausted after finishing a chapter.  However, for a woman this book most likely speaks to their soul by bouncing around like Tigger in a trampoline park.  Most women do not read a book cover to cover and in order and this book follows that model to a “T.”

Once I stumbled through the fluff, the repeated info, and the seemingly contradictory info, I was left with good information to begin a new way of eating. As my wife and I discussed the ideas, she often would give new information that is not in the book.  The information came from their various Social Media sites.  This frustrated me.  Why wade through this massive pile of spaghetti, when the website had a bulleted list containing the actual info you need?  The book even suggests checking out their sites.

At the end of the day, the plan is good.  This book is still better than the original.  Save some money and go to the internet to learn the basics.

I received a copy of this book from “Blogging for Books” for this review.
