Blogtastic Extravaganza: Alpine Weight Loss Secrets Book - Early Entry Review & Giveaway

 

I wish I could say I was one of those lean people that could eat like a horse and stay stick thin - do they really exist except on the cover of a magazine?  I'm a regular working Mom with a pear shaped body womanly curves and have to work hard at keeping those curves in check, especially with a sedentary job.  My goal for this year is to score enough Amazon gift cards through swagbucks, surveys and blogging activities to enable me to order an ipad.  Then I'll strap that bad boy onto my elliptical dashboard and be able to workout and blog at the same time.  You may laugh but I exist on such little sleep during the week nights lately and I still have a million and one things to do, so if by multitasking I can cross off two items in one fell swoop then I'll take it.  I'm a firm believer that you do have to work hard to stay healthy and fit and it requires balance of diet and excercise.  If there was one quick and simple fix, wouldn't we all be walking around with a six pack and in a bikini?  Jennifer Aniston doesn't stay looking like she does with a miracle pill, its called a personal trainer, yoga and the zone diet.  Unfortunately for a majority of us, the money for a personal trainer and chef is not readily available.

My newest sponsor for the Blogtastic Extravaganza giveaway event is Stefan Aschan, Author of Alpine Weight Loss Secrets.  Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Stefan's approach to healthy living has been shaped by his Alpine upbringing, where many of his fellow villagers in their 90s are in fantastic health and living independently. 


Upon review of his book, I went straight to Chapter 8 - A Flat Belly (LOL).  I was excited to see a great plan laid out for a flat belly.  Of course it will take hard work but the initial step - 2 day Alpine cleanse didn't look too bad.  This involves drinking mostly liquids such as vegetable juices, teas, and water followed by a third day of slowing introducing solids.  Then Stefan introduces flat belly excercises and tips.  Wow - I have to give up gum now - it promotes swallowing air, which can bloat your belly.  The other chapters such as Eat Yourself Thin and Improve your Fat-itude are equally enlightening.

In our busy society today we lose focus of what we eat and our bodies as we work hard to live the American dream.  Reading this book reminds me that I have to feed and work on my body first.  Its a wonderful and easy read and certainly one that I will be referring to often as I continue to keep my curves in check.
