BodyFueling® (Warner, 1994) offers an eye-opening, easy-to-apply basic education on how the human body uses food as fuel. It also examines the massive failure of healthy-eating/fitness education in America, and provides solutions.
BodyFueling® is user-friendly education on purposeful eating, both for high performance and joyful satisfaction. BodyFueling® ends body ignorance, confusion and what Robyn Landis has termed "diet thinking," so people begin to fuel their lives instead of nearsightedly trying to "fix their bodies.
For years, "diet thinking" has kept Americans on a regimen of denial and suffering-and in the dark about their bodies. The BodyFueling® approach delivers peace with food issues, joy in eating, and the end of confusion, ignorance and "diet thinking." Look and feel great, increase longevity, and have food be a source of pleasure and energy instead of a problem.
Landis' approach--a combination of thorough education about the human body and a positive, empowering perspective on investing in one's body, health, and future--leaves readers really wanting to eat and exercise in the ways that really matter to longevity, fitness and energy. Landis also reveals a stunning portrait of the real state of mind of the American consumer, and presents a compelling means for bridging the information gap.
In BodyFueling® you learn why frequently eating lots of food is necessary for fat loss, muscle gain, energy and health; why your weight is meaningless; calories irrelevant, why it's OK to eat for pleasure, emotional fulfillment or comfort.
In BodyFueling® you discover what few diet books, health professionals or media ever explain:
BodyFueling® gives people the tools and inspiration they need to eat for high performance, health and fitness-to make today's most widely-urged dietary changes. It combines scientific information, context, structure and support so people can make "fueling the body" a priority and a rewarding way of life.
BodyFueling® material is based on longstanding principles of human physiology and biochemistry. Landis synthesizes, organizes and presents this science so it is understandable and applicable, put in perspective. Simple, scientifically-based facts illustrate what kind of eating works to literally "fuel" the human body, and why.
BodyFueling® also encourages people to develop a lifelong vision for their fitness and health, to make a connection between what we eat and whether we fulfill our planned futures-a compelling long-term context that goes beyond short-term goals. This unique and highly successful approach presents eating as a way of investing in the body and emphasize that eating is normal, not something to be suppressed or "cut back."
After 14 months in hardcover reaching the top 10 on numerous regional bestseller lists (including number 3 on the Seattle Times bestseller list), there are now well over 100,000 copies in print (hardcover plus paperback). BodyFueling® has been published in five countries and was an alternate selection of the Prevention, Doubleday and Literary Guild book clubs.
A NOTE ABOUT THESE READER AND PARTICIPANT COMMENTS:
These are real comments from real people. They came from phone calls and letters from people who have read the book, and from participant comments after workshops/seminars and on speaking evaluations and surveys. Some of these comments are also from the media, fitness trainers, doctors and teachers. Most of them are from people just like you who found something here they'd found nowhere else.
Pay special attention to the nature of these testimonials! They are unique--because what BodyFueling® does is unique. These comments are, in fact, what caught the attention of the editor who acquired BodyFueling® for Warner Books. She called because she saw something special and different in these comments than you generally see in "diet book" testimonials, and she was intrigued.
Note what a different quality they have than the usual "Wow!!! I
lost X lbs in X days!!!" Note people's emphasis on the new quality
of their experience of eating; their feeling of being empowered, inspired
and informed about food, health, and their bodies; their grasp of what
it means to be healthy and take care of themselves; their heightened sense
of responsibility for their bodies and their commitment to investing in
their health through eating and exercise; their expanded big-picture view
of how nourishing themselves today bears on the long-term future--and
their newfound freedom, joy and "choicefulness" in healthy eating.
The original BodyFueling® went out of print in early 1999 (inexplicably, after 5 years and over 100,000 copies; Amazon told Warner Books, "We're puzzled--BodyFueling® is a very consistent seller.") So, iUniverse reprinted the book. Since 2000, this version of BodyFueling® has been in bookstores. You can get the book everywhere, but ordering using the links below helps maintain this site.
