As a nation, we are obsessed with skinny and have been conditioned to associate health with size, in other words, skinny = healthy. A size 0 with a 24-inch waistline is illustrated in magazines and on billboards as the picture of good health. Meanwhile, adjacent those billboards are ads promoting fast, fatty, and unhealthy foods that lead to weight gain and cardiovascular disease. How can one maintain health and find a happy medium?
In her book, Dr. Volcy reveals that happy medium by redefining the myth that skinny is healthy while encouraging proper diet, exercise, self-love, and self-acceptance. She offers a complete and revolutionary mind-body guide to wellness with substantial knowledge, methods, and tools to embrace health and release the idea that one must be skinny to be healthy. She then incorporates three fundamental approaches to health, which she integrates into a 12-week comprehensive program to aid in the pursuit of health.
Those three approaches include:
1. Healthy Diet
2. Healthy Muscle-to-Fat Ratio
3. Healthy Balance
When all three are combined continuously and consistently, everyone can achieve optimal health and attain freedom from chasing skinny.
