TUGBOAT: My Voyage Out Of Obesity
by: Cheryl Long
I recently won this ebook through Treasures From A Shoebox giveaway, and to be honest, I was more curious than interested. You see, I already take Shaklee supplements (the best all-natural supplements on the market in my opinion) and have noticed a major difference in my health (my skin disease, headaches, leg pain from being ran over) - all 100% better!
However there is one major problem I still can't seem to get a handle on when it comes to nutrition..... and that is my weight. While I have never been thin, I have been healthy, but that's been about 7 yrs ago.
I love to bake (I've got chocolate No Bake cookies cooling on the kitchen counter as I write this) and cook big country style meals for my family. With taking care of our little hobby farm, milking goats, gardening, canning, caring for my family of five, a special needs child, and running my home business, I always manage to put my health on the back burner, by making bad eating choices, no portion self control and by not exercising.
Now, please let me insert here that Shaklee has an amazing Weight loss program and it WORKS! So, you may ask if it really does work, why am I not using it? The truth..... while I love the program and the snack and meal bars, I have a strong distaste for the shakes.
While reading Chery Longs book, Tugboat: My Voyage Out Of Obesity, the thought struck me.... why not try this method to gain control of my weight?
I love that Cheryl shares her personal journal with the readers. She tells everything, up front and honest. I like all the live juice recipe's, tips, Q&A section and encouragement.
This book is very easy to read, short and complete. Cheryl shows the reader that they can follow what she has done and get healthy results. Not only does she share her results, she also shares the results of her husband and three of her daughters - what worked and what didn't.
Cheryl long is living proof that it is possible to radically change your life in just 60 days! Her enthusiasm is contagious. I can't wait to try some of the recipes and to get my weight under control.
I am a firm believer in that, God gave us the right nutrients to sustain us and heal our bodies, whether it be with natural fruits and vegetables or by using all-natural food supplements. It is up to us as individuals to put the best nutrition into our bodies.
Just a note: I do agree that buying organic fruits and vegetable's can get expensive. I wash all my fruits and vegetables with Shaklee's Basic H2. It is all natural and super concentrated - just one or two drops in a sink full of water will remove all the pesticides from your food.

.....here's to getting healthy!
