KappaCino Book Club || The Secret of Weight

When it comes to weight loss or anything like that, it can be confusing. I’m no expert on the subject but I can spot a load of rubbish from a mile off. I have no time for fad diets or the latest craze. So when I got asked to review “The Secret of Weight”, I was a little skeptical.

 The book

When I got this book, I was still heavily pregnant. I had no plan of reading it while I was “with child”. So it was placed on the bookshelf until I could get around to reading it. But I got bored while I was waiting to go into labour, so I read it. The book is divided up into different sections but the same message throughout. The method is repeatedly driven home so that it sinks into our thick skulls and becomes second nature. And no, I will not tell you what the method is. Buy the book. I refuse to give any spoilers. But I will say this, it is the simplest method ever. And you will probably read the book, throw your hands in the air, and scream I already knew that!! Really? Then why aren’t you doing it? Exactly…..

Thoughts on the author

Florence Delorme, I do not envy her. And the backlash that she is probably going to endure is the stuff of nightmares. I don’t even like touching on the subject of weight loss, body image, etc, because people are completely nutty about sort of stuff now. There are things like “fat shaming” and “thin privilege” these days. Just even talking about your body can light the fire under the asses of a thousand internet trolls. Florence wrote an entire book on the subject of weight loss. I take my hat off to you, you are a brave woman.

Thoughts on the book

The book has been laid out very well. From the very beginning, the method is laid out in plain English so you don’t need to read half the book before it makes sense. The language and how the book is written feels like it has been designed not to offend anyone who is battling with weight problems. The method is nothing new but how it is presented is interesting. The method does work, I know that it does, but how it has been presented might make you think differently about food.

Overall

I am not a person who likes to shill the latest diet fads at people. Sure, I have to keep a roof over my head but I tend to stay away from the health and fitness stuff, even though a lot of fitness brands would pay top dollar for a blog post like this. And the reason I stay away from those types of things is because I have no idea about “the science” behind them. This book is not telling me anything new. In fact, when people ask how I stay in shape, I tell them I use this method. Then they look at me like I’m insane. Yes, I have been using this method for years. But, this book made me think of it in a different way. I had a “penny drop” moment as I was reading it. Should you read it? I have no idea. But I will say this, if you are interested in weight loss and want to explore some different ways to help get you on the right track, this book will interest you. It’s not about telling you that yu are wrong, or making you feel ashamed, it’s about a way of thinking and practical advice to get you moving in the right direction and changing your lifestyle, and leaving the faddy diets behind for good.
