Why Women Need Fat #BHBC

When I was younger, I don’t remember worrying about getting enough exercise because my parents did a good job kepping us active and involved in sports. And as for food, I was always fed and happy, so I never thought anything of it. It wasn’t until I entered college {and was on my own for the first time} when I realized how important those two things actually are for your body and health.

Now, almost 8 years later, enter “Why Women Need Fat” by William D. Lassek, M.D. and Steven J.C. Gaulin, Ph.D. This book was a big eye opener for me because between college and now, I was under the impression that dieting was the only way to lose unwanted weight and become “healthy” again. Boy was I wrong!

At first, I didn't know if this book was for me – I wasn’t dieting and I felt like I was in good shape – but the more I read, the more I learned. From chapters about why and how we got fatter to even more about achieving your natural weight through food & exercise, this book seemed to cover it all. And before I knew it, I was thinking of ways to change my current, so-called healthy lifestyle to one that may actually benefit me in the years to come.
