How’s your New Years Resolution coming along?

Many new years resolutions have to do with getting in shape – exercising more and eating properly. But studies show that 64% abandon their new year’s resolution within a month.

Ellie Marrandette’s book will help you get back on track and re-energize you to maintain good eating habits.

Combining her career as a nutritional counsellor and her New Creation Ministries series, this book addresses the “intricate mind, body and spiritual aspects to optimum and sensible health.”

Whether your goal is to lose weight the end point is to be healthy and Ellie Marrandette offers expert advice and tips on doing so. It’s not about dieting but about introducing into your life healthy eating habits.

Being healthy improves one’s looks, energy level, longevity and self-esteem.

Critiquing every fad diet out there she explains why they don’t work and suggests that the only diet that works is feeding your body with the proteins, minerals and vitamins it needs to function at maximum health and to ward of illnesses such as cancer and diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and joint problems.

Be mindful of harmful habits when reaching for food when you are not even hungry.

She explains the role enzymes play in regulating different parts of our body, including regulating our appetite. Much of the book is on quality nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of our bodies (liver, intestines, skin, brain, bones et) and which foods contain them.

The book includes chapters on the benefits of detoxification and emotional eating and the importance of fiber and foods to incorporate in your daily intake for a good night’s sleep or for battling dark circles under the eyes as well as foods that protect sun damage. The benefits of eating nutritious mini-meals throughout the day to maintain stable blood sugar levels.

Add to this our personalities, our attitudes and the importance of gratitude in maintaining a stable health plan.

Although this book targets Christian groups, her knowledge on health and nutrition is universal. This is not a book to read in one reading. There is too much information and it is more of a reference book.

If you find that you are having difficulty sticking to your new year’s goals of becoming healthier this book might just be the boost you need to motivate you to get over that slump.

 We are the only ones who live in our bodies. Choose wisely.

  1. Thanks for the review, Carol. Ellie’s book sounds like a good one to have on hand. I’ve learned that denying myself certain foods only sets me up for failure. For example, I love ice cream, but we have it maybe once a month or less and then only as part of a special meal. And sometimes I work out just a little bit harder the next day 😉

  2. As a cheese lover, I love the title, Carol! I agree, diets don’t work and diet soda stimulated my appetite, so I gave them up eighteen years ago. Thanks for sharing this book. It sounds like something I’d enjoy reading. Hugs to you and Bau! xo

    Honestly … I forgot to make some. Guess I’m content with my life and myself as is.


  4. Thank you so much Carol for this wonderful, accurate review of my book. I appreciate your detailed and honest assessment of what I teach and encourage. Being content with one’s life is the goal of this entire book. Since we are responsible for our decisions, happiness becomes a choice. This provides a roadmap on how to get there. Blessings back my dear friend, ❤

  5. Thank you for sharing!!.. as the universe is constantly changing I don’t make any resolutions, I just follow the dreams in my heart and adjust the sails as needed.. as for a diet, while I do try to eat a healthy meal, I probably am more inclined to Mr. Thompson’s thinking.. “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming; “Wow! What a ride!” ( Hunter S. Thompson).. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)


    • Oh, I love the Hunter S. Thompson quote. As for not making resolutions, Dutch, I tend to agree with you because we never know what awaits us around the corner. Life usually doesn’t turn out as we planned or wanted it to. I like what you said about following the dreams in your heart and adjust the sails. Thanks, for stopping by and commenting. 🙂
