Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Drink water, not soda. Stand up straight. Exercise 10 minutes a day. These are the kinds of simple lifestyle changes that Laure Redmond advocates in Feel Good Naked: 10 No-Diet Secrets to a Fabulous Body. Drawing from her experience as a fitness therapist and exercise instructor (she had a stint on ESPN's Body Shaping), plus her own struggles with body image and weight, she shows how these steps can help women lose weight without deprivation. Her primary message, however, is that how you feel about your body is more important than your actual weight, and she urges women to be comfortable with a figure that isn't stick-thin.

Laure Redmond asks us to examine our predisposition toward hating our bodies and offers us real-world alternatives: a different way to be in our skin, a different way to look at life, a different way to look at ourselves. It's a great gift she offers, made especially powerful by the fact that it is within reach. Redmond's program is down-to-earth and do-able. And her own story is so inspiring, you want to start following her advice as soon as you finish chapter 1; I implemented a couple of the steps she presents right away, and I felt uplifted immediately.
I particularly liked the voice of the author. The honesty with which Redmond talks about her own trials makes me wish I could call her up on the phone and spill my guts to her. She's warm and understanding and has been through a lot. Because she's so frank about her own life--and she treats it all as grist for the learning mill--she makes me less afraid to look at myself, warts and all, and try to make changes.
This is a great book.

Yesterday while in a favorite bookstore, I happened upon Laure Redmond's amazing and inspiring book, Feel Good Naked. The cover and the title were enough alone to get my attention as well as pique my curiosity. For the next hour, I read nearly seventy pages with so many emotions. I knew that I had to buy this book because I wanted it to be the blueprints for my health for the rest of my life. Once I was home, I could not put this book down! I felt such a connection with Laure and the other women's stories, it was almost as if I was reading my own autobiography because the thoughts and feelings that were expressed were identical to what I've felt for my entire 21 years of living.
I have been struggling with body hatred and a number of eating issues for over a decade of my life. I've spent so much time on every diet imaginable. The most debilitating "diet" of all has been my 11 year struggle with bulimia. I've been in and out of treatment programs trying to get help, but all the while, I thought by getting help, I should also find a panacea for my ugly, fat body. This book helped me realize that what I truly need is a cure from my own self-loathing when it comes to my body. Never before have I read a health book that affirms every woman's right to recognize her own individual worth. Several of Laure's statements had me in tears because they were so powerful and filled with love. Laure offers a rare kind of empathy for all women faced with body hatred because she herself experienced it on very dangerous levels. The statement that jumped off the pages at me was that a woman's worth is not measured by her dress size. It is how she lives and how she loves. I do not reccomend this book for women-I URGE EVERY WOMAN TO READ IT AND APPLY THE 10 STRATEGIES!!!

I just love the candor of Laure's writing. She is so open, genuine and tells it like it is. I could completely relate to her story and the stories of the other women in the book. I think that too much emphasis is placed on having a perfect body, instead of having a fit and healthy body. Laure helps women (and men) get to the root of their weight issues and overcome them. She creatively makes it fun to exercise and eat more healthy. She makes people be accountable for their own actions without blasting them and making them feel awful.
I would DEFINITELY suggest this book to anyone that struggles with unhappiness about their appearance. Laure will help inspire you into taking charge of your own life and making it what you want it to be.

Format: Paperback
Feel Great Naked is an excellent book for women who are unhappy with their bodies and looking to making healthy lifestyle changes. Author Laure Redmond--who appears naked on the book's cover--describes a simple, 10-step program which allows women to slowly introduce healthy changes into their lives. Redmond's easy 10 steps are as follows:

1. Don't Deprive Yourself. Treat Yourself Once Week.

2. Drink Water, Drink Water, Drink Water!

3. Watch 10 Minutes of Exercise a Day Change Your Face and Your Life.

4. Schedule Fitness Appointments in Writing Each Week.

5. Don't Stop Eating. Stop Eating in Front of the TV.

6. Pick an Idol and Let That Person Motivate You.

7. Breathe Consciously for 5 Minutes Every Day.

8. Take 30 Minutes of Private Time Each Day.

9. Write Yourself a Love Letter Once a Month.

10. Stand Up Straight and Tall.

As you can see, none of the above ideas are revolutionary, but Redmond presents them in the form of a uniquely easy-to-follow, comprehensive plan. Furthermore, each step features an inspirational story based on one of Redmond's clients, and she shares motivating insights into her own struggles with weight/body image as well. Finally, as the title suggests, Redmond emphasizes the importance of being comfortable with yourself naked, which she works into her prescribed suggestions.

My one (minor) issue with this book is that I think the title is slightly misleading. I already follow most of the guidelines which Redmond recommends, and I was hoping for more specific information on enhancing self-esteem/body comfort--while this information IS included in the book, it's not the main focus. Overall, however, I think this book is a great resource, and I would definitely recommend it to any woman looking for a straightforward guide to making small but vital changes in her life.
