“Tara’s laid-back, fun approach to yoga and cooking is a refreshing relief! She makes healthy living both accessible and enjoyable. I am a huge fan of her work and adore her latest book, Make Your Own Rules Diet. Check it out!”
—KRIS CARR, New York Times best-selling author of Crazy Sexy Kitchen
“The key to true wellness, many of us are finding, is so very much about finding your own way. With so many competing messages bombarding us, this can be nigh impossible to do and many of us have simply lost our wellness mojo. Tara’s approach, however, shows how real, lasting wellness is about being gentle and kind, shifting with ease, and creating space (my mantra for my own wellness is all about creating space—in my schedule and also at a cellular level). Make Your Own Rules Diet is a genuine handbook for a real wellness shift.”
—SARAH WILSON, New York Times best-selling author of I Quit Sugar
“This is a fantastic book! Tara Stiles effortlessly teaches you how to use a yoga mat, a meditation cushion, and your kitchen to transform your body into the one you have always desired. The program is stress-free, fun, and easy! Enjoy your personal journey to wellness!”
—DR. RUDY TANZI , New York Times best-selling author of Super Brain, professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, and director, Genetics and Aging Research Unit MassGeneral Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease
“I live and work in a world that’s fast paced and focuses on perfection. I’m surrounded by it every day. Tara has taught me to embrace my imperfections, love all of me, and embrace all that makes me happy. More important, she’s taught me life is a journey, not a race; slow down and go at your own pace. It’s okay.”
—TIA MOWRY, actress and CEO of Need Brands
“Vibrant health is not a destination, but the journey of our lifetime. So how about we drop the dogma, judgments, and worry so we can make this journey as fun, pleasurable, and exciting as possible? Tara teaches you how with her practical tips, loving encouragement, and contagious enthusiasm. This isn’t just a book; it’s a liberating experience.”—JESSICA ORTNER, New York Times best-selling author of The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence

I was lucky to unexpectedly meet Tara Stiles at her book signing after taking her Free Flow Lets Go yoga class sponsored by Goyogaco and W Hotels in Scottsdale, AZ. It was cool to get a hug from her, and then to read in her book how much she values the joy of hugging!
At first, I thought Make Your Own Rules Diet would be primarily about recipes and healthy eating. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it is so much more, offering motivation to cultivate daily at home yoga and meditation practices, and a glimpse into Tara's history with food - the healthy and the unhealthy.
Create Space & Sensitize
The first part of the book spends time convincing us of the importance of getting back to the necessity of feeling. We are so programmed to put what everyone else thinks and what advertising tells us we should want before how we feel. It is too easy to get caught up in doing the things we think we are supposed to do because everyone else is, and to ignore all the signals our bodies send us about what is right and what is not.
Tara Stiles sends a gentle yet powerful wake-up call that there is a better way through her latest book. She calls us to create space in our lives, remembering to breathe and allow our power to know whether something is on the path to our greatest life or not to shine above everything else.Read more ›
Another reviewer mentioned that this book encourages orthorexia, and I don't necessarily disagree. But, to go along with the theme of the book, you don't have to strictly adhere to her recommendations. I personally would recommend adding protein supplements to her recipes, but that's just me.
It's important to keep in mind that Stiles is a yoga instructor with a background in modeling and dance, not a nutritionist. If you're looking for a rough guide to intuitive living and yoga, this is a good place to start. If you're looking for a healthy, balanced diet book, look elsewhere.
