Book Description

From celebrated dietitian Ashley Koff and fitness trainer to the stars Kathy Kaehler comes Mom Energy, an exciting new way for moms to tap into their own natural and renewable sources of energy to overcome fatigue and achieve their personal health goals. Koff and Kaehler have put together a safe, sensible, flexible, and, most importantly, effective program for moms of any age-whether their kids are in diapers or heading off to college. While being a mom is undeniably rewarding, it's also one of the most physically demanding and stressful activities in modern society. In fact, one of the most common complaints from mothers is that they simply don't have the energy to do everything they want, which means they end up sacrificing one thing (usually their own health) to accomplish another. But these sacrifices aren't necessary if you follow some simple guidelines and avoid secret energy saboteurs. With discussions that cover everything from nutrition to fitness to time management, Koff and Kaehler lay out a three-part program (reorganize, rehab, and recharge) that can be molded to any lifestyle to help moms naturally up their energy levels. And with this enhanced energy, they will get all sorts of other unexpected benefits, including a stronger immune system, easier weight loss, and even better relationships. Mom Energy will teach readers what will help and what will hurt in their quest for optimum energy.

2.0 out of 5 stars I Need Energy To Read This Book August 30, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Have you ever been to a workshop and thought: Why do they fill the beginning with all the boring 'background' information and save the better stuff until the end? Well, that's this book in a nutshell. I wanted to give this book my all, I really did. By the time I got through "Master Your Body's Energy Language" I was tired. Mitochondria conversion and body metabolism, I've heard enough of, thank you. There is an energy quiz designed to find your profile. There are examples of "quads" you may live in. It actually comes down to eating simple food, exercising, exchanging healthy for non-healthy choices and sleeping regularly. The "Jump Start Reboot " comes on page 161 of the book and talks about detoxing the body. When I saw the Gwen Paltrow quote I knew I wasn't in for the long haul. Sorry, but celebrity quotes throughout the book do nothing for me. Yes, the "do the work"...and they also have a ton of back up help to make it through the lower calorie diets and exercise routines. If you read "Fit For Life" back in the day, it's actually a equivalent to that with way more Hollywood thrown in. The exercises are for people with better knees-- "Wall Sit with Legs Crossed" is a typical exercise that this body just can't handle. (maybe never could) Take a long walk instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Chore To Read September 1, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I find it ironic that a book designed to help mom's make better use of their time and energy is front loaded with so much rhetoric. If a mom has the kind of time to waste reading the physiological minutae of the human body, then they don't need this book to begin with. The practical information doesn't kick in until you're ready to quit on the book. And it's nothing you haven't heard before. Look elsewhere.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Much New Here August 25, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I got this book through the Amazon Vine program, and I'm glad I didn't pay for it because I didn't really see anything in it I hadn't read before somewhere else. That may be due to the fact that I'm apparently not the target audience for the book although I am a busy mom who sometimes wishes I had more energy to keep up with my many daily tasks. The premise of the book seemed intriguing to me since I am a 40-something woman with kids, a husband, a job, and other responsibilities, but when I began to read the book, I was left with the feeling that I must be doing everything right, or at least pretty close to it. The book begins with an introduction laying out the common problem moms everywhere complain about: lack of energy. The introduction gives the usual platitudes on that subject ("Never before has balancing the competing demands of workplace, home and health been more grueling.") before promising help through a sort of "energy makeover" that will address diet, exercise, sleep and other facets involved in our bodies' energy level. Then the book gives two "quizzes" for the reader to use to sort of diagnose what their problem areas are. The first is a multiple choice quiz with questions asking about caffeine use, dieting, and sex drive. Some of the questions were hard to answer, such as one that asks how a glass of wine makes you feel. Well, I don't drink alcohol, so there was no answer for me to pick. Another asks if you can walk a mile in 14 minutes or less. The choices are: A.Yes, I'm in great shape, B. Are you kidding me? , and C. I have no idea. What about an option of, "No, but I can do it in 20 minutes." In other words, the options assumed things and may not include a response that everyone can match up with. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing We Haven't Seen Before August 25, 2011
Format:Hardcover
Mom Energy: A Simple Plan to Live Fully Charged by Ashley Koff R.D. doesn't offer much more than what has been delivered in other health and fitness books I've read. Subjects included: getting enough sleep, don't wear yourself thin, dealing with stress, drinking plenty of H2O, eating right (including what foods to eliminate from your diet) and exercising, prioritizing, the importance of antioxidants, the importance of "me" time, etc. There were quizzes at the beginning to figure out what "mom type" you are and what quad (The Mom Energy Matrix) you belong in based on the kind of life you are currently living. I loved the quotes from the different celebrities that are clients of the co-author and fitness trainer Kathy Kaehler. Received courtesy of Net Galley.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative, but dry. May 2, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I wasn't expecting this book to be as "meaty" as it was--which is a good thing. There is actually quite a lot of useful information here. I really appreciated their advice about nutrition; the fact that they mention the dangers of genetically-modified foods, as well as the benefits of probiotics (and other gut-friendly foods and supplements) is commendable. I found the beginning section on "Problem Profiles" useful for navigating the rest of the book. (I am definitely the sleep-deprived Mom Zombie.)

The only thing I didn't like was how boring some parts were. I found myself zoning out, tired of hearing yet another source explain the importance of carbs, proteins, and healthy fats. It isn't that this isn't useful information. It's just information I've already heard--and heard presented in a better way. (See The Beauty Detox Solution: Eat Your Way to Radiant Skin, Renewed Energy and the Body You've Always Wanted and Feed Your Face: Younger, Smoother Skin and a Beautiful Body in 28 Delicious Days.)

So, overall, I wasn't wowed by this book. Some information was useful, but when I need to refresh my memory, I will just reread the two books I mentioned above.
