Review

It is with great pleasure-indeed, honor-that I write this foreword. I have been a friend and a fan of Beth Horn ever since I first met her. It is rare to encounter someone who truly strives to be the best they can be on every front, and who also has the desire to help others do the same. Beth Horn is that special person! It is from her many years of perseverance towards excellence that Beth has acquired the experience and knowledge gather in this book. Beth is a fitness star dedicate to real fitness on every level. I once saw someone wearing a T-shirt that read, Yoga is more than make an asana out of yourself. In the same way that yoga is more than the asanas (postures), Beth exemplifies that fitness is more than having a great physique. Beth teaches us that fitness is a practice that involves your whole being--discipline, courage,inner strength and mental clarity. She inspires us to feel the best that we can and to be all that we are. Looking good is the result of feeling good and feeling good is the result of practicing the tools that she shares with us in this fine book. Beth is the most authentically positive person that I know. She shines (as you can see from her photos). her light is more than just her physical beauty; it is a well-developed attitude of inner strength, confidence and self-esteem. Beth reminds us that ultimate fitness is available to everyone. In this book she shares her path to the total fitness that will help you realize your dreams. Thank you, Beth! --Rev. Steven Hartman

Even though Beth Horn is an accomplished fitness champion, as someone who in general wants to learn more about strength training and healthy eating, I found her to be very relatable in this book. I love that Horn's goal is to be a positive role model for women of all ages, naturally.

The first part of The Natural Way deals mostly with diet. Horn states that whatever your goal is, eating is 75% of the total package that will make or break your success. Yikes!

For me - and I think a lot of people are in the same boat - when I have a big goal in mind, sometimes knowing how far I have to go to accomplish it can be seem too daunting. So one of the things I liked about Horn's approach is that it's not all-or-nothing. She encourages the reader to start with one goal at a time - and it can be a small one, like drinking more water or cutting soda intake in half.

Another thing I took away from the book is that eating is all about balance. I tend to skip breakfast a lot, or just eat an energy bar or a bowl of cereal, but reading this reminded me that first of all, I shouldn't be skipping breakfast, and second of all, I need make sure I'm adding enough protein into my meals. I tend to eat a lot of carbs just because they're easier to grab on the go. A little planning ahead will go a long way.

Horn says that cheat meals are okay (yay!), as long as you don't get carried away with quantity, and the book gives various helpful examples of different eating plans to follow depending on your goals.

Another helpful thing is that Horn recommends various foods to eat, indicating which are the best choices, which are good choices, which are fair choices - and foods to avoid completely (along with acceptable substitutes for things you may be craving).

It is hard to find good books on health and fitness that are natural. This book is great. It really helped with getting back to nature and using natural products that are safe for me and my family

I wasn't too impressed with it. It was mostly just a chronology of her achievements rather than a how to book.

I wanted a book that was going to guide me into the realm of fitness with a whole body, mind, spirit approach. I'm new to the fitness world (although not new to the holistic health and healing world) and was looking for something of a guide that was going to ease me in gradually.

This was definitely more of a "jump in and submerge yourself" approach, with a voice that seems more like its coming from a coach rather than a mentor. In other words, this book isn't for beginners.

The beginning of the book the author takes several pages to describe to you her every bit of fitness experience and triumph she has had from childhood to adult. To me this seemed lengthy. This goes from sports, to hardcore gymnastics, to winning weight fitness championships and modeling...I'm sure that the goal and intent of the author was to showcase to the readers her years of experience and professionalism about the topic of fitness and that she knows what she's talking about. For someone like me however, it came off as too advanced for me. I just come out from dealing with years of debilitating physical pain, where general physical tasks are a chore. I have since healed from all that and would like to transition into challenging my body on a fitness level but from a holistic, natural, gradual point of view. I really couldn't relate to where this author was coming from, and as much as I tried to jive with her attitude on health, I felt like the book was too fast or too advanced for where I'm at.

The author, which I didn't realize upon buying the book, is actually one of the women who had been on the american gladiators series on television. Had I realized THAT, I probably would have been more prepared for the overall tone that the book is set in.
