I didn't find anything new, but Marilu Henner and her brother/co-author, Lorin Henner did present things in a unique style. And she is full of an energy and excitement that is evident in her anecdotes about her life and work, which she provides in abundance to make her points.
That said, the program itself, not really a program, but rather, many separate ideas brought together for the purpose of her book, has some definite value for people starting out on the journey of improving their health and well-being. Marilu gives some truly inspirational points. My favorite includes her tip on how she overcame self-sabotage. After many years of struggle with this myself, she speaks truth when she says "You have to fall in love with something bigger than your cravings." (p. 47) This is the recap of her expansion on the point which is found on page 45.
I know that she has experience fighting in front of Congress for better guidelines regarding food and water, but I feel some of the things she wrote should have been backed up by reference points of studies where she learned some of her statistics. For example, she writes at the top of page 60 about alcohol reduction for women because of it increasing their risk of breast cancer. Where do these facts come from?
There were a lot of chapters I loved. I loved the chapter on stress.Read more ›
One of her main tenets is similar to advice my uncle Bill used to give me, when he said that if you smile often, you'll feel yourself growing unconsciously happier because the muscles make you happy. Uncle Bill, who exerted a strange influence over me, was a Marilu Henner type of person, though a bit larger and younger. Henner advises those of us who are not healthy to think about auditioning for the role of a healthy person. How would you walk if you were healthy? What would your hair look like? How would you prepare for this role? And if you can do it for even a day, you can "act" your way into fitness. But, you will say, I'm not an actor. Nonsense, scoffs Henner, we all of us act every day.
Think of your health as a business, she says. She has written all of her books while acting in other projects, for the energy that fuels the one fuels the other too, through an odd cross pollination of good ideas. My Uncle Bill was like that too, he thought nothing of installing knotty pine walls into a basement while dictating his response to Plato's Symposium into one of those old fashioned reel to reel recorders. And always dressed impeccably, like Marilu Henner--none of those vinyl workout outfits for her, because they promote dehydration.

Another nice realistic advice book from Henner. Worth the read, also good for dipping into and out of now and again. Wear Your Life Well: Use What You Have to Get What You WantPublished on September 20, 2012 by Pauline
This product is easy to read and understand along with being very informative. I feel smarter after reading it because of all the topics it covers for everyone.Published on September 19, 2012 by vsf
Frankly, the book is a shallow and eclectic collection of different ideas. The ideas are neither fresh nor original... nor presented originally. Read morePublished on January 5, 2010 by G.E.T.
