Format: Paperback
I enjoy the Healthy Tipping Point blog, but this book was a big disappointment. First of all, it's LONG- I'm a big reader but it's a lot of pages and the print is really tiny. That wouldn't be a bad thing if the content were compelling, but it's not.
I like the idea of a healthy tipping point- you make small changes and they make you feel so good that you make more and more- but the book is definitely not structured around that idea. Instead, it's a collection of loosely organized and fairly repetitive diet and exercise advice, most of which you'd know if you've read a few women's health magazines. Moreover, the advice only really applies to those who share the same diet and exercise interests as the author: the underlying message of the food portion is 'you don't have to be a vegetarian, but if you're not just be aware that you're torturing animals and destroying the environment', and the exercise is mostly geared to running and triathlons. Finally, there are lots of grammar errors. The most prevalent is mis-matched pronouns, like "Anyone who makes this change will see their lives improve". Not a huge deal, but it shows me the publisher just wanted to get a book out and make a few bucks capitalizing on the blog, and didn't bother with copy-editing.

The author is not an expert in any of the fields where she offers her opinion however valuable it may be.
Like other books, it offers "researched facts" with only half the real facts. She tries to prove her life choices are the "educated choice", yet she doesn't have the guts to be open about it like "the skinny bitch" authors do.
It is a good attempt at some guidelines for completely lost people, nothing more.

Lost all respect for her work since all the good reviews were written one after the other and by people who coincidentally also gave her previous work 5 stars.

I received this e-book as a gift today...you might as well read the free blog.

The author is not an expert in any of the fields and this is a collection of stories and anecdotes. Save your money and invest in a book from someone who's gone to school in the subjects.

Firstly, I will disclaim this review by writing that I'm a fan of Caitlin and the Healthy Tipping Point blog. I was hesitant to buy this book at first because so many bloggers' books end up being regurgitated blog content. But I decided it was worth a shot.

I think it's also important to note that Caitlin is not an RD, a nutritionist, a personal trainer or any kind of health professional. Her book is largely anecdotal and should be treated as such.

Bearing these things in mind, I still really enjoy this book. Caitlin has a balanced approach to health and wellness (suggested by her book's title) and presents a plan for healthy living that is far more accessible and much less disordered than a lot of the big-name "healthy living bloggers" out there. Caitlin embraces multiple paths to health and doesn't promote any one plan over others. She doesn't even promote any kind of "diet" (outside of healthy eating) as better than any other. I liked that she emphasized the personal aspect of the journey.

I think this book contains good information that most people can apply to their lives. She has a lot of good ideas that are new (or at least more fully explained) in the book and I found it to be very readable.

If you're a fan of her blog, healthy living blogs in general, and are looking for some ideas to incorporate into your lifestyle, I think Caitlin's book is a good place to start. Just do keep in mind she is not a professional and this book shouldn't be treated as gospel.

I am an avid reader of Caitlin's blog, Healthy Tipping Point, so naturally I bought her book as soon as it came out. This book is the perfect motivator for someone looking to lose weight, get in shape, or transition to a healthier life-style. Since I am pretty athletic and try to eat right, not all of this book pertained to me, but certain aspects I found really interesting and helpful. For instance, I'm now putting a spoonful of ground flaxseed in my oatmeal (gotta get those Omega 3's) and Caitlin's zest for swimming has me itching to hop in a pool for a break from running and cycling workouts.

If you're looking to make some lifestyle choices, I'd definitely recommend this book! :)

As a faithful reader of Caitlin's blog for several years, I was excited to read her new book, Healthy Tipping Point. What I love about this book is that it is not a quick-fix diet book that promises that help you lose weight fast. Instead it focusing on outward appearance, Caitlin shares how she reached her "healthy tipping point" and decided that her lifelong health was more important than a number on the scale or a perfectly thin body. Making small changes every day can lead to a healthy lifestyle and this book is a great resource to inspire others who are ready to make some changes. The real life stories add a personal touch and should inspire readers to get started on their own road to healthy living.

I am a devoted reader of healthytippingpoint.com and I wanted to read this book, but I wasn't expecting it to be anything new. It was so much more than I expected! Great advice, nothing crazy, down to earth, and realistic! Recipes are delicious too!
