Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite

A Whole New You by Laura Koenig Rivkin begins with a suggestion to carve out time each day to take care of oneself in small increments. One should take responsibility for all that is going on inside, exhorts Laura, and suggests specific approaches to lifestyle, including diet, to keep oneself physically and emotionally healthy at all times. Taking care of one's well being begins with one's own efforts, the book mentions, while exploring various dietary combinations of healthy recipes. After providing a good list of recipes to tempt one's taste buds, a bunch of rather revolutionary ideas of controlling weight without dieting as well as a discussion on physical exercise make this book a treatise on good health. A chapter on stress with a quick peep into meditation completes this book.

A Whole New You by Laura Koenig Rivkin, as the title suggests, provides all the necessary advice and help to adopt a new and healthier lifestyle. The introductory autobiographical discourse, with a short talk on topics like the emotional block, primes one well in the direction of good health. Whether in the nature of physical exercises or in the choice of menus for a diet, this book has all the necessary details to arrive at a considered decision. Sample menus and recommended shopping lists for such menus make life very easy for those in search of wellness. This is a useful book; well thought out and conveniently presented information makes this also a good reference. I felt the need of an index, more so since this book might have to be referred to many a time.
