I'm Hungry! I'm Bored!: Eat and Play Your Way to Better Health, a Leaner Physique, and a Happier Life! is a non fiction health and nutrition book written by Carol McCormick. The author is an American Council on Exercise Certified Personal Trainer and Health Coach. McCormick begins with an introduction to the vitamins and nutrients that are essential for good health, and she includes a full listing of the foods that can supply them. She then discusses the reasons why Americans seem less fit than they were fifty years ago. While much of the problem lies with the decrease in physical activity, nutritional problems are a major culprit, especially the sugars, fats and simple carbohydrates found in snacks, sweets and fast foods. Too much of these empty nutrients can make kids act wired or hyperactive, but it's relatively simple to change how your kids eat and think about food using the strategies the author presents.
Carol McCormick's health and nutrition book, I'm Hungry! I'm Bored!: Eat and Play Your Way to Better Health, a Leaner Physique, and a Happier Life!, is chock-filled with some eye-opening and rather dismaying data on the food choices many of us make. Her detailed lists showing the fats and sugars in many common foods are worth looking into as is her data on healthy alternatives. The second part of this book contains things kids and adults can do to stop obsessing about food, and there are some pretty exhaustive lists of ways to volunteer, work part-time, set up your own small business and get smarter.
