MY REVIEW:

There’s a lot of information packed into this little 88-page book. Ms. Berglund takes us on a journey towards a healthier, more productive life by showing us how the deadly sins: Anger, Greed, Sloth, Lust, Envy,  and Gluttony hamper our progress by disguising themselves as our inner critic. Each of the sins write their own journal entry on how they are going to break down their ‘host’ at various chapters. How true the statements they make reflect how so many creative women feel.

Interviews are conducted with women who have overcome eating disorders. Issues about overeating, extreme dieting, health, fitness, and self-esteem are highlighted. Tips and advice are given to help overcome the negative impact that the inner critic has on women’s lives.

Ideas for visual aids, writing, and journaling prompts are given to help get started. There are also tips for how to start an exercise program. Sadly, it even mentions how much exercise I’d have to do to burn off my latte. **Sighs** Ms. Berglund is motivated and sincere in her efforts to bring positive change to the health and well-being of the reader.

I did notice that there was some repetition as far as the advice given, but not enough that it pulled me out of the reading. Overall, it was a quick and easy read and left me with some valuable advice that I’ll be sure to use.

NOTE: I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

RATING: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥/♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
