Zanna Van Dijk STRONG 80 Exercises and 40 Recipes Fit Healthy Balanced Body

For a balanced approach to Health and Exercise, to become STRONG and lose weight and belly fat – another interesting book by Zanna Van Dijk called STRONG: Over 80 Exercises and 40 Recipes For Achieving A Fit, Healthy and Balanced Body was published just towards the end of the last year (2016).

My new theme for @Cook_BookReview FoodBlog is to research the most current books and ideas that offer the best potential for developing our health, body and mind.

So a really good candidate is STRONG: Over 80 Exercises and 40 Recipes For Achieving A Fit, Healthy and Balanced Body – click the link to read more and see offers to buy on Amazon from £5.99.

It seems current trends lead to the conclusion that we need exercise, movement and healthy foods to maximise our potential.

Zanna Van Dijk has come up with the concept of making us strong, by exercise and eating with balance as the core concept.

Book Content:

There are three sections in Zanna’s book:

MOVE, NOURISH and THRIVE

MOVE:

Considers how best to move, through the most efficient forms of exercise.

Resistance, HIT and preparation, recovery.

A comprehensive list of 80 exercise, with sets and reps to target each of the key body areas, with beginner and advanced sections.

NOURISH:

A selection of 40 recipes for the main meals, with sensible, healthy balanced ingredients.

What food is, the need for balance in meals and a number of tips and tricks to enable healthier choices.

THRIVE:

Reflection and self-evaluation. 

A very good guide to health, exercise and food to improve your body.

Though as with all books of this type, ask your Doctor for advice before starting any new regime – but with numerous beginners sections – the book is a gentle start to exercise that can transform our physical and mental health.
