As a huge fan of the 131 Method online program and Chalene Johnson, I was able to get my hands on an early release copy of the new 131 Method Book. I was therefore able to read through this book that won’t actually be hitting bookstores until April.
I could have waited til then to share my review, but I loved it so much, I needed to share it with you ASAP. Plus, if you pre-order the book before the official release date of April 18, you get a mindset series of audios valued at $97, for free.
I definitely don’t want you to miss out on that so here I go with my review.
This book is all about understanding how our bodies function in order to create an eating style that fuels our bodies instead of inflaming it. The whole goal is to heal our gut so that we can really absorb the nutrients in our food and heal our bodies.
With this book and the 131 Method as a whole, Chalene Johnson is on a mission to take back the word diet.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a diet is
A: food and drink regularly provided or consumed. [a diet of fruits and vegetables; a vegetarian diet]
B: habitual nourishment [links between diet and disease]
C: the kind and amount of food prescribed for a person or animal for a special reason [was put on a low-sodium diet]
D: a regimen of eating and drinking sparingly so as to reduce one's weight [going on a diet]
A, B, C & D are all true. And yet somehow, as a society, we seem to solely focus on D. To most of us, the word "diet" means something we do to lose weight. It means restriction and being controlled by our food. This is no way to live life and it has to stop!
The 131 Method is the "anti-diet", if you will. It teaches us that we don't need to "be on a diet" but we need to "have a diet" specifically customized for our DNA, gut health, and individual makeup.
There is so much science packed into this book and yet everything is completely understandable and accessible. Even without a doctorate you will clearly understand how your body digests and utilizes food. In fact, you’ll probably end up with a better understanding than some doctors.
Speaking of science, this program is not just some fad that’s here one minute and gone the next. The information and ideas in this book are completely science backed.
By reading this book you get to learn the science of how your body works, why diets only work temporarily before eventually causing you to gain even more weight, and how to eat to fulfill the needs of YOUR body. Ultimately YOU decide what you do on this program. It is completely personalized to YOU.
And because it's that personalized, it's impossible to "fail." You simply make choices and recognize how your body reacts, and use that information to get more and more in tune with your body everyday.
The changes you can make in your body are amazing. You might lose weight. You might lessen the inflammation going on in your body. You might feel less pain. You might gain more focus. You might change your brain. You might change your life. Seriously.
While I totally love the online program, jumping into such a program might be intimidating to some. Plus it can be difficult to decide to pay for a program when you aren’t really sure how it works. All the talk about phasing and fasting might seem confusing or even impossible when you don’t know the science behind it.
This is why having the 131Book is so amazing. You get to learn all the science and understand the process of the program but for a much smaller price tag.
In fact, you can learn everything you need to know to create your own healthy eating style right from the book. Plus there are plenty of recipes that you are sure to enjoy.
This book is LIFE CHANGING!
If after reading the book you are inspired to join the online program, you can do that too. There you’ll have access to registered dietitians, a community of other 131ers, meal plans you can follow, and even more of the science behind how food affects our bodies.
