Who’s the New Kid?
When her 9-year old daughter, Breanna, tipped the scales at 186 pounds, Heidi Bond knew it was time to take some serious action. Rather than resort to drastic measure like medications and surgeries, Heidi enacted dietary and fitness changes that resulted in Breanna dropping 40% of her body weight in just over year. In Who’s the New Kid?, Heidi tells her story and walks readers through the changes the Bond family made and the results they saw. The last half of the book has many fitness and nutrition tips, as well as a 40-day nutrition plan to help readers develop healthier habits.
I found this book to be quite interesting and I commend Heidi Bond for taking matters into her own hands and taking on the challenge to better her daughter’s life. I found some of the tactics she used a bit extreme, but I’ve never been in her shoes. If I had a morbidly obese child, I may enact some of these same changes. I was excited to see that this book advocates diet and exercise for weight loss rather than pills and/or surgeries. The 40-day nutrition guide at the end of the book is a great resource, too.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for this review. All thoughts are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
