What a delightful read 101+ Secrets from Nutrition School by Lynne M. Dorner is! I came to this book with no knowledge of its contents, but I was curious what more I could possibly learn about nutrition than I already know at 69 years of age. Well, to my surprise, I did learn a few new things. And to my further surprise, I realized that, despite the title, 101+ Secrets from Nutrition School was about a lot more than just what I put in my mouth! As a certified holistic health coach, Lynne Dorner is interested in feeding the whole person ie. not just physically, but mentally and spiritually. She realizes, and puts across to her readers in a joyous, almost light-hearted way, that good health is possible when the mind, heart and body are working together well, and imbalance in one can throw the entire being off balance.

Using simple illustrations and lots of humor in neat, short chapters, Lynne drives home what we need to know about eating healthily, reminding us that fat is good for us too, despite the rap it's taken over the past 30 years; that we can fill our plates to the brim...as long as it's with the right foods...that we need exercise and oxygen; that we should buy our fruits and veggies from local farmers where possible; that we need to be wary of what's on and in the foods we buy in the supermarkets; and that when we're reading labels, what to look for. Nothing new there? You'll be surprised what Lynne Dorner shares that you perhaps didn't know e.g. our brains resemble walnuts, a cut carrot our eyes, tomatoes our hearts, kidney beans our kidneys and so on. Mother Nature knew what she was doing when she designed those organs to remind us of what's good for us.

And when Lynne Dorner is done turning a few food nutrition myths upside down, she moves in on that other nutrition, the one that feeds the soul and mind: meditation, breathing, relaxation, doing what you love and loving what you do. Towards the end of 101+ Secrets from Nutrition School, Lynne Dorner advises us to look in the mirror and see the most beautiful person in the world: ourselves. No, her advice here isn't new, but if you keep 101+ Secrets from Nutrition School in a handy spot, you can remind yourself daily, and quickly, of those things we need to remember as we begin each day. You'll love it.

101+ Secrets from Nutrition School That You Need to Know is a health and wellness book written by Lynne Dorner. Dorner is a certified holistic health coach whose completion of her coursework at Integrative Nutrition led to profound changes in her and her son's health. In this book, she presents a number of easily accessible ways for readers to get healthy and stay motivated. Some are common sense, like cutting down on sugars, while others present new strategies that can dispel the feeling that getting healthy means self-deprivation, such as the 80/20 plan. Dorner's book is also filled with references to allow readers to follow up on ideas that are intriguing.

Lynne Dorner's health and wellness book, 101+ Secrets from Nutrition School That You Need to Know, is one of those books you'll want to keep around the house for a bit of motivation whenever your spirits are flagging. It's chock-full of inspirational ideas for getting healthy, and most of them are pretty simple to put into practice. Her very first secret: "What works for me may not work for you" is something everyone who's ever watched a skinny person demolishing the buffet may find some minor comfort in, but the wealth of details following that first secret show how easy it can be to turn around anyone's diet, fitness level and life -- without life-shattering alterations or misery. I loved reading about Dorner's long-lived grandfather and his advice to mellow out with a drink at four. I also enjoyed her perceptive take on GMO foods, factory-farm meats, and fruits and vegetables that must always be organic (the dirty dozen). This book can get you started and will provide lots of encouragement along the way. 101+ Secrets from Nutrition School That You Need to Know is highly recommended.

101+ Secrets from Nutrition School That You Need to Know by Lynne M. Dorner is a neat and useful book that describes short and simple remedies to live a more fruitful, healthier lifestyle. 101+ Secrets from Nutrition School contains 101 so-called secrets or tips on diet, nutrition, health, fitness, meditation, and all other aspects of life that can help people live a better and improved life. As a health coach and nutrition specialist, Lynne M. Dorner has incorporated a holistic approach in her work that serves to introduce us to the ideas of Bio-Individuality and Primary Food. Essentially, the book focuses on the idea that there is a right balance of food, fitness, and lifestyle for each individual and that is what each of us should strive for.

101+ Secrets from Nutrition School That You Need to Know by Lynne M. Dorner is a very handy book to have along as a quick reference guide. All of the 101 secrets are one-page tips and techniques on various topics, written in a fun, engaging, and encouraging manner. I especially liked the simple food and nutrition tips, and enjoyed learning about various vitamins and nutrients that our body needs and what food groups naturally provide it. I also liked the author’s perspective that nutrients and vitamins ingested through natural food products work best and that supplements should be used as a last resort. All in all, this is a great healthy lifestyle book to have around or keep on the bookshelf to go back and re-read time and again.

In her book, 101+ Secrets From Nutrition School That You Need To Know, Lynne Dorner shares her knowledge garnered from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, a year-long online course on clean eating and healthy thought patterns. Each “secret” has its own page, making it easy to jump around here and there in the book or read straight through. Dorner shares insights on a variety of topics from exercise to organic eating choices, weight management to positive thinking patterns, dealing with headaches to clean recipes, etc. Filled with fun illustrations and easy-to-read text, this book is sure to inspire without getting bogged down in wordy intellectualism.

Wow! I loved 101+ Secrets From Nutrition School That You Need To Know from the start! The illustrations are such fun and keep the book feeling light and for the common man (as opposed to a heavy textbook written for health geeks). Lynne Dorner’s style is delightful and very engaging. I laughed my way through this book while picking up some great insights and ideas on healthy eating, thinking and living. It is the sort of book you don’t just read once, but over and over again. And not just read, but put into practice. Think of it, for a couple of bucks you can get a condensed version of what Lynne learned in a year of school. As a quick read, you can pick up lots of good concepts. As a meditate-on-and-do book, it has the potential to be a life changer (or so it seems to this girl!). Pick up little things like “Your waist should be half the length of your height” or “Drink half your body weight (in ounces) a day” or “Aim to eat 80/20 – 80% healthy foods, 20% whatever foods” or … you get the picture. Highly recommended!

101+ Secrets from Nutrition School That You Need to Know by Lynne Dorner is an enlightening as well as an inspirational book about an overall wellness that gives one the freedom to thrive, grow and be joyful. The author speaks extensively about how creating wellness is not just about nutrition and nourishment, but also includes all parts of one’s own self and finding a balance and harmony that promote happy living. A loving approach and a good lifestyle can deliver long-lasting results to everyone in their respective lives. Everyone’s lives are always evolving and it is up to each individual to decide whether they want to get stuck in the rut or move with the flow and pace of life. As readers flip through the pages, they will find secret ingredients, secret recipes, and secrets of success that will guide them to incorporate positive thinking in their lives.

The book covers all weight related issues and details about healthy eating expansively. The black and white sketches are an added appeal. The book makes eating healthily look easy and simple, and explains how small changes can make an effective difference in one’s daily life. The author motivates and encourages readers to adopt a healthy approach to one’s daily diet. What I like about this book is that it is easy to follow and the author also discusses food allergies, which is a good topic to cover while speaking about food, nutrition and diet. This is a book worth having in one’s personal collection as it is just not about food, but also about achieving a level of wellness through healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. An uplifting and enlightening guide that promotes an overall well-being in one's daily life.
