by | Nov 1, 2022 | Mixed/Balanced Diets | 0 comments

There are so many weight loss books that promise to provide all the information you need to shed those excess pounds that entire sections of online and brick and mortar bookstores have been dedicated to them. Weight Loss For Busy Mortals has had a solid presence on many of those shelves as well as in Kindle format. 

A Fast and Easy Read

The book was written by Angel Dekker. Weight Loss for Busy Mortals was first published in September 2012. The book itself isn’t very long at all, at only 65 pages in its published form. It is written to help dieters to be able to get rid of their excess weight no matter how busy their lives may be.

There are a number of different subjects that are covered in Weight Loss for Busy Mortals. Among these subjects include:

  • Tips for grocery shopping
  • Water
  • Yoga
  • Stretching
  • Exercise choices
  • Fat burning foods
  • Eating smarter
  • The importance of sleep
  • The basics of losing weight 

Adopting a Healthy Lifestyle with Weight Loss for Busy Mortals

This book may have a fad kind of sound, but it is not at all meant to be a fad diet. Instead, it is a lifestyle that can be adopted in order to eliminate excess fat and prevent it from returning. The book was written with both men and women in mind and is compatible with the majority of lifestyles and food and exercising preferences.

Weight Loss for Busy Mortals will require the eating and exercising habits to have to change to a certain degree. However the changes are not typically considered to be drastic. They essentially provide the dieter with a path to follow in order to direct themselves to a much healthier lifestyle that easily fits into a busy schedule.

The book is readily available to purchase and can be used with nearly any kind of lifestyle. This means that it is appropriate to a very large range of dieters. At the same time, there are a number of different books which promote the exact same changes in lifestyle that are recommended in this book.

Essentially, it is a restatement of the typical advice that is given about a healthy lifestyle and weight loss, only designed to be worked into the schedule of a very busy person. This has generated as many complaints about the text as there are kudos for the strategy.

The primary benefit of this book is that it places all of the instructions in one place and is specifically geared toward fitting it all into a busy lifestyle. It can help to ensure that the right habits are built so that they will be maintained over the years, instead of starting the next swing in a yo-yo dieting pattern.

Update September 2019 – After extensive efforts to locate Weight Loss for Busy Mortals online, it looks as though this book (and its author Angel Dekker) has been deleted from digital existence. This is incredibly odd, as usually when a book isn’t sold anymore, it is simply listed as unavailable. Moreover, even if a certain site ceases to carry it, usually it’s possible to find information about it having previously existing somewhere on the web. Needless to say, this book is now gone and cannot be purchased in any form online.

How to Find a Good Weight Loss Book Online

Weight Loss for Busy Mortals may no longer be an option, but the web is still filled with many great books about weight loss that you can obtain in print, eBook, and sometimes even audio book formats.

If you are on the hunt for a good book to help you achieve healthy dieting and exercise goals, consider the following to help you narrow down your search:

  • Have a weight loss goal in mind
  • Think about what types of exercises you enjoy
  • Know your weight loss struggles (e.g. appetite, lack of energy, lack of motivation, etc.)
  • Realistically think about what foods you are and are not willing to sacrifice
  • Avoid books that promote cleanses and maintaining extremely low daily calorie limits (e.g. 1,200 calories or less)
  • Research the author(s) of the book to find out who they are and their expertise
  • Read several customer reviews to see what they thought of the book you’re interested in
  • Purchase the book from a reputable source 

Consult with Your Doctor

Remember that no matter what advice you read in a book or from who it comes (a celebrity, professional trainer, dietitian, doctor, etc.), it should never replace the advice provided to you by your actual, real life healthcare provider.

Just as would have been the case if you had decided to purchase Weight Loss for Busy Mortals, remember that if you are going to be making significant changes to your diet based on what you read in a book, consult with your healthcare provider first. It is important to ensure that the changes recommended in the book you choose are ideal for your health and are practical in helping you realistically achieve your intended weight loss goal.
