A fellow coach and friend just wrote a science-based book for people who prefer a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle. So if that's how you eat, or you want to eat that way, this is a must-read book. Did I mention that Melody Schoenfeld *bends steel and rips phone-books* in half?

I haven't read this yet, but I know Melody so I'm confident this book is a phenomenal resource. Unlike some vegans who use fear-mongering to scare people into eating a vegan diet with incorrect information, Melody knows many people choose that lifestyle for ethical reasons, and she gives you a great guide to successfully eat that way. (I.e.: a vegetarian/vegan diet is not superior for health like some misinformation would have you believe -- but many people love animals and *that* is why they're vegan/vegetarian.)

7) Too many women mistakenly believe a leaner body, or a lighter body, will make them happy.

This is not your typical "hack."

I'm not a big fan of traditional before and after photos. I don't think they do a "transformation" justice because, to me, strength training and eating well serves a purpose beyond looking good. I prefer a "before" and "after" that goes deeper.

My personal "before" in regards to what I did before embracing the Lift Like a Girl method I now share and use with clients: obsessed over everything I ate and drank, was constantly chasing fat loss and "fixing flaws," and used exercise as punishment when I overindulged. I was never happy with how my body looked and thought happiness would come from achieving a perfectly sculpted body part, or a lighter bodyweight.

My personal "after" once I started living the "Lift Like a Girl" way: strength training became an enjoyable activity -- something I did to feel great about myself. I chose strength and function over building perfect body part. Eating well was about improving my health but also being able to feel satisfied and enjoy what I ate (and enjoying "not super healthy stuff" guilt-free). I now work with my body instead of fighting against it. Eating well and working out enhances my life, and no longer dominates it.

If you're willing, I'd love to hear some of your "before" and "afters."
