January is the official month of resolutions. So, of course, this week’s book club pick will inspire you to follow through on that resolution to get your body back in shape.
Dr. Rovenia M. Brock—known as Dr. Ro™ to fans of BET’s former health show Heart & Soul—reveals practical, satisfying ways for African American women to eat healthy, get fit, and overcome weight problems and the health risks that accompany them.
From the “Big Ten” myths about miracle weight-loss diets to how eating the right foods can help you live longer, Dr. Ro shows how many serious illnesses can be largely prevented—and even reversed without breaking the bank. Using her own inspiring story and those of many other women, Dr. Ro discusses the health, fitness, and even cultural issues that are unique to black women, and outlines a diet and nutrition program to fit every lifestyle.
