We are starting our first book club next week! I am so excited to start this with you all and am looking forward to continuing our education about what exactly has made us all so fat and what we should do about it.
Starting next week, we will be reading Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It by Gary Taubes. That link is an affiliate link that will take you to Amazon to buy the book and will earn me a few pennies. I would appreciate it if you used it to purchase the book if you don’t already have a copy.
We will be conducting the book club on the same Facebook group that held the 28 Day Weightloss Challenge. How it will work is twice a week I will start a FB thread on that page with a chapter synopsis and perhaps a few questions and then we can discuss what we read from there. New threads will go live every Monday and Thursday at 9AM CT until we are done with a more complete schedule included below. You don’t have to be there as the threads go live, just come on at your leisure and give us your thoughts.
It is my fervent hope that the more educated we become about the biology behind obesity the better choices we will make about what we eat and how we live.
