Book Review: Lean Body, Fat Wallet

Lean Body Fat Wallet by Ellie Kay and Danna Demetre is a book on how using the same simple approach and tips you can lose weight, dump debt, and save money.

Ellie Kay has many years of personal and professional experience in how to eat right, lose weight, and keep it off.  Danna Demetre also has many years of personal and professional experience in getting out of debt and saving for the future.  Together they realized the same concepts of what goes in must equal what comes out, fighting temptations, etc. can be applied to both areas in life.

While the book is easy to read and the authors do a great job and presenting a simple method, I found the concepts and applications a little too simple.  Yes, we all know calories in should be less than or equal to calories out and that you should spend more than you earn but the book went little further than that and many keep yourself accountable and positive. 

This book would be good for beginners who are starting out fresh in either area.  There are some helpful hints but it’s more about creating the right attitude and general concepts.  I do wish they would have brought their faith into it a lot more.  I think these are two areas that the Bible has a lot of references in how we should live and not live and they are rarely mentioned.  I am surprised the book genre was labeled as Religion/Christian Life. 

Note: I did receive a copy of this book to read and review for free from Thomas Nelson Publishing.  The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
