Misty copeland diet and exercise
Ballerina Body: Dancing and Eating Your Way to a Leaner, Stronger, and More Graceful You by Misty CopelandI won this book in a giveaway but I dont remember entering the giveaway, probably because I look at the giveaways in the morning when Im half asleep. Anyway I wasnt really look for a nutritional guide or diet book but I read it regardless. The book is split into I would say three main parts, one about mindset, the other exercise, and the third diet. I really think the mindset one was spot on because usually when trying to lose weight you really have to change your habits and to be healthier one should learn to accept oneself. The exercise part was pretty good also, mostly focused on warm up and ballet stances, the best part is that the exercises are all things you can do without any equipment and theres a lot in there that you can do through out the day when youre busy with other things. Theres also exercises to do laying down which I appreciate and might actually do because Im lazy. The diet part was made up of a handful of recipes and meal plans as well as lists of foods. The book talks a lot about eating healthy fats which is good but doesnt mention as much about any other nutrients. Its not a bad thing but I wouldnt look to this book to learn more about nutrition thats all. Its more so if you want an idea of Copelands own diet. I just want to end off saying that Im in with Misty Copeland and how hard she works and how positive she is. I enjoyed the parts of the book most where she talks about her own experience, shes so candid with her own struggles and Im a sucker for people being genuine.
