Women's Health The Daily Fix Your Guide to Healthy Habits for Good Nutrition
Date:12/9/2008

NEW YORK, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- One thing women know about healthy eating is that the rules keep changing. Now, there's a reliable nutrition guide created specifically for busy women to help them navigate the dietary temptations they face every day and still enjoy the foods they love.

In THE DAILY FIX (December 9; $17.95; Paperback), certified nutritionist Alexa Fishback distills the fundamentals of healthy eating into 12 distinct, easy-to-adopt daily habits targeting the "trouble zones" that effect many women, and provides strategies for making healthier choices. Fishback also arms readers with daily nutritional goals for optimum health and pointers for realistically and easily reaching those goals in the midst of a hectic weekday schedule.

Fishback maintains that daily eating and exercise habits matter most when it comes to weight management and a healthy lifestyle. For many women, the thought of adding one more task to their daily to-do list is daunting -- so Fishback does the work for them, providing readers with the tested, user-friendly methods that have worked for her clients. For example:

    -- No time to exercise? Schedule weekly workouts in an electronic
       organizer like any other appointment. When the time is blocked out,
       there's no excuse for not showing up!
    -- Stuck in a lunchtime eat-and meet? Learn how to healthfully navigate
       the conference room spread. Discreetly peel away the cheese slice from
       the pre-made turkey sandwich, and save 100 calories.
    -- Socializing with colleagues after work? A margarita may be hip, but it
       also pads the hips. Order red wine instead; it's up to 400 calories
       lighter -- and has health benefits, too.

The Daily Fix is a quick and handy reference guide for on-the-go woman. Women looking for a quick snack idea, a nutritional solution to PMS, or how much calcium they need each day (and whether the milk in a double skinny latte counts!) can flip open this book and find the answers they need. This is real nutrition, for the real world.
