Book Review: Your Holistically Hot Transformation

Disclosure: I was provided a copy of this book for free in exchange for this review.

Marissa Headshot

My friend and fellow health coach, Marissa Vicario, just released her first book, a wonderful account of her personal journey toward becoming Holistically Hot (aka healthy, fit and balanced), without resorting to deprivation or fad diets.

Holistically Hot Transformation

Holistically Hot Transformation is based on finding true health and happiness and NOT following the trends. There are easy to implement tips, recipes, and mantras to inspire action. Marissa is an expert in women’s health and lifestyle using her own struggle and subsequent wellness journey to guide readers through the book in a relatable way. Marissa offers reassurance that wherever you are on your wellness journey, you’re not alone, and encourages you to start small which makes wellness seem much less intimidating.

What I really love is that Marissa understands that everyone reacts differently to foods. What works for me, might not work for you. There is not one cookie-cutter approach to health. It’s why I called this blog, Your Path To Fit – everyone has to find their own path and what works best for them.

Put Into Action

My favorite feature of the book are the “Put Into Action” callouts scattered throughout. The first one encourages readers to think about their reasons for reading the book and set an intention or manifesto for your own health and well-being.

I think it is so important to understand what health and wellness means to you as an individual. Is it a certain size clothing, a certain energy level, not taking any medications, etc? Know what health is to YOU.

Another action call is taking inventory of the types of food you eat the most.

In This Book You Will Learn . . .

  • How to make healthy living a habit without the rules and regulations of a diet
  • How to listen to your body and understand what it needs
  • How to stock and organize a healthy kitchen
  • How to make simple self-care a regular part of your day
  • How to enjoy eating out without sacrificing your healthy habits

  1. I have a “healthy blogger book club” where we post book reviews of any books that are health related. You should post the link to this post on my blog on August 4th. Would love to have you join us and this is a great review.

  2. I love that this book promotes NO DIET rules and regulations because EVERYONE is different thus everyone functions differently on different foods! There is no one size fits all!

  3. I also really like that Melissa makes a point to acknowledge the same strategy doesn’t work for everyone. Everyone’s body is different. While someone may thrive on a higher carb diet, another person might thrive on a high fat diet. The key is to find out what works for YOU, which takes some experimenting!

  4. Sounds like a great book and one I’d like to check out further, I have a hard time finding what works and what doesn’t (still haven’t found the perfect balance) so theres always room for more info and ways to get there!

  5. I love that you mention this book is so individualized in setting your own goals and that different foods work for different people. That’s so important and something that many books fail to clarify!

  6. I love the idea of those put into action callouts. Often times I’ll read a book that is so great but when I’m done I have no idea how to go about actually making changes. So something like that would be perfect for me.
