Book Review: Primal Moms Look Good Naked

Primal Moms Look Good Naked

Let’s just be honest here. I have never read one Primal/ Paleo book before. Only cookbooks J So when Peggy sent me a complimentary copy I was super excited! The structure of the book, with it’s bold headlines and easy to read, concise paragraphs are any readers dream come true.

Peggy has researched & referenced so many books & websites and placed them into one complete book. I just enjoyed reading the book from cover to cover. The book is not only about pregnancy let’s just get that question out of the way. She speaks about what it truly means to be a beautiful primal woman. This requires nutritional based food,  plenty exercise and reduction of stress. Although, much Emphasis on Food.

The most exciting facts for me since I have already had my children are about collagen, stretch marks, cellulite, hormones, varicose veins, healthy hair, abdominal muscles, and saggy skin. I have almost come out of my two pregnancies “scar” free. With my first I gained 54 pounds and my second 42 pounds. I ate primal with my second and not my first. I’m about 5’5” and usually weigh about 110 pounds. That’s a lot of weight to gain & loose fairly quickly. My children are only 2 years and 3 months apart as well. So for me my skin is saggy in the belly region.

With my new gain of knowledge about collagen, muscle, specific exercises and exact vitamins & nutrients that I’m lacking will help me improve my saggy abs. To improve collagen I should drink more bone broth. This offers glucosamine a tissue-repairing compound. Eat more liver- which has vitamin A. This synthesizes new collagen. Zinc is another building block I’m probably lacking. This helps with cellular repair. Oysters have the highest concentration, but other healthy sources include chicken, nuts, crab and red meat.

Like all women. I pick every inch of myself apart. Although, lately I’ve noticed that my skin, hair, nails have never looked better. I never started eating primal for weight loss or to look younger but I can’t deny that I don’t like these unforeseen benefits. What you look on the outside really does prove what’s going on inside your body. Reading Peggy’s book has just reassured me that I’ve made the right choice for myself and my children. Which is to really thrive and to optimize our health and live life to the fullest.
