Lose twenty pounds and reverse the aging process in just sixty days with this clinically proven, holistic lifestyle plan from an anti-aging expert whose clients include some of New York City’s most successful women. Most diets don’t work because they restrict food intake and put inconsistent physical stress on the body, starving cells, throwing hormones out of whack, and slowing down metabolism.

In The Well Path, Dr. Jamé Heskett offers us a radical new approach: In order to lose weight, we first have to heal the damage we’ve done to our bodies from years of dieting. Before we can lose weight for good, we need to achieve homeostasis—total balance in the body, with all its systems working in concert. When you're there, you’re full of energy, look and feel younger, and lose weight effortlessly

The Well Path is her sixty-day plan to get you there. Dr. Heskett provides a detailed week-by-week and day-by-day calendar of small changes and challenges to get you on your own Well Path. You begin with Well Prep, a month-long period to get you acclimated to simple lifestyle changes. The second month is devoted to Well Practice, a road map to homeostasis that focuses on six areas of

CHANGE: Circulation—improving the vascular system gets rid of stored fat and toxins

HUNGER—learning to identify real and false hunger to avoid overeating

ACTIVITY—non-exercise activity that can burn hundreds of extra calories

NUTRITION—a diverse array of nutrients (especially fiber) to improve gut absorption and balance hormones

GENERAL HEALTH—the importance of sleep, sex, stress, and social interaction

EXERCISE—Dr. Heskell’s code for maximum fat-for-energy exercise conversion

The Well Path will take you from sickness to health, fat to fit, and old to young—in just sixty days.

My Review:

I haven't yet had the chance to fully implement all of the wonderful suggestions included in this book, but I am already loving the approach! The Well Path is all about losing weight the healthy way, and not by restricting calories. Anyone who has ever been on a diet knows that they don't work.You end up famished and searching out calories all day (at least I do!). The Well Path offers a concrete plan for those like myself who are hoping to lose weight and keep it off long term.

The one thing that I noticed is that some of the ingredients in the suggested soup recipes may be hard to source if you live in a smaller town such as I do. I would have loved some alternate suggestions!

I look forward to fully implementing The Well Path in my life and I thank TLC Book Tours for inviting me along on this tour!


  1. I'm glad you found some helpful suggestions and recipes in this book! Thanks for being a part of the tour.

  2. Thank you for this post. The meal plans in the military diet are not a random set of food options that are packed together in small portions in order to lose weight. These are composed of a carefully planned, tailored-fit set of ingredients that create a holistic and extremely effective combination. See more
