Julie Daniluk, R.H.N.

Health & Healing, Alternative Health, Diet/Fitness


With her debut bestselling health book and cookbook, Meals That Heal Inflammation, nutritionist Julie Daniluk created the definitive guide to understanding inflammation and its link to chronic disease.

With Slimming Meals That Heal, Julie highlights the all-important relationship between inflammation, allergies, and weight gain-and offers up over 120 new recipes. All too often, diets fail because they are a self-imposed temporary food prison that people can't wait to escape. Slimming Meals That Heal will shatter the need to count calories and will conquer cravings by offering the Live-It, a delicious new way of eating that reduces the inflammation that looms in the background of anyone who struggles with their weight. Julie's clients who have followed the SMTH anti-inflammatory plan have lost 25, 45, and even 100 pounds.

Slimming Meals That Heal deepens the reader's understanding of how food can hurt or heal. The book includes information on cleansing the organs, the specific power of superfoods, and techniques that directly reduce cravings. Julie has devised a 5-step plan on how to boost metabolism and balance hormones, leading to holistic weight balance. And just as with Julie's first book, Slimming Meals That Heal is bursting with easy, tasty, phenomenally healthy, slimming recipes for every meal of the day, from Superfood Quinoa Porridge to Ginger Honey Salmon Soup, and from World's Healthiest Gluten-Free Lasagna to the Best No-Bake Apple Crumble Ever. Once you try the Live-It, you'll leave dieting behind forever as you embrace Julie's exuberant, healthful approach to eating!

What a great book! I had no idea how detailed and interesting this book would read. The first part of the book the author talks about health and how diets don't really work. The main thing I got from this section was nutrition and food allergies/issues. This book explained in an easy to understand context and I got a lot more from reading this book than my nutrition college class! The second part of the book is a ton of delicious recipes split up between meals/drinks and then a list to the side that shows if it's gluten free, dairy free, etc. So helpful to those of us who struggle with food allergies and issues!! Everything about this book is helpful an honest. The author talks about her personal eating and life and makes the meals and topics realistic and achievable. I do agree with the idea that diets don't work, they work for a week or two but eventually we go back to eating the food we weren't allowed to. In order to maintain weight it's a healthy lifestyle change, no just a crash diet.

If you want some healthy recipes and beneficial information on nutrition you need to read this book.
This is honestly the best nutrition book I have read.

Slimming Meals That Healcontains three sections:

Research(Explains the science of losing weight, and how hormones, emotions, and inflammation are linked to weight gain.)

A Plan(Reveals problems with certain foods and why you should stop eating them, as well as recommending substitutions.)

Recipes(The bulk of the book – menus for healthy eating, with gorgeous, full-page illustrations.)

Julie Daniluk (a registered holistic nutritionist) uses a unique approach in this book. She not only provides delicious recipes, but also informs her readers what certain ingredients do to the human body, what to avoid, and how non-food items in life (hormones, allergies, inflammation and moods) can affect weight and well-being.

I found this book inspiring and informational. Much more than I expected. Highly recommended—particularly if you’re dealing with health issues.

Slimming Meals That Heal is a wonderfully written book that focuses on dieting through lifestyle changes. It is separated into three sections, “The Science of Weight Loss,” “The SMTH Program,” and “The Recipes,” all of which together explain a well-rounded approach to bettering one’s body.

In the first chapter, The Science of Weight Loss, Julie Daniluk focuses on the anatomy of the human body and how different foods affect the body. She discusses what foods are best for your body, the hormones they impact, and what foods you should stay away from. What I found most interesting about this chapter was when she mentioned that sour foods promote weight loss. Not only do sour foods such as vinegar cause someone to feel full, but it also prevents metabolism of some carbohydrates.

The second chapter, The SMTH program, details what the SMTH program is. The reader is instructed to remove certain foods from their diet and is given guidelines as to when they could reintroduce what. This plan will allow someone to determine what foods cause inflammation in their body and what foods they will need to remove from their body on a regular basis.

The third chapter, The Recipes, you will find 120 gluten-free recipes. Each recipe has symbols that designate various things including but not limited to egg free recipes, soy free recipes and dairy free recipes. A few recipes from the book that I’ve added to my must cook list are the best no bake apple crumble, cashew crusted chicken, skinny onion rings mad creamy asparagus soup. These are dishes that I love to eat, so I’m excited to try healthier alternatives to the recipes I currently use.

This book is definitely a book I would recommend to someone who needs to reduce inflammation in their body. My only complaint is that it’s very wordy. For something that I thought was a cookbook when I ordered it, I’m a little disappointed with and discouraged by the length of the first two chapters. The detail is wonderful but definitely overwhelming.

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.
