Litfuse Review- Who's The New Kid by Heidi Bond

Good evening everyone!! Hope everyone is having an awesome week!! I know I haven't been around much-sorry about that-I've been working on VBS crafts with the family for over 3 weeks! Seems so crazy to be on our second day of JUNE! You know what that means? SUMMER!! This time I actually have a book to help you stay in shape-just in time! Check it out!



She was a normal little girl-or so she thought.

At nine years old, Breanna Bond weighed a whopping 186 pounds. Just walking up the stairs to her room was a challenge. Her legs chafed to the point of bleeding from rubbing against each other, and her school days were filled with taunts of “Hey, Fatty!” Breanna’s mom, Heidi, was devastated and wondered, How can I get my daughter healthy again?

Who’s the New Kid? shows readers how Heidi helped her daughter lose weight without the aid of fad diets, medication, or surgery and how other parents can do the same with their kids.

In just over a year, Heidi’s plan worked! Breanna dropped 40 percent of her body weight and was transformed from a morbidly obese child who spent her days in front of the TV eating chips and chocolate to a vibrant, healthy, energetic little girl.

Filled with helpful diagnostic tools, easy-to-make recipes, eye-opening nutritional information, fun exercise ideas, and practical tips and advice, Who’s the New Kid? will not only show parents how to help their kids lose weight naturally but also introduce them to simple, yet effective lifestyle changes that will benefit the entire family.

*My Thoughts*

My absolute favorite part of this book was the candid way Heidi approached her book. There was no beating around the bush. No "but I meant to". No sugar coating. Just 100% honesty-not to the point of bringing herself down too hard but certainly not exalting her choices. She was completely open, not worrying about her "image" but about helping others just like Breanna. Just like her.

My second favorite part? She took action when she noticed a problem. Some people might wait a while before doing something. They might wait a while to see if the problem fixed itself. Not Heidi. Heidi did everything she could to help her little girl until she found what worked.

Okay. Enough with my favorite parts. I guess it's time to admit reality and say that I actually don't have a favorite part. Because besides all the stories that held me captive on the porch, she has a lovely addition. Recipes, meal plans, and a 40 day diet/ fitness plan to help us do the same!! I would buy it for twice the price! Perfect for any parent, not just those suffering with overweight issues!

*My overall thoughts*

Who's the new Kid by Heidi Bond is a story about a mom's brush with reality when it came to her daughters weight. With openness and honesty she shares her feelings, thoughts, struggles, emotions, and even includes recipes, fitness tips, and meal help!! A gold mine for kids and parents alike!
