Search - List of Books by Robyn Landis
Robyn Landis is an author, public speaker and folk singer from the northwestern United States. At age 25 she wrote a book called Bodyfueling which became a surprise best seller. Bodyfueling is a term she coined and has utilized to promote her phillosophy of increased health and happiness through knowing the important details about how your body works and the important interactions between nutrition and exercise. Bodyfueling is an approach to health and fitness that emphasizes a thorough understanding of how the human body uses food and reacts to exercise. It places a heavy emphasis on breaking away from "diet thinking" and encourages people to concentrate instead on eating for performance, eating in accordance with your levels of physical activity and increasing your level of physical activity in many cases. Simply stated, Bodyfueling advocates "eat more, exercise more" as a key to fitness rather than "eat less, exercise more", which Landis indicates is a recipe for disaster.
