Colleen Campo’s Listen to Me…Looking Fit and Eating Healthy is Your Choice is a very short 18-page motivational book that focuses on her fitness and health experiences. During her early life, Campo was able to eat whatever she wanted and still remain a steady one-hundred pounds. However, after marriage and having children, she began to experience weight gain. Tired of feeling fatigue, Campo turned to exercise. She began with cardiovascular training and soon moved up to weight-training with the aid of a personal trainer. She also adopted a healthy diet. Campo was able to do all of this while raising her three children.
Campo’s book does include a few good pieces of advice. She warns her readers to not deprive themselves of all snacks or unhealthy foods. When a craving strikes, Campo allows herself to eat pizza or a hamburger with fries. She also encourages readers to begin their workout slowly and build up to more strenuous exercise. She even includes her own exercise schedules and eating plans. In spite of its perks, I do not feel that Campo’s book was truly motivational. It contains much of the same basic eating and exercise tips that most people have already encountered. Listen to Me may provide an extra nudge to people wanting to improve their health, but it isn’t compelling or life-changing.
