If you are looking for ways to be eco healthy AND eco friendly, pick up Kate Geagan’s Go Green Get Lean; Trim Your Waistline with the Ultimate Low Carbon Footprint Diet.
Here is the thing about Kate.

Her rhetoric is fresh, interesting and applicable to anyone wanting to lose a few pounds while taking their life long turn at going green.
