    One thought on “Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways To Love Your Body”

    1. For the most part, I liked Pretty Happy, which focuses on how you feel, more so than what you eat, although it'd be a blatant lie to say one does not impact the other. Note: this is not a dieting or weight loss book but it does incorporate tips and suggestions for eating better, and clean eating, like choosing healthier foods and how to restore nutritional balance. The book focuses on Four Pillars:1. Cultivate an Intuitive Relationship with Your Body 2. Eat Well3. Awaken Your Body4. The Miracle [...]

    2. I'm a fan of Kate Hudson but this was a little painful to get through. I gave it a 2 star because I could definitely feel the positive energy radiating from the book and overall I like the message. But, it was repetitive and lacked substance.

    3. I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it for the good info she offers regarding health, fitness and meditation. I like her ideas and the book is fun and interesting. It would have been better if I owned a copy so I could write in it and refer back to her suggestions.

    4. I was really excited to read this book because I’ve been a huge fan of Kate Hudson since Almost Famous came out. I’ve basically spent my entire life idolizing both Penny Lane from the movie and Kate in real life. Anyway, the book did not disappoint!I loved that it was not just a diet/exercise book, nor was it a generic celebrity tell-all. In fact, most of the book didn’t focus on Kate’s life at all! Instead, she explains how she found balance and peace in her own life and with her body t [...]

    5. I'll give you the gist: find an exercise you like and eat whole, foods. There! You've read the book. (Minus a lot of pictures of her lying around in crop tops.) Besides that, the fact that she discusses yoga/an Ayurvedic diet without being vegetarian immediately made me not trust what she had to say. Ayurveda is a plant-based diet and has been for 5,000 years. Don't waste your time.

    6. solid 3.5 for me. got a bit repetitive, but love the concept of listening to what your body is telling you and customizing a plan for yourself. the dream board got disruptive to the flow, but had a lot of great intro concepts.

    7. I love Kate Hudson and the fact that she narrated this book. It's certainly not a fix it or tell all book about how to look like her or be her. It's not even really new information. She shares tools and wisdom of what she's learned over the years that have helped her and encourages listeners to use the information that works for them. To find ways to love themselves. To be good to your body. Love your body. I'm already fairly health conscious, but this gave me new things to think about. Meditati [...]

    8. I really liked this because it wasn't a celebrity tell-all nor full of complaints about body type or full of suggestions on how to become "perfect" in Hollywood's eyes. She mentions Ayurvedic practices, which I'm a huge fan of, with accompanying tests to figure out stress levels and other body insights. It read like a magazine, yet, it was quite repetitive. Also, I wish there would have been more meal plans/recipes/weekly layouts. I know Kate Hudson talks about not shoving her plan down your thr [...]

    9. Such an amazing read. So much of this book resonated with me in terms of things I am currently doing/experiencing or things that I feel would benefit me greatly. As someone who values spirituality, mindfulness, and health, but doesn't always follow the rules, this is a breath of fresh air and exactly what I needed. So much goodness, I can not say enough about this book. Great job Kate, and thank you!!

    10. Кейт тут така Кейт! Розповідає про те, яку філософію життя вона для себе виробила і ненав'язливо ділиться своїми порадами про здоров'я, харчування, спорт, медитації. Тут дуже багато йоги, майндфулнесу, легкості, Аюрведи і багато гарних картинок! Я не пошкодувала часу на прочи [...]

    11. Couldn't help but get serious "Mommy Blogger" vibes from this entire book. Riddled with pseudo-science, the author never lingers on any one topic too long. She often cites websites, apps, and holistic practitioners. You'll read a lot of shallow information on cleanses, avoiding all chemicals, and fad nutritional advice. While the introspective journaling and meditation chapters were pretty okay, they still don't make this book worthwhile for me. Skip it, read something from a certified professio [...]

    12. I'm giving this book 2 stars, and I'm being kind. The thing is: I appreciate Kate Hudson's effort to make a positive impact. The problem is not in her message, it's that her approach is extremely shallow. As someone who has benefited from Ayurveda, I'm happy to see she is promoting it. However, anyone with any interest in it should get their information elsewhere. Kate's body-type questionnaires aren't detailed enough, her idea of an Ayurvedic cleanse is insufficient, and her recommendation of a [...]

    13. I read some of this, and ended up skimming the rest. I had high hopes for this book, but it just wasn't anything I haven't read before. It seemed to be a book I've read before that has exercise tips, food tips, etc while not adding anything more in her own unique voice. Perhaps if she had written about more personal details from her own life, and how it really applies to what she was writing about, it would have felt more personal. Reading it felt like she (or her co-author-which always makes me [...]

    14. I absolutely loved this book. A bookclub I'm a part of chose it, and I'm so glad they did because I hadn't heard about it before. This book really spoke to me, and there's aspects of it which I plan to use daily, like the Drawing Board. This book was the perfect book for me to read at this time in my life, and I'm so happy I found it. This is more of what I was hoping Cameron Diaz's The Body Book would be. That book was a bit too scientific for me — which is fine, I love science — I just wan [...]

    15. There was a bit of pseudoscience bullshit in here, but I generally enjoyed it. It was engaging and interactive, and I learned some new ways to balance exercise and clean eating in my life.

    16. Ha ha, just kidding about the padded rating. Not even providing the snark value I like in my "Starlet Giving Life Advice" books, this was just boring boring boring. Seriously though, listening at the 1.25x speed is life-changing. The Apple podcast app should take a note. I'm a fast talker and a fast listener, and while 1.5x is generally a little fast, regular speed is way too slow. Enter 1.25, baby! (Kate Hudson, your book isn't even the star of its own review.)

    17. Started only because I needed an audio book to listen to driving home and Hoopla put it under "similar to what you've just read" after I read Carrie Fisher's wishful drinking - but this is not a celebrity memoir in the slightest. Kept listening only because I have this personal inability to put a book aside after i've started it, even if I'm really disliking it. This was super basic nutrition/health advice (basically, eat a balanced diet and exercise and practice self-care - this book could have [...]

    18. I listened to this on audio. There isn’t any real ground breaking information, but it does provide some good suggestions in a very accessible way. I do like that she keeps reinforcing that everything and everyone is different and that you have to find your own way. These are just some tools that may help you get there.

    19. Kate Hudson je jedna z mojich oblubenych hereciek. Preto som po tejto knihe siahla, trosku ma sklamala, kedze som cakala ze kniha bude o niecom inom ako v skutocnosti bola. Ale to je moja chyba, mala by som sa naucit citat si pred kupou anotacie :-D Na druhej strane musim vsak uznat, ze kniha potesi oko citatela, je velmi pekne spracovana po grafickej stranke a ludia co hladaju motivacnu literaturu si pri nej pridu na svoje aj z hladiska obsahu

    20. I will admit that I was surprised at my desire to purchase this book after seeing it in stores - I'm not usually one who chooses to further line the pockets of the "rich and famous". However, I am thoroughly pleased that I did indeed purchase it! A wealth of information and attainable advice to the less wealthy members of society is contained within these pages. Kate Hudson did a remarkable job of writing down a lot of abstract ideas and turning into something I can understand without a Ph.D. in [...]

    21. What a great motivational book. I havent read many books like this, so I dont have a lot to compare it to. But to me this was really great.I felt like I could relate to a lot of the things that were mentioned, and I do have a lot of the same opinions that Kate has.It is supposed to be a book that will motivate you to live a healthier lifestyle, but I definitely felt like I could use a lot of the insporation on other aspects of my life, and that was very enjoyable.This book will be an audiobook t [...]

    22. There is so much I could say about this book. Maybe because Kate said so much about so many topics. And her style is clear, authentic, intelligent and welcoming. Also I'm overwhelmed about how much I can do to improve my life One thing is consistently exercising and this is what she says about its benefits: --reduces stress --improves attention and memory --restores mental energy and stamina --increases longevity --strengthens our bones, heart skin --Staying active pumps energy into our body and [...]

    23. At one point she tells you to look up all the food in your house with ingredients you can't pronounce, or that contain chemicals. CHEMICALS. WATER IS A CHEMICAL, KATE HUDSON.She claims to have done tons of research but still made this slip. For shame, ghostwriter helping her with this book. For shame.Overall this had potential but didn't go into a lot of detail about her life, or really anything about her personal habits. She talked in generalizations, not specifics. Would have liked to have see [...]

    24. Kate Hudson seems like a kind and upbeat sweetheart and I was looking forward to reading this. Unfortunately I found this book to be disappointing. First of all, it doesn't seem like it's written in her voice; perhaps that has something to do with her co-writer? Then it falls prey to the usual contradictory advice: accept yourself exactly as you are but also, exercise regularly and avoid dairy, gluten and sugar. SUGAR is evil and you shouldn't eat more than a teaspoon a day. I also wasn't a fan [...]

    25. Although the book is a bit repetitive and not the most well written, it provides a lot of good advice and insights about healthy eating, mindfullness, and what could work for you. I was able to gain some great takeaways and enjoyed her I find Hudson and her book to be open, honest, and pretty happy.

    26. Really nothing new here for me. I loved the idea of this book but didn't find anything new or terribly inspiring inside. Very repetitive.

    27. Really good and basic intro to ayurvedic types. Also great inspiration to start journaling again and starting to meditate. Would recommend.

    28. In her book actress Kate discusses all about how being happy is to do with making our bodies and minds work together for not just harmony but optimal power.Stop being self critical and trusting your body and how it feels, accepting what your body needs is a huge step. Kate tells us how pregnancy changed her body and mindset along with getting the right nutrition and exercise when she wanted or resting when needed anyway as she has such a busy workload and family life to contend with. This will r [...]

    29. I was surprised how much I liked this book!First off - I didn't like this book because it was written by a celebrity. I also didn't like it because it was well written. I did like it because it was written by a real person who was being open and real with me. I did like it because it focused on a more complete health and happiness then just "eat this not that to be super thin." I loved Kate's loving and forgiving view on health. I love that it's not about being a certain weight, or size. It's ab [...]
