Once, I went on a three month trip through the Rockies with a group of 12, and there were two women named Stephanie. (My name is spelled ‘Stefani,’ but pronounced ‘Stephanie,’ to be clear. Maybe I should have told you that years ago. *Sigh.) In order to distinguish, she became “Stephie G” and I became “Fani.” As in, if you pronounced my name like Gwen Stefani and left off the ‘Ste.’
So anyway, long story short: I am Fani.
And when I talk in third person, I am Fani.
Fani is all over the internet these days, and how amazingly fun is that?
This is what is going on:
–Sexy by Nature is again hovering around the #1 spot in the category “whole foods” on Amazon!
This doesn’t mean much, though. The book shot up in the rankings because I just this week got some reviews on some important websites (more about which in a minute). It’s performance has actually been quite low. My heart’s not broken, not quite, I do believe in us!, but I am definitely working hard to keep our numbers growing!
We cannot spread the good love and food word if we don’t have word of mouth.
So this is where you come in.
Did you buy the book? Could you write a review? Every single review is one more vote for us in the Amazon world, and, literally, every single one counts. If you could put something up on Amazon, Good Reads, Barnes and Noble, I and the rest of this movement will be indebted to you forever.
Do you have a Facebook page? Twitter account? Pinterest? Instagram? Want to share the book with your followers? (Here’s the amazon page!) Do so and tag the PaleoforWomen page and I’ll go ahead and share your stuff back in turn!
-Last week, the popular hippy yoga largely vegetarian website Mind Body Green published an article I wrote called “6 Reasons the Paleo Diet is Great for Women.” Originally, I called it “6 Reasons the Paleo Diet is the Best Diet for Women,” but I guess they wanted to tone it down. The article’s about soy and grains and and nutrient density and eating when you’re hungry and stopping when you’re full.
There are a ton of really dumb comments. Sorry. That’s rude. But there’s a lot of blood type talk going on. Vegetarianism I consider to be less crazy, and a lot of hate coming from that angle, too. If you want to go defend me and our lifestyle, please, be my guest. If not, please, spare yourself the agony and don’t read the comments.
-Twitter and instagram really, really like my new “Love is the New Skinny” campaign (see here), which I am going to continue, and which I think might be the title for my next book.
Pin and tag if you like, whoopah!
(This is me, btws.)
–Sexy by Nature has been reviewed and loved by some really, really kick ass people.
Long, fun reviews:
1) Stacy Toth and blogger Courtney at Paleo Parents.
2) Heather Spergel at HeatherSpergel.com (brought tears to my eyes)
3) Nina at Paleo Owl. (A truly great review, saying this incredible bit about Sexy by Nature having “it all:”
For me personally, Sexy by Nature is like a sassy sister to The Paleo Coach. This Sherlock finally got an adequate Waston. I know that my “obsession” with EPLifeFit, Jason and his book might seem a little repulsive to you by now, but hey, so is running and chronic cardio, and pictures of fitness models with “motivational quotes” to me.
The reason that I have a Top 3 paleo books (The Paleo Coach, It Starts With Food and Primal Connections) and not just one, is that every book has “something” and no book has it all. Sexy By Nature DOES HAVE IT ALL. Sexy By Nature takes all the most important knowledge that the author gained over time, mixed it with some solid science and research, sprinkled it with sweet bits of her personality and added a provocative title on top.)
4) Liz Wolfe’s video review at Real Food Liz.
5) Kaila Prins at In My Skinny Genes
6) Jason Seib @ Everyday Paleo (another one that brought tears to my eyes. It means the world to me to have so much of Jason’s respect.)
Short and to the point reviews:
8) Pete’s Paleo
9) Richard Nikoley at Free the Animal
And some really beautiful reviews over on the Amazon page by incredible people like Jimmy Moore, George Bryant, Russ Crandall, Sarah Fragoso, Todd Dosenberry, and Ashley Tudor.
–But, as you have seen, this is just 9 blogger reviews! And 34 Amazon reviews.
We can do so much better.
So I am! Here we go, ladies, to the mattresses, huzzah, huzzah!
And there’s more on the way, as always!
