Christmas is fast approaching, and with it comes the time of inactivity and oversized dinners. But it’s also a time for giving.
So I thought, why not combine the two and provide you with a list of the best books on health, fitness and weight loss. You can give a book to someone you care about, or buy a copy for yourself.
Here’s a curated list of my 5 favorite bestsellers on the topic.
