Ayla Skye launches her new book, The Eat From Home Diet. It promises to slim your waistline and fatten your wallet. Live Fit Magazine talks to Ayla about her new book, her elite training for the U.S. Olympics and why she is so passionate about teaching people to eat healthy.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to train for the Olympics? Ayla Skye trained relentlessly to represent the United States team until a shoulder injury crushed her dreams of competing in the modern pentathlon. Ultimately it lead to a career change and, soon, Skye was well on her way to fulfilling a new dream; teaching people how to cook nutritious meals using simple ingredients and very little time.
Skye’s the author of the new book, The Eat From Home Diet. Her website Quick&Fit.com is the beginning of what she hopes will be a return of the home-cooked meal and a way to help the world get healthy one delicious meal at a time.
Skye grew up helping her mother in the kitchen and savoring nutritious, home-cooked food. But when she went off to college to study business finance, she was disgusted by the pre-packaged, on-the-go meals that her busy classmates scarfed down while studying.
Skye started teaching her curious friends how to save time and money while simultaneously saving their waistlines and bottoms from the infamous freshman 5, 10, or even 15 pounds.
Skye trained as much as eight hours a day to win a spot on the U.S. Olympic team. Until her should injury forced her out of an athletic dream but into a new career helping people learn to eat healthy. Ayla wrote The Eat From Home Diet to answer a need. “I saw very unhealthy people and I would be asked all the time, ‘What can I do to lose weight?’ or ‘I feel lousy and am taking lots of medicine; how can I get healthy like you?’,” says Skye.
Start with the foundation of home-cooked meals on a family dinner table, add a dash of maturity, a splash of sex appeal, and a pinch of desire to serve others, and you have Skye’s recipe for success.
Her book, The Eat From Home Diet, is filled with advice and helpful tips and tricks to transition into a healthier lifestyle. One of the themes of the book is the financial perks of home-cooked food. Confident that her food rivals healthier fast-food options such as the often pricy Subway, Skye explains, “I can make that same thing at home for two or three dollars and even more delicious.”
In the book, you’ll find several recipes that can be made on Skye’s go-to kitchen essentials: the George Forman grill, a crock-pot, and a microwave. And don’t worry about unfamiliar recipes with impossible to find ingredients. Skye, who’s favorite place to shop for healthy ingredients is Trader Joe’s, claims that she features meals people know and love, but with better quality ingredients.”
Skye is hoping to reach those who are desperate to lose weight. Her book is a valuable tool for anyone who’s frustrated with diet fads that haven’t worked.
While some may question her credibility, she admits that she is not a personal trainer nor a nutritionist on her website Quick&Fit.com. However, give her book a good study and you’ll see she knows her stuff. Skye is a relatable role model for anyone eager to add some flavor to their diet and money to their wallet.
Skye is determined to show readers eating healthy can be done, even if you’re like Skye, “I don’t have time to cook”. She knows fast-food has an edge, “It’s the convenience factor of going through the drive thru,” Skye explains.
But Skye believes her motto will help readers think twice before racing through the fast-food line, “When you eat at home, you’re in control of what you’re eating.”
While she reassures her readers that you don’t have to restrict yourself to a diet of broccoli, brown rice and chicken, she stands by the fact that, “80 percent of maintaining your health and losing weight is what you eat.” What if you could have a decadent cherry pie in less than 10 minutes without the guilt? It seems you really can have your pie and eat it too with the help of Ayla Skye and her book, The Eat From Home Diet.
