THE FIT BOTTOMED GIRLS ANTI-DIET: 10-Minute Fixes to Get the Body You Want and a Life You'll Love, by Jennipher Walters and Erin Whitehead. Harmony Books, 312 pp., $17.

Last year, Time magazine named the FitBottomedGirls.com website, created in 2008 by authors Jennipher Walters and Erin Whitehead, one of its top Twitter feeds. Walters, a certified personal trainer, and Whitehead, who "brings a normal-gal approach to the mix," feature posts on healthy eating and exercise.

Words like "rad" and "rockin' " -- and plenty of exclamation points -- season this book, but their advice makes sense.

There are some shopping lists, meal plans and recipes, but the book's focus is psychological. "You deserve to be the best version of yourself," they write. Chapter-ending "10-Minute Fixes" include learning to say no, journaling, creating "me time" and a "Feel-Good Morning Ritual."

THE SCOOP There are sections on setbacks and how to overcome them, setting goals, embracing imperfection and tapping into "a specific moment in your life when you felt your best."

THE BOTTOM LINE This breezy book is full of information -- and even wisdom.
