5 Stars Best Book Ever
This is a great book. Eventhought it is a bit dated the rules still apply and it has a lot of wonerful common sense items that are great if you are serious about losing the weight. I have only had the book for two weeks and I have already lost 3 pounds.
5 Stars This made me so slim and sexy
Great book with easy to follow directions and plans to get slim and sexy quickly.
4 Stars Yes it works, yes you have to sweat
Yes this book works and of course, no magic bullets so prepare to get sweaty and make a schedule to fit in the workouts and food planning. All of this is included in the book so it’s not too hard and what I like most about the book is the numerous exercises you can do at home with little or no equipment. This means you can do most of them at home, while traveling or wherever you happen to be. Follow the plans and you will loose weight, how much is up to you and how closely you want to follow their suggestions.
5 Stars What is your motivation?
The new year has come and gone for many of us, and for some this might have been a purchase to help get us off the couch and back into shape. I know that is why I bought it initially. What I didn’t realize is the inherent motivational value this book can have.
I started the new year year at 242 pounds, overweight and lazy, breathing hard to get up my stairs at home. Reading this at night, and during my down time, instead of sitting on the couch watching TV, really helped to ease my mind into actually doing it. The recipes are awesome, with everything I could ever want. Best yet, the book details cooking instructions, 4 weeks of meals and example exercises. While the exercises have a little less value in this book because it usually takes knowledge of working out to understand the how-to, they are an added bonus.
Essentially, this book tells you exactly what you need to know. Following it to the letter, like other diet books, would be a mistake and the author points this out. In one portion, the author describes the book as a gateway to understanding how to eat healthier on a constant basis, not always having to refer to a book or chart, but rather you gain understanding in what to look for and what will work and not work for you.
I have finished reading this book, and 1.5 months after, I am down 20 pounds. I didn’t follow the entire 4 week food regimen, or do every single exercise. Instead I used it for ideas, recipes, and adding exercises into my growing repertoire instead of my growing waist line.
I highly recommend this book, male or female (although it does take a bit of a male presentation, as it is from Men’s Health).
Diets are guidelines to life, not restrictions or boundaries to be skirted. This book really shows you that, and if you take anything away from it, do so in a positive manner, because that is the only way that this will ever work.
5 Stars Most Helpful and Practical Diet Book Ever!!!!
I have researched dozens of diet books and this is the only one I use and recommend.
