Overview

The world-renowned fitness coach on the hit TV show The Biggest Loser presents his winning approach to lasting weight loss by showing how to get at the root of your overeating problem, followed by a nutritionally savvy diet and unique exercise plan.
On The Biggest Loser, Bob Harper gives contestants the practical tools and psychological insights they need to get into the best shape of their lives. The key to his success is the emotional connection he makes with each participant, and he brings that same spirit to Are You Ready!

Harper starts with a four-step strategy for getting at the root of negative thought patterns and destructive behaviors, replacing both with a clear way to build self-worth and confidence. With these tools in place, people are empowered to make real, lasting changes in their lives. In an easy-to-follow eating plan, he provides lists of foods that are nutrient-dense and naturally low in calories, more than twenty sample menus, and tips on eating on the run, in restaurants, and on vacation. His fitness plan is geared to making exercise an integral part of daily life with workouts (ranging from 20 to 60 minutes) based on training techniques that tone and strengthen, burn calories, and reshape the body.

Woven throughout Are You Ready! are true-life success stories that will keep readers engaged and motivated; bulleted tips, tools, and coping strategies; and sidebars debunking common myths about food and fitness. Whether your goal is losing ten pounds or a hundred, you will find Harper’s message inspiring and his methods a proven path to finally achieving your dream of weight loss and fitness.

Editorial Reviews

Bob Harper was a popular personal trainer even before he became the fitness coach of The Big Loser's blue team. In Are You Ready! he applies those successful trimming techniques to the weight gain and midriff problems that most of us experience sometime in our lives. His approach is even more real than reality TV: He begins with a go-to-the-roots examination of negative thought patterns and destructive behaviors and replaces them with a motivational sense of self-worth and empowerment. But then the real work begins. His no-nonsense eating plan emphasizes low calorie, nutrient-dense foods, and his sensible 20-60-minute daily workout plans achieve results without sacrificing sanity. A total approach toward better health.
