Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
* This four-week plan is based on boosting the metabolic rate. Although Shilstone identifies various foods as being able to "burn fat," a misleading concept, still the diet, recipes, and exercise plans are reasonable and not dangerous in any way. The author of Lose Your Love Handles and Maximum Energy for Life, Shilstone has worked with heavyweight champions Michael Spinks and Roy Jones Jr. This guide, although it includes a diet for women, will appeal primarily to men. (from the Diet/Fitness roundup by Susan Hagloch) (Library Journal, January 15, 2005)

    Educational and a proven winner!

    It's great to read a book on diet/health/fitness and that is straightforward, educational, and not trying to sell me something! Mackie Shilstone has taught me that it's not about the carbs, but about the metabolism...makes lots of sense and has proven to be successful for me. Follow his plan and it should work for you, too!
