Bought this from B&N years ago but only really committed to the program about six months ago. Don't let the cheesy name and cover fool you, this is actually some really good, fundamental exercise and diet information. After some research I decided upon this program because it emphasizes stretching, moderation, and healthy eating habits instead of supplements and focusing on only a few exercises / muscle groups at a time. This isn't one of those fad diet and exercise things they put in the tabloids.

The book is OK. BUT it is a scientific FACT all you can do to lose weight is take in fewer calories than you burn, then you will lose weight. There is NO other way, no magic fat burning pill or diet. Just eat less(and healthy),work out hard and you will lose weight. You must chage your basic eating habits to have long term weight loss. Fad diets just take you money and promise quick cures which are totally bogus.

The author outlines 3 areas of focus to achieve the Hollywood body: diet, aerobic conditioning, and weight lifting. It is obvious that his expertise is in the physical work-outs, because the nutritional part is not well defined. Most books of this type would give the reader sample menus. For example, he gives Tier 1 and Tier 2 protiens, vegetables, etc. However, the choices are slim indeed for breakfast (egg whites or tofu?), the most important meal of the day. His recommendations for food selections also appear to be conflicting at times (no sugar and avoid sugar substitutes but include yogurt once a day..when was the last time you saw yogurt without sugar or substitute?). And to say the portion size of a Tier 1 protein equals the palm of the hand and a Tier 1 vegetable is equal to the size of the protein...does that mean a single layer, a pile, or what??? I am well read in nutritional materials, and I found it all confusing. How would a newbie translate this nebulous information?? On the other hand, I have started his workouts, and I believe they will give results.
