As someone who has a terrible time trying to eat right, and has a belly that is steadily getting bigger as the years go by, this book is scaring the crap out of me, because the damage that belly fat can do to a person is downright frightening. I want you to get as scared as I did, because being overweight and having belly fat is no laughing matter. Dr. Travis Stork is the host of the television show The Doctors, and he is also an E.R. doctor at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville. Every day, ...more

I suppose it's only fair to disclose the fact that I adore Dr. Travis Stork, that I tune into The Doctors daily just to see him, and that I DVR'd and kept an episode where he lifted his shirt to reveal his abs. Delicious.

Moving on...referring to the "abs episode" I mentioned, it was dedicated entirely to the ideas revealed in this book. So I decided to check out the book and see if it read as well as it sounded from his tasty mouth. It did. Truly, it makes sense. And I appreciate the fact that h

A solid book which I read in a weekend. Since it's cowritten with Peter Moore of Men's Health, it's consistent with their other books as well as Superfoods.

The author advocates offers a series of small choices one can make and would like you to choose 3 of them. ie: always eat breakfast, watch less tv , eat fruit before every meal and don't drink sugary drinks etc.

Fun Fact: We make 200 decisions daily which impacts our weight......

Quick and easy read. I actually read it in one day but not get here to post that on time.

He is really straightforward and offers all kinds of ways to start to work on health without going on a "restrictive" diet. He emphasizes that this is a lifestyle change. Interesting. I am going to give it a try.

Logical plan, unfortunately I've already discovered most of what he said (then again, I have studied this topic specifically). One really enjoyable part: the recipes...made me hungry. :)
Some really good information, but they repeat a lot of the facts...many times! It's nice information to know and understand, but I don't think I need to be reminded every chapter!

I have no idea why this book is rated so high...Looks like a old wife tales put together by a high school student in note format.

A really good book, packed with useful, practical, very doable suggestions for losing weight, becoming more active and healthy.
Mar 26, 2015 Xiomara rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
I felt like there were some good advice, to ruminate on, i.e. the 200 health decision we make daily and how dairy can actually cut belly fat. Where Dr. Travis lost me was where he was saying if you eat the right things you can eat as much as you want, then a couple chapters later he's basically emphasizing the importance of portion control. I don't know how realistic it is to expect people to never again eat a refined carb. But I feel like the intention was sincere, like he really cares. I liked ...more

Weight loss for persons with lots of muscle, strength, and activity level capability -- not many new ideas but an engaging format.
Straightforward, common-sense method to weight loss which includes ideas, exercise and meal plans.
Dec 12, 2012 Marcia rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
While the prescriptions are things found in other books, this is written in an easy way and those who might struggle through some other books, might get through this one. Too bad most of the recipes are not kosher.
