awesome book if you are looking to train for an event or looking to change your lifestyle. I am using it to train for a tough mudder event. I don't 100% agree with her dietary advice but her toning, flexibility and aerobic training guides are worth every penny! buy the book used on Amazon for $8 bucks!

Well, after reading, I still don't know how to calculate my BMI. I even tried to do it online and got a different answer.

This book bangs on a bit about getting in the right mindset before setting your goals - I guess if you're starting from scratch that would be helpful, but I just wanted to get an idea of a workout plan that would get results.

The 12 week plan is awesome! The recipes aren't bad either.

The thing I like the most about the book is the language. You will feel as if Michelle is sitting next to you giving you positive speech and training you personally. The book makes you accountable of being over weight and gives nice techniques and enthusiasm. I loved it.
