This book was recommended to me by a friend who is a personal trainer/fitness instructor, because she has been there and uses the principles in this book herself. I must say, that even before I began to read it, the ideas did appeal to me - Burn Fat and Gain Muscle - exactly what I'm aiming for. I have seen some negative reviews saying it's just more of the same old same. In some ways they're right, but people some times need to have things pointed out to them, in a way that they make a connecti ...more

I really like the approach of this plan. Eat whole foods and depending on what kind of burner you are, eat accordingly. Hormones are a big key and I think it's forgotten a lot in the weight loss realm. Your metabolism is set partly by your hormones, so this book helps you balance your hormones and in turn re-set your metabolism. Really good info in this book

Live the concepts in this book as far as weight loss through picking the right foods, the diet part is straight forward and rather simple. The included recipes were easy, making it much more likely that a person will follow.

The weight training section is also very simple and straightforward. The exercises are easy to follow with picture examples. Pick 4 exercises and do them over and over in a circuit, resting when needed, for 20-25 minutes.

The cardio part is what doesn't work for me. Walking (3

Hard to follow; poorly organized. Repeats a lot of information. Bottom line - low carb, clean eating and weights/circuit training.

When people asked me in the past what "diet" I was using to lose weight, I was at a loss for an answer. I didn't think that the ideas I was following had ever been gathered together and given a name. Now I have an answer to give people who are looking for guidance that works.

Personally, I am a calorie-counter and I could never blindly follow the advice in this book without an idea of how much I had consumed at the end of the day. But for people who hate calorie counting, this book presents an ea

The title got me, what else can I say? Not that I haven't read anything similar to this healthy lifestyle plan but I took the risk because... the blurbs seemed real and honest, too. It sure had a lot to say about the right kind and amount of exercise to be done, but my favorite part was when I was made to take this quiz to find out whether I was a muscle or a sugar burner, or both (as foreseen, I am both), and it provided a detailed workout and diet plan for each type afterward, which all looked ...more

Wow! An eye opener!

I've tried a lot of 'eat-right' programs, the latest being the low-carb diet. I couldn't stay on it because I craved fruit, and the low-carb regimen discourages this highly enriched fiber food item - I had to move on. This book seems to be the all-around answer to what I've been looking for - I pray it will finally be the lasting food-stability/exercise life-style I crave.

A good take on fitness and nutrition. The Metabolic explanation of hormone function in the body was excellent. The exercises were good, but provided no modifications for imbalances. The nutrition plan is extremely restrictive and, for me, brought entirely too much attention to number of bites eaten.
Aug 26, 2010 Heather rated it it was amazing
I was recommended this by my fiance's mom, who knew I was trying to lose a little bit of weight before the wedding.
The results were fantastic. My profile's recommendations weren't too different from the way I preferred eating; however, with the addition of protein bars and green tea, I have noticed positive changes in my mood, weight, and energy levels.
I love it because when my fiance's mom went on a diet, it would wreak havoc on my system, and I would sometimes put on weight. With this one, eve

This book seems to get some things right, but not 100% convinced in everything the brothers Teta espouse here. That said, I do think that a few of the concepts here are helpful though such as adjusting number of bites of carbs to suit one's physiological needs and the concept of keeping HEC (hunger, energy, cravings) in check. At some degree, I also think it is a bad plan to make too many changes at once as I've never gotten very good results for long that way.

Anyone can read and apply what's in this book and reap the benefits of it.
They theory behind their methodology is great .. And the practical instructions are even better.

Well, I didn't hate it as much as I expected. I never would have chosen this to read for myself, but it had some interesting ideas. Now...what will I do with the info? Hmmm.

The authors have some interesting suggestions about when to exercise, when not to exercise and how to eat to build muscle and lose fat. Easy to read and practical.
Sep 24, 2016 Krissy rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
Nothing revolutionary, but an easy read. My biggest problem with the book is the concept of a "reward meal" I really dislike the idea of using food as a reward. I wish they had referred to it as a "reset meal".

I really like the science, behind the scenes of burning fat. Interesting book.

A good intro to the ME diet. The website has more detailed info about how hormones come into play with weight loss.

A decent overview of nutrition and how different foods affect your individual biochemistry. Does a good job of explaining it all in lay terms and provides sound nutritional advice as well as some great mental coaching/behavioral change tips. Sticks to a low-starch philosophy, but explains why, and provides an easy style of eating that doesn't involve measuring out every portion of every food. Instead, provides guidance on "bites" of starches during each meal, which may be easier for most people.

This book had a ton of great information on how Metabolism works, something that is really important for me to know, as I have Hashimotos Thyroid Disorder. This condition hugely messes up my metabolism. Now if I could just stick with a healthy metabolic diet for myself maybe I would feel a lot better than I do. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a highly motivated individual and has been having problems understanding how to make their metabolism function at optimal peak.

This book was recommended to me by a personal trainer that I have been seeing for a few weeks now. As I read, I'm finding the plan very logical. What I'm also learning is that while I eat fairly well already, I'm not eating enough. In the two weeks that I have been following the plan 'roughly' and making different choices and adding more food, I've lost and kept off a couple of pounds. I realize these results are not as dramatic as other folks, but I'll take it.
Dec 15, 2013 Rachel rated it did not like it  ·  review of another edition
I did not like this book. I didn't like the approach, the exercise plan, or the eating plan. The book has received many good reviews - it just wasn't for me. There was one section that I really liked that discussed lifestyle choices we make (sleep, stress, alcohol, etc.) and their effect on our metabolism. It was convincing enough that I made some changes to my evening routine and sleep habits.

Planning to implement a lot of stuff from this book starting next week. Not for the workout piece,although I will be easing off some classes and focusing on functional fitness and keeping my cortisol levels down. My main focus will be on the rest and food choices to see how my body reacts hormonally. Going to give it 2 months, then reevaluate.

Many people will try and convince you that dieting is as simple as calories in and calories out but that is no longer the case. Genetically we are all very different and I love how this book outlines what are the best foods for your body type. I will keep the book on hand to reference often.
Jan 27, 2012 Julie rated it it was amazing
Read, reread, and currently reading. This is the message that I needed to hear at this point in my life. So far, this diet has me feeling better and sleeping like a baby. I am looking forward to continuing the transition to making this my permanent way of life and becoming a better me.

Another take on the same low to no-carb plans we've seen a million times. I enjoy the Metabolic Effect (ME) workout class at my gym, but this book was nothing new. Same idea as South Beach or Paleo. Fine if you haven't already read those, otherwise same old caveman plan.

I worked out with Jade and Keoni for several years. They are great trainers and extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and fitness. Their own levels of health and vitality are a testament to the efficacy of the methods they write about here.

So far this diet book is different from the typical diet book. It doesn't count calories but focus on unlocking your fat burning hormones. I've found out I'm a sugar burner and need to watch my carb intake.

Loved the theory behind it. It made a lot of sense. But for me, it was hard to put into practice especially the weight training as it was hard to keep up without feeling shattered the next day.

Like the idea of lifting weights and eating clean. Is a little extreme for me at the moment but adapting some of the lifestyle changes.
