I have long struggled with binge eating, self-esteem issues and I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is to say the least, grim! This makes the whole exercising and eating sensibly a challenge. I came across this book in my never ending search for that little nugget of something that may end up being my gold. I have read many self help books on over eating but nothing really did it for me. This book is fantastic. It's easy and quick to read and covers nutrition, exercise and mindset, ie how we have autonomous choices to make rather than having to feel victim to circumstances we deem out of our control. It is written in a no-nonsense, authentic and very readable way. It just makes sense and the section on effective training for fat loss and understanding our metabolism gives an insight into why our body does what it does and how sometimes we can sabotage our best efforts without realising just because we didn't understand how it works. The author also has a very interesting and useful website full of tips. He has a very positive philosophy and is clearly passionate about energising us! I will be reading this book again and if you feel you need something to help clarify this whole food/exercise business I don't think you will go far wrong if you do the same.

Generally provides a very common sense approach to nutrition and exercise. This may not sound like particularly high praise, but given the misinformation and myths that are so common in the 'dieting' industry, it's a breath of fresh air.

This doesn't provide magical answers - if you read the book but don't commit to any of the lessons that it tries to teach, then it's obviously not going to make a difference. As somebody already interested in improving my health, I found this very useful. The fact that it's such a short book I would say is a massive advantage, as all the hot air and constant repetition generally found in these sort of books is thankfully omitted in favour of getting to the point. This means that if you need to re-read a section to motivate yourself again or as a reminder, then you can do it in a short period of time and come away with a clear impression of what you need to do.

This first book from personal trainer Mike Macdonald is his unique take on his individual philosophy for a healthy and happy existence.

Where this books differs from others in the genre is that Mike combines a deep knowledge of the prevaling science in fitness and nutrition, together with a understanding of how to apply this practically on an everyday basis and to translate it into a language which all readers can understand and more importantly, incorporate into their busy lives to achieve the best results.

I would recommend this book to those fed up with trying unsuccessfully to follow the latest extreme diet or exercise fads and instead want something which is clear, easy to follow and focuses on the fundamental things that actually matter most to ensure you achieve the 'best version of you'!

Mike has put together a book that offers the reader the opportunity to see that short term fixes are not the answer. I particularly liked the section on mind set as we frequently forget the driving factors behind embedded learning and habits that have probably been formed in our childhood which we need to addressed. As a runner I am now reassessing my training and not just notching up junk miles. From the book I have also taken that I do not need to feel guilty about missing a training session and to listen more carefully to what my body is saying.
Hope this is a success as it is an easy to read informative book

Before going further, I have to admit to a counter-interest in reading this book; I live in same city as the author, am studying much the same course as he did and I intend running a business very much along the same lines as AKR Conditioning after I graduate. I also hope to write a book (or several) on health and fitness related topics so reading this book was very much a case of ‘checking out the competition’ and seeing if it is any good. It is, damn it.

The health and fitness world is full of people who really don’t know very much but make a big noise about the latest idea, whatever that may be. A complex subject is over-simplified and polarised into camps who advocate one diet or exercise method over another and, conversely (and illogically), it is also over-complicated by these same ‘gurus’ who say you have to follow strict routines of eating and exercising whereas the reality for most people to be healthier and fitter is quite straight forward; get a range of exercise and eat healthy food (but not too much of it). Simples, right?

Mike MacDonald does something rare in the fitness world, tying in fitness training, nutrition and mental well-being, and does it well. He doesn’t advocate extremes of anything but does ask you to consider how each and every action you take or thought you have ties into one another to lead you towards being a happier and healthier person. I have a passion for everything related to health and fitness and I hate, with a passion, books and websites which make claims without evidence to back them up. So it is really refreshing to read a book written by someone who is clearly well informed about the subject and who is backed up by evidence rather than opinion. He presents the information clearly and simply but does not dumb it down in any way.
