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'!

I purchased this book approximately a month ago and deliberately held off reviewing it in order to implement Mikes advice and see if it worked, seemed the obvious way to review this type of book. I like to think of this book as A HERTZ manual, you know the ones that told you how to fix things on the model of car you owned. So reading how to change your brake pads isn't going to change your break pads is it ! The reason Energy Is Everything stands out from the myriad of other books on bettering yourself, is you won't just read it, you will do it ! Mike understands the difficulty in getting going with changing life style and offers a realistic, sensible and ultimately workable lasting approach. Chapter one deals with your mind explaining clearly why most of us have failed with diets and exercise before and once the lightbulb above your head pops on your ready to make the changes you've dreamed about. The book is great read, not fussy or over complicated, to be read more than once in order to really embrace and enjoy.

My wife and I are weeks into this life changing period and yes we have increased our energy levels massively, I really didn't imagine I would feel so good. And by the way don't expect some magical spell or special secret that only Mike Knows, this approach works because it is based solidly on proven science !

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

This book is a little hidden gem. It comprises som much common sense wisdom that it is three times worth the money. Buy it, read it, and apply it, and great things will happen to your life.
The most elevating point I've derived from this book is the knowledge that habit formation simply takes a tremendous amount of commitment and time and that it is not me, who's just weak-willed and stupid. That's the reason why all 'life changing' programmes out there, are doomed to fail and will only make one person better off, the author/inventor of the programme. Mike MacDonald takes a much more down to earth approach; it is slow, it is tiresome, and hard - but it sticks. And franckly don't we all, deeply inside, know that these 'wonder cures' do not really work? Well, here's some alternative. Try it!
