Format: Hardcover
Much as I love the Biggest Loser as an entertaining show, I wasn't really expecting this book to be any good and bought it off the back of the reviews. I definitely was not hoping for shoddy 'Dr' Gillian McKeith style science.

HOwever I was really pleasantly surprised. I had bought it because of recurring issues with reproductive hormones which the doctors seem to be at a loss with, if a contraceptive pill or anti-depressant doesn't change it, they don't seem to know what else to look at. So I am doing some reading.

What I liked about it was that it explained the biological mechanisms behind the advice. Some people might not like that level of detail if they are looking for essentially a diet book, but for me it is essential to know why someone is suggesting something. I am married to a bio-medic and he's very skeptical of this sort of thing. However when I have asked him to look at certain parts of the book he has agreed that the mechanisms she describes are as he understands. As he doesn't work in endocrinology I am not trying to suggest that therefore he is endorsing all the science in it and some of the information about how the hormones interact with each other was new to him but we have both found it really interesting.

Gillian assumes that your main reason for reading is likely to be weight loss and general lack of well-being so concentrates on those hormones which have an effect on the parts of metabolism which may affect weight, but doesn't narrowly stick to those. Instead she explains how a raft of them interdepend, interact and interfere with each other, and then how your actions can tip one or two over the edge and set off a chain reaction which goes way beyond the initial effect.

I bought this book 3 years ago when I couldn't fit into a uniform and bought some scales to see the real damage. I had peaked at 15 stone 10 having been 10 st 6 at 21: not a good position to be in having given up cigarettes about 5 times. I read this book in a weekend and implemented the key tenants immediately and started her work out plan. I lost a stone in the first month and more steadily over the next 3 years. I have lost 3 stone of fat and put on a stone of muscle since. This a book that essentially teaches us when and why to eat certain foods. E.g pasta at lunch time not at night, why diet drinks are just as bad as full fat ones and why 8 hours of sleep is essential and caffeine isn't and why sleep and exercise play such an important part in our lifes. In essence, this book reshaped my life - It is not a diet book, it is so much more than that

Jillian Michaels explains hormones and metabolism in terms that are easy for anyone to understand. Being her, she takes an extreme view of how we should all be protecting ourselves from environmental issues.

The book is well written in everyday (American) language and for the first time in over 30 years I understand the condition I have suffered from since the birth of my first child. This is not an easy option diet book, its about being the healthiest you can be. Great for those looking for information not for those wanting a quick fix. Well after all it is America's toughest trainer, what would you expect?

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The negatives:

- The Kindle version does not replicate some of the tables very well and the text tends to get "trimmed" slightly on the left hand side. Tables and charts also needed enlarging.
- The book is entirely US-centric, so lists of foods, website resources, suppliers, shops etc will mean little or nothing to the UK reader. This renders the very helpful shopping lists/names of organic brands of foods (and subsequently some of the recipes) all but useless in the UK.
- Following on from this, the discussions about visiting your endocrinologist, health insurance payments/plans are largely irrelevant to those in the UK, particularly if you are not under regular medical supervision.
- The vast amount of information about various perceived toxic threats in our systems could come across as scaremongering, particularly when there is not always complete evidence to support claims.
- The menu plan, while varied for omnivores is all but useless for vegetarians as there are only very few meals/recipes without meat or fish.

The UK reader also has to take into account that regulations about the amount of XYZ chemicals in food production/materials differ in the UK and it would take a vast amount of additional research to find the relevant information.

The positives:

- The book is written in a fantastic chatty style which communicates a lot of complicated information very simply and clearly.
- There is a list of references provided, which the sceptic in me appreciated, although it would be difficult to trawl through the lot of material to fact-check.

Thought this book would be very Americanised and products would be different. But it was very informative. And have applied many of jillians ideas to my life and I have felt a lot better.
