5.0 out of 5 stars
Thank you thank you thank you!, 10 Oct 2009
I'm one of those people that has been chunky all my life. And being only 5'1", the extra weight really shows! I hit 12st a few years back and thought: that's it, something needs to be done. First I opted for pretty much starving myself, which I would NOT recommend, and although I lost a stone, it didn't really show. I then discovered running which helped me shed another stone, and I started looking a lot healthier. Even though my target was 9st, I plateaued around the 10st mark, not managing to budge the last stone.
Then earlier this year Paul McKenna's book was mentioned to me. I bought it, read it through, and thought: it makes so much sense! So with the combination of the four golden rules and regular running, I've finally shifted the last stone! The weight loss has worked out as more or less a pound a week, which I believe is a healthy rate. I've dropped 2 dress sizes, feel so much healthier and happier with my body, and have had countless positive comments! I also now have a much better relationship with food, and my cravings have more or less disappeared.
I really do recommend this book to anyone who wants to shift any amount of weight. Yes, it is just common sense, but I needed Mr McKenna to knock it into me :-)
