This is not a book-its a sales brochure!! Avoid this one unless you are happy to sign up to lots of "slimming" aids which will certainly slim your wallet

A short book with tips and excercises but nothing new. Lets face it we all know to eat less and excercise more

Anyone whose read anything on weight loss will already know the contents of this sales brochure. It basically says eat less, do stomache crunches and sign up to a spam list to be inundated with emails to buy products.

This Even perpetuates the drink 8 glasses of water myth which shows there is no actual understanding of much of this by the author. She even includes a formula which states for me to lose weight I need to eat 3,000 calories a day! I eat much less than that now and am not losing it so clearly this is misinformation.

If you really want to lose weight or belly fat, there are much better books out there.

This book gives you the reason to lose weight, it does not give you a diet, but explains just what you need to eat and drink, follow and you will see a difference, videos are good at showing the right exercises, very helpful, but it is up to you as to whetnrr you gollow or not, hive if a go.

Although the book is written for the American market the theory is just the same. I've heard most of the facts before, but I did find the bit near the end on stress and cortisol making you hang on to the fat fascinating.

I personally don't drink fizzy drinks, diet or full sugar, ever, but I am keen to make people I know realise just how bad they are. This book gave me the info I needed.

I eat well, make my own food, grow my own veggies and swim a couple of miles a week, but I still need to find ways to burn that last stubborn 14lbs that hangs around like an unwelcome guest! Maybe I'll try shaking my exercise up with some of the crunches that are mentioned in the book.

All in all, it's a book that gives you the facts and makes it clear that it's up to you to try and make it work. What have you got to lose? (Apart from weight!)

this book merits an ok for its derivative advice on losing weight, but nothing more. It has not got beyond the eat less and exercise more line that conventional medical doctors say. It says it is all right to drink sodas when it really is not. It has been shown that exercise, whatever benefits it does give, does not produce weight loss. It does not emphasize enough the importance of clean water. I would utterly dispute the idea that regular 5 or 6 meals a day is the way forward; I once tried it and had to give up in disappointed misery. I found the title therefore misleading. In searching for the means to wweight loss the book suggested innovative and clear modern research on the subject. What we get is rather tired and unhelpful advice.

The writer takes her information from many authoritive studies, and therefore is not just an opiniated hack, or fitness junky reeling out the same old learn along the way nonsense. This a short read, but addresses many of the subjects in easy to understand terms an the links to youtube to show the proper way to do the essential excersise is very useful albeit that you have to filter out a lot of advertising, to view the video it's worth it,
Don't blamed on the author, who has just tried to show the best, out of a sea of mediocre video's. I therefore have no quarms in giving this book a good rating an my recommendation for what that's worth? To anyone wanting to loose weight and tone up their abdominal muscles.

This is the first book I have read on diet and exercise that has not tried to blind me with science and surveys. Thank you. Found Jenny Allans book useful, informative and motivational.

Simple and easy to understand. Instructive videos using actual people to demonstrate. I can't wait to start. Here's to a new flatter stomach.
