About this item

THE LAST DIET BOOK YOULL EVER NEED

With so much conflicting weight-loss advice out there to confuse your efforts, its no wonder you havent been successful losing weight and keeping it off. But with Bob Harper, superstar trainer and co-host of NBCs hit show The Biggest Loser as your personal authority and coach, you can and will finally shed the poundswhether you want to lose two or two hundred!

Distilling Bobs vast knowledge of nutrition, weight-loss strategy, and human nature down to twenty simple, nonnegotiable principles, The Skinny Rules will help you step away from a reliance on processed foods and the need for so much sweet and salt and step into a newly thin lifestyle. And Bobs methods couldnt be more straightforward.

Taking the guesswork out of implementing the Skinny Rules, Bob offers a months worth of menu plans and more than 90 delicious, rule-abiding recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks to keep you cooking and eating skinny for life. You ll be happily astounded to see the variety and volume of the tasty food on your plate! He also includes terrific tips for what to stock in your fridge and what to prepare every weekend in order to set yourself up for success during your too-busy-to-cook weekdays.

A virtual GPS to your weight-loss goals, The Skinny Rules takes the mystery out of the process, offering the fastest route to your skinny destination.

LOSING WEIGHT IS NOW AS SIMPLE AS 1-2-3... AND 3-15-18-20 TOO!

Rule #3: Eat protein at every meal, making some kind of fish your go-to protein as often as you can. Take your weight and divide it by twothats more or less how much protein you should be eating in grams every day.

Rule #15: Eat at least ten meals a week at home (and cook them yourself). Restaurant portions are usually 40 to 50 percent bigger than what youd serve at homethe more you eat out, the more you overeat. Set yourself up for success by preparing my turkey meatballs, hummus, and roasted vegetables on the weekend so that you will have go-to staples and no excuses!

Rule #18: Go to bed slightly hungry. Denied fuel for more than five hours, your body will start burning its own fat and sugar. Make a point not to eat after dinner and youll be burning fat while youre sleeping.

Rule #20: Enjoy a splurge meal once a week. Unlike episodic bingeing, splurge meals are an ingredient in your diet. When you plan something, you are in control.

I've been losing 1/2 to 1 pound a day since I started following the rules in this book and working out on my Wii Fit Plus.

I loved this book. It was very straight forward, easy to read, and easy to follow. I loved that it included a meal plan and recipes. I loosely followed the meal plan while I was reading it the first week, and lost 3lbs (with no exercise). I can't wait to see how I do when I follow it 100% and add exercise.

This is a great book that teaches you about nutrition, how your body works, and invaluable advice on losing weight. All real stuff, no fads, no dime-a-dozen weight loss concepts that only reap temporary results. I am taking the advice from the book and feeling thinner, but most importantly I'm feeling healthier.
