About the Author

Wendy Chant is a certified personal trainer and a specialist in performance nutrition. She holds a bachelor of science degree in medical sciences and nutrition science. A champion body builder, she opened her own wellness center, ForeverFit [registered trademark] in 1998.


More About the Author

Wendy Chant's impressive credentials surpass the already rigorous standards required in the competitive and demanding field of nutrition sciences. She is a Certified Master Personal Trainer (MPT) and Specialist in Performance Nutrition (SPN), with a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Sciences and Nutrition Science.

Beginning her career as a personal trainer with Bally's Total Fitness, Wendy quickly achieved a national ranking as one of the top-ten in personal training. Her commitment to helping others achieve their goals inspired the opening of her own training studio, Forever Fit', in 1998.

As a Specialist in Performance Nutrition (SPN), Wendy was one of the first in her field to truly embrace the philosophy of food coaching. Food coaching is tailored to a client's particular goals, with the aim of making them feel fantastic on all levels ' health, vitality, moods and weight as well as confidence in their food choices and body image. By analyzing her client's diets and providing them with education and alternatives, she has since become a sought-after food coach, not just locally but nationally. In fact, her coaching has been so successful Wendy has her own line of supplements to help clients take matters into their own hands.

A former marathon runner and champion bodybuilder who competed on the national level, Wendy has since focused all of her attention on spreading the ForeverFit' message. From her corporate offices in Central Florida she divides her busy schedule between running her individual NUTRITION Boot Camp' classes and nurturing a full speaking schedule, holding seminars and workshops for the likes of FedEx, AT&T and Disney.

Conquer the Fat-Loss Code follows on from Wendy's previous New York Times bestseller, Crack the Fat Loss Code, taking weight loss to a whole new level. Start by cracking the code to learn the basics, and then move on to conquering the code for more variety.
The eating plans vary from her first book, with double accelerated weeks, and grapefruit days. Wendy has included extensive information on adding HIIT and EPOC cardio and incorporating weight training to make your fat burning more efficient whichever program you are following. The success planner is very clearly laid out on a double page spread for each day. Plus more recipes and meal plan ideas. There is also a chapter on what to do if you "fall off the wagon", plus how to incorporate holiday and special events.
I highly recommend this program. I'm on my second 8 week cycle, and losing weight easily, without missing out on the foods I love, like chocolate.

"Conquer the Fat-Loss Code" is nothing short of a complete strategy to lose fat, raise metabolism, shed unwanted pounds, and remain fit for life. Wendy Chant has presented a book that not only explains the science behind the body's reactions to food and exercise, but also details how to take advantage of these natural tendencies.

Chant's book is a quick read because she explains the fat-loss code in simple, readily understandable terms. She also outlines all the principles involved in optimizing fat-loss (like the meal plan cycles) in straightforward bulleted paragraphs and in-a-nutshell "Conquer the Code" boxes for quick comprehension and reference. Testimonials to the success of the Fat-Loss Code (inserted in the book as "What the Code Crackers Are Saying") are short stories that add to the credibility of the method.

Chant's book is also a long-term guide because it has a complete 8-week planner that lists daily food suggestions, weight training and cardio schedules, and a feedback log complete with the day's affirmation. The book not only explains the fat-loss code, it also provides the tools you need to apply the code to your particular situation. Chant even fine-tunes the program to differentiate plans for men and women, and those aiming to lose less (or more) than 30 pounds.

Of course, a plan is only as good as its Plan B. So, Chant also includes tips and tactics for special days like weekends, travel, and holidays, plus a special section on what to do if you fall off the wagon. And it goes without saying that the chapter on "Quick Tips for Ultimate Success" merits a permanent bookmark.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been on this program since Jan. 3, 2009. I've tried every program known to man since going thru menopause and it has worked great for me. You get to eat soooo much food and it is all food you buy in the grocery store. It was a little confusing in the beginning and took awhile to learn "the language" of the book but once you do, it comes so natural what to do. (I've lost 22 lbs and lots of inches. I was in a tight size 16 and now size 14's are getting too big.) This is a fat loss program,not a weight loss program. Due to chronic pain issues, my exercise is limited but I've still had great results. Wendy Chant has changed my life and I feel so "in control" of my way of eating with her guidance. I followed CRACK THE FAT LOSS CODE. I plan to purchase CONQUER THE FAT LOSS CODE soon. This book is worth every penny. By the way, you get Carb up days and cheat days which I think helps you stay on program and not have cravings. Best of luck!

44 of 59 people found the following review helpful By M. L Lamendola VINE VOICE on May 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is written for the ordinary American. This person hasn't spent hundreds of hours poring over the (often dry) literature about health and fitness, but has been bombarded by the disease culture marketing messages all around us. For such people, it's impossible to sort out what to do for a reasonably lean physique without help from the right source. This book is such a source.

People at a high level of physical conditioning [...]and health (I haven't been sick since 1971, despite having an immune system deficiency) could easily find fault with this book, if we lose sight of what this book is trying to accomplish and for whom it is written. Remember, most people haven't met with success in keeping their waistline the same--much less in body sculpting.

A person freed from our nation's disease culture would be horrified to find soda pop (osteoporosis in a can) or wheat flour products (typically made with hydrogenated oil, which is highly carcinogenic) seriously discussed in the context of dietary recommendations. Read again the title of this book. That's what it delivers on, not obtaining total health. It focuses on a goal that is achievable for the average person--optimal health can come later. Trying to do it all at once just isn't smart.

Reaching people where they are

People well into double digit fat territory aren't there because they are conscientious about their food choices (quite the opposite) and are simply getting too many calories from the extra large portions of kale they heap on at every meal. No, it's something else.

Those people are there because of many poor choices integrated into their lifestyle. Asking such people to completely revise the way they eat and exercise is a recipe for failure.
