"Denise Austin makes the Energizer Bunny look lethargic." (People magazine on "Jumpstart" )

A native of San Pedro, California, Denise started gymnastics at the age of 12 and earned an athletic scholarship to the University of Arizona, graduating in 1979 with an exercise physiology degree. She began her career teaching aerobic exercise classes in the Los Angeles area and went on to cohost the The Jack LaLanne Show, in 1981. (Denise considers Jack LaLanne one of her role models, and she is delighted to still speak regularly with the 95-year-old fitness legend.)

During more than 25 years promoting health and fitness, Denise has created 82 workout videos or DVDs. Her enormous number of sales led to her 2003 induction into the Video Hall of Fame.

Top notch in the workout category! I am overjoyed with the easiness and the effectiveness of this plan!

Denise's Daily Dozen is not about donuts. When I opened this book the first sentence was a no holes barred approach:

Do you want to boost your metabolism, burn fat, tone up, and get into the best shape of your life?

Uhhh.... YEAH!

So what is Denise's book about?

From Denise Austin comes the perfect health book for anyone who wants to live better but just can't seem to find the time. Much more than just another exercise book, Denise's Daily Dozen covers a whole range of health and diet related concepts yet manages it all in a no-stress, time-conscious program of 12's. At it's core, this book has the minimum daily requirements to keep the reader flexible, strong and trim. Organized simply into seven chapters, which equal the seven days of the week, it covers a full week in daily allotments. Each day will have it's own focus from Monday being "fat burning day" to Sunday's "recharge and rejuvenate."

Denise has created a total body program, including a 7-day balanced meal plan that includes healthy recipes, and a workout that encompasses 12 exercises done in 12 minutes each day. Everyone can take just 12 minutes, at whatever time of the day works for them, and turn it over to these simple and fun exercises. Cardio, toning, yoga and breathing exercises...they're all here but in a way the maximizes effect while minimizing time.

Beyond a dozen exercises for each day of the week this book will include many other of Denise's dozens for each day.

I loved the layout of this book. For someone like me who tries really hard to be a whiz at time management and at the same time can be the Queen of procrastination....

Okay well let's just start off this post by saying...Denise Austin is 52 years old! Doesn't she look fantastic? Okay so how does she do it? Well she follows her own advice! It's a well kept secret but here goes....eat right and exercise. A lifestyle plan - not a diet.

In Denise's Daily Dozen, she's made it easy for those of us who moan that they don't have the time. Here's the deal - she's come up with 12 minutes of exercise to do every day of the week. Each day targets something different - cardio, abs, upper and lower body, yoga and more.

12 minutes! I can do that!

Now to go along with the 12 minutes a day in exercise, Denise has created meal plans for three weeks as well. No crazy grocery list - just everyday wholesome foods from Denise's 'Power of Twelve' eating plan - 3 fruits, 3 veggies, 3 proteins, 2 grains, 1 fat. The nutritional info for each day is listed too.

There are lots of extras tucked into the pages, text boxes full of great tips on shopping, time savers, going green, inspiration - including pics and stories from successful 'losers'! One of my favourites were the tension tamers - really quick stretches you can do at your desk to relieve stressed muscles. Another great idea are the fidget-cizers. Exercise while waiting for the kettle to boil, the toast to pop or firm your butt while talking on the phone!

I really liked this book. I've chosen to go at my own rate - and I thinks that's the beauty of it. There is so much great information included you can't help succeeding - whatever pace you set. I'm looking to get moving more and 12 minutes is soooo doable!

The book itself is well laid out and easy to read. The pictures of the different exercises are clear and easy to follow. It's in a weekly order, with everything you need for each day - meals and exercises. What's nice? The work is all done for you - all you need to do is follow along.

Started the daily dozen 4 weeks ago. My husband has reached his weight loss goal of 12 pounds in those 4 weeks. I have lost 10 lbs, within that time. I am not one to lose weight easily, so I am impressed with the eating plan. There are some great recipes in this book. We love the veggie quesadilla and fish tacos! The back of the book has easy to use shopping lists by the week. Take a look at the easy recipes in the back of the book once you are past week 3. LOVE the grilled artichokes with lemon vinegarette. We both feel we never went hungary and the easy to follow menus were excellent. One reviewer mentioned the shopping lists/menus had difficult to find items. I didn't find this true, you are going to purchase lean meats, high fiber whole grains, and numerous fruits and veggies. Oh, and nonfat cottage cheese, vanilla non fat yogurt and greek yogurt. Not difficulut to find at my local markets. My only caveat would be if you constantly eat out, be prepared to give that up. You are making your own meals and snacks, and there aren't a ton of suggestions for substitutions to make while dining out. Nothing crazy here, just common sense eating of lean protein, fruits, veggies, healthy fat and whole grains with an easy to follow exercise plan.

Losing weight, getting in shape, and being healthier overall, are common New Year's resolutions. Helping you to keep those resolutions is Denise Austin in her new book Denise's Daily Dozen. Denise Austin, a 52 year old (can you believe it!) fitness trainer with nearly thirty years experience, is a personal inspiration of what a healthy diet and regular exercise can do for you.

Denise's Daily Dozen is comprised of a Fitness Plan and an Eating Plan. The Fitness Plan includes a workout with three essential elements: "cardiovascular, toning, and flexibility in twelve easy moves you do for twelve minutes a day." Like most fitness trainers, however, Denise acknowledges that you should ultimately work up to thirty minutes a day. Still, according to Denise, on your busiest days the twelve minutes are enough. In addition to the Daily Dozen workouts, Denise prescribes twelve miles of cardio exercise weekly. Walking counts as fulfilling this requirement. The Eating Plan is basically a 1200 calorie a day meal plan that includes three servings each of veggies, fruits, and proteins with two of healthy grains and one of a healthy fat.

While much of the information, limit calories to around 1200 a day and perform 30 minutes of cardio day, is not new, it is put together in a user friendly format. With lots of pictures of the exercises and specific instructions (exercises and meal plans) for each day of the week, it is easy to follow. I also enjoyed the real life stories from women who lost weight following Denise's plan. Also helpful is the chapter "Twelve Meals You Can Make in About Twelve Minutes" because who isn't pressed for time? And lastly the weekly shopping lists promote quick and efficient shopping in that dieter's temptation den known as the grocery store.
