Even as a Nutritionist/Personal Trainer myself, I am learning from this book.

It puts a unique twist on the subject of health. But the main reason I love it is because it is hilarious. The pictures are appropriately funny too. That means you will probably like it more than some dry health manual.

I recommend this book as a bathroom reader or coffee table book for a friend or loved one, or for yourself.

I guarantee this book help you to change some health habits for the better. Maybe a lot of habits!

Did I mention it is funny?

From the title, what I mean is that, its awesome, I wish I'd read it when I was 18-20, because it eradicates tons of mental cognitive lies I told myself back then.

But, at least for me, back then, I was too stubborn to accept a lot of things in the book, e.g. that Ryan is vegan and discusses the pros of being vegan, and I may very well have thought "This guy is a crazy vegetarian, he wants the world to all be vegetarians, I should probably ignore most of what's in this book" and then conveniently forgot to read it.

Well, I hope you don't do that. Haha. Anyway...yeah, read it, and do it, too.

I guess Ryan's approach was to go backwards. Instead of talking about "the right things" to be doing, he focused on "the wrong things" that people actually are doing. I guess he called them "Fattitudes", fat people attitudes.

I'm an ex-fatty. I used to weigh around 250lbs, back in 2005 or so. For the most part now I'm "normally" 170lbs. I'd gone through a lot of "phases" of fat loss, including getting "extremely lean" twice in my life, the first time, by using Hydroxycut, some OTC drug that reduces your hunger and increases your metabolism, and when I used em, made my farts smell super weird. (TMI? lol) But it "worked" while I was using em, and then I enjoyed the leanness I got by getting drunk and taking my shirt off all the time, which I guess is funny to me now, except this behavior got me a bit fatter again (not like problematic fat, just "not very lean" fat, or somewhat skinny-fat). That was probably around 2007.

Then, in 2011, I decided that I'd really get my body fat percent down low (AKA get lean), and I knew about this company called Precision Nutrition who has this year-long online coaching program called <a href="[...

I highly recommend this book!

I'm about half way through it, and it's incredibly well written (plenty of good humor in it as well) and is packed with tons of nutrition and stats. Ryan presents the information in a way that's not too technical, so it's easy to comprehend. This book is quite compelling and thought provoking. The introduction alone made me re-think how I view food - from the types of food I eat to how I buy them as well. It's quite the eye-opener, and it also has me seriously contemplating switching to a plant based diet!

If everyone read this book and followed even a portion of what Ryan recommends, we would have a much healthier society and the world would be a better place.

Thank you Ryan for writing such an inspiring and insightful book!

[[VIDEOID:mo3R4WM746XV15B]]This is a quick video review of Drop the Fat Act & Live Lean by Ryan Andrews.

If you really spend one to two days (1 week if you have kids and run a business) to read the book and the next couple of months applying the principals outlined in the book, you will be walking around with a nice set of abs and your health will soar through the roof. On the other hand, if you just read the book, grab a bag of cookies or chips, turn on Desperate Housewives and don't apply what Ryan shares in the book, you will not have abs and be healthy. You will continue to spend $1000s looking for the quick fat lass/fat burning pill. The book is a fun approach to getting in shape, better health and dropping excess fat. I have benefitted tremendously from Ryan's knowledge and coaching ( I walk around with sub 10% body fat) and highly recommend his book. The knowledge contained in this book is worth $1000s of dollars. This book is better than having your own nutritionist and trainer in your house. Just buy the book. Trust me.

Format: Paperback
Author Ryan Andrews' gives us a great common-sense, truthful, funny approach to diet and exercise peppered with anecdotes from his experience as a fitness coach. Most people probably feel they have heard it all about diet and exercise but the contrast between fat and lean behaviors gives a blueprint for how to live and stay lean. He means you drop the excuses and don't take the low road of self-pity and perceived deprivation. I've read many nutrition books, and yet still learned more from this book - namely the amount of protein in ordinary vegetables (I didn't know that spinach had 39% protein!). Even if you already live lean, the book is a good reinforcement for all the right things you do, and the cartoons will keep you smiling! If you are looking to regain your health, it is one of the easiest guides to use.

One of the best books I have been reading so far on nutrition and behavioral reasons of being overweight. Stop the diet fad and read this book. Great humor and cartoons underline the serious issue of overeating etc.

Great content, great read, hope to be able to hear more from Ryan Andrews....
