Ryan has created a very easy to read and inspiring book.

In fact, to anyone with a modicum of common sense about nutrition, the author's tone actually comes across as more than a little condescending.

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?

Unless you're incredibly clueless, you probably don't need a book to tell you that sitting on your couch all day washing down gallon cartons of Goldfish crackers with Mountain Dew will make you fat. That's pretty much what this book does, though with quite a bit of "humor" thrown in to fluff it up. In fact, to anyone with a modicum of common sense about nutrition, the author's tone actually comes across as more than a little condescending.

I originally heard of this book through the author's internet writings. Based on those, I thought this might be an interesting read with some new approaches to nutrition. It wasn't. Instead, the author gives a what-not-to-do laundry list of obvious behaviors that foster obesity. He approaches the subject matter with a mock seriousness that doesn't play very well in a self-improvement book. At times it even seems that the author is more interested in pointing out the absurdity of obesity than he is in enlightening the reader about creating a healthy lifestyle that truly works for them.

Color me unimpressed with "Fat Act." People who really want to make a serious change in their lives will do better with something a little more practical like Body for Life (and no, I'm not on Bill Phillips's payroll).

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!

An interesting take on nutrition and exercise - the best part is plenty of examples of practical application for the average person. Simple steps to form healthy new habits that really can change the way you look, and more importantly, the way you feel. A critical point here is that you can build habits that are sustainable - nothing "fad" based here.... You can make changes "for life" in every sense of the phrase.

As a trainer and nutrition coach I wasn't expecting this book to provide tons of insights for me, but overall a very well done book. I took one star off because of the vegan undertones throughout the book. I'd definitely recommend this book for those that are looking to make some physical changes in their life.
