Written with self-deprecating humor and a clear, up-beat style, Jumpstart Your Metabolism takes the reader on a journey through many breathing-related issues, all designed to enhance breath awareness and restore healthy breathing. Her text elaborates on the key fact that by breathing deeply and increasing oxygen intake, the body burns hydrogen--the key culprit in storing excess fat--faster and more efficiently. Grout's daily maintenance program includes three core breathing exercises ("Baywatch Bikini Breaths," "Kung Fu Breaths," and "Walk Around the Block with Your Mouth Full of Water"). Also included are a bibliography on books about breath and breathing, a short quiz to ascertain the degree of your breathing problem, a chapter on the mechanics of breathing, and information-stocked sidebars that serve as enthusiastic breathing coaches.

The benefit? The weight is literally falling off. Although I am dieting, I am doing the same diet as pre-Pam. Before I read this book, I could not lose ANY weight, no matter how "good" I was. Now, doing the same diet, I have been losing 2-3 pounds per week, and without much exercise. I've lost over 20 lbs, and have about 25 more to go, and am confident I will reach that goal very soon. I'm almost worried that I'm losing too fast! You must try this book if you are sick of dieting without results!
