Where other books on "dieting/exercise" will instantaneously delve into the epicentre of their plan this one begins with a mental makeover of sorts. The author attempts to have the reader appreciate one's body more than he/she already does. She advises to look at a selection of nudes (of varying body types) and to perform a weekly exercise ritual in the buff (ie. sleeping and eating etc.) to appreciate the banality of the human body - its curves, shadows, how it simply exists, and all of its functions. Even BDD (body dysmorphic disorder) is addressed. A healthy mindset is promoted from the get go.

Next, there is an optional two-day cleanse then a diet plan for the next six weeks. It is built to total 1.400 calories/day and includes: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks. The meals are focused around 20 power foods: avocados, beef, bell peppers, berries, black beans, Brussels sprouts, cheese, chicken breast, dried fruit, eggs, flaxseed, hummus, milk, nuts/nut butters, olives/extra-virgin olive oil, salmon, tofu, tuna, whole grains, and yoghurt. The meals include various combinations of the list with the occasional added ingredient. There is also a list of recommended added spices and low-calories condiments like mango salsa. Splurging is allowed once in three weeks (twice over the program). A signature cocktail is also included for going out.

Following food is the section on fitness. The regime consists of two weekly metabolic work-outs and two strength training sessions. There is also an optional "do-anything" day from pilates to gardening. There is a ten minute warm-up before the pages of exercise. The strength training features 15 reps with 4 pound weights and lasts under 30 minutes. Weeks 4-6 the reps drop to 8 but the weights also increase to 8 pounds.

I'm a stay at home mom of two little ones, ages 5 and 3. I was looking for something to help me get in shape and also gain healthier eating habits. I was convinced enough by previous reviews of this book that it had what I was looking for and boy was I right! While much of the book is geared toward being comfortable in your own body not just physically but mentally I didn't feel I'd learned anything new, however I have pretty good self esteem and never minded my mommy tummy or thick thighs much. So if you're more insecure about your figure be it large or small it has some wonderful thoughts and tips to get you to a healthier self view.
As for the diet portion of the book...I didn't want a "diet" as in, you can't eat these things..... and this book is the complete opposite, it's very positive and encourages you to splurge here and there on tasty things, (this includes cheese! something I could never ever give up entirely) but the meal plans provided also fill you up so you're not left feeling hungry and tempted to eat something you don't need (aka, gold fish crackers, in my case). I have loved every meal I've yet to try, almost a weeks worth at this point. and look forward to trying the other new things. I'm not much of a cook by nature so it's been really fun to have tasty healthy meals and snacks that fill me up and give me energy and did I mention that they are super tasty? My husband has been eating the same foods with me and he's enjoying them as well.
Ok, now to the physical end of it. first off, they start you out with a two day cleanse, I lost two lbs., 1 a day. then you start working out after that.

As a fitness professional, I was SO happy to find that this book addresses components to compliment a good exercise plan! It's a book I would recommend to all of my female clients! Attitude, exercise, nutrition, beauty play an intrinsic role in looking better and feeling more confident.
I specifically love the exercises chosen to be included in the book! They're great ones.

Into week 1 of workout (inital review).

I am 5'6", 150lbs (not at all over weight but I NEVER exercise). My goal is to lose a few pounds and tone up.

Meals:
The 2 day cleanse was very challenging. You are limited to 2 tsp olive oil + balsamic vinegar and herbs. I though I could do chicken and salad greens for lunch/dinner for 2 days but by day 2 I was disgusted by the thought of more plain chicken.

My suggestion is to save half of your snack for dinner (who wants to eat a whole cup of cucumbers anyway?) and vary the protein.
Day 2 I went for salmon and asparagus (and incorporated "bonus" items into my meal; little greek yogurt and dijon).

I did indeed lose 2 lbs just on the cleanse (no exercise). But I was very cranky and kind of weak.

The meal plan is great in my opinion. It incorporated different foods to ensure you get the nutrition you need (and maybe to keep it interesting).

Cons:
1. It is expensive to buy so many differnt items, esp if you are cooking for one.
2. You need to get creative. There are no recipes. It simply tells you the protein and vegetable to eat for that meal. Having some basic recipes (like vinegrettes or marinades would be a big help).
3. Because there are so many different meals, you grocery list gets large and its difficult to know how much of each item you need each week. It would have been great if there were grocery lists for each week (online to print esp).

Exercise:
Workout A pratically scared me away. For someone who never exercises (and Im not over weight), it was EXTREMLY tough. The "warm up" was a workout for me! I was spent at half the reps the book recommends. So for week one, that was my max. After day 1, my legs were sore. SO SORE.
