Book Description

Many experts agree that a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet should be an effective way to gain control of weight problems. But statistics show that though we are consuming less fat, Americans are actually becoming fatter, not "fitter." Ted Broer challenges traditional thinking and offers a healthy alternative that reveals new findings in biochemistry. Maximum Fat Loss shows readers why high-carb/low-fat diets don't work-and what does. Readers will learn how to maintain muscle mass and increase their metabolism while losing body fat. They'll discover why carbohydrates increase body fat, how hormones control weight loss and gain, genetic predisposition for fat gain, what foods to eat and what foods to avoid, what supplements produce healthy results, and much, much more. Maximum Fat Loss takes advantage of the latest research to bring a better solution to the problem of weight gain.

Editorial Reviews Review

"Consider fat to be Enemy Number One," proclaims exercise physiologist, biochemist, and nutritionist Ted Broer. "I don't care how you attempt to justify your excess fat to me, I won't buy your argument." Broer, who claims to have the fat-loss program that works for "virtually all people" and "for a lifetime," wants to reintroduce words like gluttony, self-indulgence, and sloth to our vocabulary. Don't look for any fat acceptance from this guy!

You'll find most of Broer's "12 Vital Keys to Maximum Fat Loss" in other weight-loss plans, such as "Set realistic goals and motivating rewards" and "Take in sufficient fiber every day." Directions you won't find elsewhere include eating six meals each day totaling no more than 10 times your ideal body weight in calories, doing 25 minutes of aerobic exercise first thing in the morning before eating, and taking fat-fighting supplements daily.

Broer, a motivational speaker, will rev you up to make changes. He wants you to count calories at first because most people have no idea how many calories they're eating. He recommends increasing low-fat protein and avoiding high-glycemic-index carbohydrates (foods that turn to sugar quickly, like wheat products and white rice). Get rid of all junk food and everything containing sugar. Eat no pork, shellfish, high-fat dairy, processed flour, margarine, cheese, fried foods, aspartame, or pizza ("the number one reason we have so many fat children and teens").

Broer admits that no supplements will help if you don't change your diet and exercise, but he still offers his "top 10 fat-loss supplements" and additional recommendations of supplements and herbs, including ephedrine, which has been cited as the cause of death in several widely publicized cases. Although he admits that ephedrine can be so dangerous that it is banned in several states, he tells readers how to get around the ban--which strikes this reviewer as unscrupulous and dangerous advice. By the way, don't fall for the "5 secret supplements that melt body fat" mentioned on the cover--there are no such miracles. --Joan Price

5.0 out of 5 stars Maximum Life Enjoyment July 2, 2001
Maximum Fat Loss is a great book for those who want to lose fat, but there's alot more to it than that. Dr. Broer gives good advice on the foods we should be eating and the foods we should avoid. He also covers exercise programs and nutritional supplements.
I can tell you from personal experience that his advice works. Since reading this book and putting his recommendations into effect, I have lost 25 pounds. I have given up soft drinks (regular and diet), most sugar products and simple carbohydrates. The effects have been dramatic.
Just so that people don't think I'm on Mr. Broer's payroll, I do have one (minor) criticism. As other reviewers have noted, he does tend to pitch his other products on a regular basis. It got to the point that I began anticipating (not eagerly) the next product pitch. It's unfortunate, because it detracts from the quality of the information. But please, for your sake, overlook this problem and read the book anyway. His advice is right on the money.
A final word about the title. A more accurate title would have been: Maximum Life Enjoyment. This book is about so much more than just losing fat. By following the advice in this book, you'll feel much better, have more energy and really enjoy life.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT "LIFE SAVING" INFORMATION May 16, 2001
If you want to really lose weight and increase your energy, buy this book. I went from a 33 waist to 30/31 in about 2-3 months. I now have more energy than I did as a teenager, it's great. I no longer get migraines, which I used to get every week. I don't know Dr. Broer from Adam, but I know one thing. His information and research has helped my family be and stay fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading - A Complete and Thorough Book February 27, 2001
By A Customer
Maximum Fat Loss is easy to read and interesting. Ted Broer deals with the dangers of being overfat and the excuses that people tell themsleves about their eating habits and excess fat. You will see yourself and the people you know. He also shows you how you can be successful in losing fat and be healthy at the same time. If you have been concerned about aspartame, you will not drink diet soda again after reading his chapter on it. You will also understand how we are all eating too much sugar and carbs. A lifetime eating and exercise plan is revealed. The lifestyle changes are very doable.
