I'm not overweight, but I want to improve my body composition. I've done a lot of research on the subject and I have come to the conclusion that the secret to reducing body fat is that there is no secret. The only way to do it in a healthy, safe, sustainable way is through proper diet & exercise. Before reading this book, I had two problems with my existing fitness regimen: (1) with regards to diet, I was eating nonfat foods and keeping within my calorie range, but I was eating too many carbs at the expense of not ingesting enough protein. I am much more focused now on eating nutritionally balanced meals. (2) I *love* cardio exercise, and would happily do step aerobics & cardio kickboxing exclusively. After reading Phil Goglia's book, it finally clicked that for my body type, I should be eating adding weight training to my exercise routine. The results have been great. I also like his theories on water consumption. I am drinking a heck of a lot more water than I used. I've cut out juice (I'd rather eat a piece of fruit) and aside from water, the only other liquid I drink regularly is milk (and chocolate milk at that!). At first I was worried that I may be drinking too much water, but my doctor assures me that a person can safely drink up to 3.5 gallons of water a day (~10L) without becoming ill. There have been reports of people becoming overhydrated and developing water toxicity, but those usually apply to people who either drink too much at one sitting (instead of spreading it out throughout the day) or drink tons of water and don't eat. Note that some people say it's better to drink bottled spring water as opposed to only distilled water... I'm not sure if it's true but it's worth checking out.Read more ›

Here it is short and simple...I never dieted my whole life. I have now reached that over 45 age and experienced some shocking changes. OK, I figured I would starve myself for awhile, etc. etc. Result? I got fatter. My husband brought me this book and my first instinct was to toss it out, but he made me promise I would read it. Here I am thirteen weeks later and two sizes smaller. I have not been hungry one day. I believe so much in this program that I encouraged my sister to buy the book and to talk to our Aunt who is almost 80 yrs old and obese. After 10 weeks my sister lost 30 lbs and 4inches around her thighs. My Aunt lost 20 lbs after just 9 weeks. She actually walked a flight of stairs that she hasn't done in years. Her doctor is ecstatic! They are both sticking to it and said it is really easy to follow this program. I won't get into all the lab results, but for example my ratio went from 3.5 to 2.7! The best thing about this program is that I feed my family everything I eat! No special grocery lists that gets so expensive. We all like the change in our nutrition. This is a realistic way of eating and exercising. This is a change of life that is attainable for anyone. Also, I have called Phillip to ask questions...he actually called me back! He is great! He really listened and helped me. Thanks, Phillip! You will be hearing from my mother and father-in-law soon!

Philip Goglia changed my life...he SAVED my life! I have struggled with my weight my entire life; I hit the 180's in middle school, by my freshman year of high school, I'd pushed up to 200lbs. I have tried hundreds [probably thousands] of approaches to weight loss, nothing worked (at least not for long), then I found "Turn Up The Heat" and Philip Goglia! I read the book, and as we all are at the threshold of a new diet i was filled with myriad emotions...hope, disbelief, intrigue...but I was hooked by one thing; Philip takes a scientific approach, a BIOLOGICAL approach to the body--his plan was like nothing I had seen before in the diet world [but have seen copycatted many times since--make no mistake--accept no substitutions...if you want the real-deal on metabolic weight loss, look up Philip Goglia...anyone else is just a second-rate knock off!] I followed Philip's instructions, I had a lipid profile done, I did the calculations, found my metabolic type, and began his 12-week initial program...that saying, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life"...that had never meant anything to me, now it does. "Turn Up the Heat" puts forth a plan that is so simple, so comprehensible, and so easy to follow [eating real food, and more of it than I had ever eaten on a diet, or even off a diet]...if you follow Philip's plan, if you stick to it and don't cheat, you too will change your life; change it FOREVER. At the end of my first 12 weeks i had transformed from a weak, constantly exhausted 5'7" 220lb trying-to-fade-into-the-background shapeless blob; into a 5'8"[my posture is THAT much better!] lean 160lbs. I LOOK 10 years younger [I'm 38], I FEEL 20 years younger! I've kept the weight off [and continued leaning down...Read more ›

When I started on Phil Goglia's plan, I weighed 137 pounds and stood 5 feet tall. That's alot of extra fat to carry around! My cholesterol was 303 and my tryglycerides were 333! That is an unbelievable number to me now.After being on the program from April until June, my cholesterol had dropped to 260 and my tryglycerides were down to l43. I've lost 25 pounds! Now I'm at 110 and my cholesterol is 236 and dropping! I have recommended his program to other people who have said to me..."You look terrific. What have you done?" Anyone who wants to be healthy and fit had better get on this program because I've tried all sorts of other diets and they didn't work. I've been on lipitor and now I'm medicine free! My nails have grown long and strong and I feel better than I've felt in a long, long, time. I wouldn't go off this program for anything. Drink the amount of water he says to drink, cut your sugar down to 3 grams or less a serving, and follow the rest of the plan and you will see the same results that I saw. I love this program! Thanks, Phil, for giving me something that finally worked and got me off that expensive and dangerous cholesterol medication.
