Finally, you can lose the weight you always wanted to...but not really weight, but FAT! That's what you want to get rid of. This book tells you how to do it and do it for life!

From the Author

Talks about what all was learned through working with the many contestants on "The Biggest Loser" and I found it all very helpful.

I read a library version of this book and I am going to buy my own copy so I can easily refer to it over and over.

Unlike many gimmicky and fad diets out there, this is a plan rooted in how our bodies are actually wired to be healthy. With an empasis on getting healthy instead of losing pounds, the end result is incredible transformation with a new lease on life and a maintainable weight loss! I was one of the Season 3 Biggest Loser at home contestants who had nothing but Dr. Huizenga's WOW Prescription to reach my ideal weight; no trainers, no gym equipment, no fairy tale weight loss ranch. I followed his advice and guidance to the letter and over the course of eight months I lost 176 pounds (see my transformation at [...] I've read his book and am overwhelmed at how he has successfully captured on paper the plan that has helped five seasons (and counting) of Biggest Loser contestants lose the weight - and it can be done all at home, like I and 35 others demonstrated in season three with the at home competition! Unlike many weight loss books, Huizenga has woven the stories of the 36 at home participants through out the book, using our examples, questions and experiences to illustrate how to implement his plan. Rather than just tell the reader what to do, he demonstrates that it is possible in the real world. Not only that, it makes for an enjoyable read! Besides giving a behind the scenes look at how the contestants actually lose the weight at such a dramatic pace on the Biggest Loser Ranch, he communicates a sense of hope and possibility that many of us have lost sight of. Without a doubt, there is someone in the book that each reader can identify with and find an inspiration with. I absolutely recommened this book; it has literally saved my life.

My name is Mark Monaco, and I agree with everything Matthew said. I was an 36 at home contestant along with Matthew. I represented Montana. Prior to The Biggest Loser, I tried almost EVERTHING!! This book IS The Biggest Loser. It is exactly what Dr.H taught us. There are no gimmicks here, just common sense, hard work, and consistency. Add up four or five of those 16 oz. Lattes and you have the cost of the book. What do you have to lose ;0)

This book could change your life if you let it. To a certain degree, it reminds me of those P90x or Insanity commercials. The premise being, "If you dedicate yourself to this program, it will work." The only way you can fail is by giving up. Your future is in your hands.

This book is broken down into two major segments. The first half of the book is history, plan, and workouts. You first learn what you are doing and why are doing it. The second half of the book is an inspirational journal for your journey. You read the first half before you start, and the second half as you go.

The plan itself is rather simple. You work out for 2 hours a day, six days a week. To be more specific, he instructs you to do jogging (walking if needed) in the morning for an hour each morning. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday you will do weight training in the evening alongside of more cardio. On Tuesday and Thursday nights, you should get involved in a sports activity. On Saturday, you should have a family type outing, like hiking, bike riding, etc. The outing should last a minimum of 2-3 hours.

On top of the heavy workout schedule, you need to eat right. Eating is a huge part of weight loss, even if you are working out 2 hours a day. He has a formula to calculate your calories, but it is about 80%-100% of your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR).

So what happens if you follow this program? I lost 7.2 pounds the first week, while being injured. As a result of my foot injury, I did a lot of upper body workouts and biking. I am getting back to full body workouts, so I should burn more calories. I plan to beat the 7.2 pounds this week. I'll update this review to let you know my progress. I started at 288 and am now 281 a week into the program.

GOOD:
Oct 2008 weight watchers was getting me nowhere. I felt like I wasn't eating enough. Watching biggest looser, I saw they were wearing something. It was the BodyBugg. Bought it to try. Well, I started at 275, and lost a little more than two pounds a week, and got down to 225 in just about 25 weeks. AMAZING. But, then I HIT THE WALL. Only 1 or so in a month. Frustated,I hit the message boards. Someone said, look at this book "Where did the all the fat go". So, still needing to loose 35-45 more pounds. I needed answers. This book has amazing insight to the origins of the show, and puts to bed many weight loss myths. My problem? I was exercising too much. (I had gotten to be the fuel efficient car on the highway so I wasn't burning enough) The book had tips on that. And what I think I just found as a BIG BIG issue for me. Not enough salt. Now, most people may have too much salt. Especially if they are obese like I was. But, with the amount of exercise, sweat, and water I am drinking. Plus south florida heat and humidity. I did not have the right salt intake. AND THAT can make you KEEP WEIGHT on.
BAD: The only downside to the book is that it's a little outdated. It is pre "bodybugg" so the effort to journal, and write down and calculate all the calories is a labor intensive part of the book that is not needed today.
FUTURE: I'd love to see an updated version of the book with the knowledge the good doctor has gained since he wrote it, and with the "bugg" tracking.
