Editorial Reviews

Review

“I love this book. Diet books aren’t supposed to be page-turners, but this is. Diet and health books aren’t supposed to make you laugh or cry, but you will. You will also learn how Ted found his motivation, and how he can help you, too. I love it.”
—Michael F. Roizen, MD, co-author of the YOU: The Owner’s Manual series
 
“Finally! A perspective on the most important part of fitness and weight loss: the part that occurs between in the ears! Down Size marries the mind-body processes that we all must confront in our health and wellness journey.  This is the book you need to read if you have ever or will ever do anything requiring physical AND mental commitment. Inspiring, informative and insightful!”
—Jennifer L. Ashton, MD, author of Your Body Beautiful
 
“I always wished someone would write this book. Ted Spiker will help change your body in simple, realistic, and effective ways you wish you would have known about sooner.”
—Adam Bornstein, author of Man 2.0 Engineering the Alpha
 
“If health and diet writing is a vast wilderness -- and take it from me, it is -- then Ted Spiker is the best guide you could ask for. Using his 12 hard-learned truths as signposts, Ted hacks through dense jargon, steers us clear of hype, and keeps us amused along the way. Best of all, snacking is encouraged.”
—Mark Remy, author of The Runner's Rule Book
 
“Ted Spiker is a guy you'll want to have on your team, whether it's tug-of-war, Tough Mudder, or just trying to make sense of the ‘tips and tricks’ that weigh us down when we're trying to live a simpler, but healthier life. In Down Size, Ted shares his vulnerable, hilarious, and ultimately insightful experience on taking the scale -- and himself -- head on. And he will inspire you to do the same.”
—James Beckerman, MD, author of The Flex Diet
