In fact, I am one of the many people who encouraged him to write this book.
As a 50 year old woman, I was finding it hard to lose the weight I had gained over the years.
I could tell my metabolism was slower and the extra weight was causing me to start feeling pain in my knees and back.
I tried some other popular advertised weight loss plans. I would lose a few pounds, start to feel good about myself but then suddenly gain the weight back.
Mike's diet and exercise information along with another book Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress is what finally worked for me.
My girlfriend from college days was in the same shape as me. She also followed this same plan and we both lost 40 pounds between July and December.
We are not just lighter but feel more toned and clothes shopping Is exciting again.
Being a woman in my mid-40's, a former athlete and police officer, I know the value of fitness. I also know what it means to be fit versus just looking good. It's always a two-fold proposition: exercise AND dietary changes, to get stronger and healthier, at any age.
This is what the author is advocating, and it has worked for him, and many, many others to get fit. It's not an overnight 'fix', but rather a well-written book that explains a lot of fitness-related details and discusses how they fit into your overall health. The Glycemic Index and flexibility as it relates to mobility, were particularly good inclusions in this book.
With this book you get both a realistic, healthy eating plan and a way to get started with resistance and cardio training. Exercises for specific body parts are illustrated by photos of the author doing them. Training at home and in the gym are addressed, so no one is left out. All good, solid, accurate information delivered in an easy-to-follow way.
At the end of the book 'Odds and Ends" include Female Hormone Instability, Cholesterol Control, Better Sleep and more!
I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest review. Both my husband who is in his 70's (and has worked out almost daily for 50 years), and I have read this book and we have both found it to be very helpful and well done.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking a guide to 'how-to' for older folks, but truly it's much more than that as it offers exercise and diet related information with lots of age-related tips and guidance. Michael is very knowledgeable and in this book, it shows!
