After I read Joey's book, I knew I could finally get rid of all the other books and videos on my shelves. ``Fatness to Fitness'' is chockfull of practical advice for individuals at all fitness levels. The diet is easy to follow and you don't have to work up an appetite by traversing around town to find food that hails from the African rain forest. This book explains in simple terms the myths and misconceptions that often prevent people from reaching their fitness goals. Unlike most books, though, it doesn't leave you in the lurch about what to do next. Joey gives you all of the information you need to start improving your health today. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is tired of propaganda and ready for the real thing.
I've read many books on health, fitness and nutrition. Most of them are very similar and most of the material is repetitive. But - what Joey does is quite unique in that he weaves his personal story of ups and downs with actual real life examples he has experienced with the many clients he has worked with. He pulls this all together in a very simple format that answers the most critical questions that the general public has a hard time finding credible and actionable answers to.
Most of what is in Fatness to Fitness you will never read anywhere else. But - it's the kind of stuff that leads to those breakthrough moments for people who have been looking for 'an easier way' to be healthy and fit. For that reason alone I give this book a 5 star rating and my highest recommendation.
After reading my pre-release copy - I realized that this is something that will help everyone from pure fitness beginners - to veteran trainers and professional fitness instructors - something that Joey did not plan. It just turned out that way... Pretty cool stuff.
I've seen the time, energy and effort that Joey has put into this book - and all along it's been so evident that his main goal is to help as many people as possible achieve life-long fitness success. I think he's right on track to do exactly that.

This book will certainly change your mind. Give any of Joey's programs a try and you'll thank yourself for it.
This program would have been my last go at getting the weight off and keeping it off and now Fatness to Fitness to me IS #1 forever.
Order this book today, try his programs, and a longer and healthier life will be your reward.
The sections on myths and obstacles cleared up several topics for me that I've been struggling with for years. After being 'stuck' for the last couple of years - I was making progress again within just a few days of finishing this book.
This book will help many people, for sure. Aside from being a bit on the 'brief' side (I'm used to reading very long fitness books) - this has many ingredients of a best-seller. Once people get this in their hands - 'word of mouth' will spread like wild-fire.
Having served in the Navy (YN2) for over 8 years - one of the things I've learned is 'get the job done as efficiently as possible'. This book fits that requirement.
Now - as a working mom - I've realized that 'time' is the most precious resource in our 24 hour day. The free home exercise dvd that comes as part of the bonus package and support materials is perfect for exercising at home at the convenience of my schedule. I don't have the time or desire for the health club scene. Its amazing what you can do with no machines or barbells.
Oh - and my only regret is that I didn't know of Joey about 20 years ago when I was stressing out and killing myself to 'stay in shape'.
