From Publishers Weekly
Michaels, who gained recognition as a trainer on NBC's The Biggest Loser, pushes to get you in "the best shape of your life." Assuming you are already in fairly decent shape, if you have 20 or less pounds to shed and are willing to make the commitment, Michaels promises to have readers "feeling comfortable running in a bikini." Determining body fat percentage and taking a "fit test" is par for the course in this sort of book. What separates Michaels' program is that she bases the diet on whether a person is a "slow oxidizer, balanced oxidizer, or fast oxidizer." The idea is that slow oxidizers require more carbs, while fast oxidizers need higher percentages of protein. Michaels provides three different sets of menus and recipes (she claims that there is sound science behind this, but don't expect to see helpful footnotes quoting clinical studies). The majority of the book is list-like and not invigorating to read. A glut of trainer-driven fitness books seem to be hitting stands lately; this one only stands out if you accept her notion of oxidizing.

These workouts are fun and I lost 10lbs without really sticking to the meal plans, although there are some killer recipes in here. I'm mostly vegan and these meals are not. If you enjoy a solid ass kicking and don't mind taking a book to the gym this is the best out there! My husband even did the workouts with me and they kicked his ass! LOL!
Being someone who has been around the block a time or two in this realm of eating/lifting and such...I can sort of glean the direction I should go, without figuring out how to print the information out, because I'm a busy mom and already reading a ton of other books. So, I will go ahead and order the paperback and wait to take the quizzes to narrow all this down.
But, beware that on the E-book..it will be difficult. I am NOT knocking the book---she is super duper thorough, promotes organic, etc. I think it's a great guide for slimming down to get the cut body for maybe a trip or special occasion and such. I echo others that if you don't have a very small amount, it would definitely not the the book for you. You would already have to be in a high level of fitness shape, and have an understanding of how to eat this way to begin with.
