This book was not what I expected. Inside the covers of this book you will find some of the most cutting edge exercise and nutritional science out there - calibrated specifically for female fat loss - including stubborn fat. I can see three groups of people who would benefit from this book. 1) Trainers who would like to help their clients lose fat as quickly as possible, as well as troubleshoot stubborn cases, and eliminate stubborn fat deposits that otherwise will not budge on otherwise lean women. 2) Any woman who is proactive and action oriented regarding her own fitness and health. This book has everything you need to lose fat the right way. 3) Any peri-menopausal, menopausal, and post menopausal struggling to adjust to the changes in her body. This book has scientific and fact based answers to your problems that you will not find in other books. Everything is simple and easy, and most solutions are exercise, nutrition or lifestyle based.
Are supplements hyped? A little but not in a high pressure or exaggerated way. I think you get the clear sense from the authors that they are using a logical system of elimination. Most people will lose fat following the diet and exercise suggestions alone. Those who need extra help get additional tools to help them.Read more ›
Among all the fat loss books and exercise programs out there this book is a stand out.
It can change your life in regards to the way you approach fat loss, nutrition, and exercise.
The book is a well written, comprehensive, and easy to understand. No fads, no gimmicks, just solidly researched, fact based information that really works.
The nutrition and hormone information is excellent and the workout plan is well designed, safe, and progressive. It will give you the real results you desire and the knowledge that will empower you to maintain the gains you have made.
One of the other things I love about this book is that not only does it contain a treasure trove of great information, but it also helps dispel the counterproductive misinformation that is constantly being put out there in regards to training, nutrition, and fat loss, information that is more often than not counterproductive and at times even harmful.
If all of my clients would read this book, especially the female fat loss clients, my job
would be much easier.
Even if you are currently working with a trainer, and especially if you are not, do yourself a favor and buy this book.
Knowledge is power.
In comes 'Ultimate You', I went gung ho and bought all the supplements and followed eating guidelines and exercise as strictly as I could. By the third week I had dropped a pant size and inches everywhere, not to mention sleeping better, increased energy (crazy good energy) and gaining strength everywhere. By the fourth month I had dropped over 30lbs (back into 9/10 pants from 18), was the strongest I had ever been, had abounding energy; I could move!!! My spinal specialist was very impressed with my gained mobility, and regular Dr. was happy that my BMI was at a great level. I can't promote this book enough. The lessons and science about food and hormones have stayed with me, and I feel I have a greater knowledge of how to eat correctly. I honestly feel, if it weren't for this book teaching me and guiding me, I would still be suffering.
