1. The elephant in the room.
I kept reading the book and felt a huge omission. The authors ideally summarize various methods to lose weight. Yet, they very painstakingly avoid the topic of motivation.
No amount of tips and advice have ever helped anyone to lose weight ... unless they decide to apply this knowledge.
If your attitude toward weight loss stinks, you may read this whole book and do absolutely nothing to lose weight.
On the other hand, I understand the authors. It's one thing to provide concrete steps to deal with your diet, exercise, or schedule. It's a totally different game when you try to teach people to modify their mindset.
One topic is tangible and practical. The other is as practical, I assure you. But it's very hard to convey this kind of advice on book pages. It’s much easier to pretend there is no elephant in the room.
And the authors allude to mindset at the very beginning, telling their own stories and how they decided to do something about their weight.
BTW, a good book about weight-loss mindset for guys is Never Binge Again.
2. Not enough about accountability.
I think—I'm not sure—that advantages of accountability are briefly mentioned in the book. That's not enough. Your chances for success skyrocket if you involve others in your weight-loss quest. People are primarily motivated by other people. Having an accountability partner helps you to stick with your goal for the long haul. This omission was especially disappointing since Scott wrote the whole book about accountability.
Having a coach or mentor who has been there and done that is even better. Anybody who has successfully lost weight has four times greater of a chance to help you lose weight than a certified personal trainer does. They don't just have knowledge—they have the experience. Imprinting their experience makes the process effective. You can gain knowledge and still do nothing. When you absorb the experience from someone else, you feel compelled to take action. Humans are wired that way.
Avoiding this wiring is the second big omission of this book.
As I said, the biggest drawbacks of Weight Loss Mastery are things not included in the book, not the content itself. It's great on so many levels. Let's talk about the greatness.
1. Nitty-gritty details.
This is the trademark of Scott's books. He is a master of breaking things down to their basic level. You will find long lists of all kinds—foods and their nutritional benefits, how to prepare your meals, how to exercise. And I mean LONG! Very rarely will you find less than five points about anything.
It's not the sheer amount of content. It's divided into manageable parts, and the flow makes sense. You will go from one extremely detailed area to another without confusion or without feeling overwhelmed.
I lost 15% of my body weight seven years ago, and I've kept it at the optimal level since then. I do know quite a lot about weight loss. Yet, I still learned a few new things from Weight Loss Mastery. On the list of 37 fat-burning foods are several I hadn't even heard of.
Both authors have experience in weight loss, and it shines through the pages. This gives you, the reader, a lot of hope—they have been there and done that. They have four times greater of a chance to teach you something than a certified personal trainer who never went through the process of weight loss himself. We rub off experience, not just knowledge, from other people.
It's also encouraging that their weight-loss journeys were quite different. SJ needed to lose some flabby stomach. Jonathan was downright obese. Their approaches are mixed, however; in weight loss, all effective methods are universal. Usually, what helps you to shave off 10 pounds will help you to lose another 100 as well.
4. Personal stories.
I laughed out loud reading how SJ's son motivated him to lose weight. There are lots of personal tidbits and stories smuggled into the book. I loved it. I’d say this is the main advantage of self-publishing: You get the real-life stories, not a processed pulp curated by a publisher who wants to make everything politically correct to make everybody happy.
I’m not saying the authors aren't politically correct; nonetheless, their content isn't as bland as big publishers' stuff.
5. The main benefit.
Weight Loss Mastery robs you of excuses. If you read the whole book, you cannot honestly say you can’t lose weight. SJ and Jonathan dissect the whole process to the tiniest detail: what to eat; how to prepare your meals; when to sprinkle your weight-loss activities over your days and weeks; or when, how often, and how to exercise.
So, maybe the book is not without the motivation element after all? When you get everything delivered on a silver platter, your excuses are exposed and you may discover how full of BS your own mind is in this regard. Once you face the truth, you have no other way out but to change.
Well, I guess you may also give this book a 1-star review to reinforce your current mindset and avoid the cognitive dissonance. : /
If you want to change, embracing new habits is the most reliable way known to science. The authors of Weight Loss Mastery do an excellent job of breaking down various aspects of weight loss into the smallest components possible. Everything they teach is in the end so tiny that it can be converted into a daily habit relatively easy.
I do recommend this book. I used plenty of tips and techniques from it to lose 15% of my body weight and to keep my weight under control for the past 6.5 years. This is solid stuff. It works.
Of course, it works when you apply it, not just read about it. But as I said—SJ and Jonathan provide the right strategy and point out exactly which small habits you need to embrace to succeed.
Your goal will be to burn 500 calories more than you eat every single day.
You will discover five actionable habits you can use to lose a drastic amount of weight and keep it off
Perhaps you can’t get your body back to how it looked in high school. Maybe your body has never looked the way you wanted it to, but you know you need to make that change. Or you might simply want to take part in activities with your friends and family, but the extra weight is holding you back. If that is the case, Weight Loss Mastery is for you.
This book is filled with lots of references to case studies and deep research that the authors conducted in order to bring you the best book on dieting there is.
By reading this book, here is the BIG PROMISE Scott and Jonathan are making:
"Instead of being embarrassed by your body, you’re going to be proud and excited by it. Instead of thinking that the people who take pictures of themselves in swimsuits and post them on social media are tacky, you’re going to turn into one of them. You’re going to love the amazing improvements in your love life. You’re going to be able to experience more pleasure, more passion, and deeper and more meaningful love with your partner than ever before."
