This book was very interesting and has given me a lot to think about. With so much in the news media these days about eating a plant-based diet rather than meat or dairy, I found it intriguing that this plan encourages women to eat low fat dairy and meat products. According to this book, I'm not eating enough protein (particularly before and after a workout). According to others, I'm eating too much. How do we know who to believe? It seems like everyone can site studies to support their claims. Even opposite claims.

Just a note-- as a 50 year old woman who already works out, I found some of these exercises difficult to complete. I'm wondering if I'm more out of shape than I thought or if these exercises are HARD. I plan to keep up with the workout routine for the 6 weeks and see what happens.

If you're looking to lose some weight and look more toned, this is it. But I warn you: The exercise routine is HARD. Quick, efficient, but HARD. You'll get results though.

The food portion is not a restricted "diet". It's a pretty lenient protocol with lots of variety and it's all explained in a really easy to understand way. It's basis is real foods. The workout part is using your body weight: no gym, no equipment, no nothing. Just you and it really works you.

**I noticed another reviewer who questioned whether she was just out of shape or are the exercises really hard?... and I would say BOTH. The exercises themselves aren't hard on their own, but when completed in a set, it's more than you do in your typical workout; that's what makes it so efficient. My husband bought the men's version of this book (which is the same as the women's but with added weight and a couple of the exercises were modified) and before our vacation he did this program for 6 weeks, religiously. He's 43 and fit. I'm talking 1.5 in the gym 6 days a week, serious about proper fitness and form type of man. He thought this workout couldn't be much of anything because of the mere simplicity of them and how little time he would be spending on the workout. He was more than a little surprised when he had a hard time completing the routine the first week. This workout pushes you to the limit. He was able to do the full circuit and at the end of the workout he was drenched in sweat, like he never would be at the gym, and he saw results. He was leaner and stronger. His cardiovascular system was so much stronger that at about the 3rd week, after his workout he would go and run a mile, "just for fun".

What I'm saying might sound daunting, but I recommended this book to my 57 year old mother.

This WH plan really does work. I would really not call it a diet, it's definitely more of a lifestyle. Nothing in it is extreme, just great suggestions to become the best version of you. I lost 25 pounds so far following the guidelines in this book and I honestly can't say enough good things about it. I was lucky enough to get the plan prior to the release of this new version of the book. I reported back weekly and provided a testimonial at the end. Again - you have nothing to lose except unwanted weight. :)

Love this book. Easy to read. Easy to follow. Makes sense. Realistic goals, food plans, work out plans for a lifestyle change. Its not really a diet when you think about it. It is a lifestyle change. The foodplan is not grass and treebark. You can eat real food. The concepts about muscle and fat finally make sense. Must buy.

I appreciate the balanced approach to diet and weight loss. The book explores many researched findings. I think nowadays it's easy to make undocumented claims in order to persuade, but I didn't get the impression that this book was selling a fad, rather it presented a balanced approach and generally healthy lifestyle.

I bought this book hoping it was specific with what types of foods to eat with recipes, but it was a lot of what is already in the magazine. If anybody is a subscriber to Women's Health, I think it's just a repeat of the information and may not be necessary. If it had more recipes, I would have given it a better rating.

This book has a lot of good nutritional information. It helps direct you in how to decipher nutrition labels. I have not finished the book or been able to completely follow all the recommendations it gives, because there are so many!
