The Warrior Diet by Ori Hofmekler Review

Author Ori Hofmekler blames the current epidemic of obesity on today’s eating habits and lifestyle. Looking back to the warrior and hunter-gathered cultures, he has designed The Warrior Diet to help anyone get back into shape. The ancient world produced few fat people, and it was because of when and what they ate.

The Warrior Diet is not simply a book that will tell you what or what not to eat, and in what portions. It is written to help you understand how your body functions and how to get optimal benefits of weight loss and health. Although the title may suggest otherwise, The Warrior Diet will work well for women, too.

What Is The Warrior Diet All About?

The Warrior Diet is based on the idea of ‘cycling’ – which is how the author believes was followed in warrior cultures of the past. This involves actually eating very little during the day (when the men would be out hunting) and then having a large meal in the evening (when returning with the day’s catch).

This way of living was basically what was practiced for thousands and thousands of years, it was only when people became more sedentary that the problem of obesity arose.

The Biggest Loser by The Biggest Loser Experts and Cast - Review

When The Biggest Loser first aired in 2004, it changed the national dieting landscape almost overnight. The Biggest Loser brought the subject of weight loss to the forefront in a way that no other television show had done in the past. What’s more, its continued success has demonstrated how resoundingly interested in this subject the American TV audience truly is.

But what is the secret to its success? To me, the thing that keeps us coming back week after week is a combination of the personal connection we feel with the cast (and their weight loss struggles) as well as the inner demons we face in our own weight loss struggles. Upon seeing that a Biggest Loser book had been released, I was instantly intrigued.

What is The Biggest Loser Book About?

The book version of The Biggest Loser is subtitled “The Weight Loss Program to Transform Your Body, Health, and Life--Adapted from NBC's Hit Show!” Whew, that’s a mouthful-- but the book really does appear to offer a massive variety of information.

Beginning with insights from the cast and creators of the show, the book also packs recipes, a complete diet plan, color photographs, and exercise and fitness regimens, as well as tips and tricks to achieve long term weight loss.

Kettlebells For Dummies by Sarah Lurie Review

Nobody likes being called a dummy. But I confess, when it comes to exercising, the title is probably a fairly accurate one for me. It takes a lot for me to feel motivated enough to work out, and beyond that, there aren't many work out methods that I am familiar with enough to feel comfortable performing regularly to achieve significant weight loss.

Kettlebells would probably not be my first choice, but perusing the enthusiastic reviews for Sarah Lurie's book, Kettlebells for Dummies, made me think twice: could I be a dummy for not giving kettlebells a chance?

How Does Kettlebells For Dummies Work?

First, a quick description for those of us who know next to nothing about this trendy exercise technique. Kettlebells are small, hand-held weights that provide a workout that builds overall strength, endurance, along with cardiovascular exercise.

Kettlebell proponents believe that this workout can work more muscles and provide more calorie burning than similar workouts -- as much as 1,000 calories an hour!

The Fat Flush Plan by Ann Louise Gittleman Review

As it seems so much easier to put weight on than to take it off, I looked into The Fat Flush Plan to see whether it would help you lose weight.

This book really offers a way to lose a significant amount of weight and would be especially helpful to people who are already experiencing other health problems in addition to weight.

Dr Ann Louise has helped many people completely eliminate their health problems. In this short video below, she talks about real cases of people who saw amazing results with her diet book .

As you probably know, diabetes can sometimes be brought on simply by being obese, but the condition itself may make it hard for you to slim down at all. This diet plan has helped those with diabetes and cholesterol issues to help manage their health issues better while losing weight, so I think it might also be able to help you whether you have any health problems or are simply overweight.

Take-Out Tonight book by Weight Watchers Review

I love take out as much as the next person... probably more than the next person! But never in my history of dieting did I think that my love of take out would help to begin, rather than end, a diet.

Weight Watchers created Take Out Tonight in an effort to show readers ways to create healthy version of their favorite take out dishes at home. In true Weight Watchers fashion, each recipe comes complete with information regarding calories, fat, and Weight Watchers points.

What is Take Out Tonight About?

The concept behind this book is that what people love most about ordering take out is the food itself – take out staples like General Tso’s Chicken, Pad Thai, or even Nachos (and other types of ethnic food) are covered here. By recreating or emulating these staple dishes, the book allows readers to create healthier versions of the dishes they crave.

But I couldn’t help but wonder if the convenience of ordering take out may also be a major part of its appeal. Being an aspiring cook myself, the idea of recreating my favorite take out items appeals to me.

The Mayo Clinic Diet Review: Lose 6-10 lbs a Week?

Losing weight and keeping it off is never easy. Once you have put on some unwanted pounds, it will quickly become evident that getting them off again can be a problem.

There are hundreds of diet plans around, and if you are like most people you have probably tried a handful of them, at least. And, as you are probably aware, most of these diet plans are impossible to stick with for any length of time; the foods you need to eat are usually unappetizing or so far from what you usually eat that you quickly give up.

Excellent results are possible with The Mayo Clinic Diet without forcing you to re-educate yourself in order to follow the plan.

Lose Weight With Green Tea: A Safe Weight Loss Method That Works Review

I drink coffee every morning but lately have been switching to green tea in the afternoon. I have long heard that green tea helps with weight loss by increasing metabolism and stemming appetite. Not only that, it has other supposed health effects--anti-cancer properties, lowers blood pressure, even helps with gum disease.
