Live, learn, love.
I never thought I'd endorse such a very strict plan, but actually as most human beings have no will power and being over weight is becoming a generic human condition, I have to say I think it's a tough but effective way to get you on the right track. The plan is pretty full on (I won't ruin the fun by telling you what you have to do first thing in the morning) and many won't agree with it, but if you have the guts to have a go, it does work and it's great if you just want to get the motivational juices going to continue on a healthy diet plan.
"Short and poorly read, but informative"
Sure. I'm not going to promote it, but I wouldn't detract it, either. The content is good, hard-hitting and very applicable. The included PDF is a must-have if you read the book.
LIke Bob Harper, the information in his book is full of tough love and direct how-to's.
Considering that Bob is a public speaker and television star, I was disappointed with his wooden speech as he read the book. He's a considerably better speaker when he speaks from the cuff. His flat speech in the book was downright distracting.
I would recommend that anyone looking for a follow-up NOT buy the Skinny Rules audiobook. The audiobook is ONLY the rules and does not contain the menus, recipes, or tools that the printed or Kindle book contain. There is no extra PDF for that book like there is for Jumpstart to Skinny. I would recommend the Kindle or printed book.
The piece of the book that resounded with me the most was when Bob talked about medicine. He basically said that if you went to a professional doctor and asked for help, if the doctor prescribed a specific medicine, you wouldn't mess with the dosage or look for a substitute. By that reasoning, Bob is a professional and what he wrote in his book works. Don't look for substitutes or change anything that he has planned.
This was important to me since I was already looking for substitutes. It was a good reminder that the program is only 3 weeks. Just do what Bob says.
"Great book for short tee weight loss and long term good habits"
As a single mom of a special needs child I rarely have time to read a book. I sit in cubicle 9-10 hours/day. This book really helped clarify questions about supplements, staying focused,caloric intake, etc...
I am a formal NFL cheerleader and I struggle now in my 40s to maintain my 5'5 130lbs figure. This book is great!!
Oh and his workouts are also awesome! I don't have time for a gym and I use his workouts at least 3x/week.
Good book, a bit short but very interesting. Pfd is missing so maybe the paper version would be a better choice.
"Great plans.... short book..."
I love the very thorough PDF with recipes and exercises.
Well, it was just bob reading so... no characters.
I think Bob isn't an incredibly natural reader but that's ok. It's not his normal job. It sounds like he's reading it and not saying it comfortably. But if it works, who cares.
Just the part where he said some people are convinced that they just have the body they are meant to have and they have no way of changing that really.
I will let you know if it works!
"easy to understand & motivting"

listing 13 things to remember
he did all the work for us
I am not reviewing his tips just the book its self. He just discussed the handout for the most part and explained some of the must do's for this 3 week almost starvation (800 cal) diet to get ready for an event. It wasn't really what I was looking for but now I know.
