This is Why You're Fat Book Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED

Hey guys! So my next review and giveaway is for the book This is Why You're Fat by Jackie Warner. The book description of Amazon.com says this about the book: "Being fat isn't your fault; staying fat is." That's what Jackie Warner, America's favorite no-nonsense celebrity fitness trainer tells her own clients, and that's why no one delivers better results than Jackie does. Now for the first time, Jackie shares her revolutionary program, showing readers the best ways to drop pounds and inches fast, without grueling workouts or deprivation, and keep them off for good! Her two-tiered approach provides a complete nutritional makeover and a failure-proof condensed workout routine PLUS all the emotional support and encouragement you need to get to the finish line and beyond. With Jackie's core principles, you'll discover once and for all which behaviors are making you fat, and which can finally make you thin forever-and some may surprise you."



I actually really liked this book. I'm a sucker for "How to Lose Weight/Work Out" books. I'll be the first to tell you that I'm not fat but I've got some love handles and big thighs that need to loose some weight or at least tighten. But I love workout/diet books like this for some reason. Most of them say the same thing, you have to work and eat healthy. You have to do cardio and weights. The basics you know? But I like that they give you ideas of what foods to eat by giving you a meal plan. Though I'm a vegetarian so the dinner menus didn't work out really except like one fish one but it was nice to see different selections for lunch, breakfast, and the 2 snacks. I also like how they have examples of exercise routines too.

It's not just the examples, but I find books like this very informative. It tells you what foods help you burn fat faster, what foods store fat, etc. I just think stuff like that is very interesting and good to know.

I actually did join a gym about 2 days ago...I've yet to go...but I plan on going next week! So I definitely want to start using these routines as well as try to eat healthier. The book recommends eating fruits when you have a sugar craving also add in some spinach to your smoothies and whey protein so you get the right amount of nutrients. I make tons of smoothies so I do plan on buying spinach in the near future. If you add fruit to your smoothie too it cancels out the taste of the spinach.

All in all I really did like this book. Will I use the diet routine? I really want to try but I can't make any promises. But I'm going to start working out and see how that goes.

Buy It! Head on over to Amazon.com and order it there or look for it at your local Borders or Barnes and Noble!
