My Thoughts: 

There are many exercise books and miracle pills on the market. But do they work? Get Skinny is very different from all the other exercise books that I have read. The author has written a book that is motivating, easy to follow and very informative. All of the exercises mentioned in the book are explained fully with pictures that show the correct form that is needed to do them right. In the chapter "Committed to Change," he told a story of a woman who was struggling with her weight and when she met Scott her life changed and she became fit. I have also been struggling with my weight and have followed many Fab diets that did not work. I have reached my ideal weight and maintained it for a while and the pounds have always crept up. Scott has written a great book to get you started on your weight loss journey. Would you like to win a copy?

  3. Become physically Active. (remotes do not count)

I have always known that fish, nuts, vegetables and red wine has always been good for you but the book explains how they help the body reverse heart disease. There are great recipes and two weeks of meals plans to assist you in implementing the program. The author has written an excellent article about the importance of walnuts in your diet.

    My Thoughts-

    The books was fantastic, easy to read, informative and complete. As a Registered Nurse, I am familiar with the topics discussed in the book but in reading the book, I learned so much more about heart health. All of the information discussed was presented in a way that was concise and easy to understand. I especially liked the chapter that discussed what the underlying cause of heart disease-Atherosclerosis and how it affects the arteries. When I was growing up, my family always ate food rich in butter and creams unaware of what we were doing to our bodies. Now my family watches our fat and sugar intake to prevent heart disease and diabetes. The book was well researched and the information was up to date. I recommend the book to everyone to help them protect their heart. Would you like to win a copy of this great book?

    My Thoughts-

    My family is always looking for recipes to help us stay fit and healthy. The layout of the book was great. Each recipe is easy to follow and includes tips,nutritional breakdown, portion size and of course the calories saved when substituting healthier ingredients. We made the fudgy chocolate brownies and they were quite tasty. There are some recipes that she uses a sugar substitute but does not recommend a brand to use. My family uses apple sauce and Stevia as a substitute for sugar when needed. This is a great book for everyone who wants to live a little healthier.

    This Is Why You're Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever): Eat More, Cheat More, Lose More--and Keep the Weight Off

    According to Jackie Warner, "Being fat isn't your fault; staying fat is." In her book This is Why You're Fat, she shows you how to lose weight and inches quickly without depriving yourself and doing grueling workouts. There are behaviors that make you fat and with Jackie's core principles you can learn to make you thin forever:

    1. ADD TO LOSE- With her 2-week jump start you add foods to your diet and no food is forbidden.

    2. CHEATING IS ALLOWED- After you eat clean for 5 days, you can indulge in anything you want over the weekend.

    3. FAT IS NOT THE ENEMY- She says that sugar makes you fat and you should have no more than 9 grams of sugar.

    4. SKIP THE CRUNCHES- They only make you build muscle under the fat. It is important to find the best and fastest way to burn calories, tone muscle and increase your metabolism for rapid weight loss.

    5. LESS (EXCERCISE) IS MORE- You do not have to spend hours working out. Give her 20 minutes and you will see results.

    So if you head to the gym, follow Jackie's advice:

    Gym Etiquette

    If anybody knows about proper gym etiquette, it’s me. I own a gym and have to constantly stay on top of my staff to follow the rules. A lot of clients tell me that they’re intimidated by gyms because they feel they don’t know how to use the equipment or feel they are out of place, in the way. Part of feeling comfortable in the gym is knowing the rules of a gym.
    I’ll clear up a few of these for you, so you can go into any gym with confidence.

    ✱Learn the proper operation of equipment. If you’re unsure of how something works, ask for assistance.

    ✱ Pick up after yourself. Put your weights away. The next people in line don’t want to hunt around for the weights they need or, worse yet, try to remove the weights you left out.

    ✱ Allow people to “work in.” Many people do multiple sets on the weight machines, then sit on the equipment during their recovery time. If someone is waiting to use the same machine, the proper etiquette is to allow her to work in or do her set while you recover. So do your set, get off, and let the other person work in.

    Don’t be shy about asking someone if you can work in, either. However, don’t work in if there are already two people waiting to use the same equipment.

    ✱ Don’t drop weights. Not only is dropping weights dangerous for your toes, but it damages the equipment and the floor. The rule of thumb is: If you can lift it, you can put it down gently.

    ✱ Observe time limits on cardio equipment. Some gyms have time limits (usually thirty minutes) on the cardio equipment (treadmills, elliptical trainers, stationary bikes, and so on), especially during peak hours. If you see people waiting around to use your type of machine, be especially conscious of the time limit.

    ✱ Wipe your sweat off the equipment. Gyms are notorious places for spreading nasty germs like staph infections, so practice good hygiene. And always lay a towel on the equipment to protect yourself.

    ✱ Don’t disturb other gym goers. The gym can be a great place to meet other healthy
    people. But don’t be too chatty. You are there to work to intensity. Stay focused on
    your goals.


    There are many diet books out there and so called miracle pills on the market. But do they work? In the book, she talks about balance in your body chemistry, and hormones. She explains what foods will help you to maintain the balance so you can lose that unwanted fat. She says that the biggest culprit is sugar. Most of us eat too much sugar every day. The author supplies all the tools to help change the way you look at food. She also says that exercising is an important part of losing weight. There is a section in the book that explains all of the exercises and how to do them correctly. I have joined a gym with my mom and it has helped me stay motivated but you can do them at home. There is a section in the book with some recipes to help you get started. I recommend this book for anyone who wants some motivation to get started.

    Check out the article posted on the AOL fitness site.

    The book even made it to the New York Times Best Seller List this week.

Many of your nagging health problems will melt away with the pounds, including fatigue, aches and pains, allergies, and depression.

You'll learn how reducing your toxic burden can help you stay lean for life. Dr. Crinnion helps you determine whether your weight gain is toxin-related and prescribes several cleansing methods and toxin-fighting supplements to rid your body of heavy metals and other poisons. Could it be your house that's making you fat? Dr. Crinnion helps you identify sources of toxic chemicals, allergens, and poisons in your home where you might least expect them. You'll learn how to remove and dispose of them safely, keep new toxins out, and make your home as clean and green as it can be.

    Clean, Green, and Lean contains healthy, delicious, clean, green recipes and two weeks of meal plans for lean breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. These nutritious and satisfying meals will keep your stomach full, your body toxin-free, and your body and mind working at peak efficiency.

    Filled with inspiring, true-life stories of people who have lost weight, healed their bodies, and turned their lives around following Dr. Crinnion's four-week plan, Clean, Green, and Lean is the groundbreaking book you need to slim down, clean up, and start enjoying life again.Check out the Recipe from the book, and there are many more recipes listed in the back.

    My Thoughts-
    When I agreed to review the book, I thought it was just another diet book. Boy was I wrong. I never realized how much toxins are out there and the book explains how we can get rid of them safely. I decided to give the information presented in the book a try. My mom and I went shopping and started to read the nutrition information while we shopped. The food we were eating was loaded with preservatives and other harmful ingredients. We thought that we were eating right. The author mentions in the book to cut out milk and since I love milk that will never happen. All the information presented was well researched and the book was easy to read. So far we have been following the guidelines in the book for fifteen days and we both have more energy. The fourteen day menu plan was helpful and there was a section that provided resources if we needed more information on a topic. I wonder how we will feel when we follow the program for thirty days?

    There's Always a Way: How to Develop a Positive Mindset and Succeed in Business and LifeIn the book There's Always a Way: How to Develop a Positive Mindset and Succeed in Business and Life,  Tony tells us about his life story. We always see Tony with his Ponytail and shouting "You can do it" but his life has not always been easy. He had run-ins with the law and his mother sent him away to live with his uncle. While he was there he became a successful body builder. His whole life changed when he had a car accident. He had numerous surgeries and his body building dream was put on hold. He was in the worst shape and he gained over 50 lbs. He had to change his life. He is living proof that you can always achieve what you want in life.

    In his book he explains:

    1. Tony explains how to use fears and insecurities to sharpen one's selling game and build self-confidence.
    2. Tony demonstrates dynamite secrets for self-motivation, overcoming negativity, and thinking out of the box.
    3. Tony explains how to build a positive mind set, create a buzz, exploit humor, find a niche, set goals, ask the right questions, close the sale, make the customer into a star, achieve peak selling performance, and turn oneself into a lean, mean selling machine.
    4. Having grown his business in a tough market, Tony explains how to stand out in these down times.
    My Thoughts-

    When I started to read the book, I thought that this was just another book by a celebrity. Boy was I wrong. I had seen him on TV and he always had such energy. In reading the book I found out things about him I did not know. The book was well written and I enjoyed the photos. There was a wealth of information that can help you succeed and the information was presented in an upbeat way. That is what I would have expected from Tony. I recommend this book to everyone to help you make a positive change in your life.


    Thanks to the author and SSA public Relations I am able to give away a copy of this great book.

    Wake Up! You're Probably Never Going to Look Like That ... How to be Happier, Healthier and Imperfectly Fit

    In Wake Up! You're Probably Never Going to Look Like That . How to be Happier, Healthier and Imperfectly Fit the author Michelle Pearl talks about her experiences with weight loss. She had suffered with being overweight most of her life and she learned how to overcome it. The book talks about calories, weight loss, plastic surgery, eating disorders, pills and other interesting topics. She discussed some "Myths" of weight loss and how some programs may be teaching people the incorrect way of losing weight. I did find that there were some negative comments about other weight loss programs in the book. Whether they are true or not everyone has their own opinions. Throughout the book there are testimonies from people who were able to overcome obesity and get fit. I found the book interesting and there was a wealth of information.

    The book has three objectives: To teach us about some of the mistruths about weight loss that we are constantly being bombarded with, to give realistic advice on how to lose and keep off the weight and finally to encourage you to have realistic body expectations to help you succeed. There are no exercise or diet programs to follow in the book but the author provides the tools to help you lose weight. There are charts and tips to help explain what the author is saying and the book was easy to read. There is information that everyone could find useful. Check out the authors website where you can download customized  dance fitness videos to help with your fitness journey.

    In the book The Serotonin Power Diet , the authors explain how boosting serotonin can help curb your appetite and change your mood. Carbohydrates trigger Serotonin production in the brain and this can be used to your advantage. We all have a lot of stress in our lives that can cause us to binge eat and gain weight. The book has a section that helps us deal with stress and gives very useful tips in how we can manage it. There are many recipes that are in the book, but my favorite was the Asian chicken wrap. I have lost 5 lbs. on the program and I feel good about myself. The book also stresses that exercise is a major part in weight loss and there is a chapter dedicated to it.

    The book was easy to read, and gave us real life examples of people who shared their temptations and what strategies they used to overcome them. I have always thought that eating to many carbs caused you to gain weight, but if they are eaten at the right time and in moderation they can actually help you lose weight. The plan provides a 12 week guide that not only tells you what to do but why you are doing it. I recommend the program to everyone who needs a jump start to lose weight correctly and for good.

    I just finished reading Quick and Easy Tips to Lose Weight by G. Salgado Chavez and I found the information presented concise and easy to read. She presented some statistics that I would like to share with you.

    • 28% of all Americans have hypertension.

    • 64% of people in the US are overweight or obese.

    • 1 in 4 children are obese.

    • Obesity in children has doubled in the last 10years.

    • 1.1million Americans have a heart attack every year.

    • 1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will develop cancer.

    • There are more listed in the book.

    The book is for any person who has been struggling to lose weight and is looking for a permanent solution to keep the pounds off, and intends to boost their health to optimum levels. These tips are as practical as they are easy to do, and they can help anyone feel better, and gain strength, balance and energy. Written in reader-friendly prose, Chavez’s book takes a holistic and modern view of weight loss, addressing stress factors, chemical toxicity, movement and proper nutrition, as well as diet. Whether readers want to shed a few pounds or many, Quick and Easy Tips to Lose Weight is the sensible and effective way to do it.

    About the Author-

    Georgina Salgado Chavez holds degrees in naturopathic medicine, acupuncture and hypnotherapy. Specializing in consultations and lectures, she has been featured on ABC News, iparenting, and more. She lives with her family in Chicago, Ill.

    My thoughts-

    I have always been a fan of a book that was concise and easy to read. The book is only 60 pages long and has a lot of worthwhile information in it. There was one section on parasites that was too descriptive but the information presented was correct. Stress affects us every day and there is a chapter in the book that defines the types of stress and how it can affect any age group. There are forty nine tips that are mentioned that can be useful in your weight loss program and everyone who wants to live a healthy lifestyle would benefit from reading this book.

    Free From Perfect by Eileen Palazzolo was born from the author's struggle with self-image, weight and eating habits that turned into eating disorders that affected her life.

    In the book, she discusses key points that include-

    • Control (or lack of control) and how it affects your eating habits.
    • Happiness and self-esteem.
    • Your body and how you perceive your body.
    • Stress, overeating and willpower.
    • Influences from commercialism (magazines, TV shows, celebrities and fads).
    • Binge eating- Have you ever eaten a whole box of cookies and  never realized that you   did it? This topic is discussed fully in the book.
    • Deterrents that prevent weight loss.
    • Fear of failure.
    • Mental well-being (self-forgiveness and acceptance of yourself.)
    • Food and your desire to lose weight. (Dietary guidelines discussed fully.)
    • Short and long term weight loss and maintenance goals.
    • Exercise, cosmetic surgery and numbers.

    The author ties all of these key points together in a program that combines the physical and mental aspects of losing weight. The author recommended keeping a journal and she has sections that ask you question about your feelings at that time. In reading the book, I found out things about myself that I was unaware of. I recommend that if you start any weight loss program you discuss it with your doctor especially if you have health issues. She also says that you must exercise. She included tips to help you stay motivated and feel good about your-self. The book was easy to read and I recommend it to anyone who needs assistance in their weight loss struggle.

    About the Author-
    Eileen has been running her"Free" program for several years in Southern NH where she is also a fitness and gymnastic instructor. After recovering from an eating disorder, she realized that she had to help others overcome  society's view of perfection. She is not a nutritionist,psychologist, physician or a physiologist but an ordinary person.
