Book Review: Jillian Michaels “Winning by Losing”

w2w2w2w2w     What up! I just finished reading Jillian Michael’s book “Winning by Losing,” and I must say it was a pretty good read. A few of the things that I liked about the book were that it was straight forward and very easy to read (I read the book in 2 days). I like that Jillian breaks down weight loss in 3 keyareas, which are the mind, the nutrition (Science), and the workout (sweat) aspects of fitness. She tackles some weight loss myths and sheds light on Metabolic Typing (I found out I’m a balanced oxidizer). I also noticed that many of the exercises she recommended were body weight exercises (yahoo!!!), which as anyone who has been following blog knows is primarily what I have been doing. Most of the information in the book I already knew from research on the web, and from the info Mr. Low Body Fat (Muta) puts out there. But I did learn more about the Glycemic Load Index, and got a better understanding of reading foot labels. Not to mention all of the recipes and work-out routines provided in her book. I would definitely recommend that anyone starting a weight loss program read this book she gives a lot of information in this book and I wish I would have read it years ago.

Well I holla!!!!!!!

    I hope it’s not too brash but I have just begun writing
    my own weight loss(I shed 30 pounds in a month, so not bad
    , and I was wondering if you could share
    my diet for your blog readers.
    My most recent post is

    If you would like to do a link trade
    that would be excellent since I want to discuss my weight loss success
    with everyone. If I can lose weight then
    any one can. Whatever you do, never give up and you WILL
    achieve all your weight loss goals!
