Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss
Physician Mark Hyman (Ultra-Prevention: The 6 Week Plan That Will Make You Healthy for Life) delivers plenty of scientifically grounded information about weight loss myths, effective individualized strategies centered around the theme of stoking metabolism and a detailed six-week plan—complete with menus and recipes—that “will help you lose 11 to 21 pounds” in those first six weeks. The data and prescription the author provides are far from simple, and results, if attained, are not automatic. But dogged readers will come away from the book with a thorough understanding of dieting principles, such as the timing of meals, portion size, glycemic load, phytonutrient index, the weight loss benefits of relaxation and the optimized functioning of the thyroid. There are straightforward principles buried in the text, such as “eat fruits and vegetables” and “move your body,” plus tips for eating out (e.g., “don’t be afraid to ask for substitutions in a dish,” “request a ‘crudités platter’… instead of the breadbasket” and “order a light drink”); adhering to these tips alone should prove beneficial.
Winning by Losing: Drop the Weight, Change Your Life
Fitness guru Jillian Michaels, a fitness and life coach who has appeared on NBC’s The Biggest Loser, brings her tough-love style to the pages of her first offering. For those familiar with Loser, Michael’s no-excuses approach here may seem less intimidating than it does to those meeting her on television. She writes with an edge, warning readers that they cannot make excuses, they will work hard and they will suffer setbacks, but they will also change their lives for the better. Her “3-S” (Self, Science and Sweat) plan covers the mental and physical, and Michaels dedicates equal sections of the book to each. In Self, she announces to readers that she was an “overweight and unhappy teenager” who took charge of her life, challenging readers to do the same. While no book has the power to change a person, the tips Michaels provides-create a support system, keep a journal, change your self-talk-do. In Science, Michaels dispels common diet myths (skipping meals is best, diet pills work), provides recipes for meals and snacks and introduces the concept of fast-, slow- and balanced-oxidizers, which determines a person’s ideal diet. The final Sweat chapters include easy-to-follow exercises accompanied by photos, and a five-day-per-week, 12-week fitness program centered on burn-and-tone cardio training. The book and coaching come relatively cheap, but to follow the program without substitution exercises, readers will need access to a gym or a weight machine.
