Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Biggest Loser: The Weight-Loss Program to Transform Your Body, Health, and Life (Taschenbuch)
The Biggest Loser is a book of colorful pictures, advice from the show's trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels, a short explanation of "The Biggest Loser" diet plan, a 12-week exercise routine, low-carb-recipes, and remarks from the contestants of the show.
In a nutshell, "The Biggest Loser" diet consists of radicaly imiting your caloric intake to seven times your body weight (in pounds). So, if your current weight is under 150 Pounds, you can eat 1050 Kcal. With each pound, that you have already lost, you have to limit your daily caloric intake by 10. There's a "4-3-2-1 Biggest Loser Pyramid" which shows you which foods you should eat and in what quanties, in your caloric recommendation: including fruits and vegetables, proteins, whole grains, and "extras." For a drastic weight loss you have to exercice as much as you can, in addition to the caloric limitation- the more, the better. The book contains a chart with the recommendated daily/weekly exercising in relation to your fitness-level.
You are encouraged to drink lots of water, use artificial sweeteners sparingly, eat 4-6 planned meals, portion-size your foods to avoid overeating, read labels like a hawk, and steer clear from certain appetite-stimulating foods.
Stay away from sugar, get more water consumption, eat often enough small portions, to ward off hunger, skip the dinner bread and eat a salad first at a restaurant, replace television watching with exercise, eat healthy carbs found in fruits and vegetables, and so on.
I tried to like the book. I found it by the Amazon-suggestions by searching for „Jillian Michaels“, from who I recently bacame a Fan by her fitness DVD „Shred- Schlank in 30 Tagen“.
As I have never seen the „Biggest Loser“-Show, I was hoping for more personal stories about the contestants. I love Weight-Loss-Succes- Storys, but the book contained almost none. There are very little before/after photos, and very little in-depth profiles of the contestants. All you get is blurbs from them. So, this book is for people who have seen the show- and therefore know the weight-loss-Stories of the contestants.
As a diet-book, "The Biggest Loser" is like any other, rushed-to-print diet-book. In a nutshell: Eat less, move more.
