Audio Book : 6 Weeks to OMG - Venice A. Fulton
I'll admit I got this as I was bored at work. Had a stack of laptops and computers to repair and felt my brain slowly melting as software was reinstalling. It is just luck I picked this. This is aimed at teenage girls I think? The attitude of the author in communicating to the reader is like asking your slightly boozed up but vastly knowledgeable mate down the pub what to do to lose weight. Its basically a mass of all the latest and bestest
weight loss tricks and plans in one neat book. As I listened to this book I saw news articles on tv about brown fat being stimulated by cold showers etc to burn mega calories. This has a chapter on how to introduce cold baths daily into your regime. Starting at 20 degrees C. What the safety limits are. Body brushing for lymph emptying while in the bath etc. Its basically an encyclopedia of proven weight loss tips that if you followed would destroy your body fat in no time at all. Diet is basically one of 3 options based on speed you want to lose weight. High protein, small carbs.
Pros : Very detailed plans of each technique and why it works. There will be something for everyone here. I think if you did combine them all in a 6 week period you would lose vast weight. No calories counting etc. Only carbs are monitored by weight. All techniques have a step by step way on introducing over the 6 weeks and are realistic.
Cons : Not long -term. Some of the techniques are useful if you can add them to your lifestyle. Lot of the techniques are well known like the intermittent fasting, green teas, coffee, hunt and rest before food, exercise in morning etc. However the explanations and research into timings etc is superb. To have it all in one place is gold.
All the techniques are easy to implement. Implementing them all might not be.
The research seems sound. Add as many or few as you like.
