Newest AMAZON review for FITNESS at 40,50,60 and BEYOND
This Book Works . . . If You "Work" the Book By lfowler910 on January 27, 2014 Format: Paperback First of all, let's face it, if you are 40, 50, 60 and beyond (or even if you are 20, 30), you know that there is no "miracle" cure, drug, powder, or program for weight loss and getting fit, it just does not exist. YOU HAVE TO WATCH WHAT YOU EAT AND YOU HAVE TO EXERCISE . . . THERE'S JUST NO WAY AROUND IT! I am 50 years old and I have struggled with my weight and the whole idea of exercise all of my life. Over the past 10 years, through watching what I eat (types of foods and amounts) and walking 3 miles a day, I have been able to lose over 90 lbs, but for the past year or so I have reached the point where I am no longer losing. With respect to exercise, I'll be honest, I just don't like going to gym (mainly because I don't know what to do with the equipment or the right way to exercise). That is why this book is GREAT. This book starts by telling you the science behind aging, weight loss and exercise and its effects on the body, and then provides actual diet tips, but, most importantly for me, it provides actual guidance as to an exercise routine, resistance training (lifting weights), and provides great pictures as to how an exercise should be done and a schedule for when to do the exercises and how often. This is exactly what I need, because I am at a loss when it comes to the gym and what I should be doing and how (therefore, I just never tried). It only takes me about 75 minutes to lift weights and do the cardio plan, which was a great surprise to me (I always thought "going to the gym" would be a 2 hour ordeal!), and that is only 3 days a week (the other days I just do cardio)! I have also had the opportunity to speak personally with the author and to get some pointers (oh, and by the way, the picture of the author on the cover of the book is real . . . not touched up). He has used these techniques over the years, they are proven and it shows. I wish I would have had this book 30 years ago! If you are looking for a book that has been tested, tried, and proven, then THIS BOOK IS IT! If you "work" this book, it will "work" for you.
