This Is Why You're Fat Book Review & Giveaway!


This Is Why You're Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever)

"Being fat isn't your fault; staying fat is." That's what Jackie Warner, America's favorite no-nonsense celebrity fitness trainer tells her own clients, and that's why no one delivers better results than Jackie does. Now for the first time, Jackie shares her revolutionary program, showing readers the best ways to drop pounds and inches fast, without grueling workouts or deprivation, and keep them off for good! Her two-tiered approach provides a complete nutritional makeover and a failure-proof condensed workout routine PLUS all the emotional support and encouragement you need to get to the finish line and beyond. 
 Jackie Warner 
Celebrity trainer and Bravo TV docu-host Jackie Warner shares her secret training weapons for successful dieting and high-energy exercise in her new book, "This is Why You're Fat." In it, she suggests shorter, more intense cardio workouts to blitz body fat, and also shows how to diet to drop four to six pounds in a month without feeling starved. Here are Jackie's top nutrition and fitness tips:
 
You recommend maintaining what clients and readers are already eating but suggest they start adding in new and healthy foods (i.e. oatmeal, whole fruits, etc.) to learn how to eat healthier for life. Why do you allow such a slow start to this diet plan?

Jackie Warner: I designed the first two weeks of my food plan to be a "non-diet." When you add fat-burning and detoxifying foods (water with lemon, for example) into your daily calories, you rapidly change your body chemistry to satisfy physical and emotional hungers. I came upon this by accident; I always ask new clients to keep seven-day food journals and what I noticed is that most of them either skipped breakfast or ate high-calorie breakfasts followed by a long stretch of starvation and a huge dinner. By adding in new foods, their cravings for sugary and fatty foods
 Why do you slash cardio minutes down to only 20 minutes on five days a week of running, walking, biking or other aerobic exercises?
JW: I suggest you prime your body to become a real fat-burning machine by increasing your metabolic ratelifting weights at least two to three days a week; that's equally important to smoking calories via cardio exercise. Then on top of the more intense weight-lifting exercises, I do suggest putting maximum effort into cardio workouts but only for 20 minutes or so per session. My fast-moving interval programs train your body to go longer at higher levels of effort and work at a higher percentage of your aerobic capacity. That blasts more calories, helps you lose weight and quickly improves overall health.
 What are your biggest diet no-nos for the rest of the month while we are busy skipping desserts and other highly processed, unhealthy foods?

JW:
First, let's talk about the healthiest rule, which is, listen to your body when it tells you are full and don't keep eating. Now, here are my top four diet mistakes:

1. If you cheat on a day that you are supposed to be eating clean, don't get disheartened and throw away the rest of the day or week with bad eating. Get right back into my program.
2. Don't use workouts as an excuse to be gluttonous and eat junk. Always want to be at a calorie deficit to lose weight.
3. Master portion control. Learn what a serving size is and how many portions you can eat and still lose weight.
4. Never skip a meal! Always eat five meals a day and two snacks.by decreased the body starts decreased,the starts correcting itself within a couple days and you no longer have cravings in a week or two.
