In my quest to master the world of fitness and health, I picked up Women's Health Perfect Body Diet: The Ultimate Weight Loss and Workout Plan to Drop Stubborn Pounds and Get Fit for Life from my local library. I must say that I was completely surprised about the way the book was composed and illustrated.
The book is broken down into 3 distinct areas: Perfect Planning, Perfect Eating and Perfect Movements. Each area explains not only what you need to do in order to obtain the perfect body, but it goes through the actual science behind it in Lehman's terms. This is probably the best party of the work because they back up every detail of the book by the science explaining that this is how your body works. Obviously, there is probably a reverse study that disproves the very study they mentioned BUT that is the world we are living in right now. The way they explained in detail how the body works and what needs to be done is so easy to comprehend that you will sit and wonder why you didn't know these facts yourself.
Another major benefit of this book is that they conduct a test to determine which of the two nutrition plans the reader should follow in order to maximize their results. Most fitness books have a one-size-fits-all plan that is only differentiated by the amount of calories males and females should be consuming. I won't give away the details (as usual) but the test determines how your body processes different types of food in order to provide you with a nutrition plan that will maximize your overall weight loss. I am still at a loss as to why I haven't read this in any other book yet!
While I did not go through and commit to completing the perfect body diet, I felt that this would be an asset to anyone who is just starting out on their weight loss journey OR is looking to find out a proper nutrition plan to maximize their weight loss efforts. This plan includes very few foreign ingredients and supplements and the recipes are super easy to follow! Both major plus' when trying to follow a diet from a book.
Have you read this book before? Or are you a Women's Health Magazine fan like me?
