    "Full of Facts and great Advices"

    I really like Jillian's books. I bought this book for 2 reasons, the title and that it is Jillian.
    I actually lost a lot of weight lasst year and reached my goal, but then i thought, i will never gain weight again if i eat what i want now.. big mistake...

    In this book Jillian helps you understand perfectly what is right and whats not.. and you can set a better and reasonable plan to reach and maintain your perfect weight.

    If i had this book last year, i wouldn't have made the mistake of gaining almost 40 lbs, now i'm in the same song i was in before losing that weight..

    What i mainly like here is that she comes and gives you fact and disapproves a lot of meths..

    This book does not focus only on food and exercises, it talks about medicine, house products, and other products that are used daily.

    And the best thing is that you don't have to follow all these advices, she gave a case for everyone , so it pretty much covers everything.

    Thanks Jillian

    "Good Advice, but Probably Better in Print"

    I don't agree with all of what Jillian Michaels says, but I like her philosophy overall. . Although it's nice that Jillian reads it herself, the lists, URLs and point system aren't really conducive to audio -- I think it would be more useful to read it (and then maybe listen to it as a supplement or reinforcement).

    "Has the Goods"

    Jillian Michaels has probably the best grasp on healthy eating, and getting fit realistically of any author I have read on this subject.
    I like that she goes through all the myths and "facts" we have all heard and even lived by, and tells you if they are crap or not, but also Why.
    She also looks at the big picture of how its a lot more then just eating and exercise that affects our efforts. Hormones, even food packaging...lots of good solid info here and I recommend this book to anyone wanting to educate themselves and/or lose some weight.
    Tip - look her up on You Tube for free fitness videos.

    Story
    "Lots of new information"
    What made the experience of listening to Slim for Life the most enjoyable?

    Knowing that Jillian Michaels has proven results and uses herself as examples


    What does Jillian Michaels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her Passion through inflections


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Each myth exposed and explained


    Any additional comments?

    I have already incorporated a few of the learning's in this book into my life!

    I will definitely listen to many parts of this book again.


    The point system was too complicated for me to use as I listened to the book as I get ready in the morning. When I would hear certain facts for the first time I would right them.

    "Very informative and easy to listen to...."

    I have recently been completing Jillian Michaels workout DVDs and was keen to listen to this book. I have learned so much about what NOT to put in my mouth, and if I do, how it will affect me. Processed food has taken on a whole new meaning!
    If you are really interested in getting healthy and staying that way, this book provides excellent and sensible information and I think (after making the decision to get fit and stay that way) that it is well and truly do-able.
    I found that some of the information is very much related to the USA (I live in Australia), but I still found the book useful and helpful.
    I have also found many helpful hints regarding exercise - what to do and what not to do.
    All in all, I was very impressed. I would certainly recommend this one!

    If you could sum up Slim for Life in three words, what would they be?

    Jillian always has a way of inspiring me. I found the book very informative and will listen to it over and over again.

    "Sure, You've Heard It Before... But So What?"

    Jillian's books a fun ways to motivate. her delivery is just as awesome and lively as she is, and the writing is well done. This book has lots of lists, though. I'd recommend getting the physical book to go along with it.

    "This book does not work well as an audiobook"

    This book would work much better in paper form -- it has lots of lists and web links and quizzes, which don't translate well to audio. I am a huge fan of Jillian Michaels but it is painfully dull to listen to her spell out web links that I couldn't really use anyway.

    A better way to have executed this would be to put the tips in audio and have a companion PDF file with all the links, quizzes, and other similar material. That would have been much more useful and made the audiobook more engaging.

    "Be a little skeptical"
    Any additional comments?

    A lot of what's mentioned is useful, but please ignore all she says about homeopathy. Homeopathy is complete quackery with no scientific basis what so ever. The principles of homeopathy go against basic physics, and offer nothing by a placebo effect.

    "I simply love Jillian's advice"
    If you could sum up Slim for Life in three words, what would they be?

    Simple, sound, sensible


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way in which the tips are assigned points to guide you to pick the ones that will have the most impact. It is really well thought out, and the tips and tricks in the book are fit to apply to every kind of life, with a little bit of effort, of course.


    Have you listened to any of Jillian Michaels’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Compared to "Unlimited", "Slim for Life" is restricted to the fitness and weight loss arena. But it is still very good advice for a very important part of our lives: nutrition


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Let you lifestyle slim you down, and keep you that way


    Any additional comments?

    Jillian Michaels is one of the most sensible and knowledgeable fitness experts out there. I swear by her advice and no b-s approach to weightloss, fitness and life. I suggest everyone out there listents to what she has to say,

    "Gillian rocks!"

    I love listening to Gillian. All of this made sense. I find her very straight talking and motivating. A lot of good information and her 80% rule blew me away. I get so disheartened when I lose my way but really it's just a lesson in what not to do. Thank you for taking the time to do an unabridged version.

    "Great but you need to be quick!"

    I loved the content of this. Lots of easy to apply tips and concepts. Loved hearing Jillian lay it all out. The book requires you to commit to doing tasks and to note down and count which one you'll do. Foe me this was hard to do as I listen to books out and about and it's hard to flip back to check details.
