5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
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.

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).
Knowing that Jillian Michaels has proven results and uses herself as examples
Her Passion through inflections
Each myth exposed and explained
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.
Say something about yourself!
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.
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!
Jillian always has a way of inspiring me. I found the book very informative and will listen to it over and over again.
Cutting through all the myths about weight loss & maintenance that real people can actually use! I also love it when the author is able to narrate their own book so you get the true sense of the content.
Well~ I guess you certainly get your money's worth with this book. She goes into extreme detail about the little tricks on how to cut calories & live a healthy lifestyle. It may have come across better in a print version, but on audio it could be quite a tedious listen. Between her voice & inflections, all the point system & it's recap, it was barely tolerable for me. I was looking more for a motivational book with some actionable steps to live by. This was more of a step by step lifestyle book with very little motivational ideas. Some of the tips, though may be true, seemed a little tedious & silly like eating in front of a mirror or eating with your non dominant hand. She threw everything but the kitchen sink at living a healthy lifestyle & between the presentation & endless obvious to silly ideas I could barely finish it.
No, the info in it is very elementary and Jillian seems like she is trying to be too nice in it. I specifically bought this book because I needed some tough love. If I would have wanted to be coddled I would have bought a book from the other biggest loser coach!
No. Because as an Audiobook it is terrible it is perhaps better in print because your eyes can scane over all the times she says W W W dot AMAZON dot com. or whatever website she is trying to direct you to. I appreciate that she is trying to direct us to resources but feel like this book is written for octogenarians. Look you can tell me just to go to Amazon for something or to go to the Amazon website...I think everyone in America knows that there is a www. before and a dot.com after. It is not necessary to spell out website after website. It is simply annoying.
spelling out websites....being too nice...is she trying to make up for the fact that biggest loser portrayed her as a tough coach? I empathize with that but think everyone knows she is nice and she doesn't have to prove it. I bought a book about fitness and diet to be told things by a tough coach not some up for a Miss Congeniality award!
Yes stop eating carbs in the evening.
Would like a more advanced book. Perhaps I will read the next one as this book didn't transfer well to audiobook especially with the whole counting of points thing
"I simply love Jillian's advice"
Simple, sound, sensible
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.
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
Let you lifestyle slim you down, and keep you that way
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,
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.
