Publisher's Summary

The world-renowned fitness coach on the hit TV show The Biggest Loserpresents his winning approach to lasting weight loss by showing how to get at the root of your overeating problem, followed by a nutritionally savvy diet and unique exercise plan.

On The Biggest Loser, Bob Harper gives contestants the practical tools and psychological insights they need to get into the best shape of their lives. The key to his success is the emotional connection he makes with each participant, and he brings that same spirit to Are You Ready!

Harper starts with a four-step strategy for getting at the root of negative thought patterns and destructive behaviors, replacing both with a clear way to build self-worth and confidence. With these tools in place, people are empowered to make real, lasting changes in their lives. In an easy-to-follow eating plan, he provides lists of foods that are nutrient-dense and naturally low in calories, more than 20 sample menus, and tips on eating on the run, in restaurants, and on vacation. His fitness plan is geared to making exercise an integral part of daily life with workouts (ranging from 20 to 60 minutes) based on training techniques that tone and strengthen, burn calories, and reshape the body.

Woven throughout Are You Ready! are true-life success stories that will keep readers engaged and motivated; bulleted tips, tools, and coping strategies; and sidebars debunking common myths about food and fitness. Whether your goal is losing 10 pounds or 100, you will find Harper's message inspiring and his methods a proven path to finally achieving your dream of weight loss and fitness.

    "This is a must must read"

    I have never felt the need to write a review on any book,until I read this one,it is a must read for anyone who wants to know why none of the other diets have not worked,as I went with my lab top to the coffee shop,I thought I would start to listen to his book,two hours and eight minutes later I was still at the coffee shop,as it came to an end,I knew I would be listening to this again and again, what a great read and his voice ,well,you could listen to him talk all day,Yes,I think I am ready ....

    "A little fluffy"

    This was a little too 'it's not your fault you're fat' for me... too much fluff and hand-holding. I suppose it would work for some people, but not my style.

    "Motivational"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Although I enjoyed listening to Are You Ready, I don't think it really has any original material. I mean that I've read/heard it all before. That being said....I do need to hear it again and again. I'm giving this book an overall rating of 4 stars because the PDF file that comes with it is very helpful. The list of food and the menus are similar to other plans, but the pictures of how to do the exercises are easier for me to follow than other examples I've seen.

    "Loved it, NO BS just tells it like it is....GO BOB"

    Bob lays it all out for you and his .pdf file gives you a picture of all the workout moves, plus the grocery list and the sample meals.. I'm getting started today and I will keep listening to this book for motivation..

    "Quick Listen/but worthwhile!"

    I have watched Bob Harper on the Biggest Loser and always thought his approach was always a bit "soft" for me but decided to purchase this audiobook anyway. I am glad I did. I listened to the first part, taking notes on an old envelope as I drove down the road (not safe... I know!!) Decided that I would purchase the Kindle version for reference.
    I am taking each of the recommended steps one at a time and working through them.

    "Awesome, Awesome, Awesome"

    I love this book. I have been a trainer for over 5 years now and this book has made me rethink many of my philosophies as a trainer. Bob is a big hero of mine and I think all trainers should hear what he has to say about fitness and health.
