Publisher's Summary

At last, there’s a nutrition and fitness program that doesn’t require you to develop superhuman willpower, shun entire food groups, or devote your every waking moment to the treadmill.

Body Confidence is a revolutionary approach based on three key nutrition factors that stabilize your blood sugar and keep your body in balance:

  • Eating at consistent meal intervals
  • Absolute certainty in essential nutrient ratio of protein, fat, and carbohydrates
  • Identifying and consuming the right amount of calories per meal

But there’s much more to Body Confidence than when and what you eat. You’ll become a master at:

  • Determining your current metabolism - and then reprogramming it
  • Focusing on body fat percentage rather than body weight
  • Setting measurable, motivating goals (short- and long-term, internal and external)
  • Following a customized, efficient, diverse exercise plan that makes you feel energetic and strong
  • Harnessing the powers of sleep, supplements, water, and stress management, all in perfect sync to optimize your body’s performance.

Body Confidence creator Mark Macdonald knows that weight loss doesn’t happen in a vacuum, and he has made room for “real life” at every stage of this program. Along the way, you’ll be introduced to some of Venice Nutrition’s extraordinary success stories, and learn how to stay on track no matter what life throws at you. Packed with recipes,nutrition guides, exercise journals, and Venice Nutrition’s proven goal-setting tools, Body Confidence walks you through every step of a process that has already changed thousands of lives.

Getting in shape (and staying in shape) no longer has to mean feeling deprived and hungry, living with low energy, being irritable and anxious, or obsessing about food and exercise. There is a way to make looking and feeling your best a permanent way of life.

Changed my life - and killed my cellulite!

Once you get used to figuring out the meals you like and balance for your plan (the website is a must for this so that is another $19/month) this plan will change your life. I prepare a couple weeks worth of soups and chili an freeze it, then fill in with the simple meals in between. The free meal a week keeps you from feeling like you are trapped in a diet loop.

I have struggled with my wieght for 25 years and with this plan, I not only lost the wieght, I feel better and am much more calm in my everyday life.

What sold me on trying this was Chelsea Handler saying it gets rid of cellulite and she wasn't lying. I thought I was done and my body was set for the rest of my life since I am 42 and generally too lazy for all the other plans I've used. No matter how much I lost I still didn't look good because of the cellulite, now my buns and back of my thighs have gone back 10 years.

Game Changer

What did you love best about Body Confidence?

Tools you can use immediately. Helps you to understand why what you did in the past didn't work.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Everyone's stories about reaching their goals was powerful.

Any additional comments?

Anyone who struggles to lose fat or gain muscle or with any body unhappiness including digestion issues MUST read this book. It's one of the few fat loss books that is written use PROVEN SCIENCE...not a fad. You will NOT starve yourself using this plan, you will eat...maybe more than ever before. It truly is a game changing book. I'm grateful I was recommended this book by a friend who's a nutritionist.
