Publisher's Summary

What does it feel like to strike it rich in the world of health and wellness? Does it mean improved sleep? What about being able to walk longer, enjoy a day out at the lake, or just keep up with the family on a lazy weekend? Health is wealth, no way around it. Striking it rich in health is always on your terms. What would better health mean to you, right now? Hold on to that answer, because this book will help you get to that destination.

So, let's get to the point: are you getting rich...or finding yourself struggling to keep your head above water? What does your health profit and loss statement really look like at the moment?

If things aren't as rosy as you would like them to be, you're not alone. For decades, the health and fitness industry has been promising you riches, but giving you pocket change. You've probably run into things like, "Lose 20 pounds in 20 days", "Guaranteed six-pack in six weeks", and "Drop three dress sizes in four weeks!" These are just some of the sneaky slogans that are siphoning away valuable health dollars, sometimes right before your very eyes!

It's old.

It's tiresome.

It changes now.

A Missing Piece, Now Revealed

Mainstream fitness programs have one major flaw: they only address one part of the greater health equation. It's all physical, with little variation: just move a little more, eat a little less, and you'll be on your way to a huge health jackpot.

Very hard to listen to

Stressful to listen to- narration is loud and sounds like I’m being yelled at! Couldn’t get through more than a few minutes

Very motivational!

Wow! This is so much more than a fitness or weight-loss book. I found myself rewinding a lot so that I could jot down notes that I wanted to remember. One of my favorites. "You get what you tolerate. In your career. In your relationships. In your health."

Amazing insights in the Book

The author really has put some serious study into how we are our own worst enemy when it comes to weight loss. Being a guy, I particularly like the sports analogies, though they are presented in such a way that anyone will benefit, even the non-sports minded folks. This book really helped me focus on what is important in my life and has set me on a path to being the best me I can be.

Must Read Book

This is exactly what I needed to get my mind focused on losing weight the right way. It helped me understand how to focus on my lifestyle and not my temporary goal.

Noisy

Jay should really have forked out to pay someone to narrate. I really wanted to listen to this, but cringed the whole way through as I felt yelled at and his voice is not what I would call soothing. I might have to buy the physical book as I can't focus on the content as the scratchy yelly voice is just too much. I have it on the lowest possible volume setting as well. If I turn it down another notch it will be muted. I'm sure there are some good messages but I can't concentrate on them.
