An easy and straightforward way to achieve healthy weight loss, this groundbreaking guide shows how just one hour of exercise a week can turn into a lifetime of wellbeing.

We're all aware of the ways today's modern lifestyle takes a toll on our health--not enough time means fast food trumps nutritious meals and the couch wins over the treadmill. But did you know that just twenty minutes three days per week is all the time you need to burn away belly fat and get your health back on track? The trick: It has to be the right kind of exercise.

Based on ten years of scientific research at the University of New South Wales, Belly Fat Breakthrough shows how, by incorporating a simple interval training routine and delicious Mediterranean eating plan, you can shed--and keep off--that stubborn excess belly fat. With simple, easy-to-follow guidelines, Dr. Stephen Boutcher explains how to apply exercise, healthy eating, and stress management in a practical, easy-to-follow program that will overhaul your bad habits. And you'll see the difference in just six weeks.

Too much belly fat increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and research has shown that most types of diet and exercise won't help you lose it. At last there is a solution. Belly Fat Breakthrough will make you rethink your attitude to getting and staying healthy. It's not a diet--it's a lifestyle revolution.

I borrowed this book after hearing the lead researcher/author give a talk on a podcast. I am impressed with his depth of knowledge around metabolism, fat loss, and interval training. However, where the book falls short is when he goes outside his realm of expertise. Firstly, he gives nutrition and lifestyle advice (stress management, sleep, etc.) that seems less well-vetted than his exercise knowledge. There are more grand statements without as much evidence, a sure sign of dogma hiding in the guise of science. It doesn't mean that it's BAD advice, I'm just not sure he's giving the nuanced opinion of a true expert in these topics. He is also not an expert in helping people make lifestyle changes, and while there is a clear plan laid out, there is no troubleshooting for helpling someone adopt that plan. And this, after all, is the real challenge of lasting change. You can tell someone to eat whole foods, but do they know how to cook them? Do they feel competent at the grocery store? Are they mired in emotional and psychological issues that make eating more complicated? The author does not try to solve these dilemmas, which is perhaps good as it is not his area of study. However, without support for such challenges and other habits like them, I think it would be difficult for many to make use of the information included.
