I would lose a few pounds, start to feel good about myself but then suddenly gain the weight back.Mike's diet and exercise information along with another book Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress is what finally worked for me.My girlfriend from college days was in the same shape as me. She also followed this same plan and we both lost 40 pounds between July and December.We are not just lighter but feel more toned and clothes shopping is exciting again.Before I found this book I was starting to think there was nothing I could do at my age to look and feel better, but finding this was a God-send that changed my life for the better.
AshleyThis is without a doubt the most detailed book I have ever seen about staying healthy as we get older. Everything I think about is covered when I look it up.I am one of those people who tried so many different diets and special supplements. Time and money wasted, but no lasting results.In just the first month following the guidelines in this book, I am seeing results.From Bruce DI got the book in January and I have lost 14 in just under 8 weeks. Not only that, the information on morning stretch routines has really helped my back.I have had back problems for years, but now it does not bother me nearly as much. Give me a few more months and I will send some pictures.Steve W.I found this book in February. I only wish I had found it years ago. I wasted so much time on diet pills and weight loss plans you see advertised on TV. I guesslike many people I believed what the promised in the ads. But I never got any lasting results.I finally learned that real results require a few changes to my lifestyle.I did not know where to start or who to believe. This book was highly recommended so I got it and spent 4 days reading it before I started doing anything new.Now 3 months later, I am 30 lbs lighter but I look more buff in the mirror. Not bad for a 44 year old guy who has been overweight since soon after college.Wanda H.I have been unhappy with my weight and overall health for at least a decade. I could lose weight if I did one of those prepared meal plans, but the weight never stayed off. After a few months it seemed I had to eat less to keep the weight off and the moment I started eating normal food again, I would gain all my weight back.Now after reading this fitness after 40 book, I understand what was happening to me. I also now realize taking the weight off and keeping it off does not mean living at the gym. I spend 1 hour exercising three times per week doing the "30-3" plan and eat 4 times per day now. I have lost 25 pounds.Ricardo E.I used to go to the gym 6 days a week. I never saw me getting much better. Much time but not good results. Now I eat better and only go to gym 3 times every week. I am seeing much better results now in only 2 months than I saw doing what I used to do for 2 years. It really helps when you learn the right way to do something and stop wasting time getting no place"Susan W.After I hit 45 it seemed I could not lose weight no matter what I did. I was also more tired and irritable much of the time. I got this book as a present and learned about the things that add together to make health and weight control harder as we pass 35. I am happy to say I am losing weight, feeling better, looking better and it was easier than I thought it would be.Jim R.I learned about the book when I saw it advertised at OurTime.comSince I plan to return to the dating world after many years alone I thought it would be a good time to get in better shape to look and feel my best before entering this new stage in my life. So far I am pleased with the results. Keep Your Personal Success Stories Coming ..."The doctor says I might not be here today if not for my weekly fitness regimen ...
