Who would have thought that dry theory could be so interesting?
All relevant details of nutrition physiology are examined and made understood for everyone (in layman’s terms). It’s obvious that the author is an expert in his field, but what is just as important: he succeeds at putting himself in his readers place, so that you never feel like being bombarded with complex facts and scientific data. Reading the book was really fun; I learned a lot. The second half of the book is more personal, since it looks at the psychological aspects of weight loss. Jasper offers helpful tips and strategies to avoid common pitfalls - his writing style is a good mix of empathetic and a little kick in the butt :D The discussed strategies make complete sense, are easy to follow and it was a nice change not having to read the worn out bullshit you find in women’s magazines again. Time will tell if they will work in practice, as personal discipline plays a major role, of course. But it will certainly be much easier with the right toolbox at hand.
This book is definitely my number one.
I’ve been learning about weight loss for quite a while already and thought that I knew everything I needed to know by now. Far from it though, because weight loss is so much more than knowing that you need to eat less.
And that’s what the book is all about. How can I keep my new eating habits in the long run and why haven’t I been successful until now. It covers all the relevant theory, but thanks to the combination with concrete tips and tricks, it never seems like too much. Normally, I’m not a passionate reader, but this book I devoured within two days. I guess that alone speaks for itself!
Right from the start, the chapters really hit the spot and showed me where my mistakes and weaknesses have been in previous attempts to lose weight and how to do it better this time, by actually transforming my weaknesses into strengths.
The step-by-step guide in the end is like a golden ticket to success. I closely followed every single step, which helped tremendously and kept me motivated. Staying motivated has become much easier actually.
Finally, I can only say that this book is a must-read for everyone who wants to lose weight successfully and especially for all those who, like myself, think that they know it all already. This book gives you everything you need for successful weight loss without having to torment yourself. I finally escaped the weight loss trap.
Being a nutritionist and author myself, I can wholeheartedly recommend this book:
Jasper looks at scientific studies from different perspectives and doesn’t just refer to a single source, like many other weight loss guides do.
He uses biochemical background knowledge to explain why it’s harder to lose weight for some people and why some thrive on a low carb diet, while others need more carbohydrates.
All this complex information is conveyed in an easily understandable and practical way.
The best book without yo-yo effect!
This book is perfect for everyone, who has been struggling with weight loss for many years and simply can’t find the reason for the constant failures, just like myself.
I’m a complete amateur in this field, at least when it comes to the theory behind it. I’ve always ducked out of reading dry theory, because I kept thinking that losing weight can’t be that difficult. And thanks to this book, it really isn’t anymore. The theory is explained vividly and actually not boring at all. It forms the basis for all following tips and tricks, which are so valuable. I finally know how to motivate myself and how to tackle my weight loss issue, because this book really has a solution for every problem.
