Losing has never felt better than with Jillian Michaels, the female fitness guru on Network Nine's hit show The Biggest Loser, who presents a unique and comprehensive health and fitness program that will keep the pounds off for good.

Jillian Michaels knows a thing or two about getting people to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. In her new book, Winning by Losing, Jillian offers a comprehensive and integrated program that provides readers with a clear–cut path to total health. Unlike other popular diet books, Winning by Losing works from the inside out, combining a behavioral makeover with a unique diet plan and a no–gimmick workout.

The book is divided into three parts: "Self," "Science," and "Sweat." "Self" focuses on behavior patterns, and shows how unchecked urges and emotional roadblocks lead to unhealthy eating habits. Jillian will help readers address and overcome these issues completely, an accomplishment that is the first and most crucial step towards leading a healthier lifestyle. "Science" is the book's nutritional facet, in which Jillian teaches readers how to create their own personalized diets. This section will help readers identify their own unique biochemical and metabolic needs, arming them with the knowledge they need to formulate a diet plan far more effective than generic ones offered in other books. "Sweat" utilizes Jillian's expertise to give readers an integrated workout program that combines the most effective elements of different training styles. It doesn't promise to be easy – but it works and lasts.

While there are several recognizable men at the top of the fitness guru chain, including Bill Phillips and Jorge Cruise, this category has yet to see a new female occupy the spotlight. Jillian Michaels is attractive, knowledgeable, and dynamic, and is the perfect candidate to be the next big thing in fitness/health books.

I love The Biggest Loser. It's one of those shows I watch religiously, so I decided to try one of the trainer's first book. Michaels does a good job of addressing the different issues of weight loss (your mentality, your nutrition, and your exercise regime). I really did like the section about making sure your mentally prepared for what's ahead and that you know your worth it. There was a nice description of a lot of exercises in the back of the book which detailed how to do each one and what muscle groups are worked. But that's about it. The rest of the book is the same stuff you find in every exercise book. I wouldn't say this book is worth buying. It's not a bad read. It had useful information but nothing you couldn't find by searching the Internet for free.read more
