Book Review: The 7 Principles of Fat Burning by Eric Berg, DC

The 7 Principles of Fat Burning

The 7 Principles of Fat Burning is the handbook to the sensational Berg Diet that has empowered thousands of people to get healthy, lose weight and keep it off. It shows how to activate your fat-burning hormones with a tailor-made eating and exercise plan for your body type.

The 7 Principles is a highly practical book that provides clear explanations-aided by dozens of charts and illustrations-of the principles of healthy weight loss. Easy-to-understand health and nutrition information and simple tests to determine your correct body type are the keys to its success. Knowledge is power and The 7 Principles of Fat Burning gives dieters the power to take command by eating the healthy diet that activates the fat-burning hormones for their body type.

For years people have been told to lose weight to be healthy. The truth is, you need to get healthy to lose weight. The Seven Principles of Fat Burning shows you how. Dr. Berg thoroughly educates readers and puts them right where they should be: in charge of their own weight.

Losing weight isn't easy for me! I've needed to lose weight for many years and find some success here and there but never anything that will keep the weight off for good. I've given up soda, ice cream and eating past a certain time of night, lots of processed foods and eaten more fruits and vegetables and not lost one pound. It's discouraging, to say the least. So then I've allowed those bad habits to creep back in figuring that it didn't matter anyway. 

When I saw this book up for review, I jumped at the chance to read yet another book about losing weight. Something about this book just seemed different to me and it was! I've heard some of this before but there's lots of new information to me and I like the way Dr. Berg presents it.

He tells you the four different body types and the best way to eat and exercise for each one. There's Adrenal, Ovary, Thyroid and Liver. I was then able to take a quiz to determine my body type. He also includes pictures for each body type so it wasn't hard to figure out which one I resemble the most and, sure enough, after taking the quiz, it matched. 

He talks about triggers and blockers and there are lots of illustrations and charts to help understand what he's saying. He includes menus and recipes and has a Q&A section. The difference in his approach is to get healthy first and then the weight will come off so it's not just a diet but rather a lifestyle change.

Now, the big question: Am I doing it? Not currently. It's not an easy plan to follow. I have incorporated some of his suggestions and plan to give his program a try. I highly recommend this book to anyone that's looking to feel healthier and lose weight.

My Rating=5 stars
