There are many different weight loss programs on the market that you can work with. Some of them will be restrictive. Some will take away all the carbs that you are allowed to eat. Others will take away the fats that you can eat. All of them will tell you which foods you are allowed to eat and which ones you need to avoid and they will make the dieter feel guilty when they slip up. The food points system is entirely different. The points are set up to help you to learn how to make smart choices when you are hungry. But you are still allowed to have something sweet or a splurge on occasion. No foods are off limit, but the points make it easier to make the healthy choices that you need. This guidebook will take some time to discuss the food points system and how it works for you. Some of the topics that we will discuss in this guidebook concerning the food points system include: •Beginning your weight loss journey •What are food points and how do they work •Calculating your daily food points allowance •Your shopping list •A 30-day meal plan •Weight loss tips and tricks •Reasons why you are not losing weight •Do not stop losing weight •And questions you may have about this diet plan When you are ready to finally start losing weight without having too many restrictions on what you can eat, make sure to check out this guidebook and learn more about the food points system.

The former fitness editor of Men's Health magazine presents the ultimate no-excuses workout book for time-pressed men and women at every fitness level. For most people, the hardest hurdle to overcome in following a fitness regimen is simply finding the time to do it. But as this book shows, it is possible to burn fat, build muscle, and stay fit--no matter how much (or little) time one has! That's the promise fitness expert Myatt Murphy makes in this cutting-edge new exercise guide--the first book that offers a wide range of workouts catered to any schedule. Workouts are organized by how many days a week individuals have to exercise, and subdivided into 10-, 20-, 30-, 45-, and 60-minute exercise blocks. There are four variations on each of the above regimens--one for building lean muscle, one for weight loss, one for muscle power, and one that gives the best of all three. All in all, there are 120 workout choices, each specifically created to match the exerciser's current goals! Murphy shows how to complete any workout in a time-efficient way and how to compensate for limited time with different exercises that will keep muscles challenged. More than 250 photographs illustrate the exercises, and sound nutritional tips round out this all-new approach to fitness--destined to be the workout bible for countless busy people.
