Forget “losing weight”—you want to lose fat…and if you want to know how to do it as quickly as possible without losing muscle…and without doing hours and hours of grueling cardio every week…then you want to read this book. Here's the deal: If your goal is to get or stay lean and maintain your cardiovascular health, you don’t have to “pound the pavement” or grind out long, boring cardio sessions. Ever. That’s right… · No tedious jogging… · No droning away on one of the hamster wheels in the gym… · And no sacrificing hours and hours every week just to get a “six pack.” You also don’t have to subject yourself to restrictive “diets” that feel more like punishment than self-improvement. What if I told you that you could dramatically transform your body eating foods you actually like…every day…7 days per week? What if all you had to do to lose fat and not muscle was follow a handful of flexible dietary guidelines…not starve and deprive yourself? And what if I promised you could forever break free of the anxieties most people associate with “dieting” and make it something you can enjoy as a lifestyle instead? Well, by the end of this book, you’ll know exactly what you need to do to get a lot more out of a lot less exercise…and a lot more delicious food…than you ever thought possible. Here’s a “sneak peek” of some of the things this book will teach you… · The biggest diet lie you’ve been told (and probably believe) that makes losing fat way harder than it has to be. · How the four “tiers” of dieting ultimately determine your results: energy balance, macronutrient balance, food choices, and nutrient timing. · Why “clean eating” is overrated and guarantees nothing in the way of losing fat and building muscle…and what you should do instead. · How to create flexible dieting plans that allow you to get the body you want eating the foods you love. · How much cardio you should do to lose weight and how much is too much and why. · 5 simple eating eating habits that keep you lean, healthy, and happy…without having to obsess over every calorie you eat. · The ultimate guide to high-intensity interval cardio—the absolute best type of cardio for burning fat as quickly as possible. · How to use “fasted cardio” to lose fat…and stubborn fat in particular…even faster. · 7 powerful cardio workouts that will help you burn fat and not muscle in less than 30 minutes per day (and you don’t even have to do them every day!). · And a whole lot more! Imagine...just 12 weeks from now...being constantly complimented on how you look and asked what the heck you're doing to make such startling progress... Imagine enjoying the added benefits of high energy levels, no aches and pains, better spirits, and knowing that you're getting healthier every day...

Based on the PBS documentary by Ken Burns, Erik Ewers, and Christopher Loren Ewers airing September 25. On September 30, 1889, W.W. Mayo and his sons Will and Charlie performed the very first operation at a brand-new Catholic hospital in Rochester, Minnesota. It was called Saint Marys. The hospital arose out of the devastation of a tornado that had struck the town six years earlier. After the storm, Mother Alfred Moes of the Sisters of Saint Francis told the Mayos that she had a vision of building a hospital that would “become world renowned for its medical arts.” Based on the film by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, The Mayo Clinic: Faith, Hope, Science chronicles the history of this unique organization, from its roots as an unlikely partnership between a country doctor and a Franciscan order of nuns to its position today as a worldwide model for patient care, research, and education. Featuring more than 400 compelling archival and modern images, as well as the complete script from the film, the book demonstrates how the institution’s remarkable 150-year history continues to inspire the way medicine is practiced there today. In addition, a series of case studies reveals patients, doctors, and nurses in their most private moments as together they face difficult diagnoses and embark on uncertain treatments. The film and this companion book tell the story of an organization that has managed to stay true to its primary value—the needs of the patient come first. Together, they make an important contribution to the critical discussions about the delivery of health care today in America…and the world.
