Canadian health and fitness expert James Fell shares his no-holds-barred approach to losing weight and staying in shape--based on science, straight talk and a healthy dose of humour.
Remember the story of the tortoise and the hare? The tortoise--slow and steady--won the race, right? So why, when it comes to weight loss and fitness, does everyone want to be the hare, speeding toward the finish line in a desperate attempt to drop pounds in record time? In Lose It Right , fitness consultant and writer James Fell offers the cold, hard truth about what you really need to do to lose weight and get fit.
In his trademark irreverent style, Fell offers a slow, steady and science-based approach to improving health that will motivate and inspire readers. He explains the critical role of exercise in adopting healthy eating behaviours, and provides a step-by-step road map for integrating exercise and making dietary changes. Through the Virtuous Cycle, a leveled eating and exercise program, Fell shows you how to gradually transform your health, the way your body performs, and the way you look.
With its big-picture approach to lifestyle planning, and its insistence that there are no quick fixes or miracle cures, Lose It Right will appeal to readers who suspect the tortoise was right: slow and steady really does win the race.

I found the book to be targeted towards people who are greatly overweight and struggle to incorporate any kind of physical activity into their lives. Although I am not in this category I did pick up some good tips. Funny and no BS (unlike the vast majority of health & fitness books).
