Bob Harper has been a trainer on the hit television series The Biggest Loser for quite sometime now, so he is certainly somebody who knows a lot about losing weight. Bob has released the book titled Jumpstart to Skinny and, in it, Bob reveals how he has a skinny formula.
Among the rules of the formula are, "Take Control with Proper Proportions—40/40/20: The 40/40/20 plan is my way of making sure you get the right amount of the three essential macronutrients in your diet: protein, carbohydrates, and fat. Without them, you’d be in trouble. Without them in the right amounts, you’ll stay fat, and you’ll never get into that dress, tux, Speedo, or bikini."
As well as, "Cut back on calories. Then cut back again: Brace yourself for the truth: for this diet to work on time (three weeks!), you should eat 800 calories a day if you’re female and 1,200 calories a day if you’re male. Most diet experts and motivators prefer to keep people in the dark about calorie restriction, but they all know the truth. They dress it up in pretty prose but never tell you the truth about the number of calories it takes (or doesn’t take) to meet your goals."
There is obviously plenty more to be said about his diet and fitness advice, to get you into the best shape of your life and you can find further information about Bob Harper's skinny formula and his book Jumpstart to Skinny over at today.com.
