Less time. More results.
It seems like diet and fitness experts keep upping the ante—asking us to push ourselves harder than ever to get results. From cleansing and fasting to extreme, time-consuming workouts—since when did getting healthy become a full-time job?
From his days as a trainer on The Biggest Loser, Brett Hoebel knows firsthand the struggles people face when it comes to weight loss—including lack of time. In The 20-Minute Body, he shares a revolutionary plan for weight loss based on the latest science of fitness, which shows us that the most effective way to burn fat and lose inches is to have a well-rounded diet and work out in short, efficient bursts.
Brett identifies the biggest myths surrounding weight loss. First, that the best way to work out is to log lots of cardio hours. False. Recent studies prove that long cardio workouts are not effective: short sessions of high-intensity exercise burn more fat and build more muscle. When you train this way, you build metabolic muscle—lean muscle mass that helps your body burn calories even at rest. Metabolic muscle is the secret to a fast metabolism.
Brett also debunks the myth that counting calories and cutting carbohydrates are effective ways to lose weight. Super-restrictive, low-calorie diets backfire and actually cause the body to store fat, not burn it. And carbs? Contrary to what most people think, carbs aren't evil. In fact, they are your body's favorite source of energy. It's not about giving up carbs—it's about choosing the right ones.
With three different diet and fitness levels, a variety of high-intensity workouts, and delicious recipes that take 20 minutes or less to prepare, The 20-Minute Body is a full lifestyle plan for getting healthy and losing weight. Give Brett 20 days, and he will give you back your body—minus 20 inches.
