Publisher's Summary

Stop procrastinating. 
It’s time to jumpstart your weight loss! 
In his instant number-one New York Times best seller The Skinny Rules, celebrity trainer and coach of NBC’s The Biggest Loser Bob Harper delivered the ultimate strategy for healthy, long-term weight loss and "thin maintenance". But what if you have a big event looming - a reunion, wedding, beach vacation, or other special occasion - and need a fast-acting plan to meet your short-term goals? 
Jumpstart to Skinny features 13 short-term rules (no one gets thin on mere suggestions) that will supercharge your weight loss. Taking any confusion or decision making out of the equation, Harper also provides a day-by-day plan for success, including his body-toning "Jumpstart Moves" and deliciously slimming recipes specially designed for your get-skinny needs. 
Jumpstart to Skinny lets you in on the secrets Bob shares with his red-carpet celebrity clients. This is not a marathon diet; it’s a quick sprint to the finish line. And the victory lap comes when you slip into that sexy dress or swimsuit and feel fantastic. Get started today! 
The four-part jumpstart plan to a skinnier you

Your Jumpstart Rules: Thirteen must-follow principles to get you ready for your own "big reveal", including Rule Number One, a precise breakdown of the proper protein/carbohydrate/fat proportions for every meal, and Rule Number Three, which explains why you need to just say no to complex carbs after breakfast during this three-week plan. These are the Rules that Bob Harper and his celebrity clients use to get ready for their big events - and now you’re in on the secrets, too. 
Your Jumpstart Day-by-Day: No decisions, no confusion! Here is the simple, three-week game plan: the food to buy and prepare ahead each week, when and how much to eat each day, and the when and how of your exercise schedule. 
Your Jumpstart Moves: Bob’s unique, 20-minute, at-home exercise routines. From sit-ups, push-ups, and squats to jumping rope, lateral jumps, and simple chair dips, choose one of the seven "packages" of body-toning moves when your day calls for Bob’s "metabolic conditioning". 
Jumpstart Recipes: Cleansing or juice fasting? No way! You need to eat to lose weight, so here are 21 days of slimmingly delicious recipes - including "Peanut Butter and Jelly" Oatmeal, Sweet Potato Hash, Spaghetti Squash Bolognese, Buffalo Chicken Salad, and Bob’s signature Shrimp Skimpy - formulated with your Jumpstart protein/carb/fat proportions and calorie maximums in mind. 
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great book for short tee weight loss and long term good habits

As a single mom of a special needs child I rarely have time to read a book. I sit in cubicle 9-10 hours/day. This book really helped clarify questions about supplements, staying focused,caloric intake, etc...

I am a formal NFL cheerleader and I struggle now in my 40s to maintain my 5'5 130lbs figure. This book is great!!

Oh and his workouts are also awesome! I don't have time for a gym and I use his workouts at least 3x/week.

Not for the faint hearted

I never thought I'd endorse such a very strict plan, but actually as most human beings have no will power and being over weight is becoming a generic human condition, I have to say I think it's a tough but effective way to get you on the right track. The plan is pretty full on (I won't ruin the fun by telling you what you have to do first thing in the morning) and many won't agree with it, but if you have the guts to have a go, it does work and it's great if you just want to get the motivational juices going to continue on a healthy diet plan.
