The story of Nick's (or DR Nick as he absurdly refers to himself at restaurants and on his t-shirts - big deal, he's a doctor) liquid diet weight loss was interesting. The majority of the book is filled with bland and not that motivational advice for losing weight. Nick is obviously a bit of a narcissist. I lost count of the number of times he talked about how media and fat people everywhere are interested in interviewing/emailing with/being inspired by him. At one point, he asked whether he might be addicted to the attention. You think? His advice is often overly simple and not particularly useful. To the question of how can you afford to work out 1-2 hours, 7 days a week, he offers "How can you not afford to do it?" To the question of how one can decide not to leave your job and focus on weight loss, he offers, again, "How can you not afford to do it?" His more specific advice isn't very new or innovative: cut down calories, limit carbs, work out, etc. In the end, this book is about Dr. Nick, and the advice part is really just window dressing.

The perfect motivation you need!

It is a journey you're taking listening to this audio book. The same journey Dr. Nick had to go through to change his looks, his health condition and his life. The tape has information about different diets and ways to lose weight, ways to help you on your way to your weight loss journey. But I think the most important thing about this tape is that it motivates you like no other source I've ever came across.
