9780062316783: The 20-Minute Body: 20 Minutes, 20 Days, 20 Inches

The former Biggest Loser star and celebrity trainer presents a high intensity workout and eating plan that delivers big results in just 20 minutes a day.

From his days as a trainer on The Biggest Loser, Bret Hoebel knows that when people log hours on a treadmill, they’ll lose weight. But he also knows that most of his clients don’t have the schedule or the desire to spend that much time at the gym. And the truth is—the number of minutes you spend working out isn’t the key to weight loss: intensity is.

Time and again, Brett meets clients who’ve been making the same mistakes—not only are they focused on the clock, but they’re also concentrating on fat burn and pounds lost as markers of success. And with a fat-first focus on losing weight, plateaus come quickly and often.

But it’s not about fat, it’s about muscle.

In The 20-Minute Body, Brett explains why the key to long-term weight loss is building muscle. The more lean muscle your body has, the more calories your body will burn at rest. Metabolic muscle is the secret to fast metabolism. And all you need is 20 minutes a day to create it.

Additionally, when you focus on inches, not pounds, you’ll find that you fit into your clothes better and love the shape of your body. Weight is misleading—muscle weighs more than fat, but it takes up far less room. So throw away the scale and invest in a tape measure to track your success. The 20-Minute Body will help you lose 20 inches—from around your stomach, hips, thighs, and arms—in just 20 days.

All it takes is 20 minutes of exercise, paired with 20-minute meals that are focused on nutrient quality, not calorie counts. Brett offers readers sample meal plans and recipes for meals, snacks, and desserts the whole family will love—all of which can be thrown together in 20 minutes or less.

Review:

“In The 20-Minute Body, Brett Hoebel shows you how to workout smarter, minimize kitchen time, and mentally prepare yourself for long-term fat loss success. This intelligently designed, easy-to-implement plan to become lean, fit, and healthy blows that time excuse out the window!” ( JJ Virgin, bestselling author of The Virgin Diet and Sugar Impact Diet)

“You know why I like Brett Hoebel? Because he thinks like I do. Brett’s program is unique, effective, and gets down to the root of the issues many people have with exercise. He covers all the essential elements to creating long-lasting health, energy and success.” ( Tony Horton, Creator of P90X and author of The Big Picture)

“What I have always respected about Brett’s approach is it’s realistic. He gets people results in the least amount of time possible. Most importantly, this program is do-able: simple, fun, rewarding and effective.” ( Chalene Johnson, bestselling author of Push and creator of Turbo Fire, Turbo Jam, PiYo, and Hustle)

“It’s a challenge to stay consistent in fitness with a very busy schedule between my family and career, but these short 20-minute workouts get real results. And Brett’s recipes are a pleasant surprise -- they go far beyond ‘trainer food!’” ( Donatella Arpaia, Iron Chef judge, restaurateur, and author of Donatella Cooks)

“Brett’s guidance and knowledge of the human body not only helped me achieve my weight loss goals...it gave me the tools I needed to keep the weight off. Four years later I’m still maintaining my weight loss & Brett’s stamp on my life remains evident in the continued results.” ( Olivia Ward, winner of The Biggest Loser, Season 11)

“What is so unique and powerful about Brett is his ability to reach folks with his knowledge, dedication and empathy. The 20 Minute Body is a must-read for all of us who want to live our best life!” ( Partha Nandi, MD FACP, Host and Founder, Ask Dr Nandi)

From the Back Cover:

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.
