Rent Get with the Program: Getting Real About Your Weight, Health, and Emotional Well-Being
In GET WITH THE PROGRAM, Bob Greene becomes his readers' personal trainer, offering a solid physical, emotional and mental workout. From the first page, Greene makes it clear that GET WITH THE PROGRAM is not a diet book. Greene wants his readers to get real about their bodies and the changes they want to make in their lives. His exercise approach combines aerobic activities to stimulate the metabolism, and weight training for building muscle. No diet is given, but a sensible outline of healthy eating is included. Photographs and detailed instructions make following his suggestions for diet and exercise easy. Greene's plan calls for a long-term commitment to healthy living and setting personal, noncompetitive goals with the help of worksheets and questionnaires provided in the book. His continual encouragement and no-nonsense approach makes this the ideal book for people who have major weight issues, as well as those who are only looking to lose a few pounds. Greene shows a real gift for connecting with his audience, and his writing never seems pedantic or overly simplistic. His attention to the psychological aspects of overeating is sensitive and insightful, which may be why he was Oprah Winfrey's longtime personal trainer and continues to be a frequent guest on her talk show.
