Book Review - Turbocharged

About the Book
TurboCharged By Dian Griesel, Ph.D. and Tom Griesel According to these boomer-generation authors, every diet to date is destined to deliver loss of lean muscle mass, moodiness, disappointment and failure. Instead, Dian and Tom provide an exciting new roadmap using a unique 8-step program that has been called "the Holy Grail of Fat Loss" and even the "Fountain of Youth."

Building on an exotic car metaphor, their system requires no strenuous exercise, supplements or special equipment. They show readers how to get on the road to eliminate excess body fat fast and forever.

Within 3 days the program promises to: begin training your body to use excess body fat for energy; show everyday activities that will quickly accelerate fat-loss; teach mini-exercises requiring only 3-5 minutes each day that will trigger fat-burning while strengthening muscle; explain the ideal foods and how to eat them to burn your body fat fast; eliminate any related diet anxiety or moodiness; prove that you are truly getting younger; and, provide easy ways to maintain your new lean and healthy body with minimal effort for life.

An excerpt from the Foreword by Fred Pescatore, MD, MPH, CCN, author of The Hampton's Diet says, "TurboCharged doesn't bog down the reader with lots of science. Instead, it tells you what to do, when to do it, and if you follow the very simple guidelines, you too will be dropping fat fast, leaning out and attaining your goal of a lower body-fat percentage, decreases in inches and a younger metabolic age. TurboCharged is a system designed with genetics in mind and based on sound science. With a combination like that, you can't fail." Sister and brother, Dian and Tom Griesel have spent the last 30 years working with renowned scientific researchers while studying health, exercise, longevity and stress management. Both are in their 50s according to the calendar, yet can prove that they are not only leaner and stronger but are now metabolically teenagers as a result of the TurboCharged steps they share with readers.

TurboCharged is a simple, practical, easy-to-implement holistic lifestyle program for everyone. Testimonials from 35 to 80 year olds abound! Early readers comment... Harvey Schiller, PhD., Brig. Gen, USAF, Ret, Former CEO, United States Olympic Committee says, "Finally you can toss the exercise DVDs, failed diet programs, useless equipment and take control of your body! TurboCharged is what we've all been waiting for: a simple approach to better living and a powerful new lifestyle." Harvard psychiatrist, Srini Pillay, MD, best-selling author of Life Unlocked says, "For dieters, from both a psychological and medical perspective--this one's the Holy Grail."

My Take on the Book
This book takes the idea of a diet in a different direction. While I have not dieted much, I will say that I enjoy trying my best to eat healthy. It is definitely not easy and you have to work hard to be able to do it, but this book lays out some very easy steps that all can follow to move one's eating habits into a much better path. This book is quite motivational and the ideas that the authors share were easy to comprehend, follow and implement into one's life. At the same time this book also shatters some of the myths and problems that one may have with the media's portrayal of nutrition today and what one must do to be able to stay healthy. This book was a blast of fresh air and it definitely is one that I would recommend to any and all that are looking for a new way to lose weight in the new year!
