INTRO

I wrote this book because there is no magic pill or special diet that work without exercise. Exercise, or
what I call movement, uses calories for fuel. It is very hard to keep the weight off without movement.
Muscles help burn calories through movement – the more you move the more muscle you will gain. The
more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn. If you eat the proper calories and continue to
burn calories, your body will begin to burn fat for fuel rather than calories. The more fat you lose, the
healthier you will be.

This book has a number of different movements for anyone and everyone to use without getting bored.
So, eat well and get moving!
