Physical Fitness XBX 12-Minute Plan for Women is a short book that provides an exercise program for women who are over 20. Each age group has a suggested length they should spend on each workout. Useful information on reasons why someone should be fit, weight control, and how exercising can change how you feel physically are also provided. In addition to tips, there are also charts that provide which exercises a woman needs to complete and how many for how long. There is also a useful chart to fill out goals and progress.
This book was a quick and interesting read. One of my favorite parts of the book was that it gave pointers on how to exercise by not exerting oneself and taking it slowly. Another part I loved was that they cautioned people, who may not be able to exercise, to consult with their doctor. It is important to note this because not everyone is on the same health or abilities level. Exercise should not hurt, and people should stretch beforehand as well as take it slow. That is why the author suggests a certain amount of days on each workout as well as not trying to get all the exercises done in the amount of time if you struggle with it in the beginning. I think it is great to tell people to slowly build up their workout routine rather than trying to rush and possibly harm themselves. While it seems like there are a lot of exercises to do in a short amount of time, the book does state to do them at your own pace and continue to work toward the goal. Do not get overwhelmed or be intimidated. It is important to not hurt or strain yourself.
I also like that there are charts to show you what exercises to do, how long to do them, and how many to do. The chart was a little confusing at first but easily understood with the explanation. The pictures in the book are very useful. Not many people, myself included, would know what some of the exercises were. Additionally, with each increase in the charts, new steps are added to the exercises. The illustrations show exactly how the exercise should be completed and really help with any confusion. Finally, if you have a physical copy of the book, it gives you spaces to write goals and where you are. So if you have a specific goal to meet weight wise, you can write it in the book.
There were a couple of things I would have liked to see. For instance, the author mentions how research indicates certain aspects of health and exercise, but it would give it more credibility with references. The book mentioned healthy eating, as such, I think it would have been better to include more detail on this topic. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who would be interested in looking to help with their sedentary lifestyle.

Bodybuilding for Weight Loss seeks to help people not only lose weight but sculpt their body as well. What has been your experience with bodybuilding and weight loss that lead you to writing a book?
I have been an avid weightlifter for over two years now which has allowed me to lose over 100 pounds of fat.
In this book you seek to change the way people look at food. What is one common misconception that people have about food while on a diet?
People normally think that they can’t enjoy all their favorite foods while on a diet but they can as long as the foods are organic. For example in the mornings I would recommend eating organic fruits, vegetables, and meats to jump-start the metabolism.
What is your daily workout routine like?
I usually wake up at 6:00 am, eat an organic breakfast, and then off I go to the gym. When I get to the gym I start by spending 30 minutes on the treadmill, and a variety of weightlifting exercises.
I felt like you brought a lot of your passion and experience into this book. How did you first get started in bodybuilding?
I first started bodybuilding with my brother. He was always into fitness so I finally went to the gym with him one day because I wanted to see a change in my physique.

Why do you think that weight loss with body building is the best way to lose weight?
You really can’t have one without the other once someone begins a bodybuilding regimen they will shed unwanted fat and build muscle mass especially when they apply what I teach in my book Bodybuilding for Weight Loss.
Are You Ready to Uncover the Secrets to Getting the Body You’ve Always Dreamed of? This guide will show you how to lose weight and sculpt your body into the toned shape you have always wanted.

Bodybuilding for Weight Loss: Facts About Weight Loss Through Body Building That You Did Not Know About
Want to lose weight and look great but don’t know where to start? We’ve all heard that to get that perfect summer body we need to exercise right and eat well – but where to begin? How do we get there? Is simply jogging and eating a few more vegetables enough?
Bodybuilding for Weight Loss by James Eaton seeks to answer those questions. Eaton takes the workout regimen and diet typically used by bodybuilders and shows how anyone can lose weight and look great by following their lead. Eaton organizes and breaks the information down into digestible chunks that even those with no gym experience can understand and apply. While occasionally he jumps from one topic to the next a bit too frequently you can get lost in all the information he presents. His book is a solid building block for learning how to lose weight through bodybuilding.
Eaton starts by giving a rapid-fire history of bodybuilding, tracing its roots from ancient Egypt and Greece to the 20th century when professional bodybuilding competitions really came into their own. After that historical introduction though – it’s all business.
Taking a holistic approach, Eaton stresses the importance of coupling appropriate exercises with the right foods. To see results, you’ve got to give your body what it needs and then work it appropriately. Eaton walks through the raw foods consumed by bodybuilders, such as onions, apples, and brown rice, and explains why each is such a great option for building muscle and losing fat. However, it’s not just about what you eat, it’s when you eat as well. He points out that eating certain foods before or after working out will help build muscle faster. For example, eating foods higher in carbohydrates just before getting your pump on will keep you powered throughout your work out. But, those same carbs eaten just before bed will simply turn to sugar in your body, undoing your hard work at the gym. It’s this sort of insight, Eaton’s explanations of the reasons behind his recommendations, that really keep you reading.
Healthy eating is only one side of the coin; it’s got to be balanced with aerobic exercise and weightlifting to really see the body you desire. Eaton doesn’t leave us in the dark here either: He provides us with step by step instructions for several weightlifting exercises and walks through how to perform them correctly. Barbell bench presses, seated dumbbell press, bar curls, and even the Arnold press (yes, named after that Arnold) – it’s all here. And for those of us who’ve never picked up free weights before, the pictures and texts are easy to follow and make you want to grab some soup cans and try them out.
The book provides valuable insight and a clear path to losing weight through exercise and diet. Eaton’s passion for the subject clearly shines through.
