In this instance, I don’t think he did.
I, like the rest of the world at the moment, am doing what I can to keep busy. So I am buying loads of books about fitness and mindfulness etc. Bit of a reset for me.
I got this book as it got some great reviews and was interested to see what it had to offer re: fitness advice and workouts etc.
I read the book (or tried to - it was laborious) over a couple of days and I kept waiting for the bit that made me glad I’d bought it. It was amateurish in its prose and had no real substance. I felt he wrongfully dismissed virtually everything else that has been researched over the years - backed by his mere six years of being in the health and fitness industry.
I feel he offers nothing that hasn’t already been said, but he says it in a rambling self promoting childish and extremely arrogant way. He is just another self promoting (hate this word) “Influencer” and they grind my gears at the best of times.
I was disappointed at his willingness to negate any other type of eating plan out there when his is hardly life changing. His basic message is regurgitated calorie deficit advice but with a few swear words and a scattering of “pardon the pun” thrown in for good measure.
I’ve been doing IF with an app and it is a million times better than anything this book has to offer regarding weight loss. I am amazed at the 5 star reviews and can only assume they have never ever read any other book of this genre before so they have nothing to compare to. I’m baffled.
I can sum up the book for you and save you bothering:
Eat fewer calories, move more, dump your partner if they aren’t putting out and...women have periods.
James Smith isn't just a PT.... He's a life coach. So don't bother with any other reviews, just buy it. I can guarantee that you won't want to put it down until you are finished!
