The world-renowned fitness coach on the hit television show The Biggest Loser presents his winning approach to lasting weight loss by showing how to get at the root of your overeating problem, followed by a nutritionally savvy diet and unique exercise plan.

On The Biggest Loser, Bob Harper gives contestants the practical tools and psychological insights they need to get into the best shape of their lives. The key to his success is the emotional connection he makes with each participant, and he brings that same spirit to Are You Ready!

Harper starts with a four-step strategy for getting at the root of negative thought patterns and destructive behaviors, replacing both with a clear way to build self-worth and confidence. With these tools in place, people are empowered to make real, lasting changes in their lives. In an easy-to-follow eating plan, he provides lists of foods that are nutrient-dense and naturally low in calories, more than twenty sample menus, and tips on eating on the run, in restaurants, and on vacation. His fitness plan is geared to making exercise an integral part of daily life with workouts (ranging from 20 to 60 minutes) based on training techniques that tone and strengthen, burn calories, and reshape the body.

Woven throughout Are You Ready! are true-life success stories that will keep readers engaged and motivated; bulleted tips, tools, and coping strategies; and sidebars debunking common myths about food and fitness. Whether your goal is losing ten pounds or a hundred, you will find Harper’s message inspiring and his methods a proven path to finally achieving your dream of weight loss and fitness.

    " I truly love Bob Harper, but I really should not have bought this book as it is essentially your bog standard diet book with a psychological angle. If you are interested in dieting, you will've definately come across all these ideas before. But if you'd like a bog standard diet book to start off your lifelong diet book collection, then buying a book with Bob Harper's face on the front may bring some kind of light into your life. A Bob Harper tinted light. "

    " based on the mind body connection and preparing yourself mentally before making the change to a healthier lifestyle. The only downside of this book I found is half of it is pictures of exercise moves---we all know how to exercise --- I wish more of it would have been based on the first third of the boo...more My daughter bought me this book as she knows as I a huge (no pun intended) Biggest Loser Fan - actually this book caught me off guard as it wasn't really based on the biggest loser at all.....more based on the mind body connection and preparing yourself mentally before making the change to a healthier lifestyle. The only downside of this book I found is half of it is pictures of exercise moves---we all know how to exercise --- I wish more of it would have been based on the first third of the book. "

    " I really respect and admire Bob Harper's methods. I thought this book was insiteful. I only gave it three stars because he really did not end the book. The last part of the book focuses on exercises and then just ended without any other information. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon Aubrey | 2/12/2014

    " Pretty good motivational book for losing weight. Good stories but lots of homework involved "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 1/24/2014

    " I thought this book was really great! Bob spends alot of time getting you in the right mindset before taking on the weight loss challenges. Very inspirational! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurynkay | 1/16/2014

    " I loved Bob's Inner Compass Journey. It totally helped in many areas of my life including what I eat and how much I exercise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maverick | 1/12/2014

    " The information is what I have read before which is a good reinforcement for wanting to change your habits. If your looking for new solution then this book isn't for you, your probably not ready to change. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Sciandra | 1/1/2014

    " Exactly book! Especially if you are looking to change you life! Definetly hit home for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 12/29/2013

    " It was fun to read because I am a fan of the show, but I didn't really find it to be very helpful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 11/17/2013

    " I think this book is great! I love that you can interact with the book with motivational exercises. It really got me pumped about starting a new life, but made me realize that it is a process to lose weight, not just physically but emotionally as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 10/3/2013

    " Great for beginners and those needing a first step on identifying the "why" behind their weight gain. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 8/27/2013

    " I love Bob Harper, so I'm sorry to say that I wasn't completely enthralled with the book. I wanted more personal stories, more anecdotes, more of the awesomeness that you see on The Biggest Loser, but it just didn't come through the pages for me. It was OK. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindee Bowen | 7/31/2013

    " Yup, I'm actually reading this... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 7/22/2013

    " A lot of soul searching in reading this book. A step by step process that doesn't happen overnight. Parts of the book are good to read over again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lizz | 5/25/2013

    " A great book for beginners and easy exercises that can be done with minimal equipment. The book also focuses on the psychological aspects of weight gain/loss. Good read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 3/1/2012

    " This book was nothing new from what I read before. It was filled with stories of how the author helped people to change their lives, but no real way to do it. The suggestions in the book are the same suggestions I've read over and over. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kiston | 2/5/2012

    " I had high hopes for this book, but it was too touchy/feely for me. I wanted to experience what it was like to be trained by Bob, and instead I got a lecture on my 'Inner Compass'. Blah, I say. Still, some of the recipes are useful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 8/18/2011

    " Good advice given in small chunks, making this book a painless read. Its tone is a bit touchy-feely for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missy | 2/10/2011

    " Loved it~ very motivational and not sappy on the working on the inside part... Very grounded and opened my eyes to new ways of dealing with stress. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandy | 12/6/2009

    " So far not impressed and very disappointed because I was really excited about this "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Crawford | 11/13/2009

    " He goes in pretty deep about the Inner Compass, I just expected a little deeper. The back lists exercises, but not necessarily a fitness plan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ealopez826 | 11/10/2009

    " I workout sometimes while watching the biggest loser and let me just say that this book gives you nothing new. But if you don't watch the show bobs workouts and diet plans in the book are easy to follow for beginners. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hannah | 9/25/2009

    " most of it is just pshcological crap "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greg | 7/31/2009

    " Weak. I would expect better from Bob Harper, but then again he's not a real trainer. He just plays one on TV and endorses crap products like ergonomic kettlebells and 7-day detox cleanses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corinne | 4/28/2009

    " Maybe would of rated higher but the 3 stars are about me and I think I've read too many nutrition/health books lately and this one wasn't as helpful to me. Maybe if I read this one first it would of gotten more stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 1/30/2009

    " This is the first health and fitness book I've ever read. It was excellent! Good health comes from within both physically and mentally. It truly is a life-style change. Great book Bob! "
