Chubster: A Hipster's Guide to Losing Weight While Staying Coolby Martin Cizmar
Synopses & Reviews
Youve heard it all before: Calorie counting is the most effective way to lose weight. Youve heard it because its true, and youre still fat because you ignored it. Lucky for you, Martin Cizmar has come up with the least awful diet plan of all time. If youre going to make a change, you might as well do it his way. The cool way. The Chubster way. The Chubster plan revolves around calorie counting and enjoyable "undercover" exercise (urban hiking and gum chewing: solid calorie burning potential on their own; even better together). Martin gives readers the tools to become self-sufficient weight-loss machines capable of functioning in any environment. From frozen dinners and drive-thru menus to ethnic eating and microbrews, he offers suggestions for the responsible choice, steers readers clear of the real diet-killers and dispels some long-held untruths. That Stella youre holding? Its more caloric than Guinness. Dieting is never fun, but with Chubster, losing weight can be. Youre welcome.
"Author Cizmar was 29 and 'happily fat' when he realized he didn't want to be overweight for an upcoming trip to New Zealand to meet his girlfriend's parents. Nor did he want to suffer the possible consequences of obesity, including high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, high cholesterol, arthritis, sleep apnea, or premature death. Not a joiner, Cizmar rejected the billion weight-loss industry (Weight Watchers, etc.), which he deems ineffective and high-priced. Instead, the author, who lost l00 pounds in eight months, presents a simple solution: counting calories. Wisecracking along the way, Cizmar walks readers through his plan, focusing on the premise that when it comes to losing weight, calories are what matters (not what you eat) though the ideal is combining low calorie foods with higher calorie but flavorful and nutritious choices. Cizmar, who loves his microwave, diet drinks, and the convenience of frozen dinners, includes mini reviews of the most 'awesome' and most 'awful' frozen entrees, with the intent to spare readers from wasting money on miserable meals. In addition to exercising (i.e., biking or hiking), he suggests a few unconventional ways to cut calories, including chewing gum, fidgeting, and standing in line at a concert. Science-based and infused with 'snarky jokes,' Cizmar's plan will particularly appeal to 'hipsters' seeking a nongimmicky, foolproof way to slim down while enjoying some laughs."
