I saw this book on Amazon.com a few months ago and immediately thought it looked interesting, so I decided to read it. It was a quick and easy read and I liked it a lot so I decided I would review it for you. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to understand what causes us to get fat and how to overcome it.

Meet The Author: Jackie Warner

I can’t really put one specific label on Jackie Warner as she is/does a lot of things. As it relates to this book, the most important thing to know is that she is a fitness expert. She is also a gym owner, has her own television show, and is an all around entrepreneur. Beyond writing books, she has also made a few exercise videos.

What’s In The Book?

The book is divided into four parts:

Part 1 – This Is Why You’re Fat

In this section, Jackie talks about all the things that contribute to making you fat. She talks a lot about sugar and the way it effects various chemical processes in the body. She also talks about different organs in the body and how they play a part in making you fat or skinny.

Part 2 – This Is How You Eat To Get Hot And Healthy

In this section, you will learn all about Jackie’s approach to eating healthy. Her approach is different than most other diets. In fact, I’m not even sure you would call it a diet. She calls it a food plan.

One interesting part of this section is Jackie Warner’s 2-Week Jump Start. During the first two weeks of her program, all you worry about is making sure you are eating certain foods. You don’t have to stop eating anything you are currently eating or control yourself in any other way. All you have to do it is add in the foods on her list if you aren’t already eating them. It’s kind of like the opposite of a “diet.”

Part 3 – This Is How You Exercise To Get Hot And Healthy

Here is where you will learn all about the Jackie Warner exercise program. Just like the previous section, this section starts with a two week jump start. All you do during these two weeks is a 20 minute cardio routine five days a week. She even gives you six different routines to choose from so there is something for everyone.

After the two week intro, she will take you through her Power Circuits. This is Jackie Warner’s personal approach to circuit training. The best way to burn fat is to build muscle and this is the approach that Jackie takes. She focuses on strength training, but all of the exercises use only body weight or a small dumbbell.

Part 4 – This Is How You Stay Hot And Healthy

In this last section, Jackie focuses on getting your mind right. You may not believe it, but so much of physical fitness is in the mind. If you can’t get your mind right, you will never get the results you want. Jackie will take you through getting in the right mindset to stay thin for the rest of you life.

After Part 4, there are several appendices with some very useful resources. She includes several meal plans and recipes, a sample food journal, and a sample training log.

Why I Like This Book

There are several reasons why I think this is a great book. First of all, it is in line with my exercise and weight loss philosophy, so I know that the things she is saying are correct. Secondly, I like her writing style. As I said earlier, it is an easy read. I also like the layout of the book. The way Jackie takes you through it is very logical. The four parts of the book do a great job of taking you from beginning to end. She tells you why you’re fat, how to get skinny, and then how to stay skinny. It feels very complete.

Some other great things about this book are the meal plans and exercise routines. Jackie gives you great examples of what to eat and even gives you recipes you can follow. For the exercises, each one is illustrated by Jackie making it really easy to follow.

Last of all, the best thing about this book is Jackie’s program. Of all the weight loss programs out there, this one is really easy to follow. The meal plan isn’t too difficult and the exercises are rather simple. All you have to do is read it and do what it says.

Why I Don’t Like This Book

I don’t have many negative things to say about his book, however I will point out a couple things. First of all, this book was written by a woman for women. Throughout the book, Jackie makes it obvious that this book is for women by discussing things that are specific to the female body. This isn’t necessarily a negative (especially if you are a woman) but it does mean that certain parts of the book just won’t pertain to men. That being said, there is nothing about Jackie’s plan that doesn’t apply equally to men and women. I still recommend this book for men. They just need to gloss over the parts where she talks about breasts or getting a tone butt and legs so you will be attractive to men.

The only other complaint I have is with the Power Circuit routines. The routines are good, but there were a couple of things that weren’t immediately obvious to me when I read them. I had to take a minute to make sure I really understood how to complete the circuits. It wasn’t a big deal, but I thought the explanation could have been a little clearer.

Why You Should Own This Book

If you have struggled to lose weight, this book is for you. Jackie takes a different approach to weight loss because she knows how difficult it can be to stick with a diet and exercise routine. Her emphasis is on making her plan easy to follow and easy to stick with.

If you eat like most people eat, then this book is for you. So many of the things we are used to eating are responsible for making us fat. Even some of the foods that you think are healthy are actually contributing to making you fat. This book will educate you on exactly how you should be eating to get and stay thin forever.

If you have been doing countless hours of cardio with little to no results, this book is for you. Traditional cardio is not the answer to weight loss. You need to change the way you exercise to maximize your fat burning potential and this book will teach you how to do it.

To Sum It Up

This Is Why You’re Fat by Jackie Warner is a great book for anyone who wants to lose weight and keep it off forever. Everything you need is contained within this book. If you are ready to make a positive change in your life then you should definitely check out this book.

  1. I recently purchsed Jackie’s book. I have just read through the 2-week jump start chapter for the food plan. It is very easy to read, and I feel it will work well for both my husband and myself, but I read this page to see what a man’s opinion was about the plan. I would like to sign up for your free newsletter.
    Thanks.

  2. Elaine, I’m glad you’re enjoying the book. You should try to get your husband to read it with you. Like I said, he’ll just have to skim over the parts where Jackie says things that are specific to women. It will be so much easier for you to follow the plan if your husband is on board with you. If you are both working toward the same goals then you can support and encourage each other.

  3. Question on the circuits: did u do all 3 circuits under each rountine at same time?

  4. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you Amanda. I let my sister borrow my copy of the book and I wanted to get it back before responding to you. I remember this being a little confusing when I read the book. It looks like Jackie is recommending that on any given day you do one of the circuits in one of the routines. Which ever circuit you choose should be completed three times in a row on the same day. For example, if you choose to do Routine A Circuit 1 on Monday, you would do all 8 exercises on pages 174 and 175. After completing the 8 exercises, start over again and do the complete circuit all over again two more times. After doing the entire circuit three times, you are done for that day. It should take you about 30 minutes to complete.
