Scientists have been studying weight loss for decades and while diet and exercise are important, you are setting yourself up for failure by using them exclusively. Scientists have identified other important variables that affect our weight, and now you'll be able to master them and achieve your ideal body with S.P.E.E.D.

Sleep  -  Psychology  -  Exercise  -  Environment  -  Diet

Did you know that how well you sleep has a huge impact on whether or not you'll be successful on a weight loss program? Sleep governs hormones which affect our mood, appetite and other important functions. S.P.E.E.D. will show you how important sleep is and what simple rules will help you become successful.

Science-Based Weight Loss Strategies That Just Plain Work!, September 25, 2009
By Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man "Jimmy Moore"

Get your motor running, head out on the highway, looking for adventure, and whatever comes my way! I feel the need, the need for S.P.E.E.D.! It's not everyday you have the opportunity to get wild and enthusiastic about something like weight loss, but this book from nutrition and fitness experts Jeff Thiboutot and Matt Schoeneberger does just that. Unlike so many other diet books that are out there, this one takes into account a myriad of reasons why weight can go up and down including the biological, psychological and social issues involved. It's a short book by design and these guys have really done their homework.

Excellent summary of the real science behind weight loss, October 30, 2009
By T. Naughton

If you're a fan of Good Calories, Bad Calories but have a hard time convincing your loved ones to wade through the heavy-duty science to get the message, this is a good book to give them instead -- or give it to yourself, if you don't like wrapping your head around words like "lipoprotein lipase" and "esterification." You can read SPEED in an afternoon and get a quick, scientifically-sound education about what works and what doesn't when it comes to health and weight loss.

As someone who's read a ton of books and scientific literature about health nutrition, I tend to worry when I see Bachelor Science in Nurtition after an author's name: here comes the brain-dead parroting about the evils of saturated fat and all that. But I'm pleased to say Jeff Thiboutot and Matt Schoeneberger, who between them hold several degrees in fields like nutrition, psychology and exercise science, have actually done their research. Pretty much everything they state in the book is followed by a string of citations from scientific journals -- so if you do enjoy jumping head-first into the science, you can look it up.

On target nutrition book, February 16, 2010
By Dr. Richard D. Feinman

A small gem of a book ... It is surprisingly authoritative, accurate and high on practical application. ....There is the obligate chapter Common Weight Loss Myths and the list is as good as any. It is, however, the overall reliance on real evidence  that makes this book a real winner.

Very practical and well researched book about weight loss, January 5, 2010
By W. Ralph Pew

Don't be fooled by the title, this is not the ONLY weight loss book worth reading but it is the best, most concise, and well researched practical guide to weight loss available.

By L. Cagnassola "Laurie Cagnassola"

The authors understand that the obstacles to weight loss are not simply calories. After reading this book you'll have a clearer understanding of what may be getting in the way of your weight loss along with a variety of solutions for your lifestyle. You'll learn about many common weight loss myths that many people have come to believe as truths. . . . Act now - get this book.  


PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION by Patti Hultstrand, Publisher/CEO; Az Publishing Services, LLC:

One of my greatest pleasures since becoming a print publisher in 2009, has been when readers come up to me and tell me how much they enjoyed Jeff and Matt's weight loss book and they were surprised at how much great information they got out of this compact, yet useful book. Besides being proud to promote this terrific book, Jeff and Matt are a joy to work with because of their professionalism and commitment to excellence in business, and their deep conviction to help people with their weight loss issues. These guys "really" care about giving you, the reader, the most accurate information so you can make informed decisions on your potential weight loss goals.

For anyone who needs to lose some weight or just want to understand their bodies more, should also read what Matt and Jeff have to say on their website and it's special reports.

SPECIAL WINNERS WILL BE CHOSEN from those leaving comments or questions about this book or its authors. We will be giving away a FREE pdf eBook for anyone who has not read the book yet and a FREE t-shirt to one lucky participant of this virtual blog tour.

We always welcome questions!

Since you and Jeff are already helping people with their health and fitness, why did you guys feel the need for writing this book?

Work Out said...

Thanks for the post. It contained a lot of great information and I look forward to more in the future.

Matt said...

AZPS - We wrote the book for a few reasons. First, we noticed there was too much bad information in our field. Too many people were being led to focus on unproductive behavior so we wanted to dive into the scientific literature to figure out what worked. Second, we wanted something to hand our clients that was a basic how-to manual so they could, in essence, have us in their pocket. Third, we thought with a book we could reach a wider audience.

Funny how our businesses aren't all that different. Authors in the publishing industry have been lied to and manipulated out of their money at a staggering rate. I became a publisher mainly because I wanted to help others who haven't had the benefits I have had with learning from other authors over the last 20 years.

Your reasoning is very sound and having a book should definitely allow for a wider audience and will validate your work at the your center.
