THE FOUR-PART JUMPSTART PLAN TO A SKINNIER YOU
• Your Jumpstart Rules: Thirteen must-follow principles to get you ready for your own “big reveal,” including Rule #1, a precise breakdown of the proper protein/carbohydrate/fat proportions for every meal, and Rule #3, which explains why you need to just say no to complex carbs after breakfast during this three-week plan. These are the Rules that Bob Harper and his celebrity clients use to get ready for their big events—and now you’re in on the secrets, too.
• Your Jumpstart Day-by-Day: No decisions, no confusion! Here is the simple, three-week game plan: the food to buy and prepare ahead each week, when and how much to eat each day, and the when and how of your exercise schedule.
• Your Jumpstart Moves: Bob’s unique, twenty-minute, at-home exercise routines. From sit-ups, push-ups, and squats to jumping rope, lateral jumps, and simple chair dips, choose one of the seven “packages” of body-toning moves when your day calls for Bob’s “metabolic conditioning.”
• Jumpstart Recipes: Cleansing or juice fasting? No way! You need to eat to lose weight, so here are twenty-one days of slimmingly delicious recipes—including “Peanut Butter and Jelly” Oatmeal, Sweet Potato Hash, Spaghetti Squash Bolognese, Buffalo Chicken Salad, and Bob’s signature Shrimp Skimpy—formulated with your Jumpstart protein/carb/fat proportions (see Rule #1!) and calorie maximums in mind.
hear the rationalization now: “I’m a little sore today. I must have done more than was necessary yesterday. I think I can afford to take a day off from met-con this week.” This is a three-week program, people! You can’t push off until tomorrow what you must do today. No excuses: do your workouts and take your fish oil. In August 2012, researchers at China’s Zhejiang University published a revealing study about fish oil’s anti-inflammatory, anti-soreness role. Bear with me: in the human
Well, whatever the outfit, have you bought it yet? If not, do it. Do it now. Having that outfit or bathing suit hanging in your closet will focus you, will keep your eyes on the prize for the next three weeks. If you have already bought it, try it on as soon as possible in front of a tough-minded friend and ask for her unvarnished opinion. If it already looks perfect, you’re not reading this book! If the verdict is that you could stand to lose a little to look your best, my hunch is that the

Heat the olive oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and eggplant and cook for 5 minutes. 2. Add the turkey and cook for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally to break up the meat, until browned. 3. Add the tomatoes and broth and simmer for 20
(Remember that because the fiber in fruits and veggies brings their net carb number down, you may sometimes be getting far fewer than 40 percent carbs from my recipes. But I’m assuming you’ll be snacking on fruits and veggies all day long, so you’ll get your needed carbs over the course of the day.) Meaning: these proportions are already basically figured into each meal. All you have to do is fix the meal and eat it. No excuses. So, this is easy math, right? Made easier because I’ve done the
