With cyberspace and the hypnotic pull of television screens keeping us seated and motionless for at least five hours a day, not to mention our passion for rich, greasy, sugar-laden foods, we of the 21st century have evolved into an all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-watch society-even though survey after survey shows we know better, and despite the fact that many of us really and truly want leaner, healthier, more efficient bodies.

At 45 years old and with a body fat level of just five percent, John Abdo, is proof of how simple, healthy lifestyle choices can result in a tighter and leaner body. Trainer of elite athletes such as gold-medal speed skater Bonnie Blair and three-time world power lifting champion Craig Tokarski, Abdo is the inventor of and spokesman for the fastest selling exercise equipment in America: the AB-DOer. Make Your Body a Fat-Burning Machine provides:

*A detailed explanation of how an intelligently designed eating and exercise program can turbo-charge the metabolic process to create an efficient and enduring fat incerator
*An easy-to-understand, nonthreatening exercise program that takes just 10 to 15 minutes at a time yet burns more fat than traditional aerobic exercise
*Nutritional guidelines rather than a rigid diet
*Self assessment tests to help identify needs and track progress
*The 30-Day meltdown: a quick-start exercise and nutrition regimen that enables the loss of up to 25 pounds of fat in the first month
*Low-fat, easy-to-prepare nutritionally balanced recipes
*A troubleshooting guide for dealing with setbacks, adjustments, and time management.

Finally, Make Your Body a Fat Burning Machine provides the information and support needed to incorporate this program and ideas into a permanent way of life.
