Dan Isaacson has studied the "energy balance" that is constantly at work within the human body and has developed specific guidelines for living a healthier life based on that dynamic. Already featured in Parade and Rolling Stone and implemented by too many celebrities to name, Isaacson's "Equation" provides both the inspiration and the techniques with which people can improve their appearance, their health, and their lives. It includes:

* Finding the right balance of input to output-a personal fitness equation
* Worksheets for taking stock of your daily "body bill"
* Surefire tips for increasing quality of life, decreasing stress, and losing fat fast
* Customized plans for losing 5, 10, 20, or 50 pounds.

Best of all, the word "diet" never even enters into Isaacson's equation; instead, this easy-to-follow program capitalizes on the fact that humans are creatures of habit, and promises startling results based on small but significant changes in day-to-day behavior.

Review:

"Losing weight is much like being a safecracker. All that separates you from the treasure waiting behind the locked door is the right combination." In The Equation, you learn how to discover your personal combination to help you lose body fat and keep it off. Trainer-to-the-stars Dan Isaacson teams up with physical science expert Dr. Greg Payne and fitness writer Mark Laska to help you increase physical activity, decrease calories, drink more water, and make better choices.

Changing your weight means changing your habits. The authors guide you through the five stages of change and provide strategies (substitute, modify, and shift) that apply to every behavior-change goal. A week-by-week format makes the program easy to swallow, and a daily worksheet ("body bill") helps you stay on track. You figure the calories you're eating, how many you need to eat, and how to decrease calories while increasing physical activity (figured as activity "credits," which correspond to calories burned). The "Equation," then, is "calories in, calories out." The Equation is clear, level-headed, and backed by science. --Joan Price
