Four Popular Diet & Fitness Books For Spring

I asked a couple of friends and publicists for their input on the hottest diet and fitness books for spring – there are always an abundance of new ones around this time of year. 

I love how most of them include numbers/timelines in the titles. It really makes sense. We all want to see the quickest results and get them by spending the least amount of time at the gym as humanly possible. Now that is my kind of book!
Here are the top four I thought were worth mentioning, the descriptions come from the publishers.

The 5-Factor Factor World Diet
The 5-Factor World Diet by celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, blends the world's healthiest foods into one diet featuring over 150 recipes. He brings together proven nutritional secrets, along with techniques from his uniquely specialized "5-Factor Formula” (he wrote the book 5-Factor Fitness). The “5-Factor Formula” is said to have helped thousands of dieters feel more energized and less hungry, able to shed more fat, build lean muscle, and feel healthier than ever before.  And the author is Canadian...

The Eat-Clean Diet Recharged: Lasting Fat Loss That's Better than Ever!
The Eat-Clean Diet by Tosca Reno was a bestseller and comes highly recommended. This updated edition offers in-depth information on non-threatening exercise for extending and improving your life, getting and staying motivated, getting rid of cellulite and tightening your skin to combat the harsh effects of menopause. 
There are nearly 100 new pages, 50 new recipes, information on eating disorders, and a selection of menu plans. 

The 17 Day Diet: A Doctor’s Plan Designed for Rapid Results
Author Dr. Mike Moreno (Dr. Mike) will be familiar to fans of “Dr. Phil” and “The Doctors”. They are currently having an on-air competition to see which contestants can lose more weight using this book.
The 17-Day Diet is a 4-cycle plan that claims to activate "body confusion," which keeps your metabolism guessing, so that you burn fat and lose weight quickly and safely.

The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman 
Tim Ferriss, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Workweek claims that this book will show you how to achieve the following:
·         Lose those last 5-10 pounds (or 100+ pounds) with odd combinations of food and safe chemical cocktails.
·         Prevent fat gain while bingeing (X-mas, holidays, weekends)
·         Increase fat-loss 300% with a few bags of ice
·         How to sleep 2 hours per day and feel fully rested
·         How to produce 15-minute female orgasms
·         How to triple testosterone and double sperm count
·         How to go from running 5 kilometers to 50 kilometers in 12 weeks
·         How to reverse “permanent” injuries


Becoming "superhuman"... Sounds pretty good to me!
Honorable mentions also go to The G.I Diet by Rick Gallop, The South Beach Diet by Dr. Arthur Agatston and The Best Life Diet by Bob Greene.
