I read this book and am giving the exercise plan a try beginning tomorrow. It is a 7 stage, 6 month long weightlifting plan. The gist that I got from it is stop lifting light weights and isolating small muscles. Heavy, full-body workouts are the way to go. I had already been leaning in this direction (Calves? Do I really need to work my calves?) in the weight room. I am excited to have some guidance and direction.
The book also has a food plan section that focuses on eating enough calories and plenty of protein so that your body has the fuel that it needs to build muscle. I was not a big fan of protein shakes, but after reading this book am giving them a go as well.
I'll do my best to come back and give an update.
(I wouldn't recommend the Kindle version. The charts for the workouts are difficult to read.)

I was browsing through my Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook and came across this recipe. What caught my attention was the use of cream cheese. Very similar to Million Dollar Spaghetti recipe that is floating around the net, but way easier on the calories. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that someone had already entered it into the recipe calculator. Here is the link to the recipe here on spark.
Hamburger Noodle Casserole
This photo is from the taste of home website. I forgot to take a picture of mine.
I can't say enough about this easy, delicious, healthy meal! I made it in two 8x8 casseroles and froze one for later. The kids loved it. The husband loved it. I loved it. The cream cheese mixture tempted me to lick my plate. Yes, it's that good. I may sub jarred marinara for the tomato sauce next time for a little more flavor, but it is great as written.
