In an ideal condition, it is NOT difficult to lose weight / the excess fats stored in the body as it is natural for the body to use the surplus calories (stored in the body) at times of a shortage in the supply of calories (breaks between meals). But in an imperfect world, other than those who are generally well conditioned or genetically gifted, to lose the stored surplus / stubborn fats ‘naturally’ involves a lot of effort as the unnatural conditioning impedes the natural process of using fats as a source of energy. If you are looking for the IDEAL way to lose weight (which you presumably are with all sincerity), you would need to get some facts right to find your way through the maze of confusing and misleading info about diet, exercise and metabolism or else, like many, you may wreck your body and lose your way. The book focuses on the need of making the ideal body (instead of just on losing weight). It differs from the standard weight loss programs in the sense, it seeks to bring on a fast and far reaching effect / total transformation of the body through a course that entails improving the metabolic functioning and the physical conditioning / muscle mass and fat proportion of the body (instead of just increasing the rate of metabolism and the size of muscles). The book draws attention to the already founded but apparently forgotten fact that the weight issue is caused by an abnormal / improper metabolism (and not necessarily a slow metabolism as often made out) and there are about 10 common factors (ranging from chronic stress to hormonal imbalance) that cause the imbalance in metabolism and counteract / foil the efforts of making the ideal body (and it is not necessarily overeating or inactivity that always cause the trouble). For the purpose of ‘curing’ the weight issue / making the ideal body, it advocates a COMBINATION of the four most effective systems of all times, originating from man’s inborn longing for optimum health and fitness, which takes care of all the 10 common factors which impede metabolism / the natural process of fat loss and sets off an all natural course of transformation which accelerates toning / muscle growth and fat loss (instead of a restrictive diet or exhaustive exercises which cause more of muscle loss and less of fat loss for overall weight loss). Interestingly, in contrast to most other weight loss systems, a combination of the four systems does not require relentless efforts and allows one to spare more time and to ease off / feast and take break from exercising more frequently … and because of the reason that it requires lesser effort and lesser time, one can follow it with ease and fit it in the lifestyle making some alterations according to one’s suitability. One more important aspect that the book covers is the involvement / importance of the mind in the success of an endeavor; the book while dealing with the subject sheds light on the necessity to apply the mind to deal with the obstructions / distractions / factors that cause a failure. To optimally apply the mind in an endeavor, it suggests using some simple traditional techniques that increase the positive attitude towards living and the mental fortitude to pursue the dream of making the ideal body.
