Excited would best describe my emotions when I received “The Burn” by . Having had a great experience with Bob Harper’s Skinny Rules and Skinny Cookbook I was energized and ready to try something new. Disappointed, sick and exhausted would describe how I felt after just one week trying to live with “The Burn.”
The book is problematic for a number of reasons:
It is not a sustainable lifestyle of eating. I am not interested in a quick diet that cannot be maintained. I wasn’t to know how to live healthy and light.
The cost of the items required was through the roof! If I wanted a quick diet that was unsustainable which cost too much I could have done something far easier and faster. There are hundreds of them on the market.
Once you are able the purchase the stuff for the diet, it took HOURS of preparation.
Once you bought and prepared the food, there was NO REWARD for your hard earned dollars and time. Most of the meals, shakes and teas were hardly edible. The teas, for example, were so thick they felt like bile going down and did not taste much better.
In the end, I felt terrible. I had no energy, could not work out and ended up getting sick with constant stomach problems.
In the end, unless you have tons of extra cash and time plus you don’t mind diarrhea nor the taste and feel of your food stay away from “The Burn.” Oh, and just in case you were wondering, I had no permanent weight loss.
