Hi Jillian :-)

I just got the book and I am a fast oxidizer. At 20/50/30 do you know if the South Beach cookbook would be a good idea (modified for fat, I suppose). It seems like everything I currently cook is a sandwich, wrap, or pasta. If not are there any other cookbooks you could suggest?

Hey everyone

just wanted to let you know (most probably already do) but there are a lot of articles on line that Jillian has answered questions in. I did a google search and found several.

Thought it might help someone - I can send links if anyone wishes

Hi Kathy

I'm on the NSW Central Coast and I got a copy of the book from Borders yesterday. I'd say that any good bookstore would be able to order it in for you tho. I haven't seen the DVDs anywhere (but then again I haven't been looking either).

Hope this helps.

Hi Kathy

I ordered my book through amazon about a month ago when it came out as I know that it takes a while sometimes for them to be on the shelves here.

I just checked Angus & Robertson online and the book is there at $45.

Hope this helps.

Talking what Book????

"Dear Patty - They sold out of my book at Walmart??? YAY YAY YAY... ok - so sorry I need to have a wildly obnoxious moment. "

are you talking about YOUR book or the Biggest Loser book?

I went looking for YOUR book but didn't find it and I have the BL book but would also like to get your book if you have one

Elizabeth-this is not really my area of expertise but your friend may want to try some kind of water exercises first. It will give her a chance to build some muscle tone and endurance without a lot of joint impact. I'm sure Jillian will have some more ideas when she has time to answer questions.

I second that about water exercises; they're easy on the joints and give a heavy person a marvelous feeling of freedom of movement!
