Welcome to a refreshing and gloriously unapologetic conversation about health, fitness, and habits. Award-winning trainer Oonagh Duncan cuts through the wellness clutter to drop some truth bombs: It might not be six-pack abs you’re looking for - it might be happiness, confidence, and acceptance.

Wasn't for me

I found the swearing a bit overdone. It didn't make the content particularly witty or enjoyable. I had to return the book the next day. Might be valuable for other listeners, I didn't enjoy it ...sorry :'(

Best no nonsense book on getting healthy

Loved loved loved it!

Easy to follow, straight to the point no BS.

Gives you the truth about having the body of your dreams and tells you exactly what you need to do and how much you are willing to sacrifice. Empowers you to make that decision.

Follow the advice down to the T and you won’t be disappointed with the results.
Highly recommend it!

What an awesome lady.

Common sense but none of us who are over weight and are very good at following common sense.

If everyone in the world did what Oonagh says it would cure poverty, pollution, the health costs of the western world, obesity, unhappiness, I would imagine hundreds of illnesses, and goodness knows what else.

okayish

I guess this book was okay. If you really want to change your habits I would recommend Atomic Habits by James Clear. It's a much better read.

Awesome 👍

The author did an amazing job not only explaining how to be the healthiest you that you can be, but also did an exceptional job at making sure that you know that it's okay to fuck up and fall down. Not only did this book inspire me to become healthier but it gave me some good tools to use in order to become happier with myself. I very much recommend it.

Down to Earth, realistic and empowering.

I don't need to be told precisely how to reach my fitness goals - how to eat and exercise - I really needed help with the mental and emotional parts, which is the main focus of this book. It was a huge help all-around. Highly recommended.

Best book I've listened to in years!

I absolutely loved this book (so much so that I'm listening for a 2nd time). She's able to make building healthy habits relatable and isn't afraid to call out the bullshit we often sell ourselves. Changing our mindset around food from a "diet" mentality to a habit mentality is SO cruicual for positive change. Oonagh does a great job of showing how that shift is possible, and not nearly as hard as we make it out to be.

Dietitians opinion: this book could be dangerous

I have mixed feelings about this book. I am always critical to “fitness experts” writing books with no credentials, just sharing stories of things that have been successful for some people. The first chapter sets you up to believe you won’t be receiving too much critique or specifics, but instead will get overarching themes to success (which I love). Talking about the mental piece is usually under explored in other books. There was minimal mention of seeking out actual professional counseling from a psychologist, psychiatrist, or dietitian. There’s also NO discussion of potential extreme eating behaviors and their consequences (ie eating disorders). Then as the book goes along, it gets WAY to specific, setting people up for ultimate failure. “Don’t eat x grams of sugar,” “meditate for exactly 20 minutes,” these specifics are random and alienating. “Only eat when your hungry” is blatantly inappropriate, given that chronic dieting leads to hormonal imbalances that no longer send normal signals. Unfounded, unwarranted, and wrong.
To wrap it up: please read a variety nutrition books by a nutrition professional (RD, LD). This was like reading a book on cardiovascular surgery by a heart health enthusiast.

horrible

not at all what I thought it was. for anyone thinking of purchasing this book, I would suggest listening/reading a sample first. this was a waste of 6 hours for me.

realatable

I really enjoyed the book but also found it relatable. It is not one of those books that expects you to make a 180° change and maintain it for the rest of your life. Not everyone has the same goals and we all have to find the Balance between what we want and what we are willing and able to do. I’m really glad I got the book. It was worth the time.

THE BEST inspiration you can get from an audio book!

Amazingly done, super inspirational. I actually found myself emotional throughout, and am NOT an emotional person!
