FYI: The best selling fitness ebook on clickbank (since 3 years!) is "Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle
" by Tom Venuto. This ebook (340 pages) costs $39.95 and comes with 5 bonuses and a 8-week money-back guarantee.
I believe it's hard to compete with that ebook, because it covers all aspects of fitness (goal setting/motivation, cardio, weight exercises, nutrition, etc).

Thanks Frans, I actually just went and bought that book so I can read it and see what differences there are between my plan and his. So far, I've only read the first bit and already I can see a difference. His book is great from what I can see, and loaded with TONNES of information, but just reading it so far I am pretty sure I wouldn't have followed this program have I read it a month ago when I started.
For example, here are a few quotes from his book:
"Well, if youíre scared by hard work, then this program is not for you. Losing fat is simple but itís definitely not easy"
"Hard work is the only way anyone ever accomplishes anything! Nothing good
ever comes easy."
Just reading those two sentences right there already tells me the kind of belief systems this person has. He probably works really hard, physically, to be in the shape he's in. I don't believe that's necessary, if you learn how to harness the power of your mind and spirit to help you on your quest to becoming healthy and fit. In fact, I'll go as far as saying that being healthy and fit is a natural way our bodies WANT to be, but we take them out of balance.
I understand what he's trying to say; that sitting on the couch and eating potato chips while watching an exercise video is not going to get you fit. What I think he is missing is that his own beliefs that "exercise is hard! no pain no gain!" are causing his exercise to be hard. I have been running every day since Dec 19th, and it's pretty damn easy! It was hard getting my mind figured out and overcoming some stupid beliefs I had, but once that was all done with, the physical aspects of actually working out are actually pretty easy.
After all, when you were a child and you ran around chasing other kids, did you think it was "hard work" running around? No! You ran around laughing all the way, playing with the kids and having fun.
I think that's where my plan might be different from his. His emphasis is more on "WHAT TO DO", whereas mine is more about "HOW TO BE WHILE DOING WHAT YOU NEED TO DO". At least that's one differentiating factor.
I'll read his entire book and have a better perspective. Thanks for your insights so far! Much appreciated!
