Alwyn Cosgrove's Warp Speed Fat Loss eBook

Has anyone heard anything about this ebook? I have no plans to buy it (for $97, on sale - WTF???) but I'm curious as to people's thoughts on it. Some of the names I respect in the fitness biz are really promoting it. I don't know what to think. If you see it mentioned on any message boards, please let me know! I want to know what others are saying about it.

And now I'm even more confused. On one board, I see Lyle McDonald credited with this particular program, and there's controversy surrounding it. I must get the scoop!

Ok, I just found this thread. I'll be reading it now. It's lengthy.

Alrighty - I am on page 2 of the thread I linked to and I doubt there is anything in the ebook that I couldn't figure out on my own. One poster on the thread said the calorie recommendation for her was just over 1000 per day. So I can just imagine what the rest of it's like - eat right (but very little), lift weights, do HIIT, do steady state cardio. The program is designed for people with less than 20 pounds to lose in a hurry.

No thanks.

Oh, I want to add that I have nothing against quick weight loss diets, and if you can maintain your loss, fantastic. I can't. So for me, I have to take the slow and steady route. I can drop weight like mad when I restrict calories and work out like a fiend. But I can't do it for long.

I haven't heard of the book, but why does that name sound so familiar???

That is really steep for a book!

An electronic book, to boot! You don't even get anything physical, and I bet printing is disabled like it is in the electronic version of New Rules of Lifting. You can't even copy sections. I had to do screen captures to be able to print out the workouts.

Yikes...well, it better be a really darn good book for that price!! I'd have to pay to go get it printed out on top of that!
