I am a fan of Tony Robbins and I decided to follow Tony's advice on how to exercise. His advice is based on the work of Stu Mittleman and I decided to buy this book and get a better understanding for myself.I am very pleased. I was unaware that you can get such great results with such little effort!!!!!I am a former football player (lineman) and competitive Powerlifter [web page]. I worked so hard to build a huge benchpress (560lbs bench--life time drug free) that I let my bodyweight swell to 360lbs @ 6'5 tall. As long as my benchpress went up I did not care if my waist line did as well.It became clear that I needed to lose weight, but I was tackling weight loss as I did with weight lifting. High intensity for short training sessions. It was not working in the aerobic arena. I learned to run at football practice. Push it!!! You have to make 2 miles in 16 minutes no matter how your heart is acting or how winded you are. Make the time.With Stud's book, I learned a far better strategy. Longer workouts, training in your target heart rate--with a heart monitor.I HAVE LOST 25LBS OF PURE FAT AND ZERO MUSCLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!My benchpress has increased and my waist line has decrease. I train on an elliptical trainer 4-6 times a week for over an hour in my target heart rate. Something I never thought I would do. And it looks and is so easy, that when I am finished, I could do the workout all over again. Results are what I am concerned with.I was so successful with Stu principles, that other powerlifters and even comptetive runners in the gym have come to me and asked for running and weight loss advice. Needless to say, I recommend Stu's book, Slow Burn.BUY THIS BOOK, USE IT, AND CHANGE YOUR WEIGHT/HEALTH/QUALITY OF LIFE. If you were to pay $300.00 for this book, it would still be a good deal...

Revolutionary work, but basic and simple

Stu Mittleman has accomplished what seem to be several ridiculous feats. How could a man possibly run 1,000 miles in 12 days? How could a man run 100 miles per day for nearly 6 days? How could he do all of this and have a smile on his face, and minimal fatigue afterwards? Slow Burn is revolutionary! Never would a runner imagine all of the little things that go into it. Mittleman teaches us how to visualize, how to use proper technique, how to breathe properly while running, how to alleviate the stress on the body, which foods we should be consuming, and much more. This book is excellent, and anyone who needs to improve their physical fitness and well-being should set aside a day or two to absorb the information within. It's an excellent read.

Utterly fascinating read!

Mittleman's book makes an outstanding contribution to health and fitness for beginners and old-timers alike by presenting a profound insight--the way to health is not paved with suffering, but ongoing, daily joy. I have for years now subscribed to an "easy does it" philosophy like Mittleman's, an approach to movement which emphasizes exercise as pleasure, not pain. Like Mittleman, over the past 25-30 years, I have been exposed to countless, "no pain, no gain" thinkers in the world of fitness. And, like him, I've seen far too many people hurt themselves, sometimes permanently, by enforcing on themselves this attitude. Mittleman does an outstanding job of describing what it looks like to have a "process-oriented" approach to the body, both in achieving basic health and establishing a productive, exercise routine. This is defined as being "in the moment," fully experiencing where you are right now with each and every workout. Not living for some future moment when you are done working out and have reached some (often mythical) goal. I agree heartily with that and also with Mittleman's suggestion that we treat our bodies as our "partners." I have taken this approach for about 20 years. It is an amazing (and ongoing) journey working through the socialization we receive in the West to distrust our bodies as our enemies. We are trained to either be terrified of our bodies (when they do something "mysterious," such as getting ill or injured), or to treat our bodies like our personal slave, to be subjected to our whim (either harsh workout regimes or used to gain fleeting pleasure through various compulsions and addictions). Mittleman is from California, and, having lived there myself over 20 years (not presently, alas), a Mecca of alternative medicine, I was very familiar with various alternative healing modalities Mittleman proposes in his book. I was particularly happy that he reminded me of kinesiology ("muscle testing"), a concrete way of asking your body what it wants which, like him, I learned about first from a chiropractor. I hadn't used the technique in a while, but I tested it out on some running shoes and some supplements I had just bought the day I read the book and was happy to find my body approved of them! I was interested to note that Mittleman eats and recommends a diet very similar to the Atkins diet, what Atkins himself eats, primarily protein and vegetables. This is a diet that takes a while for some of us to break into. Like Mittleman, I have been in the past a vegetarian (for 10 years from age 19-29), and most of my adult life bought into the belief first perpetuated among vegetarians in the early 70s and, later, Nathan Pritikin in the 80s, that protein is "satan." Years of too little protein left me seriously protein deficient, and going on a "protein-sufficient" diet, the Zone, in 1996 immediately ended 7 years of chronic fatigue in one fell swoop, never to return. For me, the Zone, however,

Slow Burn Long Results

As a fitness professional I've been giving this book to my clients to help motivate and educate them. Stu's book is easy to read and understand. He reminds me what I often forget about exercise,what a joy and blessing it is to move!

Incredible Must-Buy for anyone interested in Health!

This book was simply amazing! Stu Mittleman covers in detail all of the areas that allowed him to run over 1,000 miles in 11 days. He covers your mindset/philosophy (if you are in a marathon you are not running 26 miles you are running 1 miles 26 times). He covers training and shows you how to slow down so you burn fat, not sugar, as well as proper heart rate zones etc and lastly he covers food. He'll teach you how to eat so that you put your body into a constant fat burning mode not sugar burning. His suggestions will help you to eliminate the ups and downs throughout your day and make it so you will feel high energy all day without getting tired! This really opened my eyes and Stu knows exactly what he is talking about because he walks his talk and has done so for over 15 years. This is a must read for anyone even remotely interested in health and/or fitness!
