KILLING FAT may also be my favorite of all.


Hello Dr. Darden.

I have read Killing Fat and am currently on Week 5 of 6 of the program. I plan on doing another 6 weeks of it. I know it says to continue to do all 10 excercises 2 days a week. But after combing over the book I can’t seem to find the calorie total to follow. Do you go back to the 1600 and progress down every 2 weeks or do you stay at 1400?

I am glad I found your book, it has definitely help me with a regiment I feel I can stick with for the long haul to get to my ultimate goal weight.

Thanks Again,

You could actually do either. But it may be to your advantage to repeat the same breakdown that you’ve just finished.

Great will do the 1600 working down again.

The first book I read in college, and probably the only book my first semester, was The Nautilus Book. I became obsessed. Then later I found Living Longer Stronger. Another home run.

@Friedrich Where did you graduate from?

I just order the book a few weeks ago. I have a trip to Disney at the end of February. I’ll see what I can accomplish before then.

As best I can tell, Campbell’s has discontinued its Well Yes Black Bean and Quinoa soup. Is there any other soup anyone here has used and done well with on this plan?
I’d eat the sand but I’m having dental work done this week and next so the less chewing the better.

Also, I don’t tolerate almonds well. They taste like detergent to me. Would cashews be ok?

Soup: Look for another soup with a similar calorie count. Almonds: Yes, cashews can be substituted.
