The Brown Fat Revolution Book Giveaway!

OK, I am super excited for another giveaway Monday!

The wonderful folks over at have sent me two hardback copies of The Brown Fat Revolution by James R. Lyons, M.D. One for me to review (coming soon) and one to give away to one of my awesome readers!

FTC disclaimer: provided me with two copies of this book. One to give away and one for an unbiased review by myself. I receive no monetary compensation for any of this.

If you haven't heard about this book yet I stole a little blurb from the inside jacket of the book:
     In today's youth-obsessed culture, mixed messages about diet, exercise, and skin care are everywhere. But one thing is clear: Fat is always the enemy. Right? Wrong, says James R. Lyons, M.D. In The Brown Fat Revolution, Dr. Lyons explains that contrary to popular belief, fat is the key to a youthful-looking face and body. But it has to be the right kind of fat. Unlike the yellow, mushy, unhealthy fat that makes us look old, brown fat is healthy, firm, and resilient, and it gives our bodies a youthful appearance. In Dr. Lyons's nearly thirty years of clinical experience, he'd noticed a brown fat in lean patients. His findings pointed to the presence of different types of fat in the body suggested that the quality of the fat is determined by external factors. These observations are akin to the three April 2009 New England Journal of Medicine studies that showed that triggering a different and deeper brown fat may be the secret to a lean, healthy body.
     The Brown Fat Revolution will be the first book to shed light on superficial brown fat, revealing how it makes the body look younger and healthier, and how you can change yellow fat into brown with a specifically tailored and realistic program that includes:
  • A four-week eating plan that alternates carbohydrates and proteins, keeping blood sugar at an even keel to avoid fat production
  • A monthly exercise routine centered on weights and bungee cords--not cardio--keeping metabolism up continuously (not temporarily, as cardio does) to burn more fat
It's easy, consistent, and inexpensive. And the results will last for the rest of your life!

James R. Lyons, M.D., is a plastic surgeon practicing in Westport, Connecticut, and a former clinical instructor at Yale University and diplomate ofthe American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is certified by the ABPS and is a member ofthe American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Connecticut Society of Plastic Surgeons, the New Haven Midical Society, and the Yale Surgical Society.
