Review of "Fat Loss Detour"
eBook By Nia Shanks

The first thing that I really like about this book is Nia's no BS approach to women's training...it's focused on challenging, heavy weight training and NOT light weight, high-rep toning nonsense.

Nia's taken a really good approach to fat loss here, putting forward information that is practical and effective for achieving the goal of losing bodyfat.

This quote from the book really sums it up nicely...

The main point I want you to take away from this eBook is that training should be fun and also accomplish your personal goals. Do not, and I repeat, do not revolve your life around your training schedule and eating habits (more on that later).

There are more important things in life than working out 6 days per week without fail and eating every scheduled meal right on the dot with the specified percentage of carbs, protein, and fat and blah blah blah. You have more important things to worry about! Why should training and eating be another thing to stress over? It shouldn’t!

Training should be something you look forward to (and some days you won’t, but once again we’ll get to that later). It should be rewarding both physically and mentally. If your workouts become another terrible chore, then something needs to be reevaluated immediately and modified.

If you're a female trainer who is ready to kick butt and take names, you're going to LOVE this book. Nia doesn't hold back or pull any punches when it comes to tearing down the myths and misconceptions about women and training.

For example, if you've been told that women should stick to "light weights and high reps", I want you to have a look at this picture of Nia deadlifting 300 lbs in a meet at a bodyweight of 122 lbs (and the leanest she's ever been in her adult life, she said).

Her theory is simple...training for women, just like men, should be all about performance...and that is something we TOTALLY agree with her on.

The aesthetics (as Nia puts it "looking good naked") come as a result of the hard work you put in in the gym and the nutrition you follow and here's the other big point Nia makes in her book...ladies, you will NOT get she-male "manly" muscles from training heavy and with intensity.

The nutritional aspect of this program is something we're very comfortable with as well, focusing on nutrition principles rather than on specific laid-out meal plans. Meal plans tend to be too restrictive...when you know HOW to eat, nutrition really takes care of itself.

Nia does a nice job of laying out the principles she recommends. It's not revolutionary, brain-blasting information here, nor should it be. Sound nutritional principles will always apply.

Now we come to the 16 Week Body and Mind Transformation program itself...

The training itself is very well laid out and based on sound training principles. As with the nutrition, Nia's goal here is not to overwhelm the reader with too much information but to lay out a solid, easy-to-follow plan of attack that is effective and practical.

The exercise selection is good, as are the overall notes and training recommendations. This is excellent information and ladies, you definitely won't go wrong by following her recommendations to the letter.

In this section, she's also provided workout log sheets so you can keep track of your progress. This is an excellent way to motivate yourself and to make sure you're moving in the right direction.

Nia has also included an Exercise Index to give you instructions on how to perform the exercises in the program..you'll find pictures and detailed explanations of everything here.

What's Your Motivation...

The Motivation Guide that is included in the package is a very cool addition - it's not something I've really seen other fat loss programs. Yet motivation is a tremendous part of successfully acheiving goals, no matter whether they be fat loss or muscle-building.

The included motivational exercises will help train your mind while you're training your body. These exercises will really help you get your head on straight...it's very interesting stuff. The mental aspect of goal achievement really can't be ignored and section address it very thoroughly.

Weak Points...

Honestly, there aren't many in this package. It's good solid information.

If you're a more advanced trainer, you'll probably be familiar with a lot of the philosophy and training information found in the book - it's more geared to the beginner to intermediate trainer.

This is extremely solid training information and even the advanced trainer will most likely learn a fair bit while reading this book.

I'm also a big fan of video when it comes to exercise instruction. The pictures in the Exercise Index section are easy enough to follow but, in my opinion, nothing beats a full-motion visual demonstration of an exercise to really ensure you know exactly what you're doing. If you find the pictures aren't enough to give you the full idea of the exercise here, it'll be easy enough to go on YouTube and research these, too.


Overall, if you're female and looking to really change your body for the better...burning fat effectively while building strength and muscle, this program is going to be right up your alley.

This is a very good approach to women's training - no fluff...just hard work to get the job done.
