David Kirsch is the trainer behind Jennifer Lopez’s killer physique, and in this book he delivers easy-to-follow tips for leading a healthier life. This fabulous guide is a wonderful go-to source for five-minute workout fixes and delicious, yet efficient, fat-burning meals.  His 5-5-5 exercise and nutrition philosophy (follow it and lose five pounds in five days) is definitely one to note.
