I guarantee this book will be a bestseller or I’ll eat my super support, stomach control, plus sized swimsuit. After all, it has April on the cover wearing a white bikini and a promise that you, like her, can lose 30 kilos in 30 weeks. I devoured the book as if it was a smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel hoping for a quick fix solution, but I was disappointed. April stresses time and time again that it’s sheer hard work that got her looking this good. Early morning exercise, no alcohol, eight small meals of fruit and salad and low fat protein and you too can look great in a white bikini. It’s an easy, entertaining read but you won’t find anything you don’t already know in here. You want to lose weight - put down the book, put down the biscuit and go for a walk.

Weight loss is something sooooo many women & men too struggle with. After reading Kerre's review I'm now of to purchase Aprils book!!!! Its given me inspiration but the one thing that could let me down is "no alcohol".....I think Kerre would probably agree!!! CHEERS

Hmm interesting review. When I first saw that April had a book out I thought it was more of a story through her journey and I was quite keen to read it, now reading this review I wonder if it is more of a diet plan....might have to sit on this one a little longer before I decide

I admire her determination, but the reality is that some of us don't have the money to spend on a personal trainer, or the time to spend doing all the exercise she did. I agree - get out there and go for a walk. It'll do your mind and your body a world of good!

I say good on April for taking the weight off, she has done really well. My thing is there are alot of other people that would love to have a personal trainer to push them along but can't afford it. Has she had to pay loke everyone else.

I have always admired April and am enjoying this book, her humour and brutal honesty. I agree with Kerre totally; it is not a quick fix book and April does indeed point out just how much hard work she put into her weightloss.
15 May 2012 19:56:49 | Julie Maxted

Oh I know how true your comments are Kerre, been there done that so many times...but I do so want to read this book just in case there's something there I haven't heard before!

Sounds great wish I could look like that in a bikini
15 May 2012 22:09:07 | Dianne Davies

Trouble is that I like to read this type of book, both for ideas and inspiration, but its harder to make any lasting changes myself. And of course, what works for April may not work for everyone. But she looks so healthy!

I must read this - April seems just like most of us regular women. I don't know how good I'd look in a bikini though!

would love to lose 30kg in 30 weeks

Ex-SAS trainer and 1 kilo a week weight loss - hope it doesn't put people off rather than inspiring them...

I wouldn't have bought this book as I am past the age of worrying about looking good in a bikini, and concentrate on trying to keep healthy with a sensible regime. BUT I won this book in the last competition and can tell you I loved it! It's not just a weight loss programme, it's the journey of a gutsy and determined lady and she doesn't pussyfoot about in the telling of that journey. She's stubborn, she argues often with her trainer, she has a damn good moan in every chapter and I love it because she's honest. She goes off the rails and hauls herself back on them again and again. She's just like you and just like me and I was thrilled to bits by her success. Incidently I don't think he was HER personal trainer as such, there was a magazine deal to take her 'after pictures' and also he was training other people as well, both at his gym/the park and also virtually. Loads of people got a lot of inspiration from the Facebook website and I don't think paid a penny for it. ( I'm not sure though) The trainer got a lot of publicity over it and all in all it was a win/win. I loved this book and I admire April a lot.

She's looking really good on the cover and good on her for realising she needed to lose weight and then doing something about it.

I would love to read this book, April's journey is inspiring

Quick read, reminding us of what we already know, no quick fix to weight loss, hard work and discipline wil get you there every time.
14 Sep 2012 09:54:38 | Angela Campbell

Sounds great, I do want to lose alot of weight. I would like a plan that you can stick to and eat normal food. Will have a look at this book for me, just finding time to read with kids will be the hard part.
14 Sep 2012 11:03:31 | Lorena Pollock

Awesome for April! Diets are not for everyone but when something works we want to share with everyone and it's more rewarding when others share the joy. Good for you April!

Love It

This book was really inspirational and it felt that it came from a real life human instead of some doctor or scientist. I loved this book and have already lost 5 kgs and just through reading this and getting inspired to watch what I eat and to exercise.

not again April...

It's fantastic to see April in such great shape (again). I only hope she can maintain the nutrition and exercise lifestyle that has got her into the white bikini. Seeing the word "diet" on the front of her book sets off my alarm bells. We all know diets don't work - I detest the word - the minute you stop the "diet", you regain the weight and more. It does make me wonder if April is on another yo-yo weight loss/gain path. I truly hope not. Watch this space.

April loses it

Kerre's review proves, loosing weight is not easy, nit something that can be done overnight. Whilst the book is entertaining to read.to get rid of those unwanted kilos Kerre stresses it is sheer hard work. This is a huge commitment a combination of regular exercise, keeping the lid on the biscuit jar,and determination not to give up no matter how long it takes. Sounds like a must read.

Mothers day Books and Bubbles

Hullo fellow book worms. I'm a big girl!!!!!!and a mum!!!!!!!!!!. I went to the mothers Day Books and Bubbles in Hamilton. A great afternoon. I went with my mum (87) and my visiting (Australian) sister (size 10). I went for a laugh....i.e. (Kerry Woodham....excellent speaker). But I was inspired by April. To see her in person, she is beautiful. So April! I have been out and brought your book, (from Paper Plus)and a pen. And I am up to the second chapter. My niece has lost 20 something kilos following you on facebook. My turn. Thanks. Faye:)
