If you want to lose weight and keep it off for the rest of your life, it pays to become a runner. Or at least someone who runs. This is the subject of Dr. Jason Karp’s book, Run Your Fat Off: Running Smarter for a Leaner and Fitter You. Running, while as old as the human race itself, has been largely neglected by weight loss experts, fitness trainers, and publishers. How ironic and awesome it is that an activity so historic, so integral to our evolution and embedded in our civilization, can be looked at in a new way, for a new purpose. Our ancient ancestors ran to get food; now, we run to get away from what food does to our waistlines. And we run to find ourselves. Runners understand, perhaps better than anyone, that physical effort is the path to a slimmer, healthier, and more fulfilling life. Running doesn’t only change people’s waistlines; it changes their lives.

Dr. Karp’s unique expertise as an exercise physiologist, running coach, and lifelong runner is translated into a practical running-for-weight-loss program in Run Your Fat Off. With inspirational stories of people who have lost weight through running framing the chapters, Run Your Fat Off explores how running is the solution to sustained weight loss. The book outlines the three major reasons why running is the world’s best calorie-burner, sheds a scientific light on calories and metabolism, and includes running menus for beginner, intermediate, and advanced runners, along with nutrition menus and recipes. Through the partitioning of calories, Run Your Fat Off makes you the director of the calorie movie, dictating where your calories go and how they are used so you can achieve permanent weight loss.

Through running, we fulfill our destiny as physical beings, and on the foundation of a fitter physical being, we can build a better life. This is the subject of Dr. Jason Karp’s book, The Inner Runner: Running to a More Successful, Creative, and Confident You. More people run than do any other physical activity because people see it not only for what it does physically to them, but also for what it does emotionally and spiritually. Running doesn’t change people’s waistlines; it changes their brains and their lives. The book, which includes inspirational runners’ stories framing the chapters, explores how running helps us become better people and provides a path to a more meaningful, more creative, more imaginative, more productive, more confident, more healthful, and more successful life. The Inner Runner is just as much about life as it is about running.
