Greetings my fellow users. As a son of a U.S. solider. I inspire to follow in my father's foot steps. What I need to is become stronger and healthier. I have no illnesses or anything like that. Just that being the son of business people has given me a belly I need to get rid of. The two books I purchased are: The U.S. Navy Seal guide to fitness and nutrition, Special Ops Fitness Training: High-Intensity Workouts of Navy Seals, Delta Force, Marine Force Recon and Army Rangers, and The complete guide to Navy Seal fitness by Stewart Smith who is a Navy Seal. Both books go over fitness and what foods to eat. There is also detailed information on getting the best results from your diet and work outs.

I have been losing weight and eating better. But I need to push harder. What are your thoughts on the books and also the reviews? Many users have high favors on all three.

Without even needing to look at the book reviews, if your not in fairly exceptional shape already then there is no way on this world you should even be contemplating undertaking a SEAL/Ranger workout program.

Get yourself to above average health first and then maybe look at those books otherwise you'll either fail massively, hurt yourself, lose motivation or most likely a combo of all three.

No one should be trying to emulate the workout of a Navy Seal unless they are already in an excellent shape already

I'm not trying to be Superman without taking baby steps first. I have been slowly and I mean slowly converting to a good exercise habit and diet. What I do is starches, push-ups and sit-ups, yoga, walking and running, biking, and playing sports. I have lost a lot of weight and gained more muscle. But I'm not buff. More athletic in appearance. Should I eat more protein and work to make my muscles stronger?

Thanks for the link. As I was mentioning before I know how hard it is for people to get in shape. As well work out like Navy Seals. I have lost a lot of weigh and feel more comfortable exercising.

Weekly increasing reps of push ups/sit ups will lay a great foundation. I am still athletic, but started years ago with barely 10 reps of push ups going to 40 in a row some months later. Doing some sets (more and more untill you'll need work out equipment/gym because you can't gain more muscle from bodyweight) of these daily and increasing them will work great. As for food: proteins, lots of water, vitamins and enough sleep (and not more than required). I'm not an expert at this, far from, but this is what I know. And it works!

Yes, I learned the hard way about resting your body. There was sometimes I just had to sit down without getting enough sleep. This is also for anyone who is working out. Sleep is very important!

To build muscle you need to keep your body in an anabolic state which effectively means consuming more calories per day than you burn, proteins are the building blocks of muscle and the general rule from a bodybuilding perspective is to consume 1g of protein per lb of body weight per day.

Cut out fatty, fast, junk foods. Eat cleanly and I'd recommend supplementing your diet with a good quality whey protein simply for ease, try that and crank up your cardio slightly. Three times a week is plenty if your eating healthy and training with weights, give it a go - watch the change.

Do not over train, it's counter productive. No one needs to spend any longer than an hour tops in the gym, unless they have a little "help"
