GRAND CENTRAL LIFE & STYLE ACQUIRES

REVOLUTIONARY FITNESS AND DIET BOOK

BY ACTOR MORRIS CHESTNUT & CELEBRITY FITNESS EXPERT/TV HOST OBI OBADIKE

 

New York, NY—September 1, 2015

 

Grand Central Life & Style, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hachette Book Group, is excited to announce the acquisition of a new book that will offer a groundbreaking health and fitness plan to help readers lose up to 40 pounds in 12 weeks by actor, Morris Chestnut, and celebrity fitness trainer and nutrition expert, Obi Obadike. Sarah Pelz, Executive Editor of Grand Central Life & Style, acquired world English rights from Katherine Latshaw of Folio Literary Management. The as-yet untitled book has a scheduled publication date of spring 2017.

 

When Morris Chestnut hit the media circuit to promote his latest blockbuster movie, The Best Man Holiday, hosts and producers didn’t want to hear about the movie as much as they wanted to talk about his incredible physical transformation. Not long before shooting that film, Morris was in the worst shape of his life—30 pounds overweight, avoiding the gym and frequenting the drive-through. He turned to celebrity trainer Obi Obadike to help him turn things around in time for the movie, and the results speak for themselves. Morris went from a soft 220 pounds to a ripped 187 in 12 weeks, and audiences haven’t stopped raving about his new look, or asking how he achieved it! Now Morris and Obi are teaming up to share this groundbreaking and completely accessible program. Part fitness and part weight loss plan, this diet is designed to help readers lose pounds and trim inches quickly. Featuring Morris’s personal exercise and diet plan as well as success stories from dozens of everyday people who have lost weight and kept it off, this book will be a life-changer, helping readers reclaim their bodies and their lives for good.

 

Of the acquisition, Pelz said, “Morris Chestnut may look like he comes by his camera-ready abs naturally, but the truth is he occasionally struggled with his weight until Obi Obadike helped him get into the best shape of his life. This revolutionary program is going to change lives, and I’m proud and excited to be publishing these two dynamic authors.”

Before and After Transformation-43lbs Weight Loss

Before and After Transformation-43lbs Weight Loss

Check out this amazing fat loss transformation and his name Tim Ward who worked with Top Fitness Expert Obi Obadike. Tim lost a total of 43 pounds and his personal testimonial is below:

“I started with Obi on August 2014, I was on the 8 week plan weight loss. I lost weight and I was getting the body that I wanted until thanksgiving rolled around, I ate Thanksgiving dinner with the family and I told myself that after this meal I will go to eating clean again but that never happened, Christmas rolled around and I was getting bigger and bigger but it was not in a good way. It wasn’t until Feb 24th of 2015 that I realized I was getting very fat, I was at 202 lbs and by the before picture you can tell it. I went to the doctor the week before and my cholesterol was thru the roof.

I also was looking at pictures from the holidays and this is when I knew that something really had to change. So I still had Obi’s workout routine and weight loss plan so I put it to good use. I worked very hard in the gym 5 days a week never missing a day, eating clean and doing the right things and I decided from that day forward that I would stay on the straight to be healthy and again feel good about myself. I am now at 159lbs, I lost a total 43lbs and my cholesterol is at a normal level now and I feel better than ever about myself. I just want to thank you Obi for helping me thru it all.”

Check Out this Fitness Tip on The Benefits of HIIT Cardio

Posted by webmaster on Friday Jan 30, 2015 Under General Blog
Fitness Tip: If you are efficient when you do your cardio you don’t need to do hours and hours of cardio per day. I did a 25 minute High-(Intensity-Interval-Training)HIIT cardio workout last night and a 2 minute cool-down and burned 435 calories in that limited time-frame and here is the iphone shot showing the final display.

The moral of this post is you can get an amazing fat burning cardio workout in 30 minute or less if you are efficient and don’t mind pushing yourself from an intensity perspective.

Check out this Health and Wellness Tip about Vitamin D and cancer.

Health and Wellness Tip: Some research has shown that Vitamin D3 can contribute to slowing down all forms of cancer in the early stages.

If you don’t live on the westcoast and can’t get at least 20 to 30 minutes of sunlight daily then taking some Vitamin D3 dietary supplements would help additionally.

Top Fitness Expert Obi Obadike Fitness Tip On Metabolism Decline- Photo Credit: Jason Ellis

Top Fitness Expert Obi Obadike Fitness Tip On Metabolism Decline- Photo Credit: Jason Ellis

Fitness Tip: So many people use the excuse is the reason why I have gained so much weight or I am over weight is because my metabolism is not as fast as it was when I was a teenager or when I was in my early 20’s.

I’ve heard many people older than 30 say this: “Back in the day I could get away with anything I wanted in terms of eating.” Well that is partly true!

But the real truth it is right after the age of 25 years every 10 years your metabolism drops at least 2 to 4 % and the only way to truly combat the natural metabolic decline that happens with after the age of 25 is being on a consistent (aerobic&anaerobic)  exercise and sensible balanced nutritional program.

From a long term perspective metabolic decline is typically more lifestyle related than age related.

If you preserve your lean muscle mass than you will preserve your resting metabolic rate which in turn will help you with weight management and weight loss whichever is your fitness goal.

The only way to preserve all of this collectively is through exercise and eating the right way consistently.  Not New year resolution time but all year round.

Check out his personal testimonial below on his transformation:

“After not being able to achieve the lean ripped look that I always wanted, I decided to call upon the services of Mr. Ripped himself, Obi Obadike. He assured me that I will achieve my goals and that he would be there for support along the way. I told him “let’s give it a shot for 8 weeks and we’ll take it from there”. My starting weight was 221 Lbs., after 8 weeks I was down 20 lbs. Needless to say I was stoked. Obi definitely knows his stuff, so I continued the program for another 20 weeks, for a total of 28 weeks, so I could reach my goal. And the results were amazing. I have achieved a 50 Lb weight loss, down to 171 Lbs.

I really appreciated how Obi tailored a specific diet and exercise routine, to fit my needs. Supporting me along the way to make sure I stayed on track. Obi really impressed me with how he changed up the program so you can see constant results, not once did I plateau. I also want to thank my family for their support for helping me achieve my goals, helping with my diet for this period of time. I would highly recommend this program for anyone looking to achieve there fitness goals. Obi’s immense knowledge and coaching made him a pleasure to work with. Thanks again Obi, my friend, this has been a truly rewarding experience ! “
