The personal trainer to such celebrities as Halle Berry, Christian Slater, and Angela Bassett presents his amazing five-week program for achieving a celebrity body by working out less and eating more.
If you're eating three meals a day, exercising an hour or more a day at the gym, and not getting results, you're eating too little and working out too much.
Harley Pasternak's Five Factor Fitness shows the five moves for the five/five-minute workout cycles (totaling twenty-five minutes) five days a week. Pasternak explains how to do this at home or at the gym through detailed instructions and illustrations. He includes recipes and a five-week meal plan for the five meals a day, and each meal takes just five minutes to prepare. Nothing in the recipes requires a trip to a specialty or health food store.
In five weeks, you'll have the celebrity body you've always dreamed of, and it won't have taken much of your time.

One of the most sought after trainers among celebrities, Harley Pasternak holds a Masters of Science in Exercise Physiology and Nutritional Sciences from the University of Toronto and an Honors degree in Kinesiology from University of Western Ontario. He is also certified by The American College of Sports Medicine and The Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology. His clients include Halle Berry, Benjamin Bratt, Orlando Bloom, Eve, Val Kilmer, Jim Caviezel, Rick Fox, Robert Downey, Jr., Stephen Dorff and Eliza Dushku.
Pasternak is a popular speaker who advises a number of professional organizations, including the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA), the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology, the Canadian Health and Food Association and the Canadian Academy of Sports Medicine. He has recently completed exercise and nutrition research for the Canadian Department of National Defense. He has consulted with several large companies in the U.S., including SlimFast, Nutros, Gold's Gym USA, Icarian, New York Sports Clubs, Isatori Labs Proctor & Gamble and Precor.
His work is frequently published in academic and lay journals and he contributed to the top-selling book, ABSolution: The Practical Solution for Building Your Best Abs. In his capacity as a trainer, Pasternak has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Access Hollywood, E! and in People, Glamour, InStyle, Us Weekly, InTouch, Men's Health, Jane, New York Post, among other publications.
Actors Halle Berry and Benjamin Bratt, pro basketball player Rick Fox and rapper Eve all work out 25 minutes a day, five days a week. They eat five meals a day, and each meal takes five minutes to prepare. And they look like a million bucks. Although this sounds too good to be true, Pasternak, who trains the above-mentioned stars and others, insists it isn’t. This easy-to-follow lifestyle guide explains Pasternak’s program. Intensity and variety are the keystones of the exercise portion, which simply requires dumbbells and a bench (the plan does include a suspiciously scant five minutes of cardiovascular activity, which readers can complete by power walking or jogging outside, or using a cardio machine at home or at the gym). The diet portion of the plan seems sensible enough; Pasternak urges readers to eat foods that include low-fat, quality protein; moderate carbs; fiber and healthy fat; and to drink sugar-free beverages (he allows one day a week to be a "cheat day"). "Real results" sidebars profile non-famous people who’ve benefited from Pasternak’s approach, including a 74-year-old professor, a 45-year-old film producer and a 37-year-old real estate agent. Backed up with scientific research and including recipes, this book is a refreshingly simple addition to the current diet and health offerings.
