Présentation de l'éditeur
CrossFit celebrity Christmas Abbott shows how to attain the body of your dreams with a targeted eating strategy and total-body workout plan that will whip glutes and hips—and every problem area—into top shape.
As a formerly “skinny fat” woman, Christmas Abbott knows what real women need to get the butt and body of their dreams. In The Badass Body Diet, she dispels the myth of the health benefits of a “pear shape” body, teaches readers how to spot-reduce excess fat with targeted meal plans and recipes that zap cellulite, and galvanizes them with a quick and simple workout plan for a toned butt—the key to total body fitness.
Your “glutes” (the technical term for booty) are the body’s largest and most powerful muscle group—and one of the most beautiful—but they can go dormant, flat, and flabby. Packed with essential information, and inspirational before-and-after photos of her clients, The Badass Body Diet shows how to whip that butt into shape and provides essential information on how to:
- Select essential “booty foods”—the right proteins, fats, and carbs
- Experience a total body workout with an easy-to-follow, powerful exercise program
- Improve posture and functional mobility and enhance overall health
- Target cellulite through diet, workout strategies, and other proven tips
- And much more.
Unlike most “one approach fits all” diet and exercise books, The Badass Body Diet identifies the three types of dieters that Christmas has discovered working with hundreds of clients at her CrossFit gyms—Modifiers, Gainers, and Maintainers—and tailors her approach to each, providing specific goals for maximum results. Stop obsessing about a flat belly, Christmas advises. A Badass Body is a birthright, and it starts at the bottom—with a trim and tight tush.

The book is approachable in language and structure: simple but well written and all content well explained. Christmas didn't go into many details nor deep explanations but in my opinion, she gets the points well presented. If one wants more details, one could google and get more technical info ino sports physiology or other relevant topics. I like that the diet is split into different objectives: maintain, gain, modify and minimalistic (for those who have no time or don't bother in being too strict with the food measuring); and also body sizes (the tallest the person, the more food he/she requires). I love the idea of categorizing food into "bricks" in order to build meals. I think that was such an easy way to approach and follow-up the diet! When I saw the portfolio of exercise I thought "this can't be serious!"; these looked way too easy for someone that has training experience. She introduced three levels of training depending on one's fitness and the workouts are short, being the longest 20 mins only... some are even 6 minutes (seriously????). Nevertheless, the idea of having 24 different workouts in a months looked interesting and fun. I decided to give all a try and start from the very beginning like if I didn't have experience, just to get the feel of it. I also do once a week weight lifting (not very heavy) and I also hike and walk a lot.
I have been a month and a half following her diet and exercise program (I have follow the minimalistic plan for a 1.55cm woman). My summary of changes come here:
- Following up her brick program is easy. I like that. I stored in my mobile the list of the bricks and the amount of bricks I need for my diet and complexion and I take a peek anytime I am not sure of how much I should eat.
- Eating many times a day (i eat between 5-6 times) makes it easy to keep hunger and cravings controlled.
- However, it requires planning and contingency to have the "right" food available on hand, specially if one doesn't have a supermarket nearby.
- Yes, each exercise is simple but the combination of them is not easy at all, those workouts are really badass! I like the fact that, from the very first workout, I had to eat my "this can't be serious!"... this was way serious. I mean, I didn't struggle that much doing the exercises because I had previous training experience but I felt the muscles working, I felt the difficulty and for a beginner it will be definitely hard. I am in the middle level now and in a couple of workouts I did struggle.... I can't imagine how it will be when I get to the advanced level.
- The exercises are perfect for those who want to train in any given unexpected and available place and time. No equipment required (well, does a jump rope count as equipment?).
- I definitely have seen changes: my hips got narrower and I know this because of my clothes (I don't measure myself), my legs look leaner and my cellulite (I admit it: although I am sporty and train I have stubborn cellulite in my booty side) has decreased a lot. I am looking much leaner overall.
- Because I am taking the "minimalistic" program, I know results may take longer but I have no rush, I prefer to take it at my own pace. I like my body as it looks even if it is not perfect (with cellulite and all) and I have no rush to see changes. My motivation is to overcome my muscle unbalances and go back to running (i miss it a lot). But that being said, I do think that following her modifier program could show results very quickly.
For those who want something simple, approachable and that suits busy schedules, I recommend this book and this program. Remember that it is all about PATIENCE; in my opinion, changing many many years of bad habits, sedentary lifestyle or dormant muscles into a desired shaped body is NOT going to take 3 weeks. But one can see important changes in 3 weeks, and even more in 6 weeks and perhaps by the time you are 3 or 6 months into a program you can really say "This mission looks like being accomplished anytime soon".
I think I calculated what my "Maintain Force Frame" daily caloric intake of 12 bricks to be 1062 kcal per day. Yeah no, I lift AND run marathons, I'll be falling asleep after mile 2 with that diet. I currently measure my food most times and a chicken tenderloins I get from Costco are 4oz each. and those are TINY. She expects us to eat 2.5oz for LUNCH? That is 76 kcal according to most calories tracker websites. All the other research I've done for muscle building and lifting, macros (for me of 5'4" and around 18-22% body fat depending on my training) usually come around to about 250g carbs, 100g protein, and 45g fat. So of course Fat Molly who wanted to fit in her wedding dress in six months' time achieved that in 30 days, she probably also looked like a zombie after and had daggers in her eyes and passed out when walking down the aisle.
I had to put the book down after perusing more and checking out the recipes only to find the sub-par caloric intake to be consistent and continued to find terrible math and grammar typos. Because apparently 5g divided by 5 = 0 (page 74). This may make me stop following Abbott as a role model, because clearly she is not doling out sound health advice.
She shares a lot that will surprise you
Her training and nutrition approach is not for everyone but fits me lifestyle and thought process,
