Feb 10, 2013 - Mixing memoir, a wellness program, and inspirational advice, Randy Jacksonâ€™s book is a work of personal passion. The American Idol judgeâ€™s struggles with his health and weight have been well- documented; heâ€™s tried every diet, spent countless hours in gyms, and even had gastric bypass surgery in 2003. Now, heâ€™s taken all that heâ€™s learned throughout these trials and codified their strengths into an easy-to-follow, super-useful maintenance regimen, filled with meal plans (drawn from the accompanying recipes for healthy versions of down-home Southern favorites), exercise routines, and inspiring stories from his unique life as one of the music business greats. With his New You Plan, Randy Jackson aims to focus on the epidemic of obesity-related disorders like hypertension, heart disease, and diabetesâ€”as a Type II diabetic himself, he knows that this effort is now more crucial than ever. Straight from the â€œdawg poundâ€ this is Randy at his most passionate and at his most persuasive, all in the effort to make America â€œaâ€™ightâ€ once again.
