For more than 20 years, Men’s Health has been America’s number one source of health, fitness, and weight loss information. Its editors have tested every workout, chowed down on every food, and consulted the top exercise and nutrition experts in the world. Now, this valuable expertise is boiled down into one plan that will revolutionize weight loss: The Men’s Health Diet is a proven program backed by cutting-edge research that works with a reader’s body to build muscle and shed pounds—in just 27 days.
This unique program features 7 supersimple Rules of the Ripped—scientifically proven, breakthrough strategies that often run counter to standard “diet” advice (like Rule #7: Eat whatever you want at least 20 percent of the time!). Built around 8 “Fast & Lean” superfood groups, The Men’s Health Diet is so easy, so effective, readers can’t help but turn fat into muscle and stay strong and lean for life.
Features include: 101 Tips That Will Change Your Life in 10 Seconds or Less; The Men’s Health Muscle System exercise plan; and the 250 Best Foods for Men. Packed with easy-to-prepare recipes, hundreds of helpful tips, and weekly workout plans, this is the ultimate secret weapon for a stronger, leaner, more muscular body.
This book does a good job explaining the fundamentals of getting lean, healthy, and vital.
It will show you how to change what you eat, not how much you eat, and lose weight and feel better.
It will show you what types of food to include in your diet and how they help you, and what foods to avoid and why they harm you.
It will show you how to gauge your current fitness level so you can follow the program and then re-test to see how you're doing.
It will show you some a simple workout program that will help you get on the road to being lean, muscular, and strong.
It will give you some good supplement advice on what inexpensive dietary supplements you can take to significantly improve your performance and health.
A few chapters were kind of "meh," such as the Magyver's Fridge one, the sex chapter, and the recipes. But there was plenty of helpful information throughout to offset this.
If you want to get a good education on the fundamentals of getting shredded, then I recommend this book. It fell a bit short in terms of workout programs and calculating an actual diet (it says you don't have to, but this will only work to a point). If you want to know how to work out and eat for maximum muscle gains and fat loss, then I recommend Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body (The Lean Muscle Series)--ESPECIALLY if you're new to training or short on time.
