Overview

With this powerful body transformation program, you will discover how to kick your metabolism into high gear and replace flab with lean, fat-burning muscle-in just 8 weeks!

Revving up the body so that it optimizes nutrition and turns flab into lean body mass can be accomplished easily and quickly--and at any age, even after the body's metabolism has supposedly slowed down. That's what sought-after fitness trainer and nutrition expert John Berardi demonstrates in this new book.

Drawing on the best scientific research, including his own ongoing studies, Berardi has developed a supremely effective plan that enables his clients--who include athletes, models, and ordinary men and women of different fitness levels--to stoke their metabolic fires, burn more calories, build lean muscle, and improve their health, too! This unique three-pronged program includes:

  • the Nutrition Plan, which provides recipes and meal plans that offer readers the foods that will teach their bodies to burn fat for fuel
  • the Exercise Plan, which combines interval exercise and strength training to enable readers to burn more calories not only while they are working out but also after exercise
  • the Supplement Plan, which identifies the essential compounds that kick the metabolism into high gear and improve general well-being

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Age-related weight gain is whittled down to size in this guide to boosting metabolism. Berardi's (Scrawny to Brawny) formula is basic: diet, exercise and supplements to build muscle and burn calories. He relates a common scenario: with age come sedentary lifestyles, convenience foods and increased stress. While many people actually eat less as they age, Berardi says, at the end of their 20s they begin to lose five to 10 pounds of muscle each decade. The results: weight gain, free radical damage and greater risk for serious health conditions. He points out that eating fewer calories is self-defeating, while eating more of the right foods at the right time and targeted supplementation increase metabolism even for those genetically disposed to lower rates. Since muscle burns calories most efficiently, exercise is the core of the program. Berardi, who has trained professional athletes, is a congenial coach, but the five hours per week of strength training (weights) and cardio workouts may be an obstacle for those not already exercising regularly. Still, Berardi provides tools for keeping on point meal plans, recipes, routines and options to customize and his promise of never counting calories again just might motivate readers to invest in a gym membership.
