I had high hopes for this book. It didn't cover much in the way of new ground but if you haven't heard of intermittent fasting its not a bad primer. There are lots of chapters of twaddle that in the end is simply padding. If you have been following lean gains / eat stop eat then I would suggest there is nothing here for you. If those names mean nothing to you then give the book a try. It's style is painful but there is a valuable message buried in the babble.

The online fitness community has come a long way from the meathead gym bunny exercise machines of the 80s, and this isn't reflected in the content of fitness magazines, as the authors are keen to point out. This is one of the few books to build a combined diet and exercise programme based on what we know about hormones (insulin, cortisol, HGH, etc), and not the over-simplistic (and false) "calories in, calories out" calculations.

So far, so good.

However, I have to criticise the content. The first 60% of the book consists of a marketing pitch for the programme; as such, it is almost content free. It is a blend of sales jargon, Joseph Campbell woo-woo mystique, pop culture, leavened with a fair amount of swearing. As such, clearly aimed at a teen audience.

The second part is the programme. It goes over the calculations needed for your diet in detail, with example menus - in body builder style, such as eight egg omelettes! This is followed by the exercise routines, involving mainly free weights, but some gym machines, and I think it would require a gym to follow (for a spotter, etc). There is minimal cardio.

So, a mixed review. I'm not 100% sure of the science, but it is considerably better than a lot of these. I'm confident that the programme will be effective, even though I haven't followed it. But you still have to get through the juvenile first part. Perhaps a two or three page appendix could usefully be added to summarise all the science?

I should say I am 68 but in pretty good condition and on no medication. I had lost around 6 kilos of fat simply by reducing carbohydrate intake but was interested to know how to deal with the plateau effect I expected. Although this book is clearly aimed at much younger customers I felt the principles should apply as long as I was careful. I did the fasts. I did the binges.I did the calculations. I followed the exercise recommendations and the dietary principles. All of this, I may say while wondering why fitness gave the authors such a poor prose style and such a grumpy temperament. After around 10 weeks I had lost very little fat ( about 1 kilo) and gained no muscle. Perhaps at my age that is not possible but their book certainly does not say there is an age barrier.
I don`t disbelieve the success they claim with clients. If you persuade an overweight person to reduce carbs, increase good fats and protein and exercise and sleep regularly he/she will lose fat. If young and genetically so disposed he will gain muscle.
I noticed I was becoming less relaxed and sleeping less well. Libido dropped ( which is still important at 68). I have reverted to a normal pattern of meals, continuing a lower carb intake than before losing weight, and have felt much happier. Old-style bodybuilders like Jack LaLanne, Charles Atlas, John Grimek and Bob Delmonteque lived long,happy, expletive-free lives with magnificent physiques, no fasting, a sense of humour and a decent prose style. They had never heard of leptin and ghrelin .

I have read this book and can say it is very much a disappointing read. Promises you so much but does not deliver. The only "alpha" info it gives you is to change your perception of what an alpha is and the leaves the rest of the promises to be fulfilled once you got your hormones sorted out with their diet. Of which the "research" they claim to back up they're opinions has no references so could easily be out of context.

The diet plan is ok I already fast for almost 16 hours each day so this was no big deal for me. The problem came with cutting out all carbs. After looking at all the foods I can and could start eating on my budget is seemed only eggs and bacon were the two things that did not contain carbs. The higher fat intake as well was bad for me as it made me feel very ill. I loosely stick to the diet with fasting and I watch my carbs but I am not going to stick fully to it for a number for health reasons and the limited foods I can eat.

The workouts in this book are nothing new and I have to say I knew most of these already. After looking at them and trying them out it does not feel all that great for building muscle but more to "tone" up all the muscle you already have by help you loose weight.

The book only ever seems to go on about loosing weight, if you are a big fella then this book will be for you but for someone like my self. Who you could argue is "lean" (7.5% body fat) my main focus is on trying to gain muscle and not loosing body fat.

I have been roughly following the diet and fully following it's work out guide for a 2 and a half weeks and it is not for me. If anything I have lost muscle (yes muscle not fat) since following this book!
