Book Description

If you want to know how to build muscle and burn fat by eating healthy, delicious meals that are easy to cook and easy on your wallet, then you want to read this book.

Do you lack confidence in the kitchen and think that you just can't cook great food?

Are you not sure of how to prepare food that is not only delicious and healthy but also effective in helping you build muscle and lose fat?

Are you afraid that cooking nutritious, restaurant-quality meals is too time-consuming and expensive?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, don't worry--you're not alone. And this book is the answer: With it, you can cook fast, healthy, and tasty meals every day (and on a reasonable budget) that will help you build muscle or lose weight, regardless of your current skills.

The Shredded Chef is more than just a bunch of recipes, though. It's going to teach you the true scientific basics of gaining muscle and losing fat, because bad diet advice is an epidemic these days.

In this book, you're going to learn how to eat right without having to obsess over every calorie. These 9 scientifically proven rules for eating are the foundation of every great physique, and they have nothing to do with following weird diets or depriving yourself of everything that tastes good.

And the recipes themselves? In this book you'll find 114 healthy, flavorful recipes specifically designed for athletes that want to build muscle or lose fat. Regardless of your fitness goals, this book has got you covered.

Here's a "sneak peek" of the recipes you'll find inside:

  • 7 hearty, healthy pasta recipes like Chicken Pesto Pasta, Asparagus & Goat Cheese Pasta, Classic Pasta Bolognese, Beef Lasagna, Chicken Fettuccine with Mushrooms, and more. Each of the pasta dishes are high in protein, making them great muscle-building treats.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book 23 Jan 2013
By Chris
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has alot of really tasty, simple to prepare recipes. I'm a terrible cook and even I manage to put the dishes together. I bought the book in order to burn fat and get lean. I weighed 157 pounds and after two weeks I dropped 5 pounds. And thats without ever being hungry and without having to eat rabbit food all the time. It also gives a simple calculation at the beginning so you know exactly how many grams of fat, carbs and proteins you should consume each day, I found this really helpful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent recipes, no illustrations 8 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this item as I would like to vary my diet from the monotony of eating plain boring foods to gain muscle and lose fat. So far I have tried the Indian Chicken curry, I found it easy to make and delicious. There is a great variety of meals, and I'm looking forward to working my way through them.

The only hang up on this product is that it's missing photographs of the finished meals which is something I like in a cook book, I can only think that the lack of photos is because of frugality and trying to keep the costs of printing low. I would recommend this cook book but if an alternative is available with illustrations I would probably buy that one instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, let's hope I get the look! 27 July 2014
By thomas
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ok bought this book on Saturday. ... It came the next day... Sunday... firstly I was amazed at a Sunday delivery!

The book itself... I'm not a big fan on reading or cooking... but I like to eat (probably what got me into trouble in the first place ) I've jumped from diet fad to diet fad only to fall off the wagon either because the food suggestions are horrible or just too time consuming... thought I'd just have a quick glance through only to find I read the whole thing from cover to cover... deffo an informative and enjoyable read. Mike really does give it without the bull. The only supplement I can remember he mentioned was whey protein (considered a supplement? I would say so) I'm really excited to get cooking and more importantly loss weight. I'm currently 17st 6 lbs and 6ft 1 so I have lots to achieve. Going to run this along with my second bout of the insanity work out. I'll update this review at day 30 and 60 and tell you how this book combined with insanity worked for me. Thanks Mike! (My first amazon review)

5.0 out of 5 stars Which recipe to start with?? 29 Nov 2013
By Avestap
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Again great explanations on why and what to eat. There are so many recipes in this book that I'd like to try I don't know where to start. Love the breakdown of recipes for getting bigger or leaner. Also the amount of carbs, protein and fats in each recipe makes choosing really easy. The bonus spreadsheet at the end of the book is amazing - no trawling the book for the correct amount of carbs etc it's all there in a list.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book, but why 3 stars 17 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say that this book is great... I love the recipes in here and love the layout. In fact both my wife and I use this for many of dishes at home now... I even follow allot of the suggestions in here.

So why the 3 stars. Well being the only carnivorous in my household it is difficult to fit the suggestions with my family life as largely we cook vegetarian foods and there is a lack of vegetarian recipes in here. But apart from that it is a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz up your meals 16 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for jazzing up what can be a life of chicken, broccoli and rice. I have tried a few recipes, the curried potato and cauliflower is delicious. Easy to follow recipes which turn out as they should. If you are in training and are struggling with your choice of meals this is a great book to make eating a pleasure.
