So if you're looking to get in shape and look great, then I think I can help you. I hope you enjoy my books and I'd love to hear from you at my site, www.muscleforlife.com.

Sincerely,

Mike

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.

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)

I have only recently bought this book with the aim of muscle-building and am just working my way reading through the section before the recipes before actually cooking anything.

I did email the author before purchasing this edition about when he imagined the next version with illustrative photos would be released and he said probably in the first quarter of 2015. In the end I decided just to buy it anyway. But I was confused about whether I'd receive a US or UK version. However, the book I've received seems to be a UK version yet it does favour the US system of using cups for measuring out rather than weights. I'm hoping that if you set aside one cup to use just for this purpose and never veer from it then this should be alright but to be honest I'd rather it referred to weights and measures rather than volume.

As for the lack of photos, I rationalised that, whilst most cookbooks do usually have an illustration for explanatory purposes I really don't mind the lack of them so much here. This is because none of the recipes seem overly technical so you should be able to imagine what the end result looks like from the ingredients and method, and also because surely the whole motivation behind cooking them is to either build muscle or lose weight? The lack of photos keeps printing costs down and I was therefore able to buy this as well as Bigger, Leaner, Stronger for little over a tenner.

One reviewer berated the 'obscure ingredients' used for a lot of recipes in the book; all I can say is that this version must have been updated considerably because the only thing I had no idea of what it was was 'Half & Half', but through Googling I found that it's a US brand name for a low fat cream substitute and there are ways you can make something similar yourself.

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.

Peace

Some great ideas.... Just wish some one would do a UK specific version of this kind of book, some ingredients different or hard to get..... Also have to convert the measurements in to metric.

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.

Having had this book for about 3 months, I thought I should finally give it a review.
PROS:
-So far I've tried quite a few of the recipes and I've found them all easy to prepare, like REALLY easy - and I'm a God-awful cook.
-The dishes I've tried have all been delicious.
-There's a great variety of dishes - which include practically everything you could imagine; from porridge/oatmeal to protein shakes to meatloaf to something as simple as a chicken salad sandwich.
-Has recipes for 'getting big' or 'getting lean', so that's nice.
-I only have some pretty grim tasting pea protein powder at the moment and when mixed with either vanilla essence or cocoa powder (like when the recipe needs vanilla or chocolate protein powder) it still just about works.
-The dishes are all nutritious, high in protein, etc.
-It's really nice having calories, and nutritional info along side the recipes.
-There's a sweet potato pancake recipe which is perhaps one of the best things I have ever eaten.
CONS:
-In quite a few recipes it measures protein powder in 'scoops' which is a bit vague. I've had different size protein powder scoopers(?) in the past. My current scoop is around 60ml/1 quarter of a cup. This measurement is working just fine for me.
-I feel like the use of some 'substitute' ingredients (eg: low fat cheese) is unnecessary, but that is purely my personal preference, others may prefer these ingredients, but for me the low fat, low sugar, low whatever stuff is a bit unnecessary. Nothing bad meant to the author - this is just me being a tad fussy.
CONCLUSION:
I feel this book is well worth the money - when I got it it was about £6 (I think) and that was so worth it, just for the countless times this has been my go-to book of choice.
