The reason I gave 2 star is that, on page 124, under the heading "Why isn't steady state cardio best for fat loss?, the authors has mentioned that slow cardio leads to increase the levels of stress hormone "Cortisol" which leads to deposition of belly fat. It is only possible if you have a Cortisole secreting tumor or you are injecting/eating Cortisole/steroids. Many peope rely on steady state cardio as their only exercise. It is not fair to say that it deposit belly fat.

Cortisole is not the only stress hormone. The role of Cortisole is opposite to insulin, in the sense that insulin promotes entry of glucose in to the cells thus lowering the blood glucose level and Cortisole actually inceases the blood glucose level via "Gluconeogenesis" meaning formation of glucose from non carbohydrate source like fatty acids, glucogenic amino acids, pyruvate and lactate. Meaning you will loose fat during this kind of stress/exercise. The exercising muscles are permeable to glucose and no career(insulin) is required at that moment. Lets say you just finished working out so what is going to happen to the glucose in you blood stream? It will be taken up but the liver to form glycogen and will be stored to be supplied during starvation/stress to maintain blood glucose level. It is not the cortisole or steady state cardio to blame. You wanna loose weight then your calorie intake should be lowered than what you spend and steady state cardio or any other exercise will help with that. Ensure right nutrition with that.

I am a Neurosurgeon and I have read this book end to end. I went back to my physiology books and also searched online as well and therefore decided that it is important that this nonsense should be highlighted that steady state cardio leads to belly fat deposition.

Bought this for mu husband for his 77th birthday (he is a body builder even at his age) and he absolutely loves it. The improvement since following the programme has been amazing.

good series of books, with helpful depictions of exercises and even a suggested diet plan (nothing too groundbreaking but still good for essentially a gym / exercise booklet)
