The Stubborn Fat Solution


Lean dieters have struggled with the problem of stubborn lower body and abdominal fat for years. While many simplistic explanations and solutions have been offered, most were based on lore rather than science.

The Stubborn Fat Solution provides an in-depth examination of all aspects of fat cell physiology.  This includes basic metabolism along with a discussion of what makes some types of fat more stubborn than others.

This all leads into the description of  four specific training protocols, along with nutrition and supplements, that can help to get rid of stubborn fat once and for all.

The Stubborn Fat Solution

Lean dieters have long struggled with losing “stubborn” bodyfat.  For men, this is typically the lower abdominal and low-back area.  For women, the hips and thighs are invariably the most difficult to lose.

Stubborn fat is stubborn for a number of inter-related physiological reasons such as hormone receptor number or blood flow.   Those and others combine to make losing stubborn fat difficult or (seemingly) impossible.

Over the years, numerous sources have offered approaches to deal with stubborn fat.   Most were based on simple (and wrong) physiology and they never did much.    The Stubborn Fat Solution is the first book to address the topic scientifically and provide solutions that actually work.

The factors that cause stubborn fat in the first place are all addressed in detail.  More importantly, the book provides specific solutions to the problem.  This includes dietary changes, four targeted exercise protocols and specific supplements to lose stubborn fat once and for all.

Like The Ultimate Diet 2.0, The Stubborn Fat Solution is aimed at lean dieters trying to achieve extreme levels of leanness.  Dieters will not benefit from the approaches in The Stubborn Fat Solution until they are very lean.  Men should be at 10-12% bodyfat and women at 15-17% before using the information in this book.

The Stubborn Fat Solution is also available as part of The Ultimate Leanness Program.

Professional Feedback

“This book is NOT for people who only want to get rid of a little flab around their waist, this is a book for individuals who are already lean but struggling to get that last bit of stubborn body fat off to reach the pinnacle of conditioning for a competition, photoshoot and let’s be honest here – pure vanity. True to its name, The Stubborn Fat Solution is the product of Lyle McDonald’s years and years of research into why stubborn fat cells are so stubborn, and how to once and for all get rid of it.

The book first delves into the physiology, where mechanisms on the micro-level is explained in simple layman’s terms, and then transitions into specific dieting, supplementation and training rules – providing you with four different protocols proportionally increasing in brutal intensity – AND effectiveness.

I have been fortunate enough to try out these methods on both myself and a selection of athletes and lifters as part of Lyle’s research for the book, and although you might be filled with an intense hate for the name Lyle McDonald when you shed blood, tears and sweat to make it through one the protocols of this madman, you will praise his name when you finally see that last bit of fat around your waist, hips and legs vanishing before your eyes.” Borge (aka Blade) – Norway – MyoRevolution

  1. Madcoweater

    Yes, yes & yes! Crazy detailed information.
    If you compete, practice whats written and there will be no competition…

  2. Eric

    I can look back and compare competition diets with and without the protocols in this book and without hesitation say this always improved the success of my diets. Lyle does a great job of breaking down the science of stubborn bodyfat and how to get rid of it with cardio, supplementation, and diet. I never diet below 10% any more without doing what I learned in this book.

  3. Muharrem Mehmet Gökçeler

    Excellent. This book should be the bible of all aiming to lose fat and if interested understand the science behind it. Features absolutely priceless information.
