About the Ultimate Diet 2.0
Lean dieters (men at 10-12% or women at 15-17%) trying to get extremely lean face many potential problems. They face muscle or performance loss, crashing hormone levels, runaway hunger and many others. These are simply the difficulties that the non genetically elite or natural dieter must face. The Ultimate Diet 2.0 offers a solution.
The diet itself includes two discrete phases: fat loss and muscle gain. The fat loss phase generates maximum fat loss without muscle loss. In contrast, the muscle gain phase creates an anabolic rebound to build muscle. Each phase coordinates training, nutrition and supplements to optimize the goals of that phase.
Topics in the Book
Before getting to the diet, The Ultimate Diet 2.0 examines the physiological reasons getting extremely lean is so difficult. This includes a discussion of calorie partitioning along with the hormonal changes that occur during dieting.
The processes of both fat loss and muscle gain are described. As well, the book examines different general training systems in terms of why they all seem to work.
Finally, the diet itself is described. This includes an overview of the full cycle along with detailed examinations of each phase. Every component of the diet in terms of how to train and what to eat are laid out in detail. Nothing is left to chance.
Like The Stubborn Fat Solution, The Ultimate Diet 2.0, 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 Ultimate Diet 2.0 Addendum is included with your purchase and covers a number of important topics. The first is a 2-week break-in period meant to make transition into the diet easier. Information for what to do between dieting blocks is also provided. The book also addresses how to move to maintenance eating when the diet is over. Finally, it offers expanded information on how to adapt the UD2 for endurance or strength/power sports.
