I really enjoyed Natural Hormonal Enhancement by Rob Faigan. It is a bodybuilding book but the diet is a little different from what most of us have come to accept.

UD 2.0 by Lyle McDonald. I would rather read that than just about any other diet book. The explanations are well worded and comprehensive.

Burn the fat feed the muscle. By Tom Venuto, I thought this did a very good job breaking down lots of common myths of dieting, as well as informing the reader on why they are going to benefit from different choices in caloric intake, and how foods work.

Thanks for all the info.
I bought Burn the Fat and Feed the Muscle. An excellant book and I even learned a thing or two out of it.

Its a good book, but his diagrams in the book are hard to understand. Also he says in there that you don't count calories on his plan, but you do count macronutrients, so you are inadvertingly counting calories. I agree its a very good book though.Originally Posted by Funny Monkey

Im not ghost but ill answer it as you'd like an answer:
day 1 1gm pro, 1gm cho -per lb of bodyweight and 40gms fat a day max
do this for 4 days in a row with subsequent interval training and weight lifting.
day 5 have 400gm's clean cho and normal pro/fat requirments.
then repeat - strength gains are common but hypertrophy is not going to be there.
cardio will burn cals no matter when you do it so dont fall for the a.m fasted cardio- especailly with interval running/cycling/swimming - limited daily cals plus expenditure will mean more then this "idea" and will reduce injury and catabolism etc etc from fasted cardio

Hey JinK I have noticed allot lately that many are against the am fasting cardio especailly when you use interval training. Why is this? I have always thought this was the way to go for optimum fat loss. I also amion load b4 and after cardio on an empty stomach but again I remember someone saying that it was a waste? Why? I am always trying to learn and improve, I even once hired a personel trainer that told me to do what I am asking about.Originally Posted by JINKK
I bought the bodyyopus book many years ago, but it was really tought to hold to it. It worked while I did it but was really hard on my body while doing it.
