    There really is a science to eating well and gaining muscle mass and losing weight When I lost the majority of my weight, I had to really watch my macro nutrients I kept track of how much protein, carbs and fats as a percentage of my total calories in a day and needed to ensure I kept in a very specific ratio for both losing weight and maintaining muscle It worked really well for me.This book dives into a greater knowledge of those macro nutrients, why they are so important and how to use There really is a science to eating well and gaining muscle mass and losing weight When I lost the majority of my weight, I had to really watch my macro nutrients I kept track of how much protein, carbs and fats as a percentage of my total calories in a day and needed to ensure I kept in a very specific ratio for both losing weight and maintaining muscle It worked really well for me.This book dives into a greater knowledge of those macro nutrients, why they are so important and how to use them to achieve your body goals You can choose from one of four plans maintenance, strength, muscular endurance and power and explosion You are told your total calories for the day and the percentage of carbs, protein and fats For example the strength plan sees your carbs at 40%, protein 30% and fats at 30% of your daily caloric intake when I was losing weight my protein was 40%, carbs 30% and fats 30% for example The key is in counting and keeping track While this book has a breakdown for each recipe if you don t track everything you intake, it wont be helpful.After a sound background into the meal plans, nutrition, sample meal plans Chris gives us 100 recipes that are easy to make, full of nutrients and help you meet your goal There are sections for breakfast, entrees, salads sides, sandwiches steaks and smoothies, shakes desserts my favourites Each recipe is on its own page and also comes with its own nutritional break down for calories, fat, carbs and protein The recipes are for the most part very simple to follow usually only a few steps , some items you will have to purchase specially but if you follow a healthy diet you should have many of these items at home.This is an excellent resource and recipe book for men and women, who are looking to improve their health, increase their nutrition knowledge and focus on giving their body the fuel it needs to meet their goals While easy to follow mostly because of the fantastic writing it is jam packed with knowledge and tools that you need to succeed with your goals A must have for every health conscious individual

    I am very impressed with this cookbook it delivers I love that it includes very detailed meal plans Many times recipes are included but not enough information on how to incorporate the information in a daily routine Not so with this one Everything is played out easy to follow with wonderful and appealing pictures They make every recipe look delicious even when it was ingredients I wasn t sure about I have made several and been pleasantly surprised they are as good as they look I also love I am very impressed with this cookbook it delivers I love that it includes very detailed meal plans Many times recipes are included but not enough information on how to incorporate the information in a daily routine Not so with this one Everything is played out easy to follow with wonderful and appealing pictures They make every recipe look delicious even when it was ingredients I wasn t sure about I have made several and been pleasantly surprised they are as good as they look I also love that it breaks down the usable protein and nutrients I feel this is exceptionally well played out information Do keep in mind the cookbook is designed for weight lifters or athletes that need high protein and proper fat ratios to build muscle It is not designed for weight loss alone and excercise is key to successful results Another great plus this cookbook has easy to follow recipes with short prep times which is perfect for a busy lifestyle Absolutely perfect for busy athleteneeding to maximize nutrition and working out I would absolutely recommend this cookbook I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review and as a mother of four sons all interested in top athletic performance it will no doubt be a favorite book for years to come
