Research shows that although people can lose 5 to 10 percent of their body weight on any given diet, dieting itself is a consistent predictor of future weight gain. Why? At some point, everyone stops dieting. The Lean Muscle Diet solves the sustainability problem while offering immediate results. It's simple: act as if you already have the body you want. If you are, say, a 220-pound man who wants to become a muscular 180-pounder, you then use The Lean Muscle Diet 's formula to eat and train to sustain a 180-pound body. The transformation begins immediately, and the results last for life. Lou Schuler, who has sold more than one million copies of his fitness books worldwide, and Alan Aragon, nutrition advisor to Men's Health, have created an eating and "metabolically expensive" exercise plan designed to melt fat while building muscle. The best part? The plan allows readers to eat their favorite foods, no matter how decadent. With full support from Men's Health, The Lean Muscle Diet delivers a simple--and simply sustainable -- body transformation plan anyone can use.

I read this book after working my way through Schuler's New Rules of Lifting for Women. I read it mostly for the lifting routines, rather than for dietary advice, and I've found it to be interesting and entertaining. I would recommend any of his books for lifters looking to improve their success in the gym with accurate, thoughtful information based on the latest science. Schuler isn't afraid to say what he has science to back up and what just seems right based on personal experience and anecdotal evidence at the gym. I appreciate that he's so straight-forward about his sources, as it empowers me to make up my own mind.

I will note that this book is clearly written for a male audience, and there are moments that might make a woman giggle to herself while she's reading. I can honestly say I've never been given the advice before to "bring my testicles with me" for a workout!
