Worked for me,

I have been struggling with weight problems my whole life and have family history of heart problems so was very reluctant to try a low carb lifestyle.
Living in a ski resort, most people I know are very fit and active. As a 35 year old man over 320 pounds I would still tell you that I was more active then most (skiing over 50 day per season, biking to work most days in summer, ect..) but I was still packing on the pounds. Men's Health has been my bible for the last 10 years trying to eat `clean' meals. I no longer buy things that come in a box or a can no fast food, but still gaining weight. I had come to accept that I will always be big and it will always be a struggle to keep weight under control.
June 19th 2007 I started the TNT plan A my weight was over 320 the last time I was in the gym and my pants were pushing 48. Today, January 4h the scale says 270 and pants size is well.. 40 is a bit big and 38 still a bit snug.. I'm close to about the halfway point and feel great, ski better, look better then I can remember.
I owe Adam more then the few dollars it costs to buy this book, it has been life changing for the better.
The workout plan is easy to get though.. sorry its not easy, but you can get it done fast. Your results after a short time are very noticeable, but don't weight yourself often. Use your cloths as a measure and in no time you will have everyone you know asking what you have done.
I'm not a fan of the `it's to good to be true' message, but if you're struggling with weight and you have tried to eat better to no avail like me give this plan a try. Stick with it, be honest with yourself and I'll bet you will have results that you can be proud of in just a month.

Thank you so much Adam

Jeff Volek is one of the foremost authorities on carbohydrate restriction in obesity and cardiovascular disease. I have had the privilege of collaborating with him and I naturally support his dietary approaches which are grounded in the biochemistry that is the basis of our collaborations.

On exercise, where both Jeff and co-author Adam Campbell are experts, I am an (amateur) end-user and can recommend that part of his book from that perspective. The book describes ideas such as total-body training (as opposed to supposed isolation of muscle groups) which I had to learn myself by trial and (mostly) error.

The book provides highly structured programs in both diet and training for those people who like the approach. I personally find it most valuable in the way chefs use cookbooks. They rarely cook from recipes but just absorb the ideas and then apply them as part of their own style. On the other hand, a couple of exercises are new to me and I Xerox the pages and take them to the gym. (If you can get beyond the name, the fire-hydrant is effective).

The real value of TNT is that it comes from Jeff's research and you're learning from somebody who is bringing out scientific information not just on body composition but cardiovascular health as well.

If I eat any sugar at all I don't lose fat. I've logged my body fat for years and only lo-carb/ketogenic diets work for me.

I ride my bike to work (20 miles round trip at 160bpm on the heart rate monitor) and do weights 3 - 5 times per week and not eating carbs makes me run down after a few weeks to a about a month.

Recently I started learning about cyclical ketogenic diets and tried that and my bodyfat went from 23% to 15% in 8 weeks after being plateaued for about 1.5 years.

I picked up tricks from here and there at the gym and on the web but wanted more numbers and quantifiable information not just theory and anecdotal advice.

So I bought the TNT diet and must say it is a thing of beauty and it works.

For the first time in my life I'm on track to having a six pack. The key is carb timing and amount.

I feel great and can control my body fat levels predictably and learned a ton that I didn't know about mixing ketogenic diets with a brutal workout schedule.

Atkins is geared for sedentary type people. The key to working out intensely on a ketogenic diet is knowing when and how much carbs to eat and still burn fat and keep muscle. Eating less doesn't work me. Timing carbs and controlled amounts of carbs does.

Depending on how insulin resistant you are (hopefully not at all) you don't need very much sugar to have explosive workouts and cardio but timing and amounts are key.

And this book goes above and beyond the call of duty with practical use of the ketogenic diet to burn the blubber down and keep your muscle.

Thanks Men's Health for actually helping this man have health.

Highly recommend.

The diet works-15 lbs in 4 weeks- You must work out on the diet but that is something I have been doing since I turned 40-The diet works by dumping your bodies glycogen. After the glycogen tank is empty your body looks to burn somthing for energy. Not having the easy source of fuel, the glycogen, it turns to your fat stores and starts burning it. The diet is not a portion control deal so you eat normal meals and never starve. Meats,Cheese,Green vegetables are all fine to eat, and to eat enough of. Starches, sugars, pastas, fruit, are all avoided for at least a month in order to drain the glycogen and kick start your body to start burning all that belly fat.
