Klappentext A no-frills, fail-safe, easy-to-follow "calorie-cycling" eating plan designed to jumpstart your metabolism, stimulate weight loss, define your body, and keep you fit for life-from the bestselling author of You Are Your Own Gym FUEL UP, BURN FAT International fitness phenomenon and U.S. Special Operations Forces trainer Mark Lauren has worked with everyone from soldiers to civilians who want to get into top shape fast-without pricey equipment or gym memberships.

For eleven years, I was responsible for preparing hundreds of trainees for the extreme demands of serving in the U.S. Special Operations community. These trainees had to get lean and strong in record time, since the likelihood of survival and mission success would largely depend on their physical fitness.   My mode of physical training involved exercises based solely on using the resistance of a person’s body weight—all done without the need for a posh state-of-the-art fitness facility. Using the “gym” of their bodies, soldiers were able to train themselves to be quick, agile, and powerful. This training method was tougher and more grueling than any workout using equipment, trust me. Once in combat, these soldiers could run fast, jump, push, roll, stop and start, change direction, get up or down, move under fire, and do other crucial warfare skills—in split seconds. If they were deficient in any of these fitness parameters, their chances of compromising the mission or becoming a liability to the team rose dramatically.   To fuel that type of live-or-die performance, my trainees had to eat for energy, strength, and physique perfection. Nutrition could not be overlooked; I had to develop and teach a diet that would deliver those benefits. The food had to be wholesome, natural, and pure. Look at it this way: if you saw someone build a hurricane shelter out of wood that was rotted or bricks that were broken, you’d know that the building would not have structural integrity and you wouldn’t (shouldn’t!) trust it to withstand hurricane-force winds.   The same is true of the nutritional building blocks you require to nourish and fuel your body. These building blocks include lean protein, natural carbohydrates, healthful fats, vitamins, minerals, and water—basically everything you eat and drink in order to construct a strong, vibrant, physically fit body.   So, to my way of thinking, the one “perfect” diet was similar to what cave-dwelling humans ate, except with the flexibility to use more rec...
