Description:

The scientific way to lose fat ""Crack the Fat-Loss Code" brings you the most sensible solution to permanent weight management I have seen." --Frederick C. Hatfield, Ph.D., bestselling author of "Bodybuilding: A Scientific Approach," "Hardcore Bodybuilding," and "Ultimate Sports Nutrition" The human body evolved to resist starvation by holding on to fat. No wonder it's hard to lose weight! Now a revolutionary lifestyle plan finally cracks the code for efficient fat loss. Developed by leading nutrition specialist Wendy Chant, the plan is scientifically designed to help you "outsmart" your body's natural cycles for storing and burning calories. The plan teaches you to boost your metabolism through "macro-patterning"--a simple routine of alternating carb-up, carb-down, and baseline days. There are even built-in cheat days, so you can enjoy the foods you love. Once you get your eating habits on schedule, you'll find that you can lose weight . . . for good. In just eight short weeks, you'll be able to: REPROGRAM YOUR BODY--to burn the fat and keep it off. FEEL HEALTHY, NOT HUNGRY--with limitless food options. CONQUER THAT DIET PLATEAU--once and for all.
