With this exhaustive guide, Lauren (You Are Your Own Gym), a former U.S. Special Forces trainer, thoroughly educates readers about fueling their bodies. Lauren's diet is aimed at getting the body to burn stored fat so that one is left with a sculpted shape. Part one covers the essentials of carbs, protein, and fats, as well as the concepts of the glycemic load (ranking the amount of carbs in a serving) and calorie cycling (periodic changes in calorie consumption). Part two delves into what types of foods one should eat, with helpful information about grass-fed versus grain-fed meat and tips for juice-based dieting. Part three gives sample meal plans in easily customizable blocks, and includes recipes and shopping lists. The last section contains exercises to pair with the body fuel diet, accompanied by clear, easy-to-follow pictures and instructions. In addition, Lauren includes a meal planning appendix and helpful advice on how to eat healthily at fast food joints, benefit from nutritional supplements, and take advantage of leftovers. This book will appeal to anyone looking to eat well and get fit without making many drastic compromises to their diet.
