If you'd like to gain an advanced level of understanding of how to build muscle and lose fat easily, effectively, and rapidly...and if you'd like to rid yourself of all kinds of bad advice and habits that are making getting into great shape much harder than it should be...then you need to read this book.
Let me ask you a question. Do any of the following claims sound familiar?
"I have bad genetics--I just can't build muscle or lose fat easily."
"You have to work your abs more to get a six-pack."
"When doing cardio, you want your heart rate in the 'fat burning zone.'"
"Don't eat carbohydrates--they make you fat."
"Don't eat at night if you want to lose weight."
"If you wait too long in between meals, your body goes into 'starvation mode' and you will mess up your metabolism."
"I'm overweight because I have a slow metabolism."
You've probably heard one or more of these statements before, and the sad truth is lies like these have ruined many people's fitness ambitions.
Thanks to the overwhelming amount of fitness pseudo-science and lies being pushed on us every day by bogus magazines and self-styled "gurus," it's becoming harder and harder to get in shape.

This book does an excellent job filling in the gaps you may have in you fitness and nutrition knowledge. It is the perfect book to listen to after you finish "Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body." I highly recommend it. The content, writing style, and narration are all top notch.
I Thought Wrong
Myths 1-50... all of them are memorable, but the ones that stick out are as follows:
- Carbs are bad.
- Eating late is bad.
- Starving will put your body into "starvation mode"
- High reps equals lean muscles
These are very small titles and Mike Matthews goes very in depth with every myth and provides legitimate research to help convince you the truth behind the science of being a stronger and healthier individual.
This is not really applicable, but I would say that the chapter on how to lift properly was my favorite portion of the book.
How much do you not know?
I loved listening to this book! This audio book made my commute to and from work a breeze. This is very easy to follow and I want everyone to know how great this book is. I spent years making mistakes in and out of the gym and I wish I would have heard of this book sooner. This is a definite buy and I have recommended this to many friends and family members. A huge plus is that the author, Mike Matthews, has answered all my questions so far with a quick response. He legitimately strives to help others achieve their goals.
A must read if you want to know the truth about fitness, the myths that are holding you back and what it really takes to get super fit in the most efficient and effective way.
motivational, informative, interesting
I am almost done with this book, and I am really loving it. It helps to clarify so many myths in the fitness industry, and gives great tips for someone who is serious (or even curious) about improving ones capabilities to get lean and build muscle. Great book, and I look forward to reading more work by this author.
