Publisher's Summary

Forget "losing weight" - you want to lose fat...and if you want to know how to do it as quickly as possible without losing muscle...and without doing hours and hours of grueling cardio every week...then you want to listen to this audiobook.

What if I told you that you could dramatically transform your body eating foods you actually like...every day...seven days per week?

What if all you had to do to lose fat and not muscle was follow a handful of flexible dietary guidelines...not starve and deprive yourself?

And what if I promised you could forever break free of the anxieties most people associate with "dieting" and make it something you can enjoy as a lifestyle instead?

Well, by the end of this book, you'll know exactly what you need to do to get a lot more out of a lot less exercise...and a lot more delicious food...than you ever thought possible.

Here's a "sneak peek" of some of the things this book will teach you....

  • The biggest diet lie you've been told (and probably believe) that makes losing fat way harder than it has to be.
  • Why "clean eating" is overrated and guarantees nothing in the way of losing fat and building muscle...and what you should do instead.
  • Five simple eating eating habits that keep you lean, healthy, and happy...without having to obsess over every calorie you eat.
  • How to use "fasted cardio" to lose fat...and stubborn fat in particular...even faster.
  • Seven powerful cardio workouts that will help you burn fat and not muscle in less than 30 minutes per day (and you don't even have to do them every day!).
  • And a whole lot more!

Buy this book now and begin your journey to a leaner, sexier, healthier you!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "great book"

    seriously, the best book on cardio, diet, loosing weight, and not muscle, I've ever read. it has clear, science-backed, advise and rules to accomplishing all of the above mentioned things. plus it has some great ideas for cardio that aren't your traditional cardio. and if that isn't enough for you there is some awesome bonus material.

    "A very good book, especially if you aren't familiar with the author's other books."

    I really enjoy Michael Matthews approach to health and fitness. I learned a lot from this book and Bigger, Leaner, Stronger.

    This book is short but very informational.

    "Awesome info!"

    This book is awesome! I love the detailed info of why and how to do the cardio to get the ultimate effects that I'm searching for. Easy to read without any BS. Also great is how quickly feedback comes back to you through Instagram or Facebook or email. Mike and his team are fantastic!

    "It works!"

    I'm a 30 year old woman & have already been doing some of Michael Matthews advice. I tried some things in this book new to me, so far it all works. I love the no nonsense, no drug, science backed, natural facts, food, & workout advice. It works. Michael Matthews is telling the truth. Im currently 24% body fat on my way below 20%.

    "He has done his homework"
    Any additional comments?

    The ONLY complaint I could possibly think of was that he hints that the body immediately burns fat after digestion has completed, roundabout. The body actually uses glycogen stores in the liver as fuel for a while which could be up to 24hours or so depending on the person. Only after those stores are depleted the body then looks to break down fat. Also the calories in must be less than calories 'out' is still highly debated. The body will treat 100 calories of olive oil a lot differently than it will treat 100 calories of sugar. But those are nit picks. I did like the book a lot. Gave everything a structure and found new ideas for workouts.

    "Good info but...."

    I already read thinner leaner stronger which has some of the same info. So probably best that you start with this book then Thinner Leaner Stronger.

    "Well worth listening to"

    I've read a few books from this author and I do enjoy his approach to teaching. I like the honest, open, and even technical approach to these books as I like to understand the "why" and the "how" of many statements that are made. As a result, I feel that this book helps me understand what changes I need to make in my workouts and diet. I also appreciate that he reinforces the statements that this is not easy, it's definitely not, but nothing great came out of something really easy either ;-) so take small progressive steps to get there.

    The narrator did a reasonable job of the audio book, a bit emotionless at times but it didn't really phase me too much as I was interested in the content. That being said, I didn't lose focus either and that tells me that narrator did a good enough job to keep me listening. Given the technical explanations at some parts, I had to rewind a few times to make sure I caught the intent of the message, again, this isn't knocking the book or the narrator.

    "Great book."

    This, like Michael's other book is a great addition to any fitness library. I wasn't sure if it was just going to be a repeat of B.L.S. And was relieved to find it full of good information not found in his other book.
