Metabolic Surge: How To Build Muscle and Lose Fat Fast by Nick Nilsson is a wonderful book which simplifies the mechanics of weight loss and muscle building. The objective is to maximize fat loss through a meticulous program of carbohydrates control and fat burning exercises.
In Phase One, low carbohydrates are consumed and the training regimen is geared for maximum fat loss while minimizing muscle damage. Excess water and carbohydrates are drained from the body while calories and fat burn effortlessly. This phase occurs in three days.
Phase Two lasts for two days. Protein is consumed followed by carbohydrates. Fat loss accelerates. This process shocks the body by using body fat for energy. Fruit may be consumed with plenty of water.
Phase Three involves eating low fat foods. More fat is lost. The objective is to train in order to build muscle. These phases are repeated at least three times in a five week period. A good multivitamin is taken each day together with protein powder. The vitamin should be in capsule or gel form. A strength of the presentation is that the author provides a daily recitation of what to eat and the time of day or night to consume food.
Extensive tables depict the age, height, weight, required calories, and safe ranges to decrease calorie consumption for weight loss purposes. Protein powder may be taken the first thing in the morning. Before bedtime, whey powder and low fat milk may be consumed. A mixed protein shake may be kept on hand for middle of the night snacks. The objective of the program is to cultivate a metabolic surge followed by low carbohydrates, high nutrients and low fat foods.
Metabolic Surge is designed to facilitate fat loss and muscle building simultaneously. The presentation succeeds in explaining the process simply and understandably for novice body builders. The whole process is documented at every stage of the program. In implementation, a physician or medical provider should be consulted to provide appropriate monitoring, where necessary. The monitoring may include a blood workup, allergy panel, internal inflammations and vital organ functioning.
