Descrizione prodotto


The TRUTH about using cheat days, refeeds, and spike days.

The Cycle Diet has been used for 30 years by Scott Abel with his clients to stay lean year-round while improving their physiques and their metabolism. The Cycle Diet is a strategy that uses regular cheat days, refeeds and spikes where "anything goes," balanced against regular diet days of a relative caloric deficit. It is sustainable, customizable, insanely effective and FUN.

In the "full" Cycle Diet, you eat strictly for most of the week, but have a one-day "cheat day" (usually on Saturday or Sunday) plus a "mid-week spike." (The mid-week spike is usually only introduced for when clients get really, really lean. Most people do well with just the once-per-week cheat day.)

Learn how to stay near peak condition all year long, while still optimizing metabolism and your physique!

With the Cycle Diet, you do not just begin by adding cheat days to your diet like so many other "cheat day diets" out there these days. Instead, with the Cycle Diet, you’ll learn how to coax your body into "Supercompensation Mode." Once your body is properly in Supercomp (how long this takes can be different for different people), you’ll be able to start weekly spikes where you eat whatever you want, and as much as you want. The book as info on how to get into Supercomp, how to tell for sure you're in it, and how to start implementing the spikes.

And yes, on the spikes... anything goes.

Yes, this actually means you eat what you are craving, whether it is ice cream, peanut butter, pizza, lasagna, cookies, donuts, or whatever. Whether high carb or high fat, if you are craving it, you eat it.

The book includes:

• Formulas and guidelines for determining how many calories to eat.
• A variety of pre-made meal plans to use as "guidelines" for what to eat on diet days.
• Information about the history and real-world genesis of the Cycle Diet back in Scott's bodybuilding days
Feedback and Q&As with actual successful Cycle Dieters so you can see how they've made the diet "their own."
• The science behind the diet, balanced against its real-world development in the trenches.
• How to begin implementing calorie spikes, including the mid-week spike.
• How the Cycle Diet has changed over the years.
• What to expect as you're getting into Supercomp Mode.
• A practical, fun way to optimize your metabolism and improve your own metabolic resiliency.
• Honest advice and suggestions about the benefits and the downsides of this lifestyle (it's not for everyone)

Learn about the diet that Scott's clients LOVE.

4.0 su 5 stelle No panaceas or magic here, just a very solid strategy simply described 5 ottobre 2015
Di Todd I. Stark - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I think this is probably one the more useful general guides to weight control out there. This is not a fad diet or a timing diet or the usual carbs vs. fats with a lot of selectively chosen citations to confirm the author's prior opinions. This is just a lot of the author's own experience and wisdom as a coach translated into simple terms. The concept here can be easily summarized: put yourself into a consistent mild calorie deficit, learn to tolerate very mild hunger, and use the feedback from you body to recognize when hunger is becoming excessive, then using planned refeeds to avoid going too far into deficit. Unless you have very unique or specialized needs, you don't need to get caught up in precise macros, timing, or calculations. You just need to come up with very rough guesses and then adjust based on your the feedback you get from your body.

This makes much more sense to me than any of the popular strategies that tell you to avoid entire categories of foods, and it is much more in line with my own experience. The book has rough guidelines for initial guesses at how much you should be eating (kcal roughly 10-12 times your bodyweight in lbs), and some reasonable other guidelines here and there, but for the most part is extremely flexibile and predicated on the idea that you will be learning to read the signal from your body to stay in just enough of an energy deficit to keep your weight under control while getting enough protein and getting enough of either fats or carbs or both to spare the metabolism of that protein. You want to emphasize plant and animal sources rather than high reward processed foods, particularly because those distort your ability to judge your own satisfaction with food and your own hunger. I found that a welcome shot of sensible reasoning in a book market full of sensationalized accounts of magic foods and toxic foods. Once your body tells you that your relatively small routine deficit is accumulating beyond the mild and becoming an obsession with food and a distracting hunger, you use refeeds in a way that both serves your body and satisfies your hunger without becoming a "cheat" that potentially throws you into a negative spiral.

This strategy is simple and very general, but not easy, because it relies on very few rules but requires you to learn to manage your own appetite and learn to read your own internal signals better. If it were easy to manage our weight, there wouldn't be so much written about it and entire industries devoted to selling products and services for helping us. But this author at least leads us toward a useful approach based on learning over time and working with our biology in a very long term sustainable way rather than relying on panaceas for avoiding certain food groups or "toxic" foods or fighting ourselves with extreme short term strategies that are counter-productive in the long run.

4.0 su 5 stelle Flawed but offers an interesting perspective 15 ottobre 2015

First: the cons. This book needed a basic read-through, so loaded is it with typos, sentences that aren't coherent, and so on. This is not just a question of spelling errors, though there are plenty of those. The whole book reads like the transcript of a talk, and the typist hasn't caught everything and has made some mistakes, as well. Distracting and pointless. Surely someone could have proofread the proofs? The lack of attention to the text makes it seem rushed and slapdash and undermines its authority. No one is asking this author to be a great literary stylist, but his sentences should at least be grammatical and they ought to make sense.

Another thing that struck me was that in his example meals, he suggests up to a full carton's worth of egg whites, and never any full eggs! Seems a very strange prejudice for someone so well up on nutrition. Not only are whites untasty (unless in meringue!) but they lack the inexpensive, extremely high-quality protein of the full egg, i.e. the yolk. Eggs are hardly high in calories, either. Anyone wishing to cut calories at breakfast or any other time should just have fewer eggs. But they are doing themselves no favours by tossing out the yolks.

Pros: This guy does know what he's talking about. Page after page delivers lived-through, tested, helpful and unusually straightforward talk about how to lose fat and keep fit. The book has a refreshingly friend-to-friend sense of confiding the truth about this reality -- and it's not fundamentally contradicted by anything I've known, lived, or read. On the other hand, why present the overfeed (or 'refeed', which I prefer as a term) as involving a dozen doughnuts at breakfast? Is that what eating as you like really consists of? You can't trust Abel to raise the tone or offer a gourmet's view: he won't.

An interesting and useful perspective, even if you have other plans for yourself. But he really ought to come out with a new edition: and READ it first, this time.

I had recently lost a great deal of weight using a system that I came up with on my own over years of trying things that did not work and trying to find a long term option that I could do. I wanted to lose weight and keep it off not just reach a goal weight and gain it right back. I came across Scott Abel and this book, read it, and what a wonderful, confirming, enlightening point in my life. I was able to slowly modify what I had been doing to incorporate Scott's plan from this book and make it work for me. I am at a weight I have never sustained as an adult and have kept my weight off for longer than I ever have in my life. Scott's approach has been a big reason for this success. He helped me realize that my journey is a life journey and not a sprint to a weight goal. I need a daily commitment and dedication to myself to remain successful and his plan has helped me do that.

I should have read the other one star review before buying. Like that review, I was well into the book before that nasty curve ball. I even read the preview. Nope! Nothing in there about how lean you need to be for the diet to work. I'm sure the author has a book just for someone at my level. Yeah, no thanks; once bitten, twice shy.

Scott Abel's Cycle Diet is so informative. Scott's knowledge is priceless. The fact that he lays the process out is great. The book is a great resource.
