When looking to make an outstanding physical transformation, especially in such a short period as 8 weeks, the diet will certainly play a vital role. While training sets the anabolic process into motion, it is the food we eat that provide the raw materials necessary for building muscle tissue.
In other words, you may own the land and the tools, but no house can be built without concrete, wood and bricks! As well, no matter how much cardio you decide to do, unless the proper nutritional program is in place, you will continually take two steps forward and back when it comes to melting off body fat.
Below I provide you the basic tools you will need to set up a daily menu that is geared towards both muscle growth and fat loss. The very best diet plans do not simply take just calories into consideration, but also percentages of macronutrients (protein, carbs, fats) and their proper “timing” throughout the day.
I suggest you begin this process by taking your bodyweight first thing in the morning and also having a qualified trainer or physician measure your body fat. This gives you a tangible reference as a starting point. Then look in the mirror and study what you see.
Take stock of your physique and envision the changes you would like to make, not only in 8 weeks, but in the months beyond. Understand that this is a process, and while amazing things can be accomplished in short periods, you must remain realistic. Not only do we want to see you transform your bodies, but we also want you to feel as good as you look. Health must always remain paramount.
Remember, we are not necessarily looking for the best body, but rather the greatest 8-week transformation! You do not have to look like Mr. or Ms. Universe to be #1 in the ALLMAX Universe — not in THIS contest!
