It is a fat-loss plan with the revolutionary concept of metabolic disturbance at its core. Metabolic disturbance revs up fatburning hormones during your workout and creates a post-workout "afterburn" that torches calories for hours after you leave the gym.

Learn how to easily and naturally manipulate hormones that affect fat gain and fat loss with a diet that emphasizes real, whole foods plus dozens of meal ideas and recipes. With a 4-phase plan that maximizes weight loss, you won't have to log excessive time in the gym. You'll be
exercising smarter. Ultimate You is your health and fitness bible: a powerful plan for exercising and eating that will result in an amazing body and optimum health.
