Achieve the lean, fit look of a professional athlete in just twelve weeks with this straightforward fitness plan. New studies are confirming what Paul Goldberg has already observed in his high-profile clients: getting leaner not just thinner is the single most important change that we can make to feel and look our best. What many Americans struggle with today is known as normal weight obesity: normal body weight, but high body-fat percentage, which can lead to serious health problems. Now Goldberg has developed an effective plan to lower body fat by eating the right foods and building muscle. The twelve-week Lean Look program requires no fancy equipment, takes thirty minutes a day, six days a week, and can easily be done at home. Goldberg shows how to add foods to your diet that promote muscle development, cut back on foods that encourage fat storage, time your meals for optimal nutrition, and exercise to burn fat. With over 100 photographs, a Lean Look journal, body-fat tables, and a four-week meal plan, The Lean Look is a straightforward guide to getting the sculpted, athletic body you've always wanted.
