INTRODUCTION Congrats on purchasing your Ultimate Guide To Body Recomposition! We are pumped about your decision to optimize your body composition and thrilled to assist you in complementing your hard work in the gym with the latest nutritional science. In the pages ahead, you will learn to separate the gym hearsay and daresay from the voice of current science. Then, once you have grasped the key nutritional tenets of building muscle and losing fat, we will guide you through an easy-to-implement application of this science. Our goal in writing this e-book is not to present a humdrum regurgitation of “bodybuilding nutrition 101” basics. We will not merely teach you about energy balance, how to track macros and tell you that you should eat one gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. While we will do a quick recap of the nutrition fundamentals at the beginning of each chapter to make sure everyone is keeping up with the plot, our goal is to teach you how to optimize your body composition.

There are surely simpler nutritional approaches that can get you good results for less work than the ones laid out here. We will indeed outline those basics. We believe however, that to get the best results you can, it is important to cross more t’s and dot more i’s than what following the simplest path will provide. As you will see, body recomposition (building muscle while losing fat) is not quite as straightforward as merely losing fat or merely building muscle. In our opinion, achieving both of these goals at the same time will require more attention to detail and a more optimized approach than your typical run-of-the-mill bulking or cutting diet. In this book, our goal is to get everything just right. This is what we mean when we say optimization. From the outset, it’s worth noting that what is most optimal for you may not necessarily be most optimal for your gym buddy, or even for us. That’s mostly
