The Ultimate Diet 2.0 represents both a very old and very new approach to the problems of dieting to low bodyfat percentages. It is old in that it builds upon an approach originally developed in the early 80's by bodybuilding guru Dan Duchaine and researcher Michael Zumpano.

Without doubt the best and most comprehensive dieting / training book I've ever read for those seeking to maintain performance whilst getting down to very lean levels. The plan isn't revolutionary for those already familiar with carb cycling diets, but where it really scores highly is with its effectiveness and overlap into real life. For those of a scientific persuasion it goes into very satisfying depth about why carb cycling diets are so effective.

Even if you don't end up following this plan

Lyle McDonald is probably the wisest (and by "wise" I mean "he knows a shitton of science about nutrition and training) in the fitness community, so his words are basically the truth. This diet is for sub 12% bodyfat, avarage genetics trainees. It's not for everyone (including myself).

Great book, I enjoy Lyle's work, but it's not for everybody. I'd say it's for somebody who deadlifts 500+ lbs, or for someone who competes in bodybuilding profesionally. It be a shame that most recriational lifters would dwell in to the complexity and details of the cycles of training and diet as Lyle proposes instead of focusing on the basics.

As always Lyle gives great physiology education and breaks down the "why" of methods. One of the smartest men in nutrition. But this is a rather extreme protocol and in my opinion, rather unnecessarily extreme. Will probably "work", but doubt many of these protocols will give superior results to something more realistic with most peoples lifestyles.

Not a diet for the fainthearted or if you're fat. This is the diet for you if you've gotten as lean as possible naturally and want to get even leaner naturally--without losing lean mass.
