The Renaissance Diet 2.0 is not a fad. Instead, this hands-on guide presents a sports nutrition approach to eating for fat loss, muscle gain, and enhanced sport performance by incorporating current, comprehensive evidence—setting it apart from all the misinformation on nutrition available today.
Within this book, you will read which parts of a diet determine results. Delving into calorie intake, food quality, meal spacing and timing, and supplement use, you will understand how to rank-order each part based on its relative contribution to diet, ensuring that you remain focused and avoid getting needlessly caught up in minute details. Next you will further explore why and how calories matter; how much protein is enough; whether snacking is a good idea or if intermittent fasting is better. Each of these questions and more will be answered, giving you the foundational knowledge to understand diet structure.
Finally, you will learn how to design your individual diet by using the given step-by-step guidelines on how to modify your diet as your body adapts. Additional information about hunger management, diet psychology, and long-term diet planning is provided—all to achieve the best results.
