You don't have to avoid entire food groups to lose weight, look sexy, get lean, gain confidence, and build muscle.
After lecturing around the world, physicians, patients, clients, family, and friends all wanted a cookbook that embodies Dr. Alo's simple weight loss philosophy. After every lecture a group of people would gather asking for recipes, or a diet plan, or a secret formula. There's no real secret formula. But this is the closest thing to it!
How much simpler would your life be if you calculated your caloric needs, flipped to that chapter, and made those amazing meals? Each chapter contains a breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert that are scrumptious and fit within your caloric limits! Sticking to your calorie limits will cause weight loss. There are adjustments that can be made along the way, and the first chapter explains the adjustments and how often to make them.
Because Dr. Alo is a bodybuilder, an ordinary cookbook would not suffice. You must include enough protein to cause muscle growth, or at the very least, muscle retention. Most people don't get enough protein in their diets, so when they cut calories, they are at risk of losing muscle mass.
Heart 2 Heart was written and designed for this exact purpose. So that you can eat whatever you want, stay within your limits, lose weight, and build muscle.
As a cardiologist and personal trainer Dr. Alo is uniquely qualified to address the issues of health, wellness, mortality, longevity, and optimizing your health via very simple formula.
Heart 2 Heart starts out with an introductory chapter that explains the science and philosophy behind Dr. Alo's weight loss strategies. Then you calculate your calories and learn how to adjust them over time. Then you jump to your calorie chapter and begin. Weight will start to come off!
The book is divided up into chapters based on the number of calories needed to achieve weight loss. For example, the first chapter is 2400 calories and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert recipes that add up to 2400 calories, with sufficient protein to prevent muscle loss. If you need to eat 2400 calories to lose weight, this is the chapter for you. There's a chapter for 2200, 2000, 1800, and so on. The first few chapters explain how to calculate the number of calories needed to cause weight loss and how to adjust them over time.
