This product was recommended by Ben Kenyon from Ultimate Performance Personal Training
Every year there are a slew of diet books covering the latest fads which people follow for a few weeks before giving up when they see little or no results. The one unifying problem all of these healthy eating guides have is they don’t teach the fundamentals about calories, macronutrients, how to create the ideal weight loss meal.
This is where the Ultimate Performance Cookbook is different. It comes from Nick Mitchell, the founder of Ultimate Performance, the world’s leading personal training business. Nick and UP have helped tens of thousands of clients achieve remarkable body transformation results, including Glen Powell (Top Gun 2) Kevin McHale (Glee) and Olivia Colman (The Favourite). The book brings together the nutritional know-how of Nick and his elite training team with the flavours and finesse of U.P.’s team of professional chefs with 190-plus delicious recipes that can help anyone achieve real results.
Every recipe in the book is under 500 calories with exact macronutrient calculations that can be tailored to your specific diet requirements. Nick sets out his Rules for Healthy Eating which have laid the foundation for tens of thousands of successful U.P. clients to eat and live as healthily and enjoyably as possible, for life. It lays out the tried-and-tested formula for creating the optimal ‘body transformation meal’ which for each and every recipe in the book. There are also detailed meal plan examples showing how you can create your own ideal macronutrient-calculated weekly meal plan using the recipes. This book is the antidote to archetypal ‘diet fare’ and the scores of recipes that claim to support healthy weight loss but are nothing but abstract without the right macronutrient and calorie profiles.

This is not a diet book but instead a book about changing your mindset about eating and your relationship with food. I’ve lost 160+ pounds naturally and kept it off for 8 years and counting. The key to effective and permanent weight loss is to answer this question: /if it’s not about food, then what is it?/ This book will help you answer that question for yourself so you can eat what you want, lose the weight, and keep it off. The book has been featured in PEOPLE magazine, PEOPLE TV, The Charlotte Observer, FOX46 Good Day Charlotte, and NPR’s Charlotte Talks. If you’ve ever been afraid of food, felt ashamed of your body’s size, been on a diet or lots of diets that didn’t work out for you in the end, felt trapped by eating guidelines, and/or given up on trying to lose weight, know this: You are not alone.
This is not just another weight-loss book, it’s also an invitation for you to delve deeper into who you are so you can keep the weight off permanently. You will: learn why you use food in a way it was never intended and how to change that, discover what works best for you and your body so you can honor your own preferences., master how to create a lifestyle that is true to what matters deeply to you so you can become the person you envision yourself to be.
