If you want to build a body you can be proud of without starving or depriving yourself of all the foods you actually like...then you want to read this book.

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine…eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

When you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

Here’s a “sneak peek” of what you’ll find inside:

• 13 delicious and easy-to-make breakfast recipes, like “BLT” Eggs Benedict, Heuvos Rancheros, High-Protein Banana Oatcakes, Spice Caribbean Oatmeal with Yogurt Swirl, and more.

• 11 mouthwatering salads and dressings, like Spicy Santa Fe Taco Salad, Grilled Mediterranean Salad with Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette, Creamy Jalapeno-Cilantro Dressing, and more.

• 14 “diet-friendly” snacks that you’ll actually want to eat, like Blueberry-Coconut Pancake Batter Smoothie, Maple-Walnut Protein Muffins, Peanut Butter Protein Swirl Brownies, and more.

• 16 succulent beef and pork recipes that make great lunches and dinners, like Beef Stroganoff, Beef Lo Mein, Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops, and more.

• 18 poultry recipes that you’ll love again and again, like Curry Chicken, Mexican Meatloaf, Pollo Fajitas, and more.

• 8 savory seafood recipes like Creamy Fettuccine with Scallops, Graham Cracker-Crusted Tilapia, Seared Cod with No-Cook Mustard-Caper Sauce, and more.

• 11 awesome side dishes like Crispy Squash Fries, Sweet Potato Chips, Roasted Garlic Twice-Baked Potato, and more.

• 10 delectable desserts that can actually fit your macros, like Peach Cobbler, Maple-Raisin Bread Pudding, Triple Berry Crisp, and more.

Simply put, The Shredded Chef isn’t just another “healthy cookbook.”

It’s 270 pages of practical dietary wisdom backed by over 115 scientific studies (all referenced, of course!) and decades of anecdotal evidence.

It’s also going to give you simple and helpful cooking insights that will immediately upgrade your culinary skills.

So...imagine, just 12 weeks from now, wooing your friends, family, and significant other with restaurant-quality meals that cost a fraction of the price…

...and being constantly complimented on how you look and asked what the heck you’re doing.

Well, scroll up, buy this book now, and start your journey to your best body ever today.


With this book you'll also get two free eBooks (one for men and one for women) that teach you the fundamentals of strength training and muscle building and give you tried-and-true weightlifting programs that will change your body in just 8 weeks.

You’ll also get 10 meal plans (5 for men and 5 for women) that show you how to put flexible dieting principles into practice and make them work for you.

And last but not least, you’ll get a spreadsheet that contains the calorie and macronutrient counts for all the recipes in the book.


  • BLS in the kitchen

    I have never been one to jump into the kitchen but after reading this book it has given me a new knowledge and the confidence to jump in and create delicious and healthy meals.
  • Perfect!

    By Learningthroughtheprocess
    I really enjoyed this book. Lots of great info on the WHY, not just “listen to me because I’ve figured out body science”. The recipes are delicious so far, definitely going to make them ALL! I look forward to diving deeper into my body building knowledge and reading more from you!
  • Easy read, real simple and tea recipes.

    I enjoyed the education prior to just meals. Do the math, make your meals and stick to it. Give it 12 weeks and enjoy saying “I’m glad I did.” Vs “I wish I had.”
  • Bummed

    By starztb
    I just bought this iBook but it only allows me to read the breakfast recipes. I was under the impression that I would get all the recipes if I bought the book. I have shakes for breakfast and lunch so this does me no good. I will admit that the breakfast recipes do look delicious. I’m just bummed that I cant read the dinner and sides recipes which is what I bought it for.
  • Best money spent

  • A Cookbook Done Right.

    By Nipperr
    Without bragging, I can cook well. Granted, it’s buttered, sugared and floured. What isn’t good with all of that? Until now I struggled to actually make anything healthy that also didn’t taste bland. This book made cooking healthier dishes so simple. Also, he gave macro counts for every recipe. What isn’t to love? Even if you only like 25% of the 120 recipes, that’s still a heck of a good amount of dishes to add to your repitoire for such a cheap (in dollar amount not quality) book.
  • Delicious and nutritious

    By evil_adam
    I've always been a gym rat but eating healthy had always been hard for me. I enjoy food and just hated all the healthy bland foods. I've tried a lot of the recipes in this book and I haven't had one yet that I don't like. This book is more than just a cookbook. It's got tons of great information about how to eat to achieve your goals.
