TNT Diet is a great book. I am two weeks into the diet/workout plan and, though I have lost virtually no weight (two pounds), have lost over an inch off my waist and am noticeably more toned overall. All with no ill effects or carb cravings. And I love the workout routines. So few exercises work so many muscles.
The most shocking thing is how much energy I have on this diet, considering the only carbs I consume are from vegetables and almond butter. I played (and won) a grueling 2 1/2 hour match last week in 80 degree humid weather with no noticeable changes to my endurance/stamina. There is no way I could've done that on Phase 1 of South Beach.
