    The book just reiterates common sense.

    Burn more cals than you take in
    Keep carbs low
    Consume mostly low glycemic, whole grain carbs
    Keep healthy fats and protein high
    Keep junk food to an absolute minimum
    Keep alcohol in check
    Do basic cardio and ab workouts.

    There, I just summed up the entire book (and then some) in ~ 50 words.

    Can you still achieve muscle build if you do this? I kinda have a bit of a beer gut that I'm trying to get rid of, but would also like to put on muscle mass while losing the gut, is this possible? I've reduced calories to around 1700 and try to get 150+ grams of protein, what would people here suggest?

    imo as long as you get enough protein intake and do proper lifting + cardio you should be fine, search for articles on t-nation, they have lots of good writers on these topics.
