Background




Alpha Male Challenge: The 10-Week Plan to Burn Fat, Gain Muscle & Build True Alpha Attitude is a guide that will help men to become more successful in every aspect of their lives by reclaiming their masculine edge.

James Villepigue, a certified personal trainer and best-selling author of the Body Sculpting Bible series, and Rick Collins, a certified personal trainer and former competitive bodybuilder, are the creators of this program. It is based on what the authors have learned through their many years of experience, in combination with insights from some of the top experts in exercise physiology, sports nutrition and psychology.

The authors say that a true Alpha Male is not a tough guy or bully but a gentleman with confidence and modern enlightenment. They state, “When you really think about it, shouldn’t every man’s goal be not only to look more heroic, but also to be more heroic?”

The Alpha Male Challenge will not only help men to reshape their physical bodies and improve their health but will also support positive changes in attitude that will lead to greater success in other areas of life including careers and relationships.

Alpha Male Diet Basics

the-alpha-male-challengeThe program involves three components: diet, exercise and attitude.

The dietary aspect of the program, which is described as the Alpha Fuel Solution, is basically a Paleo style diet that has been adjusted in accordance with cutting edge research. In general terms it is a high protein, high fiber, moderate carbohydrate diet that can be adapted to support both maximum fat loss and muscle gain.

Once a week men are permitted a feast meal, where they are rewarded for their Alpha male discipline, and can eat ‘like a mere mortal man’.

The Alpha Male includes the MaleScale assessment questionnaire that is used to evaluate the physical and mental attributes that define a true Alpha Male. Men are then instructed in how to develop the Four C’s of Alpha Attitude: commitment, confidence, courage, and conscience.

    Poof, you think us guys could have just a small chunk of this diet craze it’s like every other diet is targeted to women, I’m sure you could find an AGGRESSIVE diet to suit your taste. “wink wink”

  • MAN

    Ummmm… pretty sure that one eyed monster keeps the human species alive, but… This is called the Alpha Male Challenge because it is aimed at men, just like the Bikini Bootcamp Diet is aimed at women. Not saying we don’t have the same cravings, but different genders obviously want a certain end result. Males want confidence and mass(Alpha Male), women want tight and curvy(Bikini Bootcamp).

  • poof is back

    @ Russ: You totally missed the point. In other reviews on this site, in the “cons” section, the author complains about the fact that certain diets don’t appeal to men because they are targeted at women. THAT IS WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT.

    Btw… trust me, I’m not envious of that one-eyed monster between your legs. I’m very happy with my pretty vagina. Don’t you wish you could wear pants comfortably without that clunky hunk of flesh getting in the way? ;)

  • manilla

    BS go women

  • Russ

    If you want big shoulders, arms, and legs then go ahead and do this diet. It’s not sexist at all, usually girls don’t like being big and muscular which is why it’d called the alpha male diet. There are tons of diets aimed at only women and no guys complain that it’s sexist because those diets are for getting skinny and trim, guys usually don’t want that.

    Stop complaining and wishing you had something between your legs, please!

  • Russ

    btw this diet looks good

  • poof

    “Recipes designed to suit male appetites.”

    Yeah, cause what’s between a person’s legs really dictates food cravings… NOT.

    PS You forgot to add another con; the fact that it’s targeted at men only. In the Brazilian Bikini review, one of the cons was the fact that it only targeted women, as if men wear bikinis. LOL

    End the sexism, please.
