How does this differ from the RP diet eBook?

The Renaissance Diet eBook is geared exclusively towards sport performance and altering body composition. This eBook was written with just general health in mind and only references eating for performance one time in the entire eBook.

Who is this eBook for?

This eBook was written for everybody! Understanding how to eat for general health is important for all. For those that have read the RP diet eBook, there would still be some big takeaways for healthy eating. This eBook would be especially for those who have fallen victim to various diet fads, gimmicks, or quick fixes.
