Loss Leader

The MF September 2004 meal plan will help you perform the impossible--bulking up while losing unwanted, muscle-obscuring fat. The 2,500-calorie-a-day, high-protein diet is designed to provide the majority of your carbs and calories between i and 5, when you're most likely to burn them for energy instead of storing them as flab. To keep your meals interesting, we've also added great recipes to the mix. Try the three web-exclusive recipes below or get the September 2004 issue of Men's Fitness, on newsstands now, for the complete plan.

» Banana Bread Oatmeal
» Caribbean Jerk Pork Chops
» Spicy Chicken Burritos
