The Lean Advantage, $15.95 + $4.60 shipping media class or $6.70 priority USA only (195 pages)

The "Ripped Department" was the longest-running column in the world's leading bodybuilding magazine. It enthralled the readers of Muscle & Fitness (over seven million worldwide) continuously for 15 years (until mid-1996). The column - it's usually in question and answer form - deals with losing fat, gaining muscle and getting fit in a healthy way.

No ordinary column, the "Ripped Department," written by attorney and bodybuilder Clarence Bass (called by Dr. Richard Winett in Ironman magazine "one of the fittest men in the country") has always been interesting and thought provoking. The approach is honest, straight-forward and often personal. The column is always well researched and readers say it oozes common sense.

So if you're stuck, tired of wasting your time and don't know where to go for advice look to The Lean Advantage books. Learn what Clarence Bass has learned over 40 years of athletic training in multiple sports. These information-packed, inspirational columns are grouped by subject matter and collected in three books. Taken together the books, 155 columns in all, are a virtual encyclopedia of bodybuilding, fitness, health and longevity, and fat loss.

Readers agree: these books contain a nugget of valuable advice on every page. (See description of books' contents below.)

Readers Say

"I picked up the Lean Advantage at a used bookstore and I must tell you I'm getting immediate results; I mean within hours of altering my diet!  I sound sensationalistic because I really can't believe how fast my body is changing.  I was under the impression that carbs were "out" these days and protein and high-supplementation was "in".  I immediately changed my eating habits lock-stock and barrel and voila!  Fat loss!!!!  As we say in Texas, "Damn straight!"
