I ordered the book off Amazon for 28 with free shipping and am waiting for the book.

My question is do i have to eat at maintenance for a certain amount of time if I have already been eating in deficit for a while?

The recommended time is 2 weeks of maintenance prior to starting the diet. I don't believe I've ever followed that to the letter, but it could probably be useful.

Good luck on the diet, it's tremendously effective but also quite demanding. I made what I consider to be outstanding progress on it at one point, clipping 12% at the start and ending in the mid 7's without killing myself.

Would you recommend it for a teenager? I need almost a reference to learn how to get a good diet.

Absolutely not.

The amount of dedication, anal-ness, and array of supplements, caffeine, and appetite suppressants required is nothing that someone in high school should ever attempt to put themsleves through.

Not to mention you are only 128lbs.

Ok thanks for the heads up. I am just trying to lean down just a bit more.

Oh yeah, UD2 is not a good teenager diet. Hell, you're what 128lbs @ 11-15%?
Are you male or female? If you're female, those numbers of completely off. If you're male, I'd be making all efforts to start putting on weight until over the next few years and get some solid base muscle before worrying about a cut.

Male. I have a pretty solid base believe it or not. Most of my body fat, thanks to genetics, is hanging around my abs. Once I can see them a little bit better I will consider gaining some more weight. I am thinking just doing some cardio will solve the problem but I am not sure on how cardio to do cardio correctly (pre/post food, timing, intensity, etc).

I hate to disagree man, but a solid base is not 108-113lbs of lbm. You'll likely grow a little more, which will aid in putting more weight in the right places and less in the wrong, but I'd totally focus on eating clean and a lot.

I have a very small body frame, some I actually look kind of buff. :zipit:

What kind of things would be considered not clean?

There's a thread around here called "what a bodybuilder eats." Read that first, then consider your options.

There's probably about 3 other threads on this, but was the e-Book yanked?

Yes. They now use a print on demand service, which basically prints and binds the ebook and mails it to you. Cuts down on piracy.
