It seems that nowdays anyone who has worked out even for a little bit, suddenly he becomes an expert and writes a book about diet and fitness.
One such case is the protein deprivation method. I have read a book in the past but can't recall the writer's name, that claims to have found a secret to steroid sized muscles.
The secret is the protein deprivation method and it has you drastically reduce the amount of protein you consume (to about 30g per day) for three weeks and then after that return to a high protein diet.
The book however does not mention any studies to back this up, so I want to ask if there are research papers proving or disproving the efficiency of the method for muscle growth.
