Metabolic Surge – A Complete Day-By-Day Rundown! (Nick Nilsson’s Natural Bodybuilding Program Review)

Since I have gotten over 100 email requests for a review of
Nick Nilsson’s “Metabolic Surge – Rapid Fat Loss” program,
and I have not had the time to put a proper review together
for you as I have been super busy on my end, I talked Nick
into helping me out by writing a summary of what his program
consists of. Nick, being the cool guy that he is, sat down
and put this together for me in less than 24 hours (thank you

With that said, here it’s an inside look at Nick Nilsson’s
“Metabolic Surge – Rapid Fat Loss” program. Nick is pulling
back the curtain to show you exactly what his program is
all about and how it works so you can see if this something
that might work for you.

Honestly, if you are looking for a new muscle building and
fat loss plan to follow that is SUPER EFFECTIVE and low in
cost, you will NOT go wrong with this one! The results people
have gotten with this program have been nothing short of
astonishing (look at pics below).

a new program, you’ll learn a LOT about fat loss training
and eating so definitely check this out!

Metabolic Surge – A Complete Day by Day Rundown
By Nick Nilsson

The program consists of 3 primary phases that lasts a total of 12
days. You then repeat this cycle 3 times for a grand total of 36
days. Then you have a 10 day recovery period where you’ll take
things easier and regain strength and give your body a bit of a

Let’s get started:

The Nuts and Bolts of Phase 1:

Phase 1 is based on low-carb eating. Your body will be switching
over to serious fat burning in the first day-and-a-half to two
days. The training is Fat Loss Circuit Training (which I mentioned
preiviously) and it will hasten the departure of carbs and water
due to its demanding nature. It burns a lot of calories and will
help get rid of carbs from your system FAST.

Being in a low-carb state is much more efficient for fat loss,
though you don’t want to stay in it too long (about 5 to 7 days is
the most I recommend).

The third day is a complete rest day to help you recover from the
first two days. You’ll need the rest for the next two days (trust

On the fourth day, it’s Lactic Acid Training. This type of training
is designed to dramatically ramp up lactic acid production in your
muscles and keep it there while training that specific bodypart.
Why is this good? Well, the reduced pH in your body (more acidic)
is an emergency situation and your body secretes G H in response
(the full name of which I can’t write here or this email will get
filtered!). This hormone is not released as much when insulin is
present in the blood, therefore we do this training on the 4th and
5th day of the low-carb eating, to be sure you have NO insulin
floating around.

This maximizes the hormonal effect of the training. Lactic Acid
Training also is not very damaging to the muscles – you start with
one high-rep set (30+ reps), rest 20 seconds, then go again and try
and hit as many reps as you can. Keep going for the prescribed
number of sets.

This is followed by High-Intensity Intervals. The intervals are
done on this day so as not to coincide with the thigh training of
the next day. Lactic Acid Training for the thighs and interval
training don’t work as well when done on the same day because most
cardio training uses the legs to a large degree. The legs will be
too fatigued to push really hard on interval training.

You will be following a very basic supplementation program of
multivitamins and protein powder during this phase. You can also
include glutamine after workouts. Take NO creatine during this
phase so that you save it for the transition to Phase 3 where
you’ll get the most bang for your buck with it.

The Nuts and Bolts of Phase 2:

Phase 2 uses 2 days of single-nutrient eating to shock your body.

The first day focuses entirely on protein. Since you’ve been eating
low carb and teaching your body to preferentially burn fat for
energy, by suddenly depriving it of a fat intake as well, it’s
forced to seek out the most convenient fat source: bodyfat.

The interval training done on this day will encourage your body to
use plenty of bodyfat for energy. It’s not going to be easy,
working on only protein like this but it’s VERY effective. We only
do this for one day.

The second day is designed to create a desperate need for protein
in your body by starving yourself of it for a day. When you go to
Phase 3 and eat plenty of protein, your body will aggressively
store protein in the form of muscle.

Since you will be staying away from protein, don’t take any
glutamine on this day. Glutamine is an amino acid, which is a
component of protein. You will be getting plenty of it as you go
into Phase 3.

We will not be doing any training on this day as we are looking to
only deplete the body of free-circulating protein, not to
excessively break down muscle tissue. Just that depletion will
create the desperate need in your body for protein, similar to what
your body experiences on a carb depletion from low-carb eating and

An all-fruit day is also very cleansing to the body, which is a
perfect switch from a high-protein, high-meat product diet. Eat as
much fruit as you want. Your body will just be busy absorbing the
carbohydrates from the fruit. Be sure to drink plenty of water as
well. This fruit day also tends to flush out much of the excess
water from your body.

The Nuts and Bolts of Phase 3:

The first few days of Phase 3 are all about building muscle (what
better way to reduce your % bodyfat by increasing your % muscle
mass!). When you come directly off a low-carb diet, your body is
desperate for carbs and very sensitive to them. Your body will
absorb them (as well as other nutrients) very rapidly.

This is also where the zero-protein day comes into play. You have
also created a desperate need for protein in your body with it.

By combining these two desperate needs and then feeding them, your
body is capable of tremendously fast progress. This is when you
will be performing “Muscle Rounds” – one of the most effective
muscle-building training techniques I’ve ever come across.

During these first few days, you will loading up on nutrients such
as protein, glutamine and creatine to maximize the effects of the
previous two phases.

You will also be keeping your fat intake extremely low to maximize
fat burning during this time.

The third day of the phase is a day off weights but has you doing
high intensity interval training for your cardio. Doing this type
of training on it’s own day means you can really put a lot of
effort into it.

The fourth day is geared towards higher-volume, higher-rep training
using Supersets. This type of training is excellent for forcing a
lot of nutrient-laden blood into the muscles. The Supersets will
also create plenty of lactic acid, which is excellent for boosting
Growth Hormone levels in the body. You will also be doing interval
training on this day again.

The final day of this Phase is a complete day off. Your body will
need a little rest before you go back into the low-carb diet and
training of Phase 1 again. You may be tempted to do a little more
work – resist this as your body will need the rest!

On this day, you get a planned “cheat” meal…by planning it into
your program, you get the mental benefits of breaking the
strictness and your metabolism gets a nice shot. This planned
cheating is a VERY powerful concept, as is the whole
nutrient-rotation found in the Surge program itself.

Then Repeat Two More Times…

This 12 day cycle makes for one round of the program. In the NEXT 2
rounds, you’re going to be increasing the number of sets you do,
gradually building up the training volume, which forces your body
to work harder to keep up. This is a natural metabolism-increaser
and it’s PLANNED right into the program.

Think of how the engine of a car reacts as you hit the gas to climb
a hill…as the hill gets steeper, you have to almost floor it just
to keep moving. But when you keep it floored and come up and over
the top and down the other side, you pick up speed FAST.

This is the core concept of the Surge training program – you ramp
things up then back off and let your metabolism ROAR.

Strength/Recovery Phase:

The Strength/Recovery Phase is not for fat loss but to allow the
body some time to recuperate from the extreme training volume
you’ve been placing on it. It is the overcompensation phase after
ramping up to overtraining on the first 3 Phases, i.e. the car
coming over the top of the hill and coming down.

The focus here is on building or re-building strength. You will
dramatically reduce your training volume and frequency for a short
period and target your training to strength training (lower reps
and longer rest periods).

This sudden reduction in volume and frequency, while your body is
still cranking and trying to recover from the high volume, will
result in another jump in results. If you lost any strength during
the first 36 days of training, you will get it all back here (and
probably more!)

The Sum of All Parts:

As you can see, the training and nutrition of each Phase builds
onto the next one, making the whole greater than the sum of all
parts. This synergistic effect of the various nutrient and training
regimes will allow you to effectively build muscle and strength
even while training to lose fat!

From Phase to Phase, training volume will increase in order to push
your body a little further and a little harder. Building up to this
higher volume slowly will allow you take advantage of the body’s
reaction to temporary overtraining, keeping your results moving
quickly. You will NEVER hit a plateau with this program.

Your body has no choice but to adapt – it’s built into the training
program and it’s built into the eating program with the rotation
between low-carb, low-fat and single-nutrient eating.
