In brief: The science is real

If you exercise very hard and don't eat very much, you will get great muscle definition if you keep it up.
There's no magic.

In brief: Not sure

Of the particular details but have heard it is a high protein diet with a good amount of calories to help support muscle growth during the exercise program.
