Format: Paperback
This book has some great photos in it and some really helpful and some insightful nutritional guidance. It's a great guide devoted to benefiting your health with many foods. I was hooked on it since I am a health fanatic always trying to stay in shape, hitting the gym, etc. But another book that really caught my eye was Muscle Building Cookbook: Quick & Easy Healthy Meals to Burn Fat and Gain Muscle: 1 I'd say this is the way to go, this book has it all 5 stars in my book!!!

The first 2/3 of the book contain a list of foods with a description and facts about how healthy it is, etc. This part contains large pictures of the items, with a small piece of text beneath it. I found it to be too much pictures and too little information, and because it is such a large part of the book I found this disappointing. The last part is recipes, and to my surprise there isn't even 1 picture for each recipe! I had expected something more 'practical' in this book, not just a big bunch of facts.

As you would expect great advise and facts included in this book, would recommend to anyone that is interest in nutrition. Has a Q&A section which is really helpful and recipes at the back.

I've ultimately given the book 4 stars because, as Remmy says, a considerable portion of the book is taken up with pictures and descriptions of the benefits of various foods; and that section may seem a little thin. At the same time, it's a useful reference section about many different foods and there are also many other good tips - so this is a minor criticism.

However, this is the authoritative book on nutrition that I have been searching out for some time now. Weber shows what your eating routine ought to be in order to stay lean and all of this is backed by distinguished sources and distinguised nutritionists, etc. There are no Gillian McKeiths here. It seems that much information out there concerning food and diet is extremely contradictory, and the average person struggles to judge what the true state of play is. To underscore this point, I Weber says that, once and for all, eggs are not bad for you. Then, a couple of days later, I read some nutritionist saying that eating so many eggs will increase your risk of Type 2 Diabetes. Nevertheless, I place a lot more store in this book's information and advice than many other sources of nutritional advice.

If you're looking to lose weight then this book would be 5 stars, really good descriptions of different foods and weight loss recipes. I was hoping for a bit more sceince about specific meals for pre/post workouts, when to eat before matches etc but still a really useful book.

Nice little book.
It basically explains alot of facts you probably know but not known why you obey these facts.
simple things like eating fat is not bad is soo true but so many people do not beleive.

personally I would but this book for chapters 1,2,3,5 & 8.
they for me are what made this book and those 70 pages for someone that has a good idea about nutrision get a lot of info that they never knew or knew of but didnt know the why which make you feel good about putting down certain foods and keeping with what you eat.

recipes look lush as well. if you were trying to eat a good balanced meals its all there for you. I could probably easily make 3 months worth of week meal plans with each meal being different.

Yes, this book contains some interesting information. Yes it's got a large section of foods that you should be eating, but I find the page per food with no cross reference tables means you have to read every page and take your own notes before deciding what food you should you for particular dietary components. It has the feel of a chef guide as opposed to a nutrition guide.
The "science" parts of book were pretty weak too, consisting mostly of "Recent research has show that....[place headline here]" with very little research done into what research was actually done or what it actually means in the real world.
