This book is seriosuly top notch book for anyone into sport or seriously into health and fitness. This describes every single thing to do with fitness and nutrition and the science behind it all and why what you eat is everything to do with your well being and sports performance. I have a friend who is an expert on nutrition and went into mr universe contests , university, seminars. he was pretty much a proffessor in sports nutrition and what he told me was the real thing and what really works in buildng muscle and what you should eat in your diet to make you extremely healthy and be better than that rest because there is too many lies and rubbish about what really works for you in sports nutrition especially on the web. everything he told me is in this book so this is a good source of information i can assure you that. It will explain to you why you need vitamins and essential fatty acids in your diet. When and what to eat for you to perform at your potential. How to gain results from doing weights and not lose muscle and how to keep it. How to calculate how much carbohydrates and protein etc your body needs and also the sceince behind it all. This book is golden. If you want to get the best out of your sport or fitness buy this book.

Anita Bean is to training and nutrition as Jamie Oliver is to cooking. Easy to understand and the methodology can be easily applied. However well you train, you won't achieve the optimum performance unless you have taken the right food and drink before and after a session, and taken it at the time that it will have the best effect on your body. Anita Bean not only provides that advice, but also covers weight gain and loss, young athletes, women, and 'veggies'. If you're half serious about your sport and fitness, you need this book. Whilst all the reviewers so far have given this book 5 stars, the best endorsement for me was when I recently attended an outpatients department and the young clinician who saw me reading the book said; "that's great, I read it at Uni".

I have been training for about 4 months now, and last ,month I bought a book from Amazon called Muscle Mechanics which was great.

But there was a piece of the jigsaw missing - nutrition.

I ordered this book based on reviews etc. And I am extremely happy to say it is all I will ever need. I know little about nitriotion, but this book has given me a much better understanding. I have already made adjustments to my diet and based on the advice in the book will start taking additional supplements. If your Vegan, young, old - this book is for you.

A "must-have" reference book on nutrition for all athletes,body-builders,fitness buffs,runners,cyclists....anyone who trains.
Well laid out,simple to understand,and allows you to pick-up important little nuggets of information and adapt them into your training regime.
Will be well-thumbed in ANY gym by trainers and athletes looking for that LEGAL extra edge.

Dont bother buying the newest edition of this book. The edition i bought is well written, well explained and good value for money (bought if for a fiver). If you're just interested in nutrition, training for an endurance sport or want to eat more healthily, this book will prove invaluable. very happy
