The authors seems to have taken an objective look at all the diet and weight training studies, and presented what is probably the nearest thing to the current consensus we'll get on the optimum diet and training routines. There are no fad diets advised in this book, I could see nothing diet-related that contradicted advice you would get from the NHS patientline website - which is policed by doctors, and is not trying to sell anything.
I had a look at some of the 1 star reviews before buying, and after reading the book can say that they fall in two categories:
1. People saying they knew all the stuff in this book already, and that it's for 'beginners' - well, for a start this book doesn't claim not to be for beginners (there is sequel for more advanced lifters anyway), and also, if you've been getting your diet wrong for years, you still are 'a beginner'.
2. Proponents of low-carb diets, unhappy that it doesn't endorse their preferred diet.Read more ›
Now, as I was browsing Amazon for a few intersting things, I happened acros Mike Matthews' The Shredded Chef for pennies and decided to buy it. Based on the information in that book, and on Mike's website, I thought I'd give this one a try. Now, the Kndle version has its flaws and the book itself could perhaps be laid out a little more efficiently - it suffers, as most workout books do, from containing about 60 pages on what this book will do for you before it tells you how to do it - the information given in it is honest, straightforward, well researched (whether or not you agree with that research is up to you) and well explained.
The workouts are similarly straightforward and easy to follow (BLS is very very simple - lift progressively heavy weights using effective compound exercises, check your diet and don't go mad on the cardio). If you work out at home then you may need to make a few adjustments (there are some alternatives in the book and there are a plethora of muscle forums with ideas for you to try).Read more ›
