This "Power Eating plan" is an high-carb way of eating. No starving or low-carb/high fat rules are allowed! It's really healthy and easy to follow (for most of us). Susan Kleiner suggests to eat 300-400 grams of carbs a day to build mucle mass or lose bodyfat. Nutritional supplements are not an important part of this eating plan. It is really an equilibrate diet for young weightlifters or sportsmen in good health, but in my opinion not everybody should follow this high calorie-high carb diet: it can make you a bit fat! With this book,the reader learn to plan his diet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy-to-understand, AMAZING book! 17 Nov. 2010
By ProTrainer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is amazing! I have bought 3 copies and have given 2 away as gifts to my fitness-savvy friends. The book is extremely useful, whether you're trying to lose weight or gain, or whether you're sedentary or athletic, although it's targeted to athletes - even to extreme athletes. It explains in scientific, but in VERY easy-to-understand language WHY you should consume a certain amount of carbs, protein, fats, etc, rather than just telling you in a more dictatorial way that you SHOULD do it. It explains metabolism, nutrient breakdown, meal timing, and more. Even as a personal trainer, I have found it to be a very useful tool on top of what I already know, because it makes it easy to explain to clients or friends why they should eat grains, at what times sugar can be ok, when to take your pre-workout meal and why, and much more. I'd choose this over any nutrition book I have ever read!

5.0 out of 5 stars great for beginners and experts alike. 4 April 2013
By travis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading reviews I decided to give this book a try. I've been looking for a book that isn't filled with fantasy diets to pack on pure muscle in 6 weeks. I have been a natural bodybuilder for about 3 years and love to research and learn everything possible about what I Do but 90% of books and online articles out there are just to get publicity so they dumb everything down and make outlandish claims so the "lazy" people will be attracted to them. This book is NOT that, within 50 pages I knew I was going to love this book. She speeks from experience rather than most trainers that don't even practice what they teach.
If you are looking for a book from a person with real experience and are willing to do the hard work to achieve what most give up on 2 weeks after there news years resolution, then you must read this book. Even if you are a seasoned athlete looking for tips on nutrition on how to have more energy for high intensity training this is a must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book based on evidence 4 Aug. 2012
By ldanjr407 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received this book a couple of days ago and I have almost finished it. I like the fact that most of the information provided is based on scientific research and evidence. Some of the reviewers are correct when they explain that the book is brutal in terms of understanding some of the biology involved. However, it doesn't expect you to understand that we breath oxygen to gather electrons exiting the electron transport chain through oxidative phosphorylation. If you don't quite understand something, google it! What's wrong with enhancing your brain while enhancing your body? Spend a little extra time on adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The only gripe I really have is about Amazon. When I removed the book from the dry packaging I noticed that the first one-hundred pages were wet. Obviously, someone shipped it to me in that condition. No biggie though, I put my wife's blow dryer to it and other than a little waviness to the pages, it still reads just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power eating really is a science!! 2 May 2011
By Hecatight - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was introduced into the diet and nutrition world from a close friend about a year ago. I've always had my meal plans made for me and only understood the basic concepts of eating healthy. THIS BOOK explains everything you need to know to stop asking other people for advice and/or nutritional information. I now have a much sharper understanding of how to combine foods together to make a potent meal based on goals to either lose fat, build muscle, maintain or get cut for competition. I'm proud to say that I've stopped asking since reading this book, I now hold the power create my own healthy lifestyle-created MY way!

Great read, informative with great evidence and references but there is loads out there in the same field however one of the better ones. there is more books out there that give the same message in simple terms but this give you more science which makes you feel that the work has been put into this book. well worth it.
