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".
