As someone who has suffered for many years with various food issues, and is now trying to balance weight loss with marathon training, I found this book invaluable in cutting through the multitude of fad diets currently available. It educated me in a no nonsense way, as to what to eat when, and gave a choice of approach depending on how much depth you wanted to go into. I have also leant the book to my partner, who struggles to eat enough to keep up with his heavy training load. The information in the book provided him with the tools he needed, despite being incredibly different to my own needs. i.e. education on a personalised plan is what is available here.
