Any Books on Nutrition??

Hi,
I am new here(been lurking for a while) and I was wondering if there are any good books on nutrition I could pick up.

I am not looking for a diet program style book but a book that will give me the lowdown on nutrition as it applies to weight loss & muscle building.

It is a little overwhelming to me so I need something to break it down into easy to understand english.

I know there is a lot of good info on this site but my job requires alot of travel so something I could take with to read would be helpful.

Thanks,
Sam

try precision Nutrition at

www.precisionnutrition.com

well explained and structured. Explains the most important parts relevant to athletes.

Unless you just want a text book on nutrition. Then just go to a university and get the latest section of a biology compendium on metabolic pathways etc. It will be next to impossible to fully comprehend without a physiology background.
