Nutrition Books for Mass?

I am a 150 lb ectomorph looking for a good book to read about weight training nutrition. Anyone read any good nutrition books that are geared towards gaining mass?

Check out Berardi’s “Scrawny to Brawny” book. Keep in mind I’ve never read it…but I’m sure it’s an excellent read.

But did it get results for you? I read Harry Potter, it to was an excellent read…my legs never grew after it mind you :wink:

HP didn’t do sh&t for my legs, but my spell casting has dramatically improved.

I’ve been cooking up crazy brews of late…back to the point though, I was just thinking about it but I read an interview on Bodybuilding.com (I think) where Charles Poliquin listed about 5 of his favourite books, I’m not sure but I think one was about diet and the rest were training (ofcourse) and bettering your life etc…I’ll have a fish around for it and I’ll link you up.

Yes, it did work. I only did three of the four phases of the plan (illness got in the way). Anyway, I put on about 12 pounds. My caliper test stayed the same (yeah, I know they aren’t too reliable but…) and I was very happy with the result. Even if you don’t make great gains on the plan laid out in the book the nutritional info is great. Really learned a lot.

Well I’m pretty sure Berardi knows a thing or two about beefing up ecto’s. :stuck_out_tongue:

Cookbooks and menus.

precision nutrition is a great resource. pricey, but it has tons of nutritional information and recipes that make eating healthy easy, fun, and quick if need be.

Thanks a lot guys. I bought “Scrawny to Brawny” on Amazon and I’m waiting for it.

Theres no doubt about it, Berardi knows his shiznit alright, I might invest in that book myself!

also look into Chad Waterbury’s book sold here at the online store, great ideas in it

One of the best books I’ve ever read.

Scrawny to Brawny is definately worth buying. I’m on phase 3 right now and have gained 10lbs so far with minimal fat gains.

half the book is about nutrition for mass, totally changed my way of thinking and now Im finally seeing results.

I second S2B.

Another great one is the TNT Diet by Jeff Volek. Good stuff in there.
