Go with Precision Nutrition from Dr. John Berardi. I've had mine for about 3 weeks now. Not only is it a book but there are a couple of DVD's and CD's to help you out as well. Great material, and really easy to follow. Check it out at www.precisionnutrition.com



its very pricey , i wanna eat for life not just for my working out needs , i want it for my health for life as well


I've heard Will Brink's Muscle Building nutrition is an excellent nutrition resource.


I just wanted to chime in quickly.

Precision Nutrition is not just about eating for your "working out needs" - it's an eating program that's designed to improve health, body comp, and daily performance.

Although I have a strong following in the athletic community, that in no way means that I prioritize athletics (or aesthetics) at the expense of health.

In fact, any one of my athletes can attest to hearing me say, numerous times, that:

"It's great if my advice helps you win medals and championships - however, my real goal is to teach you how to eat well for the rest of your life, long when you've stopped competing."
