Pretty informative. While a lot of the information presented in this book has been disputed (As has everything in the fitness field), the authors present a very valid argument, backed by scientific studys, that present a pretty clear case on why the time you take in certain macro nutrients, and even micro nutrients, can be vital if youre looking for performance based results.
Excellent source of information for those of you who are interested in the science of food and how our bodies use it. Pair this book with any exercise physiology class and nutrition class you will be very well informed. This book has aided my pursuit (and love) of health, physical activity and well being. I read this book well before I decided to become a Health and Fitness Teacher. Surprisingly I still remember a lot of the information I learned in this book.... which is more than I can say abo ...more
xcellent book in explaining (1) how muscles and muscle-related structures are fueled by the body, and where that fuel comes from within and without the body in order to produce energy, (2) what happens when you exercise and how energy components in your muscles are depleted, how the body reallocates resources to keep up with the stress on the muscles, (3) the impact of these stresses and energy depletion on the body, and (4) how the deleterious (catabolic) effects of hard muscle activity caused ...more
This book discusses the timing of consuming specific nutrients in conjunction with your workouts for optimal recovery and improved body composition. An area I completely overlooked before reading this book, the timing of your nutrients could be beneficial and there are studies that provide evidence to the Authours' claims. Dr. John Ivy, who has extensive research on exercise and nutrition, provides supplemental advice throughout the book. I would recommend this book to athletes, weight trainers ...more

Technical book on nutrients and the proper time to feed yourself before, during, and after a workout. Very technical writing. I'm reading it in conjunction with a couple other diet books - 'The Abs Diet, Ultimate Nutrition Handbook', by David Zinczenko, and 'Stop your cravings', by Jennifer Workman. All together I'm using them as reference material to build my food strategy - now if only I stick to the plan lol.
I really like the information in this book when I started reading it. The concepts of "when" and "what" to eat before, during, and after exercise were very good. Unfortunately, the concepts got slightly repetitive throughout the book and I think it could have been condensed into a smaller book or even web or magazine article.

added to what I already knew about what to eat and when, but Dr. John Ivy dispels the myths and shares the facts that every one of us should employ but seem to forget.

Quick read, and to be used as a reference point. I keep coming back to it.

Good book, despite being a little lackluster in terms of actual aplication...
It's ok, seems like they just want to sell product.
