Good intro to food-as-fuel perspective of nutrition. I have bit more appreciation for carbs as a training tool even if I'm still not sure how to eat more of them. The meal plans filled me with horror (low fat subway sandwiches? *dies*) I can probably eat that much fish tho :p

Informative, but rather scientific. Some of the research is already outdated. It promises you that you'll be able to make your own meal plan by the time you finish the book. However, due to the vast amount of information you are more likely be just lost and end up with a set of recoomendations of what to eat/not to eat.
