Very detailed. No pictures but I liked it.
A simple way to begin in a complex carbohydrate world
The Paleo Diet for Athletes is a simple, easy way to start off a new diet and a new perspective. Diet and exercise books can get confusing, but this is not one of them. It’s set up to make reading and creating these recipes as easy as possible, with no extra fuss. Along with the recipes, it talks about the importance of types of food for endurance and the sport you’re exercising for, something that I had never thought to do before. A great book to get started on a new, healthier eating style.
A Useful Read!
While the Paleo Diet for Athletes is not exactly a starter book, as it is focused on athletes, there is still great information that one can glean regardless of activity level. The book is arranged into four ‘sections’. First is the general overview, then a section geared towards endurance training, and another on strength training. It is great that there are recipes and meal plans specifically for these two types of workouts. The body needs different fuel for different activities. And finally there is a section on desserts, because what is the point in keeping a fit healthy lifestyle if you can’t splurge every now and then. A great book, well written and filled with wonderful recipes!
