This cookbook is definitely a staple & great tool for achieving a fabulous body!

Here are the things I love about it,

The meals...
-are incredibly healthy
-contain easy to find ingredients
-DON'T contain long lists of ingredients
-taste great
-are meant for mostly 1-2 servings (great for people like me that are cooking for one & don't want to eat the same thing for 4 days)

The book...
-pictures of every recipe
-contains nutritional breakdown for each male (large) & female (small) portions
-offers suggestions for side dishes (I love when cookbooks do this, it makes planning meals so much easier)
-offers suggestions for substitutions that don't radically change the nutrition content
-separates meals into "Anytime" & "Post-workout"

The higher carb meals are the PW meals. Following the suggestion to eat them only after working out is great for losing and maintaining fat loss. I really like that there is no tracking calories or carbs or any kind of tracking/calculating at all! If you eat the AT meals anytime & the PW meals post-workout you won't eat too many carbs or calories, you won't eat too few grams of protein (for muscle maintenance) or calories. So much better than every other cookbook I've ever had where you have to calculate & pick & choose what meals you can eat together on the same day without eating too many calories, carbs or too few calories.

Some minor problems with the book
-typos (the protein content on a couple recipes is the calorie count repeated. But that's easily remedied by subtracting the fat grams * 9 & the carb grams * 4, from the total calorie count)

This books is the best thing which has ever happened to food lovers. EVERY meal presented in it is super healthy and meets the highest standards of healthy nutrition. You will find meals meeting low carb requirements and the ones with high carbs. All the meals are complete, high in essential healthy fats, good lean source of protein and full of microelements (vitamins etc). The meals are composed from the healthiest things on earth but it doesn't mean they are boring and not tasty, quite the contrary, you will learn that cooking and eating healthy, natural foods is much more pleasant taste experience than traditional "gourmet" meals loaded with things which shouldnt ever find the way to human body.
Highly recommended and real pity that Amazon doesn't ship those for now.

I cannot say enough positive things about this book. I have bought a few cookbooks that are geared for athletes and fitness warriors but they always fell short. This book was well thought out and planned and delivered on all points. The book is very easy to use, yet flexible and powerful enough to allow you to achieve whatever physique goals you may have, whether just simply looking to get in shape, drop body fat, put on muscle, prepare for bodybuilding or other athletic competition. This book is written by individuals that understand athletes, performers, and everyday folks, realizing that no two people are alike and how its important to experiment with your nutritional breakdown to determine what's right for you.

Here is what you get, many of which I have yet o find in other books.

PROS

* Large and small servings ideal for men or women and can be adjusted if cooking for more than one person.
* Post-workout and anytime meals. I don't recall seeing this feature elsewhere, but this helps me out tremendously, knowing which meals have that extra carb content
* Main and side dish pairings, so you can have your protein and decide which side dishes u want to use for your carbs, whether low carb or more complex.
* Meal templates to use if u wish according to whatever time of day you work out.
* Section of food preparation tips for those that need it and those who want more efficient ways of cooking.
* Tools and equipment so you know what to have in your kitchen and cabinets. Its not complicated because most people have these utensils already.
* Breakfast, Shakes & Smoothies, Meats (include game meat like venison and bison), Poultry, Seafood, sides, snacks, salad dressing.

Format: Paperback
I've purchased several nutrition-based cookbooks, and I can honestly say that Gourmet Nutrition is the best cookbook on the market. I have owned it for a week and have already tried at least 15-20 of the recipes in the book. I really like the fact that it offers suggestions for pairing basic proteins with 2 different side options - one to eat "anytime" and the other to eat "post workout." The premise being that higher carb meals or snacks should preferably be eaten in the 2-3 hours following a workout. This is when your body is most easily able to tolerate carbs. All in all, it's extremely flexible, the meals are fantastic, and the recipes are simple enough to assemble in 5-20 minutes (depending on the recipe.)

My husband and I have been trying to shed a few pounds. We enjoy food and hate to sacrifice taste to lose weight. The recipes in this book are great tasting, easy to prepare, satisfying and have truly helped us shed pounds and body fat. My husband has lost 16 lbs and I have lost 6 lbs in 3 weeks, thanks to this book and exercise. We love this book. Would love to have more recipes like this.
