Editorial Reviews

Review

"As a person and a professional athlete I pride myself on a great work ethic and a healthy diet. This philosophy led me to a 23 year Hall Of Fame career. The All Pro Diet takes the guesswork out of how an elite professional athlete eats, trains, and thinks. This book is for anyone who wants to improve their fitness, performance and health!”
-Warren Moon, NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback
 
“Anytime I can line up with Tony Gonzalez I appreciate the opportunity, whether it be on the football field, in this great book, or just as a person I have great respect for. The All-Pro Diet works for him and it will work for you! Tony is a special person and a special football player, so when he offers his approach to diet, exercise, and success-- listen!”
-Coach Dick Vermeil, SuperBowl XXXIV Champion
 
 "Tony Gonzalez, who is a premier world class athlete, is doing a public service that may be far more significant than he realizes, and he is doing so with enormously impressive courage. Examine his diet closely, and you will see that he has come a long way to improving not only his own health but also has done it without sacrificing his ability to play football with the best of the best."
-Dr Colin Campbell, Author of The China Study
 
"Tony Gonzalez and Mitzi Dulan are two of the best at what they do. The All-Pro Diet is full of practical information backed by scientific research. This book is a must read for anyone wanting to perform their best, be healthy and live like a pro!"
-Jeff Hurd, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach, San Diego Chargers

The plan is, however, great for those wanting to lose weight.

I have been waiting for this book for a year now,and I was not disappointed! As a strength coach I am always looking for ways to improve the performance of my athletes on the field and on the court.This book has it.No fluff just the real stuff! Mitzi Dulan has guided me on how to have my high school athletes eat on game day and how to eat better to perform at a higher level than most high school athletes.
Coaches do your self and your team a huge favor buy the book.It takes all the guess work out of what to eat and when to eat it.Mitzi also has a DVD out that is very helpful as well.

This book is great for anyone who is serious about revamping their diet and ready to start living healthfully. This diet is appropriate for anyone- from kids, to businesswomen to Pro Athletes. It is nutritionally sound (co-written with a Registered Dietitian) and provides recipes, nutrition info, meal plans, and exercise plans.

This book advocates eating whole foods that are "as close to nature as possible." (It highly discourages fast food and highly processed foods.) It emphasizes making a lifestyle change for lifelong health, not a quick fad diet. The plan is, however, great for those wanting to lose weight. The diet is not about deprivation; in fact, you will likely feel more satisfied than ever before on this diet!

In summary, I highly recommend this book for anyone who is serious about making a major diet and lifestyle change, now or at some point down the road, and is looking for one of the most healthy, wholesome diets possible.

I live in Kansas City and I'm a life long Chiefs fan so when I heard one of my all time favorite athletes had wrote a book on nutrition - a topic of great interest to me - I picked up a copy.

The message of the book is consistent with everything else on the market today: eat whole foods, go organic when possible, limit red meat, no sugar, nothing processed, etc. The difference is the messenger: a professional athlete whose livelihood depends on his body being in top physical form. I think it gives the message a whole new credence and reaches a whole new audience that doesn't typically buy into the message.

I enjoyed the book but I'm not the right audience. I am a 40 year old, healthy female. I run for exercise and already follow a fairly healthy diet. If I ate like Tony, I'd be as big as Tony. One of his morning smoothies has over 400 calories!

I gave this book to my nephew who wants to be a professional ball player just like Tony. It's a wonderful book for kids his age. The message is so positive. The book itself is an easy read, easy to understand and follow. It's not full of complicated nutritional information or data analysis. His approach is simple and easy to understand. The lesson is equally clear: If you eat right and exercise your body will reward you by doing the things you need it to do.

I found his 17 guiding principles at the end of the book very inspiring. Tony encourages mental and emotional health as well as the physical.

I love that my nephew and young son can find someone in professional sports that uses a healthy, almost holistic approach to fitness and conditioning instead of the guy whose physique was created through steroids or other performing enhancing drugs.

Nice Job Tony! You have given us another reason to love you. We miss you, come home soon!

The All-Pro Diet is such a great book! It's really informative, and written in a way that is easy for anyone to understand. Also, you don't have to be a big athlete to benefit from the recommendations in this book; these tips can be applied to anyone! The recipes all look great: chocolate nut butter smoothie, lentil soup with apricots, acai quinoa dessert -- yum! Knowing that this information comes from an RD and a professional athlete really puts my mind to ease about following it!

Format: Hardcover
I absolutely loved this book. Mitzi and Tony are a powerhouse combination filled with expertise that can be applied to anyone - from the most hardcore of athletes to moderate exercisers. This book plays on the evidence-based knowledge of a registered dietitian (the only regulated credential available for those providing nutrition advice) and an all star athlete. Both points of view - scientific background and practical application - allow for the most balanced approach to nutrition for performance out there.

My favorite addition is the 17 All Pro Diet Principles. If you turn to any one page - THIS SHOULD BE IT! The tips are available in a quick, easy to digest format that hits every topic key to losing fat, building muscle, and living like a champion.

After studying nutrition for four years, I have had to weed my way through the "junk" on the bookstore shelves from self-proclaimed nutrition experts. I can definitely recommend this book as the real deal!

This book is simply fantastic! Tony and his nutritionist are very knowledgeable and give great advice for eating healthy and keeping yourself in great shape. I have lost 12lbs in the first two weeks of starting this diet/new way of eating. I know this drastic weight loss will not continue as I keep eating like this but I do know that I feel much better than before and I can focus on my work and my workouts much better than when I ate poorly. I recommend this book to anyone looking to cut unwanted weight as well as anyone trying to eliminate unhealthy foods from their diet. This book teaches you what foods are used efficiently by your body, and what foods are just simply turned to wastes, such as fat and excess weight. A++++++++
