The recipes in this book that we have tried so far are very good, but there are countless typos, some recipes are unclear (i.e. whether to start with cooked or uncooked meat) and some recipes are word for word copied from Men's Health Muscle Chow: More Than 150 Meals to Feed Your Muscles and Fuel Your Workouts. We do use this cookbook over the Men's Health one, because it's easier to navigate. Just something to think about.

I hate cooking and I'm not afraid to admit it. But I knew that my wife and I had to change the way we eat to live a healthier lifestyle. This book has all the basic facts you need to know about healthy cooking. The recipes are very simple and they taste great. I was afraid that the recipes were going to taste bland and not have a whole lot of flavor but I was completely wrong. We have tried at least 6 recipes so far, and they have been fantastic. And on top of that, they are so easy to prepare. I highly recommend that you pair this book with the Bigger Leaner Stronger (male or female versions) that Mike also wrote. The books go hand in hand. You will see some information that is redundant, basic nutrition facts, between the two but that is fine. Its in case you have one book and not the other. But it is all useful in the end. Hands down this is the best cook that we have bought and actually look forward to continually using it.

This book is a steal, for just shy of $5 you get a book full of over 110 recipes designed to help you meet your goals, get ripped or get big.

The book starts off with a short and sweet but effective rehash of some basic tenets of healthy eating and nutrition. The author provides you with some great baseline nutrition goals to meet based on your desired outcome. Don't skip this section! There's a lot of good info here so take a look before you get started.

Each section of the book is split between heavier meals (more calories,protein, and carbs) to help you gain muscle mass and lighter meals (less of the aforementioned items) to help you keep your calorie intake low if you are working towards weight loss goals. Each recipe is preceded by a breakdown of calories, protein, carbs, and fat so that you can get an idea of what your daily intake is going to look like if you're someone like me who plans their meals out in advance.

Along with providing recipes for all major meals, there are also sections which cover salads, protein shakes/bars, and desserts. The protein bar and shake sections were of particular interest to me due to the fact that in their manufactured form both are kind of pricey and don't really taste all that great to me. Having these recipes to turn to as an alternative is a great way to supplement your protein intake during the day without breaking the bank.

All in all this is a great book and when purchased as a Kindle version is worth far more than the price you'll pay for it. This has become a mainstay for me in order to help keep my weight in control as well as maintain and build lean muscle mass.

Food is hard. I just want to put things in my belly. I dont want to worry about complex crap. Give me a simple list, simple instructions, and something I dont have to worry about undercooking killing me.

I'll put that in my belly. This has put many things in my belly. I like.

I pre-ordered this book when I was browsing the fitness section here on amazon. I'm working on the comeback (post major injury and long term layoff) of my lifetime, comeback meaning I have been there before. Only this time I don't want to eat chicken breast and green beans 5 times a day, along with some egg whites, a couple whole eggs, more greens, an over cooked piece of fish, and a few shakes. When I was younger, and didn't have a family, that was fine. It worked, painful and boring as it was...this time I want to add some creativity to my meal plan, along with bringing my wife and kids along for the ride health wise.

My kids race BMX, and kids are kids when it comes to what they want to eat...its a constant battle as a parent to convince, or trick them into eating healthy a good part of the time. I know what they eat now, though they are not over weight thanks to their high activity rate, still has an impact on their development, and will impact their health later in life. I can honestly say this book will help me improve their diet, and in turn impact their lives greatly in the long run.

I've had this book for a couple weeks now, and its showing age already around the edges and the pages are being marked 'like' and 'try'. That is a sign of a home run in my house. As the owner of 76 fitness related books, starting with the original "Pumping Iron" I've held and read a few fitness/training books over the years... I now own three books written by Mike. This one, Bigger Leaner Stronger (highly recommended as well as this one for you guys) and I just bought my wife, for Valentines Day, "Thinner Leaner Stronger" (another great book by Mike, for you ladies)...I can honestly say Mike's written work is easy to read..
