View Full Version : Nutrition Book?

04-13-2004, 06:27 PM
Anyone know of a really good book on basic nutrition? I'm not looking for a diet book, just a book that goes into depth about foods and what certain vitmans and minerals and such do to us? Looking to educate myself more on what exactly I'm putting into my body.

Hmm, a good start would be all the nutrition articles on the main page.

I actually have a similar request to this one, so my as well share the thread. Can anyone reccomend a book that has information about # of calories for bulking/cutting/maintaining, how much callories/protien are in different types of food, etc? I know I can find this stuff on the internet, but if a good book exists that has all of it in one place, I would definitely buy it.

Shoot..you can run a search and find it on the message board you're posting on right now, hehe. Or, as Jasonl mentioned, the main page http://www.wannabebig.com has loads of articles in one place.

In terms of reading material on training and diet, Lyle McDonald's Ultimate Diet 2.0 is a good read. Calories for bulking/cutting/maintaining is dependent on you. How much calories are in different foods? Fitday.com can tell you. A nutritional value book will also tell you, you can find those pretty simple in some book stores.

shao-lin said it all. im actually considering getting the UD 2.0 book cuz i've heard that even if you're not going to go on that diet, there is still a lot of good info to be learned in that book. and fitday.com is the best source on the internet for counting and tracking calories.

UD2.0 is a great read, but I'd say its more of an advanced nutrition book, talking about things like partitioning, insulin response etc.

Like people say more basic information is readily available online for free.
