I am looking for new book to read. I figured i would look for one that is related to my health in some way. So if anyone has any recomendations on a book related to either; Diet/nutrition, weight lifting, or general health I would apreciate it.
i was just about to post asking for a book to read in general about diet/nutrition
for weightlifting i would recommend a book i am currently picking at:
Mark Rippetoe/Lon Kilgore's Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training
teaches you proper form on the most used compound lifts and accessory exercises. there is also "practical programming" and another, from another author called something to the effect of "the basics of lifting" ?
Starting Strength +1 and of course - The new rules of lifting by Lou Schiller and Alwyn Cosgrove. Both books are equally as good in their own ways. A weightlifter's library is incomplete without both of those books in it.
I haven't read Practical Programming yet, but I surely will because I've heard so many good things about it.
As for a dieting book, Here's all you need to know:
Eat more and you'll gain weight, eat less and you'll lose weight. Eat healthy and you'll be healthier.

Can I have some lean muscle & strength please? – My Training Journal
I can vouch for "Scrawny to Brawny" as well.
I've got Nutrient Timing and New Rules Of Lifting. Both are great books.

I broke down and bought the 2nd edition of starting strength, like an hour ago.
21, Male, 5' 10", Cutting
Starting weight: 228lbs. Currently (05/01/08): 168.2lbs (59.8 lost)
Alright! I'm done cutting for now. It's been a long ride, I went from obese to average. Now to put some muscle on, then cut again down the road.
