    What's a good men's weight lifting book that also discusses diet?

    I'm a casual lifter right now. One book that both covers weight lifting technique (useful exercises, # of reps, frequency, etc.) along with diet (protein, carbs, etc.) would be great. I'd like to add 10-15 pounds.

    Thanks!

    Any of my posts in the training or diet forums.

    If you're looking for a good book on training try "Supertraining" by Mel Siff. More strength related, however still a terrific read. I need to get my hands on my own copy, I read part of it at the library.

    "Supertraining" is a great book, but it's not an easy read and I don't think it even touches diet, does it?

    There are a lot of decent books out there that discuss exercise technique and the basics of diet. "Getting Stronger" by Bill Pearl is a classic - some of the info may be dated now and I haven't read it in years, but you couldn't go wrong with it.

    I enjoyed 'the Testosterone Advantage Plan' by Lou Schuller. Its all about diet and weight lifting for Men. Excellent read.

    Starting Strength by Lon Kilgore and Mark Rippetoe are both great books.
