Has anyone here ever read his stuff? I saw his e-book Lifetime Strength online - just wondering if it would be a good read.

Funny you should mention his name. It popped into my head as I was getting ready to leave the gym.

Don't waste your time or your money on that fool.

Thanks. I won't!

And while I'm at it, what about Tom Venuto (Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle) ?

I have that. There are some good things in there, but nothing earth shattering.

I don't think you need to spend money on it.

Is there any good book for ''weight training'' nutrition, athlete diet, refeeds, carb cycling that any of you know?

I'm from a background where the beliefs was to ''gain muscle'' and ''to shed the fat'' you need to eat below 1200 calorie and do cardio for two hours a day. I'm paying big time right now for the metabolism consequences.

For sports nutrition head over to John Berardi's (http://johnberardi.com) site.

You might also want to check out Lyle McDonald's (http://bodyrecomposition.com) stuff.

Carb cycling is straightforward. Check out the sticky in the nutrition forum.

And you need to undo the damage you did to your metabolism.

Yep, I'm aware of that!! Right now, I'm learning and looking the right/proper way to do it. I guess I have been in denial for a couple of years that, despite starving myself, I was still getting fatter. Thank god that my good friend Dreamer made me realized that was not working anymore. The fact that she eat a lot ( I mean, A LOT!! In the right way of course) and still lost 30 lbs amazed me and pushed me to make a reflexion of my nutrition/training habits. I have a long way to learn, but I'm determined and motivated to do it.

I fixed myself the goal to come on this very informative forum as often as possible to learn good, honnest stuff! :)

You've come to the right place.
