If you want the UK version of this book, do not purchase yet. As of 4th October 2018 if you were brought to this page via Mike Matthew's link there is a problem. I downloaded both the audio version and the Kindle version and they are both still the US editions. I have contacted the publisher and reported here so we will have to wait and see if it is resolved.
This book is a massive disappointment for anyone looking to get their calories and macros right. It is an excessive amount of waffle followed by some recipes which look nice but are hard to line up due to the book lacking master contents page.
There are also NO meal plans. The author shockingly wants you to pay for them.
Basically copy pasted intro from bigger-leaner-stronger. Obvious advices such as How to buy meat : if it smells bad don't buy it. ( Thanks for this one ! ) Very few pictures. Recipes are not 'precise' at all. Example : To poach eggs seems like you just have to crack them in a bowl and slip them in hot water. Sorry but cooking is a bit more than this. Anyway it's a cheap book - I'll try to get some ideas out of it. But I would not buy it again :/
I paid for kindle and was expecting to be able to pay a little extra for the audible upgrade however you will have to pay for the full price audible again. I'm going to download PDF versions in future and just listen via PDF reader function!!
If you've no clue whatsoever about nutrition then you might gain something from this book. There are just too many issues with it for me to get anything from it:
1) multiple servings per recipe - I don't want to cook 6 servings of things I can't freeze or store. It's a pain in the a** to work out 1 portion 2) none of it is metric - so if you are in the uk it can be hard work converting it all, also measuring things in cups just isn't ok for anyone serious about nutrition and what they put in their body 3) barely any of it is actually cooking! Scrambled eggs and salad is not cooking! I don't need a recipe for that. 90% of the recipes are essentially heating things up and throwing in a few herbs 4) the advised macros for training seem a bit strange - carbs are fairly high, there seems then to be few recipes that can be controlled in terms of macro content - they all have a calorie estimate but if you're watching carbs or fats or using strategies like carb loading then you probably won't be able to use this book to structure your eating
It's basically like someone has sat down and made a list of everything they know how to cook. It's not very practical for fitness purposes and it's not very good.
