Little shares his views on strength training, diet, and macronutrient composition in the diet. I have been doing the protocol for strength training in Body by Science for over four years and it works quite well. What is described in the book does differ from the earlier book, but is likely equally effective for anyone that is looking maintain their lean mass. However, this protocol would likely take more time than necessary vs. McGuff's protocol. Little also states that one should eat 50% of their calories as carbohydrates. Naturally, this is a controversial opinion in which others have strongly disagreed, and is not necessarily backed by the literature. Some of the claims made in the book are observational, some based on research.
Check out the Conditioning Research blog (see much more research and other opinions on all the subjects covered in the book) and the Body by Science blog first. Like much of the recent research on strength training, weight loss, and nutrition this book challenges much of the conventional wisdom. I happen to agree with much of it, but as someone who loves golf, I feel that the title is quite misleading.
