Great book targeted for athletes but the paleo diet works for everyone. This diet is heavily based on rationalizing what you should eat and why for your non-training diet and combines this approach with years of research and field testing of athletic dieting.

I love this book but remember to do you own research (check who funded that research to reassure yourself that it's not biased, ie milk producers telling you dairy products are great for you) before buying into anything.

The Paleo Diet for Athletes works for me, I hope it works for you too.

If you are an endurance athlete, do not run another step until you read this book. If you want to make every step count, you must provide your body with the proper fuel and L. Cordain and J. Friel know what that is. They provide all the details for every step of your training for the entire year and each race. They cover all different race distances as well. This book gives you all the information needed and the scientific background explaining why the paleo diet is the only way for athletes.

Very interesting book. The approach is more towards long distance or endurance athletes but it can be apply to strenght athletes like I am. Since I have started paleo diet, I have kept my weight but loss fat. I also feel stronger and faster.
