I decided I needed to read more. The last few weeks I have been good at reading almost 2 books a week. I know that isn't anything spectacular, but its more than I used to read. Now that I have an Amazon Kindle tablet I am sure my reading will increase even more.
Being a fan of the Keto diet and a fan of MMA style training, I wanted to read a bit about the Keto diet for athletic performance.
I came across 'The Art & Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance' by Jeff Volek PhD & Stephen Phinney MD, PhD.
To start off with, Dr Phinney is an expert on low carbohydrate diets. These gentlemen have written other books, and that is what spawned this one.
I recommend it highly.
They bring science to the table, but in a way I believe anybody can understand it. They explain their points, back it by science and explain it well. If you are new to the Keto diet or any form of low carbohydrate diet, this is an essential read. Especially if you are training.
I didn't learn anything new, I pretty much knew this all before, but the book is full of insight and knowledge that is worth learning. If you aren't very well versed in low carb living, or have a background in science, this is an essential read.
Its a short book, which to me is a selling point.
The back of the book also contains some amazing recipes, some of which I have tried. They are easy to follow, fit your macros and taste great!
I bought my copy on Amazon, but I am sure you can find this at most big book stores as well.
