Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Most bodybuilders realize the vital role nutrition plays in their progress, and the savvy seek enlightened assistance on understanding their body's use of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. But those looking for more than rudimentary guidance will have difficulty finding it amidst Columbo's jumble of personal reminiscences, warmed-over textbook-ishness, meal plans, and pro forma warnings on steroids and other harmful substances. Woman bodybuilders will also be frustrated by the scant attention paid to their special nutritional needs. Columbo is a two-time Mr. Olympia, and former training partner of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who became a doctor of chiropractics and nutrition. Photos not seen by PW. October

    Essentials of Body Building Nutrition

    Dr. Columbu is my main consultant for bodybuilding and nutrition. He has changed my life, even though I started bodybuilding when I was in my fifties. He is very honest with me, his customer. He does not think much of supplements found in bodybuilding magazines. He competed successfully against Arnold Schwarzenegger during the Golden Age of Bodybuilding, the 60s and 70s. In approaching the subject of nutrition, Dr. Columbu has gone from the general to the specific. He begins with a brief story of his life as related to nutrition followed by chapters on the body as a universe basic nutrients supplements, vitamins and minerals, drugs and wonder foods, and eating for success. Columbu's nutrition is a reflection of his Mediterranean background, since he is from Sardinia. Southern Italians have one of the world's best diets. I recommend this book to any athlete who has concern about his nutrition.

    Great for the money

    This book is fantastic for all people that are intersted in any kind of nutrition. Not just bodybuilders or athletes. I strongly suggest it. It explains almost anything thing that you may want or need to know about almost any vitamin, mineral, or other harmful/harmless products. The products range from tobacco to pot, to the, 'so called' 'Wonder Drugs.' Definitely take a look at the book at the very least. I guarunteee that you wont be sorry.

    Good but very very basic....

    This book is quite readable, but disappointing because it is not so comprehensive.I had expected more detail and more coverage of nutritional supplements. But this will probably be a classic in the bodybuilder's library.
