    Health food CAN taste great!

    My husband and I are regular people. I am a nurse and he is in advertising. Our main goal is to be healthy together. So he bought this book and I started cooking from it. It has been a week now and all I can say is WOW! The meals are all natural, easy to prepare, and they taste fabulous. If you are like us and getting tired of the same egg, fish, and chicken dishes that you are used to eating, then try this book. Yes, it has many fitness tips that are geared towards men, but the recipes can be enjoyed by anyone, man or woman. This book was certainly worth the buy!

    Overall, I liked this book. In it, Gregg covers the basics of eating to not only build muscle and lose fat, but to be healthy too. He gives concise, easy-to-follow rules that will help you avoid the major pitfalls of diet and nutrition.

    The book has a decent selection of recipes and many are tasty and easy to prepare. As other reviewers have said, there are a handful of fillers that we could've done without, but I don't feel ripped off.

    All in all, this was a good addition to my library.

    P.S. I recently finished Bigger Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Male Body (The Lean Muscle Series), and I highly recommend it if you want to learn exactly how to train and eat for maximum muscle gains and fat loss. It's VERY comprehensive and gives you everything you need to know.

    Excellent Book

    My husband and I love this book. It has helped tremendously with eating healthy and making FAST and EASY recipes. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to eat healthy and not put a lot of time into their cooking. I am buying this book for my brother (marathon runner, triathlete). This would be perfect for him to incorporate into his regiment.
