What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"Dr. Kleiner's Power Eating is thoroughly based in science, yet explained in a way anyone can understand. The concepts in this book allowed me to lose fat, build muscle, and increase my strength for the World Masters Games in 2005, where I set either personal or world records in the snatch, clean and jerk, and the total."

Trish Zuccotti
National Masters Weightlifting Champion: 2004, 2005, and 2006

"Dr. Kleiner does a great job of taking many years of research and hands-on experience in nutrition and exercise to provide readers with the most current knowledge. Whether you're just beginning to work out or have been training your entire life, Power Eating is a must-have!"

Daniel Shapiro, MS, CSCS
Sacramento Kings' Head Strength and Conditioning Coach

"I needed a food program to meet the physical demands of making the Olympic team and playing in the Games. Susan Kleiner gave me that energy with her advice on timing of meals and practical menu plans—the same strategies found in Power Eating."

Kelly P. Stephens
2006 U.S. Women's Olympic Ice Hockey Team

This was a very informative book. Not really good for beginners who have no knowledge of nutrition, but great if you have a base knowledge. Lots of specific numbers based on which phase of training you are in.

This book has helped me establish a balanced nutrition program that has allowed me to see gains in muscle mass. It does not follow the typical guidelines for nutrition, but if you read the entire book, the diets will make sense. The author does tend to be conservative in her approach to supplementing with vitamins and minerals.
