Found this book to be very poorly written, full of outdated science, and severely lacking any substantial information. Many of today's leading nutritionists will tell you that the timing of nutrient intake is the most important part of your diet, especially if you are an athlete, so I was excited to read and purchase a book on this topic. I was very disappointed to find that this book provided absolutely no information on the actually timing of nutrient intake, such as... When is the best time to ingest protein when performing different intensity workouts? Is it better to have glucose before or after high intensity workouts? Should your carbohydrate timing change based aerobic vs. anaerobic workouts? When should macro-nutrients be timed for sedentary lifestyles?... None of this is addressed in the book. The book spends half the time hyping how much it is going to teach you about when to eat, but then offers virtually nothing on the subject outside of the most basic concepts of nutrition, such as... what is a carbohydrate? If you don't know what carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are then you might find some minor benefit from reading this book. The book then goes on to provide short (2 page) suggestions on what to eat when you are sad, pregnant, stressed, tired, etc... The suggestions end up being minimal, redundant, and shockingly basic for the credentials of the doctors who wrote this book. The book claims to offer the latest in nutritional studies, and as a paramedic, I personally find this claim to be a misrepresentation of the book by the authors.  I would not recommend this book as you could learn more about "when to eat" by spending 5 minutes on Wikipedia.
