If the headline for the book is The Ultimate Guide to Triathlon Nutrition, I would expect for it to tell something real about nutrition for triathlon, or at least something new about sports nutrition. Not just a quick reference to "oh, and if you do sports, this will apply too".
This is a book for those who really are new at -- well -- eating. The first 20 minutes is just repeating how good nutrition is good for you and how you will perform better if you eat right. No advices here, just full on glory about "good food = good". Then comes the "how to eat" -part which is basically telling you to eat like the USDA food pyramid says. Oh and whole lot of information about different foods. Meaning "Tuna, 130 calories, 15 calories from fat, 1.5 grams total from fat, 2 % daily value, 0 grams saturated fat, 0 % daily value...." It's really numbing to listen and it really doesn't work in an audio book. Then comes another part about how good food means good life. The book gives you amazing discovery of "eat less, excercise more".I think the author really underestimates the reader in so many levels. I would understand if the book was called something like "Basic Knowledge On How To Eat Healthy" but considering the title of the book, the author could've easily skipped the parts about "did you know that if you eat one unit and excercise one unit, you won't lose weight?" There really aren't that many parts that any normal person with a tv doesn't already know.Did I already say that good food is good for you? Because this book keeps saying that over and over again in million different ways. Oh and drink water. In case you didn't know that it's healthy for you.To save you the money, I'll give you the main points of this book:-Eat food according to USDA food pyramid-Drink water-Move-Keep your posture straight-Be thankful because you can walk with your hurting knee. There are people who can't walk at all.-1 unit of food minus 1 unit of excercise is no weight change-If you eat a lot and don't move, you'll get fat
Someone who does not want to learn anything helpful about nutrition
He goes into great detail about the USDA food pyramid and what a great plan it is. I think everyone pretty much agrees that the food pyramid is too carb heavy and leads to greater obesity!
She read the table of contents!
In my two hour daily commute, I listen to a bunch of books. It is very rare that I do not finish one. I have suffered through some bad reads. This one was worse. When the author started going into how great the USDA food pyramid is, I knew tis book was a waste of time!
"Very disappointed, would not recommend"
a) I was left with the impression that this book was not triathlon specific.
b) the format of the book is not suitable for an audio book.
The book appears to be a general nutrition guide. I suspect other 'Ultimate Guide to Nutrition' books have the word 'triathlete' replaced by 'cyclist' etc. As well as the purely general nature of the content there were specific things to make me think this, such as swimming being referred to in the context of 'cross training'.
After some introduction up to 1 hour 10 minutes is taken up by simply reading out data from a nutrition table. This information may be useful in hard copy, but it seems to be of very limited use in an audio book. And that is nearly half the book.
"Need paper copy"
I can't say I was keen on the narrator. The book was difficult to use without the tables )which were read out!)
Not good at all
