Publisher's Summary

Build muscle and burn fat easily.... A healthy way of eating you can actually maintain

There are more diets out there than you've had hot dinners.... There are countless crappy supplements promising the world.... There's all sorts of advice being thrown at us about calories, macronutrients, micronutrients...blah, blah, blah.

Wouldn't you rather just cut out the bull* and learn a straightforward way of eating that'll help you gain lean muscle, keep your bodyfat levels low and maintain good health? A simplified strategy on what to eat, when, what to avoid to get the best results from your strength training program? Something that's easy to follow and maintain, and doesn't ban all your favourite foods, while still actually delivering results?

This is it. Strength Training Nutrition 101 is a sensible, do-able, manageable nutrition guide for men and women who lift weights (or others who generally want to improve their diet and overall health). I'm Marc McLean, an online personal training and nutrition coach, and Strength Training Nutrition 101 is my masterplan for maximising your exercise efforts. It uncomplicates the complicated and makes clean eating easy.

Are you confused about what to eat and when, because we're bombarded with so much advice from every angle? "Don't eat meat...." "Carbs are the devil...." "Eat a garden full of greens for breakfast...." This is just some of the advice we get from experts in a really noisy health and fitness industry. We're hit with advice on what we should be eating, how much we should be eating...and what we should be avoiding like an STI. This book is not about choosing one diet over another. It's about getting all the important stuff right and building a solid nutritional foundation, and then building upon this with strategies for sculpting a lean, athletic, awesome physique. It's also not about depriving you of food you love and eating chicken and broccoli eight days per week.

The bottom line is that sticking with good nutrition should not be hard work. It should be easy to follow, manageable, and never actually feel like a "diet". Since I took up weight training back in 1998, I've experimented with countless ways of eating for energy, performance, muscle gain, keeping my bodyfat levels low, and most importantly, optimal health.

I've studied various nutritional courses, read countless books and articles, and used myself as a human guinea pig over the past 18 years in the quest for the best approach for all the goals I mentioned above.

In Strength Training Nutrition 101, I share with you how to simplify the way you eat and my nutritional strategies that support my weekly weight training regime for maintaining muscle and staying lean.

Holy Sh*t I Learned Some Sh*t

Every person interested in fitness needs to read this book. The audio can drag here and there but with so much information being gone over in a short amount of time it evens out. Many things I knew or knew of, but there are key parts that I didn't, e.g. 1g per 2lbs for protein, and that Creatine is completely natural. I am so glad I found this book!

somewhat helpful

This is clearly written from the perspective of someone who had problems gaining weight and muscle, and so he was not as informative/ didnt elaborate as much as he could have regarding the problems and difficulties of weight loss. As someone who is in the position of looking for more weight loss nutrition, there were a few times I wished he would elaborate more on his reasoning and research regarding this.

Good book on the basics that keeps it simple

I liked this book as a basic overview of general nutrition. It focuses more on understanding how your body processes foods and debunks myths about supplements which I appreciated. As someone with a solid understanding of nutrition going into it, I would have gotten more out of the book if I had read it years ago when I was looking at my diet and exercise routine for the first time- I wish I had known about it then. However it still had lots of good information that benefitted me now. I like how the author kept each lesson short and understandable and didn’t try to over complicate it. It made the book easy to follow and interesting to listen to.

A case of quality of info over quantity.

I was curious how much of useful information could 1-2h of information provide. But I'm certainly not disappointed. It's very comforting and relieving knowledge. Those who go for it wiil certainly save lots of money by buying this book and should also see results. Do recommend!. :}
