There's a lot of conflicting nutrition advice on the internet. It's nice having a book about nutrition that is written by a scientist and based on research evidence.
The reason I give this four stars is because some of the information is not well explained. While they tell you the amount of protein, carbs, and so on for the timed drinks they don't provide an actual recipe. The first drink is essentially gatorade + whey protein + vitamins. I think it's easier to use gatorade powder than it is to measure out sugars, potassium, and sodium individually. The next drink is protein + sugar. The last drink is a protein shake. These descriptions are slightly over simplified. To figure out the portions you need to do some math or you need a scale to weigh the ingredients.
It's a really good book that answered a lot of diet questions I had.
