Review: The Bodybuilding Cookbook by Jason Farley

A great resource for building mass. (4 stars)

Earlier this year the hubs got it into his head that he was going to start lifting weights. He tore apart our gaming/reading room and turned it into a pretty decent little home gym. He started taking a ton of supplements and he was doing really great until an injury sidelined him. But the one thing I was struggling with, as the primary meal maker in our family, was how awful his diet was. Instead of going for a clean eating approach where he focused on good nutrition and fuel for working out, he was eating the same thing over and over and cutting calories. What's a loving spouse to do? Find a better option!

Enter this book.

I was extremely impressed with the author's attention to detail and meticulous focus on providing the body with whole foods. Most of the recipes within were simple and rich in the building blocks needed for muscle building nutrition but also, making sure you have stamina. Sadly, the author used stock photos of the foods that, while beautiful and very appealing, were not the actual foods. I felt it was very deceptive in its visual presentation. There were also a lot of typos and some grammar issues that—while not a big issue—may be a bit annoying for some. It's also notable that the measurements are not in the US system but if you're a pretty confident cook you can easily adapt them with a conversion chart.

Overall, a great resource for folks focusing on building muscle mass through good nutritious (and delicious) foods rather than supplements.

Notes: Received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Every serious athlete knows that your nutrition is the most crucial part of building a lean, muscular and strong physique and can either make or break the results you see in the gym.

Boiled chicken breast
Baked potatoes
