    Anyone have any recommendations for general nutrition books? Preferably not a "For Dummies" Book, as I really don't like their general format. And not a diet book. If worse comes to worse, I might just go get a nutrition textbook, but they're like $80, so, I'd like to find something less than that.

    It really depends on what you're looking for.

    I read Scrawny to Brawny about two years ago, and for Christmas this year, my partner bought me Precision Nutrition, from the same author. He wrote it with some gourmet chef friends of his, so it's got great recipes in it, and tons of info on what to eat, when to eat it, and why.

    Of course, if you're looking for something closr to a text book, or a lot cheaper, that's probably not the way to go. The Precision Nutrition system costs about $200, I think. It's well worth it, in my opinion.

    A couple weeks ago I discovered a book called Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle. it talks about proper nutrition, setting goals, exercise, how to deal with different body types, differences in types of carbs, guidelines when eating out, when to eat.

    It's very in depth and scientifically written, and close to 350 pages. I haven't really read thorough it thoroughly, but it seems to be full of good basic info.
    The web site for it is really quite frightening and makes it look like a big scam.

    A pdf version can be found else ware on the internet if you know where to look. Cough Cough Torrent Cough.
