Applied Nutrition for Mixed Sports | Nutrition and Health

I was somehow able to get my hands on an early copy of Lyle’s new book/DVD bundle, so I thought I would be the first to post a quick review.

Lyle lets you know what’s included and gives an excerpt from the book and DVD above, so I’ll skip repeating that part.

Firstly, I was impressed by the overall presentation. The layout of the book is very clean. There are plenty of diagrams and tables within the book used to illustrate various points.

In line with Lyle’s style, there is not a lot of fluff. I hate it when I’m reading a nutrition book and it’s full of pictures of fruit or pasta or whatever. Yeah… I know what an apple looks like.

As per the title, the book is about applied nutrition. Athletes usually don’t have all the time in the world to go over hundreds of research papers (I don’t).

Lyle has done all the research and lays out the practical information in an easy to understand format. This makes the book a nice, easy and straightforward read. Very much like the non-technical articles on his website.

I felt that after reading each chapter I had enough practical knowledge on that subject.
I didn’t find any chapter lacking in its completeness.

During the seminar Lyle gives a lot of realistic guidelines and recommendations for mixed sport athletes. He comes across as knowledgeable in the field and gives a fun presentation. I was actually surprised on how comfortable Lyle seemed to be while giving the presentation.

Lyle answers all questions very well. Again, his presentation avoids getting too technical.

Overall I was very impressed with Applied Nutrition for Mixed Sports. It is a very comprehensive package covering everything that I would want/need to know on nutrition for mixed sports without becoming overly technical.
