My wife gave me this book to read by Michael Pollan.
It's called In Defense of Food.

I finished reading it last night and though it was very very
good and naturally saw many similarities, many take-
always to bodybuilding and perhaps to life in general.

Now before you go jumping down my throat with both
feet and say . . . it's not hardcore enough . . . it's too
mainstream . . . I'm different . . . does not apply to me
. . it's not "bodybuilding food" . . . it's not this or it's
not that . . . he wants you to be a vegetarian . . .
bla, bla, bla.

Well, nothing in my opinion could be further from the truth.
It's about eating healthy, close to the source, real food.
Good food; good fats, good carbs and good protein (yes,
grass fed beef), eating food that your "ancestors would
recognize" (I like that line.)

He also does a real number on government and food industry
in general. A real eye opener for me in many ways.

And eating and being healthy is a prerequisite for successful
in bodybuilding. If you are not healthy, than nothing is going
to operate optimally, and optimal is what you want, what you
need to survive the stresses and strains of big-time bodybuilding.
Sure you can get always with a crap diet for awhile, but sooner
or later it's going to catch up with you . . . just like tossing
around huge weights with no respect for form or function. You
may be able to get away with it in your youth, but sooner or
later . . . Bodybuilding, like it has been said here many times
before, is not a sprint, it's a marathon.

Good book. Highly recommend it. Anybody here read it and
what is your take on it?

A quick link to check it out if interested . . .

PS. You may be able to download the book for free to your
ipod or MPS player, at your local library.

I've read that and one of his other books The Omnivores Dilmena and thought they were both good reads and recommend them frequently.

"eat food, mostly plants, not a lot" lol... not too bad of advice.
