Despite being more than 20 years old, this book was well worth the money. In fact, my first thought was ‘if this amount was known 20 years ago, why isn’t it common knowledge now?‘.
Columbu has certainly ‘walked the walk’, and for that reason I was more than keen to find out what he had to say on the subject of nutrition (I realise he’s written a fair bit over the years, but up until now it’s managed to elude me). The book goes into a good level of detail on the basis for his diets, the many things he’s tried over the years – some more successful than others – as well as some basic diet plans for anyone lifting weights.
Yes, this book is a valuable resource for anyone who loves the iron – not just bodybuilders. Without being swayed by more recent debates such as the benefits of creatine, it’s an excellent work on the fundamentals of good nutrition.
