Welcome to my Nutrient Timing summary! THIS is the book, published in 2004, that started the short anabolic feeding window that is still with us today. Let me be clear: it makes sense that there would be an anabolic window! Today, it seems there is not. I don’t know who to believe or if we know the right answer. While an interesting read, there are some things in there we know to be irrelevant today (eating every 2-3 hours; taking BCAA’s) and science has progressed so much in two decades I don’t recommend this book. Macrobolic Nutrition was also published in 2004.
booboo real-time book rating: ★★☆☆☆
