Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent cookbook This is an excellent cookbook and we have not yet come across a recipe we didn't fully enjoy. Lots of flavour in all of the recipes and the whole family enjoys them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect First Paleo Cookbook! I bought this a while ago just to decide if we wanted to go the paleo route and it has been amazing!! The recipes are simple i have had no troubles with any of them and they all come out amazing! I find myself reaching for it time and time again, which i did not expect to happen! I was prepared to love a few recipes but i have loved everyone we have made so far!! Some ingredients I had troubles finding but found it super easy to substitute with other variations(mushrooms and fats for exampl). Some of the best money I have spent on a cookbook!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to follow with great tasting recipes I bought this ~2 months ago and it is great. The layout is fantastic with recipes grouped into three categories: 1) Those with little cooking experience 2) Those with some cooking experience 3) Those who love to cook. Many of the recipes are extremely tasty and easy to make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many great recipes! I don't eat paleo, but do like a lot of the principles (i.e. no processed food). This cookbook is fantastic. We have tried a few different recipes so far and they have all been fantastic (mmm... meatza and pad thai).

Read from the Book

Racing Weight Cookbook is not a typical cookbook.It is a cookbook for endurance athletes, who are as different from other categories of eaters as bicycle seats are different from recliners.Cyclists, cross-country skiers, rowers, runners, swimmers, and triathletes have special dietary goals and nutritional needs that are not shared by their nonathlete friends. These unique dietary requirements— especially as they relate to the goal of performance weight management—are thoroughly addressed in my book Racing Weight: How to Get Lean for Peak Performance. This cookbook presents original recipes that are consistent with the guidelines offered in that book. Of course, these recipes may also serve as healthy meals for any nonathletes in your household, but they were created especially for athletes like you.Most cookbooks are written for people who have a preexisting interest in cooking. The Racing Weight Cookbook does not presume such an interest because it is intended to enable all endurance athletes, regardless of cooking experience, to feed themselves in a way that conforms to the Racing Weight system. While there are plenty of recipes in the following pages that will appeal to experienced cooks, there are also many that require no special kitchen skills. My highest priority in putting together this book was to ensure that it was useful even to those athletes who generally would rather wash up after dinner than prepare it.In this regard, my own limited cooking abilities were an ad
