Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. Sort order. Apr 20, Mike Spinak rated it really liked it. I read Optimum Sports Nutrition almost two decades ago. For the time, it was quite cutting-edge nutritional science. It It was also somewhat innovative. And perhaps a bit iconoclastic. I followed many of the suggestions in this book, and they worked remarkably well for me. The benefits were dramatic, even with my lesser physical make.

FIelds such as nutrition, physiology, and biochemistry, have made huge strides in the last 20 years. I imagine this book is now quite outdated, in the face of curr I read Optimum Sports Nutrition almost two decades ago. I imagine this book is now quite outdated, in the face of current best knowledge and best practices.

I don't know whether there's anyone carrying on taking this unusual kind of analytical, boldly independent tack with nutrition for maximizing performance, As Colgan's book did.

If so, I'd love to know about it. If not, then that's unfortunate. May 08, Parker rated it really liked it Recommends it for: People who exercise for more than 2 hours at a time. Recommended to Parker by: Found on the bookshelf at my gym. Colgan is intelligent and does a good job of making sure he has multiple studies and resources to back up most of his findings.

I do not, however, think that it is necessary to drink only distilled water, and i'm pretty sure it was a typo when he said that an athlete should consume g of carbs following a workout.

Thats a pound of sugar. Also, the book is geared towards upper level and elite endurance athletes like marathoners and triathletes. Don't bother reading this book unless you're R Dr. View 1 comment.
