First of all, don't be decieved by the title. Yes, it was written especially for the martial artist and mixed martial artist, but this book has great basic diet information. By diet I am not referring to any of the "fads" out there, though the book talks aobut those, too. This book gives you the basic information about calories in carbs, protein, fat and how to find a proper balance. there is a whole section on fad diets--the good, the bad and the ugly. They address vitamins, minerals and hydration. They they move on to creating a personalized diet plan (how to create one for yourself). There are a couple sections that you can skip if you're not into martial arts, but there is still more than enough information in this book to help anyone who wants a healthier lifestyle.

This book gives an excellent overview of general nutrition. It also gives an in depth discussion on various training systems to lose weight and prepare for a sporting event. It focuses mainly on martial arts but actually has applications to almost any competitive sport. The book goes over numerous personal experiences by the two authors with many funny stories that make the book even more easy to read. I have found the book to be immensely useful for my athletic requirements. It has definitely improved my training schedules and allowed me to get in excellent athletic shape. I highly recommend this publication.

There are a lot of great things about this book. 1. It's written by two amazing martial artists. One of which is Loren Christensen who is a legend. 2. it is a very entertaining read, and doesn't take the subject matter too seriously as I giggled quite a bit through this book. Some funny guys. 3. The book is jam packed with great info about many aspects of health, fitness, nutrition, injury prevention, training tips and sample workout routines, motivation, inspiration, and of course the martial arts. A lot of training suggestions for becoming a strong, fit, bad ass fighter. Plus I had gotten the book dirt cheap! Highly recommended.

This book has everything you need to know for nutrition and dieting for the martial artist! I read this and developed my own special program of this book. Im a high school wrestler and an amateur boxer and I also compete in BJJ, without the knowledge I received threw this book I would not have been able to get to my desired weight class and even feel as healthy and energetic as I do today.

This book serves as a great introduction to the theme of nutrition, focused towards athletes; specifically the ones training in the martial arts. While not comprehensive in its scope, it provides enough information so that you're convinced that what is presented makes sense.

The fact that the authors share their personal experiences (good and bad) in regards to each subject also gives the book a "down to earth" feel that adds credibility to the information being presented. You can actually feel related to some of the experiences that they narrate, because you may have encountered them yourself in your training.

I recommend and rate this book a five star as an interesting and very informative introduction type of book. After finishing the book, I find myself going back to it several times to refresh concepts and to point out the subjects where I want to look elsewhere for more comprehensive information.

This is a great book for both martial arts and non-martial artists.
The fundementals are great. There is no empty talk.

This book is full of information that is very useful in managing your body. I compete in Taekwondo, and this book covers managing your diet while increasing, maintaining or dropping weight. After reading this book I dropped my weight from 100kg to 80kg and felt great the whole time I was dropping. It explains a lot about how your body works and what it needs. The only thing I've found that probably doesn't agree with other references is the amount of your calorie intake that should be taken as protein. This book recommends a higher number than a lot of other references.
Overall, it is excellent.
Excellent book, well written with many humorous parts. The information in this book is very helpful, it is written in a way that makes something as complicated as nutrition easy to understand. Overall very happy with this book, it told me everything I was hoping for and much more.
