The Anabolic Solution by Dr. DiPasquale is the 3rd in a generation of bodybuilding diet books. It nor its predecessor (The Metabolic Diet) is as good as the original (The Anabolic Diet) in terms of information, etc, but for a newcomer it will suffice. As heart is the understanding that the whole "fat is bad" mantra is wrong. Worse, it is incredibly uninformed, unscientific, and just plain stupid. Though this book does not go into great detail into the different types of fats, purposes, etc (Udo Erasmus' Fat's That Heal, Fat's That Kill is a great book for that!), it is informative and uses up-to-date research on the role a macronutrient cyclical diet can play in maximizing the body's production of anabolic hormones...NATURALLY. Who'd think, that burger can be good for you! Backed with scores of studies and years of research, this book is a heavyweight of information and perspective. And remember, those bodybuilders of the 50's, 60's, and 70's got big with steak, eggs, raw milk, fish...not pasta and potatoes. If you are looking for a different approach based in science, you can't go wrong with Dr. DiPasquale.
