Sorry Kristi...any site that attempts to morph Albert Einstein's head onto a bodybuilder's torso immediately gets the blow off (from me anyway).

LOL good call Matt :wink:

I was reading through some old posts last night and came across some comments about the first NHE book, so I checked out the site and came across this... (as above)

The table of contents looked interesting but I wondered? http://olusa.com/books/hie/hie-toc.html

hhhhmmmm?

Any book that can dedicate a whole page to the dumbbell kickback either has small pages or a really large font.

I think the value in this book/package will be in the biology/hormonal stuff rather than it's exercise prescriptions.

Graham's right. Faigin does a great job explaining the hormonal and dietary issues. Given his bodybuilding background, I'd be very surprised if he does as well of a job with exercise. FWIW, several of us gave the NHE diet a shot a while back. There were several complaints of the after-effects of the carb-loads. A couple of us came to the conclusion that, despite what the book said, the loading was there solely to remind us of how crappy we feel after eating a lot of carbs. I think it's been pointed out that, over the long-term the macronutrient ratios of NHE and the Zone are pretty close. IMO, it's better to avoid the carb hangovers and achieve that balance at every sitting.

Hope this helps,

Ryan

A little late to the party here but I'd second Ryan's recommendation of the first NHE book. Faigin does a very nice job talking about the link between food and hormonal response.

It's nothing you can't pick up from reading the CFJs devoted to nutrition (or the Zone book), but if you want more detail, you'll get a nice overview of insulin, glucagon, IGF-1, HGH, etc. and how they all interact with one another, and what kind of effect they can have on one's body.

Mike
