Precision Nutrition

I am thinking about ordering this program and am wondering what others out there think about it. I don't really want to order it if it is basically what I already know about nutrition .. whole foods/healthy carbs etc.

I have been paleo and on and off zone/paleo for the past six months or so and have had good results however after viewing the Gourmet Nutrition cookbook by John Berardi I am intrigued and as I said am thinking of trying the program.

THanks for any advice!

Re: Precision Nutrition

Alarm bells started ringing when i saw that the sample pdf from the book advocates low fat everything. This should be enought to send you running the other way. However some of the recipes look really tasty, and if you were diligent in replacing the olive oil spray they recommend frying everything in with butter or coconut oil or EVO or lard, and replaced the low-fat/no-fat dairy recommendations they make with full-cream everything, you'd have some tasty stuff to eat! And healthier too...
You could do a lot better, but I've definitely seen a LOT worse.

Re: Precision Nutrition

I've got it. There's nothing earth shattering in there. Berardi basically recommends a 40/30/30 macro split. He has a few tweaks, but nothing earth shattering. Unless you really want the recipes, save your money.

Re: Precision Nutrition

I have it too, and I'm in complete agreement with Heather. There are so many free recipes floating around these threads and elsewhere...keep your cash.
