the first diet book review part 2

In our last article, Before The Paleo Diet: The First Diet Book Review Part 1, we discussed the following:

  • Why some nutritional ideas are wrong.
  • Why some oils can be deteriorating to good health

  • The oft-neglected amino acids (protein you’re probably missing out on).
  • Why nutrition isn’t everything.
  • Dietary limitations

What We Ate Before The Paleo Diet: The First Diet Book Review Part 1

If you knew the most advanced nutrition secrets, what would you do with them? How would your life change? Would you be able to feel good, sleep well, train better and live longer?

I can’t answer those questions for you, but I want you to think about how you’d live differently if you knew you were giving yourself the best food at every opportunity, instead of succumbing to the ease of fast food, eating out, or throwing a boxed meal into the microwave.

Or what if you didn’t have to worry about whether or not a food was good or bad for you? How much would that free up your food worries?

A friend of mine sent me a message last year (2015) and said he was working on a book called The First Diet. While I don’t know this guy outside of the internet and lots of instant messaging, I consider him a friend. He’s very intelligent and one of the most critical of thinkers I’ve ever met.

What’s My Maximum Muscular Potential?

This question has been asked multiple times over on many bodybuilding forums and message boards since the inception of the internet.  While this question’s answer depends solely on an individual’s genetic ceiling, there’s one very comprehensive resource I’d recommend to anyone in search of reaching their genetic potential for maximum muscular growth.

The resource I am referring to today is an ebook called Your Muscular Potential by Casey Butt Ph.D.  He runs the website Weightrainer.net and has devoted insurmountable hours to the study of maximum muscular gains in the drug-free physique athlete.

Casey holds a degree in mathematics, a degree in physics and has his PhD in artificial intelligence for controls engineering.  He’s spent the last 18 years in a mad obsession with weight training and altering his body composition through bodybuilding.  He also admitted that he wasted his first 10 years of weight training by following the shoddy information found in muscle magazines.
