I don’t have a lot of time to give this a proper review, but here is a quick one for those of you interested:

wpid-screenshot_2015-10-11-16-34-00-1.pngThe Renaissance Periodization was written by Dr. Mike Israetel, Dr. Jennifer Case, and Dr. James Hoffman.  This book helps with nutrition for strength performance, physique, and general health.

Here is the Table of Contents:

Foreword: A Guide and Starting Point
Chapter 1: The Dieting Principles and What They Mean
Chapter 2: Calorie Balance
Chapter 3: Macronutrients
Chapter 4: Nutrient Timing
Chapter 5: Food Composition
Chapter 6: Supplements
Chapter 7: Micronutrients and Water
Chapter 8: Nutritional Periodization
Chapter 9: Designing Your Diet
Chapter 10: Common Diet Myths and Fads
Closing: Using the Diet Principles to your Advantage
Chapter 11: BONUS “Trinity” Powerlifting Templates

The book discusses the major principles behind dieting and nutrition.  The authors use scientific backing to show how this method of nutrition and timing can help with performance and body composition.

Calorie balance is the most important with a 50% magnitude. (Less or More calories than you need)

Macronutrients comes in second with approximately 30%. (Proteins, Carbs, and Fats)

Nutrient Timing accounts for approx. 10%. (How many meals and what to eat-when)

Food Composition and Supplementation are 5% each. (The kinds of food and extra nutrition you may need)

There are great charts to help you understand all of the material. The final section even discusses the current myths of dieting and nutrition.

As a lifter, I am really interested in training. (lol) This includes proper nutrition to help with training.  I read everything I can on the subject.  This is the best “diet” book I have ever read.  It was very easy to understand but technical enough to be factual.
