    Yeah, I returned this e-book to Amazon. I think its probably ok if you literally cant cook anything and eat takeaways every night. But if you usually cook from scratch using whole ingredients, it's pretty disappointing and there weren't any recipes in there that I felt inspired by. I also felt like it didn't actually fit that well with the overarching racing weight system, which has a big focus on the use of whole ingredients and a diet that is generally high in carbs to fuel your training.

I also felt like it didn't actually fit that well with the overarching racing weight system, which has a big focus on the use of whole ingredients and a diet that is generally high in carbs to fuel your training. I picked this up specifically hoping it would help me hit my daily carb targets that are set through Matt's Racing Weight book (which are quite high). But many of these recipes are high protein instead, and just say "add a whole-wheat tortilla or bread roll to add carbs". I would need to eat a LOT of tortillas to get close to the level of carbs he recommends I eat for training, which would nerf my Diet Quality Score. The recipes also include heavily processed foods like frozen burritos, egg replacement, and string cheese, which seems to go against the overall Racing Weight philosophy of eating natural, whole foods. As a minor issue, the book also uses some quite specific ingredients which are nearly impossible to find in New Zealand (like Teff and wheat berries) without suggesting any substitutes, which is a bit of an annoyance. So, its fine if you really cant cook anything more than toast, but its certainly not for anyone who already cooks healthy meals on a regular basis. And don't expect it to help you implement the author's racing weight programme, because it doesn't actually fit together that well.

    Another one I want to buy - though I'd rather have it in kindle format so I can load it on the iPad, but this is not yet available (aaagh). I love that the recipes are divided up into categories defined by how active a cook you are. If you're not an active cook at all, there's some "1 step up from just microwave it" type recipes (frozen mangos, hydration powder... or microwave burrito plus salsa... lol). It may be a bit overly simplistic in that sense, but there's a mix of levels in there, so yo Another one I want to buy - though I'd rather have it in kindle format so I can load it on the iPad, but this is not yet available (aaagh).

It may be a bit overly simplistic in that sense, but there's a mix of levels in there, so you get a variety, and the recipes are planned around athlete's needs (protein, carbs, etc.). Everything in here looks great.

    I literally use this book everyday. It is chock full of easy recipes with simple ingredients. The dishes are well flavored and it is easy after a while to whip up your own custom variations. I have recommended it to everyone I know!

    Awesome cookbook! We are using it more and more each week. So many simple, yet delicious recipes that keep me (and my husband) full and help me feel properly fueled throughout the day. I hope to start incorporating his "diet" / point system soon. Awesome cookbook! We are using it more and more each week.

    The best thing about this cookbook is that it offers a variety of easy and nutritious recipes without breaking the bank. It also offers practical tips and the portion sizes are reasonable. The author also doesn't assume readers are meat eaters, which is also nice. The palatability of the recipes has yet to be tested.

    Great cookbook for someone who wants to use food as a tool for athletic achievement, at least for the time being. Delicious and functional, and most importantly, easy.

    Fun, tasty, and fast ideas for someone who doesn't particularly like cooking and/or is a time-starved bachelor and/or both. Not sure how this related to triathlon/endurance sports except that the meals were on the healthier side and the authors are athletes. I liked that it was categorized by difficulty of meal, and that the easiest recipes are actually appropriate and truly accessible for those without prior cooking experience.

    This cookbook is a little too simple for me (one of the recipes is literally, "heat a frozen Amy's burrito"), but there are still a few recipes in here I'll try. Liked that it was mostly (more than half, at least) vegetarian, but didn't like the use of things like just egg whites (I'm a whole food girl) and protein powder.

    Not as informative as I would have liked. Added a few new recipes to my general rotation but other than giving me a firmer grasp on what DQS should look like per a recipe, didn't give me a lot in the way of cooking. Overall worth the read but doesn't go above and beyond. Not as informative as I would have liked.
