When Dr. Allen Lim left the lab to work with pro cyclists, he found a peloton weary of food. For years the sport's elite athletes had been underperforming on bland fare and processed bars and gels. Science held few easy answers for nutrition in the real world, where hungry athletes must buy ingredients; make meals; and enjoy eating before, during, and after each workout, day after day.So Lim set out to make eating delicious and practical. His journey began with his mom, took him inside the kitchens of the Tour de France, and delivered him to a dinner party where he met celebrated chef Biju Thomas. Chef Biju and Dr. Lim vetted countless meals with the world's best endurance athletes in the most demanding test kitchens. Now, in The Feed Zone Cookbook: Fast and Flavorful Food for Athletes, Thomas and Lim share their energy-packed, wholesome recipes to make meals easy to prepare, delicious to eat, and better for performance.The Feed Zone Cookbook provides 150 delicious recipes that even the busiest athletes can prepare in less time than it takes to warm up for a workout.

7 out of 7
Since last fall when this first came out, I have given out 7 copies. Each person I gave it to has cooked from it. Being gluten sensitive myself, these guys have gone out of their way to make it easier for me to cook.
Great food and nice app so far
Pros: great recipes (I've had the hardback for several months & love the food); can stand up my iPad and not have to worry about pages flipping shut
Cons: no font adjustment (would be nice upgrade), but at least can expand view with "reverse screen pinch"; page numbers in iBook don't correlate with actual book page numbers so harder to navigate to specific page except from hyperlinks in Table of Contents; no "back" button, e.g. to move between entree & sauce or other add-on
It's a .pdf! Not an iBook!
Don't buy this! It's not a book! It's a PDF of every page and you have to constantly zoom in and pan around to read it! Horrible! I want my money back!!!!!
