Check ebay or Amazon's used books. I recently got NHE for $10. You can get a lot of the more well known books (Zone, Protein Power, Paleo Diet, etc) for under $5 including shipping.

The only book I'd add to what's already been mentioned is The Omnivore's Dilemma. It's not exactly a nutrition book, but it's a really interesting look at the food supply.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone.

I just want to make sure, though... Those of you who are talking about Protein Power, is this what you're talking about?

Because it looks really cheesy.

From my short bit of reading of the original Protein Power book (not LifePlan) on the parts about the Egyptian high-carb diet and poor health, the Eades write very well and make an entertaining read...

I recently ran across The Paleo Diet for Athletes and was wondering if it was worth reading.

A book I found incredibly informative and extreemly well researched and informative was "Good Calories Bad Calories" by Gary Taubes

The Paleo Diet For Athletes is geared towards endurance athletes (or maybe people who work out more than once a day). It's pretty much The Paleo Diet plus pre/post workout nutrition which is mostly paleo carbs. I enjoyed it though.

I agree, Good Calories Bad Calories is my favorite.

Does anyone know if there is a big difference between Protein Power and Protein Power Lifeplan?

The Okinawa Way by Bradley J. Willcox, Makoto Suzuki and Craig D. Willcox. - If you want to know how to live a long healthy life ask an Okinawan. If you don't happen to know any Okinwans read this book instead and discover the diet and lifestyle secrets of the worlds healthiest and most longevous people.

Yes, that's the PPLP that you should be reading. It's an excellent nutrition book, covering quite a few aspects that other books don't. What's that old saying about judging a book by its cover?

Craig, no clue of the differences in the two. Only read PPLP. I believe PPLP was an updated version of the original PP, but I might be wrong. It happened once.
