Following the Starting Strength workout and reading Ripptoe's "Clarification" follow-up article, I'm realizing that nutrition is a very crucial component to weightlifting. However, the Starting Strength book dedicates only a single page to this topic, where he recommends that kids drink one gallon of milk a day. As an adult, I can barely drink two cups of milk without destroying my stomach; his treatment of the topic is hardly a good resource for most adult amateur weightlifters. I've seen sporadic postings across the internet on how to properly eat for bodybuilding, but nothing particularly comprehensive. In my mind, a "comprehensive" discussion would entail:
- The role of various dietary components in strength training - proteins, vitamins, carbs, oils, etc.
- Distinctions between dietary requirements for different age groups
- Differences between different nutrition sources (e.g., for protein, meat vs fish vs egg vs protein shakes), if any
Does anyone know of a resource which would provide at least most of the above, specific to weightlifting?
