Dietopia’s notes

Two PhD recipients and an Olympic weight lifting athlete – those are credentials most nutrition books could only dream of. Resistance training is perfectly healthy for growing children and can help prevent issues in later life. It is important that their technique is correct though or it can have quite the opposite effect. The inclusion of Suzy Hamilton in the creation of this book means that you can rest assured the advised technique is optimal! We would advise that in addition to this you find some other videos on correct form so that you know what it should look like.

Growing teenagers need different a different nutritional balance to their diet, this book will help you address the most important micro-nutrients that they might otherwise be lacking.

We’re really interested to hear about this one as there aren’t many decent nutrition books focused on children so please rate and comment when you’ve read it!
