Fitness for GeeksIf you’re interested in how things work this guide will help you experiment with one crucial system you usually ignore your body and its health Long hours focusing on code or circuits tends to stifle notions of nutrition but with this educational and highly useful book you can approach fitness through science whether it’s investigating your ancestral health or using the lat Fitness for Geeks is a cool idea an O'Reilly book targeted at geeks all about staying healthy As a geek who has lost 100 pounds in the last few years and who wants to lose 40 this was the perfect book for me Or so I thoughtThe book is actually very disappointing Despite clearly being targeted at geeks it even includes a number of detailed references to programming it's unsatisfying A chapter on nutrients goes into extremely geeky detail about the chemical makeup of various foodstuffs but none of it has any apparent practical applications not much in the way of do this do that kind of advice just a bunch of isn't that neat? factsIt also contains a chapter and many sections within later chapters referencing available tools and web sites you can geek out on or use to collect statistics and measurements I understand where this comes from my ability to closely monitor and study things mathematically was instrumental in my weight loss but such material inherently dates the book it's less than a year old but already many of the tools mentioned have been supplanted by better ones Material like that needs to be current which means its better suited for a blog post than a printed bookFitness for Geeks is also full of an awful lot of woo Party of my geeky nature is my tendency to be skeptical so a lot of the pseudoscience about the Paleo diet it has its benefits but it's got a LOT of problems and the usual buy only from local farmer's markets and whole foods crap I found uite irritating It's one thing to make these kinds of suggestions but to assert their factual superiority with so little supporting scientific evidence is another matter and it set my skeptic alarm bells ringingGood chapters on exercise routines decent chapters on food and a handful of good stuff on sleep were in the book but were largely surrounded by filler that couldn't be turned into actionable tasks The book left me wanting much much detail in terms of actual things I could do How does a book like this not include some kind of FA with uestions like I've plateaued what can I do? or What are some good snacks for the middle of the day? How does the exercise section not include suggestions for alternatives to certain exercises for gyms that lack the euipment or for people with common injuries?One chapter brings up intermittent fasting but barely goes into any detail about it at all Why even bring it up if all usable information about it is behind a Google wall? The book is also annoyingly written with constant asides and inline data boxes so numerous that they actually occasionally make it difficult to just read the normal book part of the book Speaking of which DO NOT GET THE KINDLE VERSION The constant formatting changes and layout adjustments make the Kindle version of the book literally unreadable I had to re purchase the book on O'Reilly's site to get a PDF versionOverall not that great and inferior to spending a day or a couple lunch breaks Googling around I wouldn't really recommend it people who are looking to get healthy if they are not currently will find it sorely lacking in useful information in favor of pointless factoids and those who have adopted a healthy lifestyle will find it largely uninformativeGreat idea weak execution Perhaps a second edition is in order
