I know it's late but I just watched this video.

Regarding eating and exercise, I really like a book called Core Performance by Mark Verstegen. It worked really well for me and I did it at home however it got me thinking about 2 things discussed in the video.

1. He has a couple chapters dedicated to eating correctly.

2. He has a chapter about adapting some of his exercises for those who travel - specifically exercises to do in your hotel room.

The book is worth the $20 for those interested, or who travel a lot, or both.

    Are there a lot of revolutionary ideas/advices in it? Or more common ideas presented in a more appealing way?

    I'm not that in tune with the exercise world to know whether its revolutionary or not. My guess is no. The book is 10 years old now. He promotes eating 6 small meals over 3 big ones. He provides lists of good, bad, and neutral foods within each food group. He gives options for schedules that you can follow (which would help with maintaining structure in your day - also discussed by Dr. Cardner in the video). His program goes for 12 weeks, set up in four three-week sections.

    His clients are mainly professional athletes from various sports: baseball, football, soccer, golf...each writes an intro for a different chapter in the book. It's interesting to read how a 6-foot-7 NFL lineman uses a physioball.

    It just rang a bell with me as I watched the video so I thought I'd throw a suggestion out there. It's an easy read, it works well for those who work out at home, it provides exercise and eating suggestions for those who travel, and it only cost me $20.

    I really liked the book. For me it was worth $20. I did buy it 7-8 years ago.
