Robert Cheeke who started this site has a book on vegan bodybuilding. He has some information in it on raw foods.
http://veganproteins.com/vegan-protein- ... -book.html

Here is pretty big raw foods guy that has a lot of information on his site, Chris Califano http://www.thefirstsupper.com/fruitbuil ... ebest.html

Charlie Able is an 80/10/10 bodybuilder, here is one of his lectures. He's not massive, but at 56:00 he does some posing, and he's not bad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNziD5TW2Gg

I just read Robert Cheek's book and would second it. There's some good stuff in there on his meal planning, etc.

Can I third Robert's book? Is thirding it a real thing that people can do?

Are you Bob McCauley? If so I might feel a little awkward saying this, but this is my opinion.

I've never heard of him, or the book, but from what I can tell from Google, he's an endurance athlete that also practices martial arts. His writings might provide a basis for a healthy diet/eating plan. The only thing I'm Leary of is that he's writing a book about how we need these super foods/ionized water/products and guess what???? He's selling them. I enjoy a raw food diet and I get stronger ever time I touch the weights and I don't use Chlorella and Spirulina. I'm not saying I wouldn't use them, or that they aren't beneficial in athletics and bodybuilding, but just that I'm getting the results that I want without using them.

Maybe after you read it you can let us know what you think of it, and if you find it beneficial.

The NSCA's essentials of strength and conditioning has a great chapter about periodization and program design for all sorts of different goals including bodybuilding. The book is to teach you how to better train your clients but it is also extremely useful for expanding your knowledge on how to better train yourself.

I definitely recommend Roberts book, so does that make a fourth? Haha. however, I own and read McCauley's book and as much as I am sure some people could benefit, it wasn't overly informative and not "truly" a bodybuilding book IMHO. If you are interested about Raw foods, the Live Food Factor by Susan Schenk will change the way you look at food - it was the book that changed my diet forever about 4 years ago. She lightly touches on how her husband was into body building and had success while on a raw vegan diet. Hope that helps.

Roberts book is good stuff.

But in the end the only book you need is this - http://www.amazon.com/The-New-Encyclope ... 0684857219

So many great books to choose from! :?

I guess if I had to pick then my stand out favourites would be...

Also up there would be Robert's book obviously, Wendler's '5/3/1' and I'm also really enjoying reading Brandon Lilly's 'The Cube Method' at the moment.

I love Robert's book and am always finding myself going back to it for reference points. A very good book packed full of goodness.
