Alan Aragon’s Research Review
Alan Aragon’s Research Review is by far one of the most useful resources, for anyone studying and/or working within the world of fitness and nutrition. Having met and attended one of Alans seminars I can confirm, this man knows his stuff! Alan makes learning about nutrition science interesting and relevant, specifically he focuses on the science around nutrition, fitness and supplementation. In this world, where Bro-Science and fads mislead the masses, Alan is able to highlight the origin of confusion and present the research available to support or disprove the proposed theories. A worthy investment.
His monthly reviews, aims to sift through the conflicting, often misinterpreted messages out there by providing an un-biassed, critical analysis and application of the latest research. If you have trouble critically evaluating the research yourself then take it from us, Alan’s reviews are thorough (and often quite witty) answering all the questions you are likely to have.
To subscribe to the AARR, it will cost you $10.00/month, an absolute bargain since you get access to all his previous reviews, as well as his future reviews; based on the most up to date current nutrition research to come. Better than an outdated textbook we’d say. You can subscribe here.
