Matt Fitzgerald and Georgie Fear have partnered to create “Racing Weight Cookbook. Lean, Light Recipes for Athletes”. Matt is an endurance sports writer and a certified sports nutritionist. Georgie is a registered dietician who blogs at askgeorgie.com and runs a habit coaching and nutrition internet-based business with her husband. Her solo cookbook “Fuel Up” is also available on Amazon. (Additional info at the LONG REVIEW below.)
While the preface of the book indicates that it is intended primarily for endurance athletes, it also correctly notes that athletes and non-athletes alike will find the book full of healthy meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner choices divided into separate sections for the person with no kitchen skills, medium skills, and for those who love to cook.
Each of the three sections has a wide variety of selections, flavors, and textures. There is sure to be something you haven't tried before, or perhaps even combinations of foods you’ve never contemplated, that you will find delicious. Beautiful photography accompanies each recipe.
The section for beginner cooks could easily be alternatively titled, “When You Don’t Have Time” because these are for the most part quick “assembly” recipes that are hugely better than sticking a bag of processed nonsense into the microwave.
Each section also contains "Concepts and Tips" geared toward that section's target audience. Examples include how to prepare eggs three ways and what a well-stocked freezer should contain.
The Introduction is extremely valuable - don’t skip it as it will help you get the most out of the book and the recipes. After the Introduction is a "Practical Tips" section regarding shopping, cooking, and leftovers.
At the rear of the book you will find Imperial and Metric conversion and equivalent tables and a nutrient content guide for the recipes. Sections include page references to recipes that are high carb, high protein, good for recovery, or vegetarian.
Purchase this cookbook; you’ll be glad you did. I’m off to make some wasabi meatballs!!!

Full disclosure: I stumbled upon askgeorgie.com near the end of the weight-loss phase of my journey in late 2012. In early 2013, wanting to be able to maintain my weight, I joined her online nutrition and habit forming online group. She and her husband are both extremely knowledgeable and caring people who truly enjoy sharing their talents to bring the most out of their clients.
Their new website, onebyonenutrition.com, will be going live some time in 2014, so for now just check out askgeorgie.com to get a feel for Georgie’s writing and numerable delicious recipes. You can also contact her through that site.
Okay, let’s review this book!
While the preface of the book indicates that it is intended primarily for endurance athletes, it also correctly notes that athletes and non-athletes alike will find the book full of healthy meals. Further, "Racing Weight" has breakfast, lunch, and dinner choices for the person with no kitchen skills (or just when you need to prepare something quickly) as well as for the culinarily (is that even a word?) experienced.
Because this is a book ostensibly geared toward the endurance athlete many of the recipes have non-vegetable carbohydrates and, therefore, are calorie dense. You can easily substitute say, spiralized zucchini for Soba noodles or spaghetti squash for pasta. These are just examples; take a cue from the book and be creative.
“Racing Weight” is broken down into three sections for the person 1) "Who Doesn't Cook"; 2) "With Some Cooking Experience"; and 3) "Who Loves to Cook".
Each of the three sections has a wide variety of selections, flavors, and textures. There is sure to be something you haven't tried before, or perhaps even combinations of foods you’ve never contemplated, that you will find delicious. Beautiful photography by Peter Bagi accompanies each recipe.
I'm going to quibble with the title of the first section because I think it's great as well when you have no time and need something quick, irrespective of cooking skills. This section is essentially an "assemble pre-existing parts" exercise (and I mean that in a good way). For example, right out of the gate (see what I did there with the racing term?) the first recipe, "Winner's Circle Yogurt", (see what they did there with the recipe title?) is yogurt, whole-grain cereal, fruit, nuts, and seeds. No cooking necessary! (But you will have to go shopping - the book is not interactive. :) ) There are a few recipes in this section that call for some baking time or (Get a loved one to hold your hand before I tell you. Ready? Brace yourself.) boil water. Compose yourself before going on with this review.
The next two sections call for increasing levels of comfort in the kitchen, but nothing is so difficult to require a degree from the CIA (that's Culinary Institute of America for all you conspiracy theorists). You should even find as you work your way through the book that your kitchen skills progressively improve.
Each section also contains "Concepts and Tips" geared toward that section's target audience. Don't know how to prepare eggs three ways? Section 1 shows you how to prepare scrambled, fried, and hard-boiled eggs. There are also tips on whole-grain bread, nut butters and even purchasing pre-washed greens. Section 2 talks about wild versus farmed salmon, how to eat healthy anywhere, and brown rice among other tips. Section 3 contains tips on preparing veggies for the entire week ahead, what a well-stocked freezer should contain, and food storage.
After a short preface, there is an extremely valuable Introduction. Do not skip this as it will help you get the most out of the book and the recipes. It talks about "scoring your diet quality". Each recipe includes a Diet Quality Score and all you have to add is "1"s and "2"s to determine your daily score to compare against an included table. Additional sections within the Introduction include "Managing Your Appetite", "Eating Just Enough", "Balance Your Energy Sources" (carbs, fat, and protein); "Monitor Yourself"; as well as on nutrition; racing weight, etc.
After the Introduction is a "Practical Tips" section regarding shopping (in-store, at farmers markets, and online), cooking, and leftovers.
At the rear of the book you will find Imperial and Metric conversion and equivalent tables and a nutrient content guide for the recipes. Sections include page references to recipes that are high carb, high protein, good for recovery, or vegetarian. For the first three areas just noted, a “V” indicates if the recipe is also vegetarian.
Purchase this cookbook; you’ll be glad you did. I’m off to make some wasabi meatballs!!!
A few years ago when all the paleo cookbooks started coming out, I ordered a few, not knowing they'd be chock full of curry just-about-everything. This is FAR from that. Racing Weight has so much variety, practical suggestions, and information on making substitutions, etc . . .
I'm excited about the book. Really excited. It legitimately seems like the kind of cookbook that will impact my life. It doesn't hurt that just about every recipe looks like the hero.
Once I got beyond the the very informative first 30 pages, I was completely captivated by the photos of the recipes. I wanted to run right into the kitchen and start cooking up a healthy storm. I am a big salad and soup person, so I am can't wait to try the "Raspberry and Feta Salad with Wheat Berries" and the "Roasted Red Pepper & Red Lentil Soup."
I love to cook so I will probably try making everything. I think dividing the recipes into groups according to the cooking ability and confidence is a brilliant idea. My husband may even try his hand at some of the level 1 recipes. Georgie Fear's creativity with fresh recipes is boundless. I really appreciate the tips for grocery shopping and cooking large amounts to have good proteins and carbs readily available without having to cook as frequently.
Race out and buy The Racing Weight Cookbook - it is best first step to delicious healthy endurance.
