From the Publisher:
Whether you are an amateur or competitive runner, cyclist, or endurance athlete—or you simply have an active lifestyle of regular aerobic activity—knowing how to eat properly, what to eat and when to eat it can be confusing and overwhelming. Books on sports nutrition are often so specific they are impenetrable, and books about food for fitness are not only limited in their message but are also unnecessarily complicated. The Athlete’s Plate presents nutritional information that is simple to grasp. Its recipes are delicious, yet they have been designed to be quick to prepare. Every recipe in the book supports active lifestyles with balanced nutrition, including all of the vitamins, minerals, protein, fats and carbs that are necessary for athletic health. In addition, for those looking to lose weight or simply improve their daily diet, The Athlete’s Plate presents clear guidelines, tasty recipes, and an easy, enjoyable path to a better lifestyle.
