Product Overview

Marathoners need to store large amounts of energy. Soccer players have to build muscle. Every sport has its own metabolic needs and its own dietary requirements, as the authors of this practical, scientifically sound book explain. Starting with the basics of a balanced diet, they recommend combinations of foods and eating plans that deliver the ideal proportions of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals for each type of sport. The important subject of fluid intake is covered in an extended discussion of hydration, including the pros and cons of juices, energy drinks, and smoothies. With full coverage of the needs of women, as well as vegetarians and others with special dietary restrictions, this is the definitive guide to all aspects of sports nutrition.
