Complete Book of Sports Nutrition

by ShellyMeltzer (Author), Cecily Fuller (Author)


Good nutrition is not just important; it can give you the edge to boost stamina and increase endurance. By eating right - and this includes taking sufficient quantities of fluids - you'll be sure to put in a winning performance. This book will look at the building blocks of good nutrition and how eating right supplies the body with the right amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water. But it's not enough just to eat a balanced diet - different sports have different requirements, such as boosting power or increasing energy. Complete Book of Sports Nutrition looks at these different needs, as well as the special needs of women and vegetarians. Fluid intake is critical for success on the sporting field, and the book also looks at the importance of hydration as well as the pros and cons of juices, energy drinks and smoothies.
