Item description for Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes by Monique Ryan...

Endurance athletes regularly push their bodies to the limits with strenuous training regimens that demand smart nutrition. This book provides sound nutritional guidelines to boost athletic performance in triathlon, cycling, swimming, distance running, cross-country skiing, mountain biking, cyclo-cross, and adventure racing. First, Monique Ryan creates an excellent all-purpose sports diet. Based on the building blocks of a balanced diet — carbohydrates, proteins, fats, as well as fluid, vitamin, and mineral requirements — the diet forms the foundation of the endurance athlete's good health. Individual chapters then offer detailed nutritional advice for athletes training and competing in specific sports. Ryan offers healthy approaches to losing body fat and building muscle and clearly explains the different nutritional needs of training, racing, and recovery. Also included in this practical, easy-to-use guide are tips on meal planning, shopping lists, sample menus, advice for vegetarians, and a review of popular ergogenic aids.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes?

essential reading  Sep 17, 2008
this book provides the basics of nutrition, and provides lot of practical advice and guidelines. It is easy to read and put to practice. It ended my doubts about how to eat and drink for various forms of training, during tapers, and at race day. And so far with good results. More than worth the money. Joris
Quality Nutrition Guidance for Endurance Athletes  Feb 14, 2008
This is a well-written and authoritative review of many aspects of sports nutrition, with an emphasis on the specific needs of endurance athletes. Triathletes, endurance runners and cyclists will especially benefit -- there are separate spections geared just for their needs. Provides insight into not only meeting nutritional needs before, during, and after training and racing, this book offers guidance into an integrated approach to an overall nutritional program. Also provides a useful discussion of many nutritional supplements, including ergogenic aids, vitamins, and commercial sources of carbohydrates, lipids, protein, and hydration. Recommended read for the serious athlete.
