I'm a middle-age female with a science background, and found this book both intellectually stimulating and full of practical tips. I'm trying to do everything within my means to stay in shape, and knowing the reason why I need to do something (nutritionally) actually motivates me more to do it, and this book explains the science is such an accessible way that it is a joy to read. I'm going to recommend this book to all of my friends.

Just when you thought that you had read the sports nutrition "Bible" (Dr. Benardot's first edition of this book), a second edition appears which is better than the first edition! This informative book is a MUST read for any and all sport enthusiasts who are looking for the cutting edge. Coaches, athletes, instructors of nutrition classes and anyone interested in learning more about nutrition and human performance will gain an edge after reading this book. I urge all of my colleagues and friends to buy this book and read through it carefully. It has advice and suggestions for just about everyone. Professors and colleagues, if you have been searching for that perfect book for a sports nutrition class, this is it.

This book is widely considered THE text on sports nutrition, and it's even better now that it is updated for 2012. Sports nutrition is a quickly advancing field and having the most recent information is important. Benardot covers very important information for athletes, including:

* Ratios of carbohydrates to proteins to fats, and how the body utilizes these nutrients. Unfortunately this section is a bit dated and reflects the old 60's thinking that advocates low-fat, high carb diets. I would have preferred more up-to-date information based on the studies conducted since then that show a high-fat, low-carb diet is healthier. There is a lot of research now on the way these diets can both help and hurt anaerobic and aerobic performance, and this information is sadly lacking. This is one of the few "cons" of the book.
* The effects of vitamins and minerals on performance, and how these micronutrients function.
* The best concentration of carbohydrates for sports drinks, gels, etc.
* Which supplements work and do not.
* How best to spread out nutrient intake across the day and before, during, and after activity.
* Specific recommendations for athletes of particular types of sports, such as short, high intensity sports or endurance sports.

All of the material is very well cited and most importantly, you gain not only an understanding of "what" but also "why". The author provides a tremendous amount of information on anatomy and biology to explain exactly how metabolic processes use the nutrients you consume so you can apply that information to your unique situation. This is a must-have book for any athlete.

This is a great text book on nutrition and hits nearly every angle of the nutrition plan. At times it is a bit much to absorb, but if you're serious about your education and want to maximize your results then book is well worth the investment. Just don't think of it as a weekend read. It is safer to say, that you should plan on a good six months of reading with periodical follow ups to refresh.

With all the fad diets out there, it is interesting to read something about nutrition that is scientifically-based and completely objective. The author sites studies that have been done in reference to every claim that is made. This book is very interesting and informative.
