Format: Paperback
Monique Ryan's sports nutrition book is contains valuable nutritional information in a user friendly format. It is full of charts, meal plans, and nutrient requirements based on body size and the type of athlete you are. Monique's book teaches you how to plan your meals by the type of food needed, the amount needed, and the timing of your meals for optimal performance. I highly recommend this book to the athletes that I work with. Mary Horn, Scientist, Gatorade Sports Science Institute, Hawaii Ironman finisher.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Stacy Lynn Lerner on September 18, 2000
Format: Paperback
Monique Ryan does a wonderful job at explaining the need for sports nutrition when training for a particular sporting event--triathlon, marathon, etc---or for a moderately active person. The specificity of the content of the book helps one to understand the vitality of an appropriate nutritional combination in order to provide the athlete with optimal energy before, during and after their particular race and/or daily activity. This book assisted me in completing my first triathlon and enabled me to sustain a moderate pace throughout this event. I am confident I would not have been able to complete this event without Ms. Ryan's book and expertise. A great value and learning experience!!!!

Format: Paperback
"Complete Guide to Sports Nutrition" by Monique Ryan is an excellent book for athletes/exercisers of any level. It provides the reader with solid scientific information, in an easy-to-read format. Monique Ryan is a registered dietitian who specializes in sport nutrition, and is well-qualified to be the author of such a book. She provides the reader with information on planning and consuming a proper training diet that will allow you to exercise at your peak. This is a great book and one that I think should be purchased by any person interested in sport nutrition.
