Review

This book is perfect for inexperienced athletes like me. Nancy understands our struggle to eat healthfully in fast-food America. -- John "the Penguin" Bingham, Columnist, Runner's World Magazine

About the Author

Nancy Clark is the author of the best-selling 'Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook'. She has also written 'The Athlete's Kitchen' and 'The New York City Marathon Cookbook'. She has been referred to as one of America's leading sports nutritionists. Clark is Director of Nutrition Services at SportsMedicine Associates, a premier athletic injury clinic in the Boston area. As a registered dietitian with additional training in exercise physiology, she is a Fellow of both the American Dietetic Association and the America College of Sports Medicine.

More About the Author

Technically speaking, I am a registered dietitian (RD) who specializes in sports nutrition. In reality, I am an athlete, a listener, translator of science into practical food tips, and a problem-solver when it comes to fueling for sports and eating for life.

I counsel sports-active people (from fitness exercisers to competitive athletes) in my private practice in Newton, MA (just outside of Boston) as well as talk to teams and groups. I use these experiences to learn what people want to know about how to eat for sports and life, and then write books, blogs, and monthly articles to help others with similar concerns.

I'm proud that my Sports Nutrition Guidebook has thrived for more than 20 years as one of the best-selling sports nutrition resources. It's even used as a textbook in high school and college nutrition/health classes--and the new 5th edition comes with an Instructor's Guide.

I've refined my knowledge to write sport-specific nutrition guidebooks for new runners, marathoners, cyclists and soccer players. I hope the information in my books will help YOU win with good nutrition. (And if you would prefer attending a sports nutrition workshop instead of reading my book, check out www.sportsnutritionworkshop.com.)

Be smart, eat wisely, live well -- and enjoy high energy.

Finished my marathon in 3 hours and 42 mins!

This is a good book for someone who has little or no understanding of basic nutrition.
Kelly Haenlein
All makes sense but it is good to have a reminder if it.

I have been looking for a book like this for a long time. Being a marathon runner is a specific sport, and Nancy does a great job of really laying out what you need to do to fuel yourself to be the best runner you can be. Sound advice, great suggestions, and even some delicious recipes.

Nancy Clark has clearly written a book that will direct runners on the best way to set up your nutrition plan. I first read her article in Runners World Magazine in December 2002. It lead me to this book, and as a result I lost 13 pounds while training for a marathon. It is a common sense approach to eating for life. No protein overload! This is a must read for all runners!

I found this book to be fine as just a food guide, but I got more out of John Hanc's Marathon book, which had a chapter or two on fueling for running. Much of what is in this book is either common knowledge or self-evident. In my opinion, you will get more out of a book on running marathons or any running magazine.

I'm a fairly new marathoner, so I cannot speak for those that already have a collection of books on nutrition for endurance athletes. What I can say is that for a novice to intermediate marathoner who is interested in figuring out the correct way to eat to gain or lose weight during training, this is an excellent resource.

I was mostly looking for solutions of what to eat before, during and after a long run, as well as some helpful tips on how many calories I should be eating and how much of those calories should be carbs, fat and protein. This book answered all of my questions. There is a chapter pretty much devoted to each one of these topics, and each topic is visited with just enough detail for someone like myself. Nancy supplements with recipes and other food ideas, and generally gives a lot of helpful tips.

The downside of the book is that I do think it needs a slight update, as the food pyramid and other government recommendations have changed recently.

I definitely recommend this book to any marathoner interested in figuring out their nutritional needs. I have found it very useful in my own training.

If you are starting to run or walk for sport events, this is for you. More advanced athlets might find it a little simple.

If you are training for a marathon and are wondering what foods to eat, get this book. Full of helpful tips and recipes. This book was great at helping me decide my pre-race meal as well as pre-long run meals. Finished my marathon in 3 hours and 42 mins!

I always love Nancy Clark. She is easy to read and follow. Instead of getting into the technicallities she sticks with practical general advice. This is a great book for those training for their first marathon or unsure how to eat through training and race day.
