Review

"Sport nutrition is a part of our players' equipment. The information in Sport Nutrition for Coaches can help your athletes reach their goals. What they eat and drink as well as timing and quantity can translate to optimal performance, improved health, and career longevity.”


Mike Tomlin

Head Coach, Pittsburgh Steelers, Super Bowl XLIII Champions


"Sport Nutrition for Coaches is essential reading for coaches at all levels in all sports. It's comprehensive yet easy to read. Leslie Bonci writes as if she's speaking directly to athletes and coaches or presenting at a clinic. The tables, charts, worksheets, examples, and coach's to do lists are great resources."


Mickey Marotti

Director of Strength and Conditioning, University of Florida


"Sport nutrition is a critical component of optimizing performance. Leslie Bonci's advice about what, when, and how much to eat and drink has helped my players to fuel well, live well, and play well."


Jamie Dixon

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to learn the proper caloric intake and ratio of types of foods (carbs, fats, protein) for my child who is a competitive athlete in two sports. While the text is written for coaches of college athletes, the diet calculations can be used for anyone because they all use body weight and height as inputs.

With this text, I was able to quickly answer questions such as: How many calories/day should my child eat? What is the best way to gain weight? At what rate can we expect weight gain? Are supplements useful and appropriate? How to eat to prep for competition? When and what should be eaten? How much? What should he eat during competition? What should he eat to recover from practice and competition? And so on.

I want to thank the author for putting her expertise into a book to share with others. Since incorporating her recommendations, we are successfully gaining weight in spite of heavy daily practices, which is helping us to have better results on the court and field. Also we have solved the problem of energy crashes during competition, which has led to better results. I agree with the author when she writes that one spends too much time practicing one's sport to have lack of nutritional preparation sabotage one's competition result. This book has improved our fitness for competition. Thank you.

Extremely well written and informative. If you are dedicated to your team and can put the time in to set this program up I'm sure the results will follow.I would suggest that all coaches set an example by following the "program". You know who I'm speaking to :The overweight, out of shape coaches who think screaming at their players is the only motivation they need.

Sport Nutrition for Coaches is a 'must' for any sports library - not just coaches - offering solid insights into nutrition basics in general and an athlete's basic nutrition needs in particular. It offers tips on working with athletes with special dietary concerns and disorders, shows coaches how to develop a nutrition plan for both individuals and the entire team, and provides keys to creating healthy eating habits. Any library catering to sports professionals needs this specific, detailed guide.
