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.

I had seen Leslie speek at a strength and conditioning conference and have been waiting for this book to come out. I am very happy with it.

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.

I'll keep it short and sweet. This book was fantastic to teaching the nutrition for athletes and making it practical to use for any sports coach/fitness trainer. I really enjoyed the evidenced based information and ideas for handouts.

Leslie really seems to know her stuff and I think her nutrition expertise as a Registered Dietitian really shows in this informative, practical nutrition book.

The book is very useful and I enjoy having it as a resource. However, it came with more marks than I expected, and that is part of buying from manydvds. Overall, good book.
