Editorial Reviews

Review

“When it comes to providing what the human body needs for performance and health, science hasn't caught up with nature. Too many athletes depend on food supplements. In The Athlete’s Plate, Adam Kelinson details how to use real food to meet your athletic needs.” — Joe Friel, world-recognized endurance sports coach and founder of TrainingBible Coaching

The Athlete's Plate is more than a recipe book. It is tool that empowers athletes to manage the nourishment and fueling of their bodies with confidence and pleasure.” — Matt Fitzgerald, author of Brain Training for Runners and Racing Weight: How to Get Lean for Peak Performance

“My wife and I really enjoy trying Adam’s recipes in The Athlete’s Plate. I believe they cater to athletes who need quality nutrition in their diet.” — George Hincapie, U.S. PRO Road Cycling Champion and Olympic cyclist

The Athlete’s Plate is a great book that I strongly recommend to any elite and recreational athlete. After so many confusing and misleading nutritional books and diets for athletes, it is great to see a smart book full of well balanced foods with real, normal, and easy-to-prepare recipes. Finally, a nutrition book that makes sense!.” — Dr. Inigo San Millan, PhD, Sports Nutritionist and Exercise Physiologist for pro cycling’s Team Garmin-Transitions

The Athlete’s Plate offers a simple solution to the mind-numbing complexity of the modern diet and gives you the tools you need to change your nutritional lifestyle.” — Triathlete magazine

"I found The Athlete’s Plate helpful for myself and my athletic patients. Great info, great format." — Jordan D. Metzl, MD, sports medicine physician, 28-time marathon runner and 8-time Ironman® finisher

“Want to 'get real' with not only your diet and performances but also how in your food choices affect your community and the planet? The Athlete’s Plate is the book for you. It’s a wealth of keepin’ it real for athletes while offering down-to-earth, yummy recipes for everyone!” — Terri Schneider, elite triathlete, coach, and author of Triathlon Revolution: Training, Technique, and Inspiration

“Chock full of real food recipes as well as many insightful kitchen tips, The Athlete’s Plate is an indispensible tool for the avid or even recreational athlete. Chef Kelinson has assembled a vast array of foods that will not only make you feel better before, during, or after exercise, but will also inspire you to become a better cook!” —
Peter Ryan, CCC, Executive Chef Instructor, Cook Street School of Culinary Arts

“My career in sports medicine has shown me the critical importance of real food. The athletes I treat recover from injury more quickly when they nourish their bodies with care. Adam Kelinson's book The Athlete's Plate is an authoritative guide on how to eat well for health and fitness.” — Joseph Maroon, MD, neurosurgeon for Pittsburgh Steelers, Ironman® triathlete, and author of The Longevity Factor

The Athlete’s Plate details a holistic approach to nutrition for athletes. As a runner who will never be a high performance athlete, I appreciate that my nutritional needs are addressed in the book as well. If you live an active lifestyle, you can benefit from the whole food nutritional guidelines found throughout the pages.” — Run Oregon

The Athlete’s Plate aims to show us how we can replace prepared foods with whole foods and find ourselves stronger, leaner and faster. Kelinson’s experience as an athlete, nutritionist, environmentalist and chef comes through on nearly every page.” — BikeWorldNews.com

“Adam Kelinson is the Michael Pollan of the athletic world. The Athlete's Plate provides insight into how America got into trouble with food and tells us how we can get back on track. It's perhaps the best book on sports nutrition I've ever read.” — Pete Williams, host of The Fitness Buff Show and author of Core Performance

Format: Paperback
This is a great and sorely needed book on food and our relationships with it. It is not for athletes only, but really for anyone, male or female that wants to establish a healthy relationship with food and also learn how to do it easily and effortlessly. The information was an eye opener and recipes especially for someone who doesn't really cook a joy to prepare and eat. Most important possibly is that in the short few weeks that I've had the book and am using it, I have lost 7 pounds and feel better. My body is "lighter" and my mind has much more clarity. The book has made me rethink my relationship with food and in the days ahead will undoubtedly result in a healthier me.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to begin to clean their systems and establish healthy eating patterns which will result in weight loss if desired, but more important feeling and 'being' much better.
I look forward to a sequel soon hopefully!

I was disappointed in this book when I received it. Yes, it has some great recipes. But in a book touted to improve your performance, I expected recipes that were perfectly balanced with the right protein: carb: fat ratio. Also missing: nutrition information! As a runner, the nutritional breakdown of what I'm eating is very important to me. With a little more attention to detail, this would be a great book.

Format: Paperback
I wish I'd had this book when my son was first racing bikes as a 13-year old, back in the early 1990s. I bet he wishes I had, too. (He probably would have won more races than he did on those ridiculous nutritionally hollow night-before-the-race spaghetti feeds.) Equally, I wish I'd had it last year when life had me stretched thin and it was hard to find time to cook for myself. But here it is, quick and easy, mouth-watering recipes and all, providing inspiration and advice to endurance athletes -- and the rest of us as well. I can't wait for the Portland Farmer's Market to open again in March, so I can get the locally grown organic stuff Adam recommends, straight from the fields and all in one place. Until then, I'll soak up his nutritional know how and live into his seasonal recommendations for winter eating. Broccoli soup, lentil burgers, coconut almond smoothies, chicken satay. Look out, here I come. This book will be dog-eared with food stains before long.

I am a single mother of two kids, an athlete, and a yoga teacher/studio owner with an extremely busy lifestyle. One of the best things to me about this book is it's accessibility in terms of being able to immediately and easily incorporate some of the ideas and suggestions presented. Starting with considering our relationship to our food and where it comes from, all the way to the easy to make (and I am so not a chef!!!) delicious recipes, this book is a must-read for sure!! The title can be slightly misleading, only in that I would highly recommend this book to ANYONE with an active lifestyle, not just athlete's (and don't we all have active lifestyles?)

This book has a lot of good nutritional information, as well as some great recipes. It is not a cook book per se; the recipes only take up about half of the pages while the first half is dedicated to information regarding diet and nutrition.

I have been a high endurance athlete for almost 10 years now and no other resource has given me the kind of information to step up my game like this book has. I feel that the combination of exercise and healthy eating to go along with that is the missing "ingredient" in a lot of athlete's regimen these days. This book bridges that gap.
Whether you are a high performance athlete or just someone who likes to stay in shape, eat well and take care of your body, then this book is a MUST read.

To Success!

Bought this book for Xmas for my daughter who is training for an triathlon later on this spring. She loves it and wanted to sit down and read it right away. She keeps on picking it up to look at it. She already eats pretty healthy but this book gives her lots of knowledge and recipes. Defintely a keeper for anyone in training. Thanks!!!

Excellent book. As a mixed martial artist with an organic whole foods diet, let me tell you, this book is a rare treasure. It is the first book I have ever found that properly combines the two worlds of sports and organics. And the recipes are brilliant.
If you want a healthy, conscious alternative to the usual run-of-the-mill sport's nutrition mentality then The Athlete's Plate is for you. I recommend it for professional sportsmen but also anyone who wants to find a healthier lifestyle.
