As a college sports dietitian, I have been using this book with my vegetarian athletes (and non-athletes) for some time now. I like the way the author uses a conversational tone to cover the scientific and evidence-based information. Most books with this caliber of information are very dry reading. She gives professional-level details to determine an athlete's nutrition needs, but also gives a more general means of calculating calories and foods to supply adequate carbs, protein and fats via the vegetarian pyramid.

My favorite part of the book is Chapter 14, with its many practical suggestions for quick and easy meals and snacks. I think that it, by itself, is worth the price of the book. The suggestions are great for busy vegetarians (which includes all athletes and most other non-athlete vegetarians I know). The nutrition athletes need is translated into foods they can easily get hold of, prepare (if necessary), and actually eat. The author does a great job of giving vegetarians lots of do-able options.

Excellent book! All of the information I ever wanted about being vegetarian plus tips concerning sports nutrition compiled in one source. (I've been veggie for 15 yrs.) I did my first sprint triathlon this past summer, and am looking forward to all of the help of the nutritional advice for my next, longer distance race. I definitely recommend it!

This is a great book...this was how i became a vegetarian concience,regardless of your sport or level of performance, by reading Vegetarian Sports Nutrition, you will learn ways to use nutrition to improve your performance and overall health. For those with some nutrition background or a strong interest in nutrition, the book included clear discussions of key nutrients for athletes--from protein, fat, and carbohydrates to iron and vitamins.For those who are mainly looking for practical advice, there are lots of lists, charts, and tables that show how to plan a healthy vegetarian diet that takes into account your level of exercise, fitness goals, and personal characteristics. There are ideas for making quick meals and snacks, eating before, during, and after events, and remaining injury-free. Also, there is an extensive, well-documented discussion on whether to use supplements. This book would be a valuable addition to the library of any active vegetarian or vegan or of any athlete who is vegetarian or who is interested in moving towards a more vegetarian diet.Thank you...it change my life...really...

I was desperate. I have both CAD and type 2 diabetes. I needed nutrition information that included recommendations for a exercise and fitness regimen... and this book complimented the information and advice from my medical doctor books. I thank the author for her sharing what she has with all of us.
