From the Back Cover
REPAIR YOUR GUT, REDUCE INFLAMMATION & GET YOUR DIET RIGHT
Food cravings, gut issues, stubborn body fat, chronic headaches, and brain fog are problems athletes face every day. While you might be inclined to push through pain and discomfort, you could be overlooking symptoms of food intolerance.
Popular diets that eliminate specific food groups may yield short-term results, but for most people they are overly restrictive and fail to identify the real food culprits. In The Athlete's Fix, sports nutritionist and pro triathlete Pip Taylor helps you find the foods that make you feel and perform your best, with a sensible, step-by-step program.
To get your nutrition on track, Taylor maps out a base functional diet that will help you identify the specific foods and ingredients that could be causing the following problems:
- Gluten intolerance
- Lactose intolerance
- Reduced tolerance for digesting specific carbohydrates, including fructose
- Reactions to food chemicals such as salicylates, amines, and glutamates
- Inflammation caused by poor nutrition and foods that are not well tolerated
Once you're free of symptoms, you can start adding safe foods back into the mix until you arrive at a personalized, high-performance diet that allows you to enjoy as many healthy foods as possible. And performance won't suffer while you figure it out--you'll find guidelines on how to get enough fuel for training and recovery, and delicious recipes to ease the transition.
The Athlete's Fix is a program designed specif ¬ically for athletes like you. Pip Taylor shows you the way to your best diet, one that is full of flavor and designed for better performance and health.
FEATURING 50 RECIPES TO SUPPORT A BASE FUNCTIONAL DIET
PIP TAYLOR is an accredited sports dietitian and a professional triathlete. Highlights of her racing career include wins and podiums at ITU World Cup races, ITU World Team Championships, and Ironman 70.3 ® events.
