This book is another dialogue with the parents, built in a friendly and informative , appealing manner without preaching or threatening the reader.
A discovery for me was the calorie intake chart. How did you estimate the sample 4200 kKal consumption per day ( as in example with Ali)? It is more than my triathlete husband eats, and physically 5 eggs, 4 to five slices of bread and a pizza will not fit into my 26- kilo dauhter who practices 20 hours a week. I used to balance her diet by protein intake, but the calories stay far below the 3000 benchmark as she eats small amounts of everything and never askes for second. There is one guy in her gym, the olympian Frank Rijken, 19 who regularly takes protein coctails at the practice , others don't. What is the general attitude to Protifar and Pediasure mixes? Should they be taken if the calorie count is not high enough?
I have correlated my daughter's diet with your road map for a year already, and agree with every point of it. If not fed timely, the girl starts craving for sweets, taking Nutella from a jar with hands in a Winnie- the - Pooh manner and gets moody.
We also manged to settle the muscle loss with just feeding her more intensely. And it does take time to create new habits , exactly as the book says.
I think, the book will be a success and a very useful reference for " gym" parents. Especially because we are loaded with "overweight" propaganda and mythological diets. I see recently great changes in gym policies regarding eating and drinking during the practice, let it help the long term gymnastics training life .
I will say though that doing this does take more time and preparation. I imagine it world be hard for parents who work full time . As such, it would be great to have additional information on fast alternatives. Once your child hits 12, I believe they could take on some of the responsibility and should for that matter, but until then, in a pinch, what are some good options for meals and snacks? Any thoughts on this?
