Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an advertising book selling Powerbar brand food bars! They are lauded in every chapter, one of the authors works for that company, and this not at all an "educational book". The authors must have said "Let's see how many ways we can present common facts about food (facts which most people already know, by the way), and then turn the conversation around to the food bar we want to get them to buy". This book should not be sold, it should have "advertising" in bold font on the cover and be given away free, because it is trying to sell you something!

I love this book. It touches on the "popular" nutrition and hydration advice most of us have heard, then provides us with the correct nutrition and hydration information based on current research. But most important, it's easy to read and easy to follow. This book provides you with real information on protein, fat and carbs, as well as specific menu's and recipes, information on sports drinks and energy bars, and a discussion on which supplements are worth the investment vs. just hype. This takes the guess work out of how to properly feed your body for ultimate performance. Whether you are a person who exercises just to stay in shape, or an elite triathlete, you should own this book. This is the best practical guide to sports nutrition I have read. I am going to give it as a gift to my athlete friends. This book is great.

Just as the subtitle suggests - this book really is a comprehensive guide to properly fueling training and competition! It lays out the basics of eating well and brings it to life with tips from professional athletes, an easy to follow meal plan, recipes and shopping lists. It helps to know that the authors are not only registered dietitians but serious athletes that have had to figure out how to fuel their own training. This book is super helpful for me as a dietitian working with groups and fielding sports nutrition questions and personally as a casual athlete. I can't wait to try out some of the recipes. Buy it!
