I was mostly looking for solutions of what to eat before, during and after a long run, as well as some helpful tips on how many calories I should be eating and how much of those calories should be carbs, fat and protein. This book answered all of my questions. There is a chapter pretty much devoted to each one of these topics, and each topic is visited with just enough detail for someone like myself. Nancy supplements with recipes and other food ideas, and generally gives a lot of helpful tips.
The downside of the book is that I do think it needs a slight update, as the food pyramid and other government recommendations have changed recently.
I definitely recommend this book to any marathoner interested in figuring out their nutritional needs. I have found it very useful in my own training.
