Editorial Reviews

Review

Lisa has taken her expertise & knowledge and applied it to football nutrition.  Her comprehensive book is well organized and will enhance your knowledge about football nutrition.  


--L Kaplan, MD, UofM

This is comprehensive but not overwhelming. It is an easy &useful tool to help athletes understand & implement sports nutrition into their own sports life.
 
--H Skolnik, NFL Nutritionist 

I was surprised at how easy it was to understand especially knowing little of nutrition.The eating out guide is great-my son's a fastfood junkie. I recommend this to anyone preparing meals for players - it pays for itself!
--T. Smith, Oklahoma

This book has the kind of grounded information in it that families, coaches and health professionals need who are looking out for the welfare of their athletes. Loaded with lots of great resources and references.
--Dave Ellis, President of CPSDA

Great source for practical ways to properly fuel your body, enhance recovery, and improve body composition and performance. After reading, you will be a step closer at achieving your health and performance goals --T Piattoly- NFL Nutritionist

This lady obviously knows her subject. I bought this for my young grandson and he is slowly coming around to the nutriion side of his chosen sport of football in highschool. His mother even organized weekly pre-game menus along with several other mothers of team members based on some of the information. All the guys show up for it. Maybe I should buy one for the coaching staff.I also found her charts useful, such as BMI's and other stuff. It's written pretty much in laymen's terms but it's a lot to absorb. I'd recommend it to any parent with kids in sports, it could help them get better and have an edge on the other teams.

Format: Paperback
You are what you eat isn't just said to be cute. "Performance Nutrition for Football" discusses how diet proves to be an important edge in the game of football and other sports. Players need to stay fit but emphasize building muscle for speed, power, and athleticism. Drawing on advice from long time NFL veterans, and author Lisa Dorfman's own heavy influences in nutrition, "Performance Nutrition for Football" is a must for any future football hopeful or any future athlete as well.
