Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm disappointed.

This was my course book for my holistic nutrition program, but it's completely unholistic.

Nobody needs such a high carb diet, even though they are marathon runners, especially if the carb calories come from sugar and fruit juice.

The nutrition advice is way backward and needs some update. It's way too quantitative and pays too little attention to the quality or micronutrient contents of foods. Far too many other textbooks do a better job at describing sports nutrition biochemistry and supplements, and as a source of info for athletes this book sucks.

Best Book and a Must (Want to Equip with Knowledge) April 11 2008
By Amit Dhabalia - Published on
Format: Paperback
This the best book on sports nutrition I have read so far. this book is for those who want to equip themselves with knowledge and get the best out of their physique.
This book has amazing tells us what to eat ...when to to eat (recipes)...tells you which latest supplements that work and without promoting any brand......the book seems to be clean as it seems not to have funded by any supplement manufacturer...
It is a must for those who have partial or no knowledge about nutrition.....It is a also good learning once again for those who have very good knowledge....
Amazing and a must.....

Nothing New. Oct. 3 2004
By Augustin A. Rodriguez - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had high hopes for this book having something new to offer. I've read a lot of books on the subject and found nothing new that can't be found on the internet for free. The author is also from Europe and her constant reference to kg vs. lbs. is somewhat annoying. Not her fault mind you, just annoying for American readers.

I am not saying that the author's book is bad, just the same old information that's been around for years. If you're serious about sports nutrition I suggest you read Sports & Exercise Nutrition by William D. McArdle. Its a college textbook that offers a strong insight into nutrition.

Some may find the book too technical, but how else can you understand the science behind such a scientific topic.

Good luck.
