2.0 out of 5 stars A very basic nutrition book 7 Feb 2001
This book is a good first stop for nutrition advice, but really won't give you any detail or competitive advantage. It could have been written 10 years ago, there is no up to date research at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars carbing up vs weight loss 8 Oct 2010
By fattie
Trying to lose weight by exercising but need to carb up to complete the event?
this book explained why I hit the wall during events and then binge ate afterward. i can now plan my pre-race eating and enjoy the event without guilt - and still lose weight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great information for all levels of endurance athletes! 2 Jun 2000
By dale - Published on Amazon.com
I thought this book would be too technical for me, the non-elite endurance runner, but I was wrong. Not to say there isn't information that would help the elite athlete - there is - but I was bowled over by the easy-to-read, no-nonsense, useful suggestions on how to go the distance. (In fact, I learned as much from the "other" endurance sports as I did from the running sections. Want to run a marathon? Check out the information from the RAM cycling section...the info there applies perfectly! ) Also, GREAT athlete interviews and case studies. This is a must-read for the budding or elite athlete or any coach or advisor. You'll find yourself going back to it over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent training resource 13 Sep 2000
By Kate D - Published on Amazon.com
this author knows her stuff. this is a good, very up-to-date handbook for the serious endurance athlete (and for the serious weekend warrior!). as a former pro triathlete, and still a hack marathoner, i had not read a sports nutrition book in several years. for me, this book was a great refresher, and also a reminder of the importance of proper diet in a high performance lifestyle. highly recommended for people who are active and either already performing at a high level, or training to improve their performance. runners, skiers, hikers, cyclists, triathletes, etc. will find relevant, sport-specific info, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for high performance endurance athletes! 26 Jun 2000
By Patti Steinmuller, MS, RD - Published on Amazon.com
Sports nutrition encompasses scientific research, food and fluid recommendations, and practical applications for training and competition. Designed for endurance athletes-this book has it all! Combining the latest scientific findings, sport nutrition guidance, and practical fueling strategies of elite endurance athletes makes this book excel. Learning how highly competitive athletes apply sport nutrition recommendations is especially valuable. This book is well organized, engaging to read, and targeted for high level athletic performance. I teach sports nutrition online at Montana State University and definitely recommend this book to my students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Secret Weapon 18 April 2007
By David A. Claflin - Published on Amazon.com
I am in my mid-40s and have toyed with the idea of doing a triathlon for quite some time. Somehow, when I would begin to really get the training ramped up, I would run in to a problem. I believe that I was probably bringing on the problems with less than ideal nutrition. So, though I harbor no aspirations of being a serious athlete, I have found that nutrition is an important--and often overlooked--aspect for even recreational athletes like me. Using the information in this book is allowing me to push my training farther than I ever have before and will get me across the finish line for my first triathlon sometime this summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Right Stuff for Endurance Athletes 3 April 2007
By Annie B. Kay - Published on Amazon.com
I practice & teach yoga. Sometimes I take nice long hikes. I'm also a dietitian. But until I read Suzanne Eberle's 2nd edition of Endurance Sports Nutrition, I never fully appreciated just how different life is, nutritionally, for endurance athletes. And who could better tell us about it and how to eat to maximize training, racing, recovery and good health than an elite runner and sports dietitian?

If you are a long distance runner, biker, triathelete or participate in another seemingly impossible endurance challenge, please do your loved ones a favor and pick up this book. It is highly detailed and filled with personal stories from elite athletes on how they balance the body-punishing aspects of their sports with conscious nutrition to refuel, rebuild and sustain.

Any athlete will find something here that will bolster their success.
