Book Description

30 Jun 2006 Runners World
This newest addition to the heralded "Runner's World" series offers runners up-to-date nutrition advice based on the latest science. Runners have different nutrition and recovery needs than other endurance athletes. Yet until now, they've had no nutritional resource specifically addressing their concerns. This comprehensive guide distills the newest thinking in the science of exercise nutrition into practical, hands-on tips that will help runners stay healthy, recover faster, enjoy better workouts, and race successfully. Here, readers will learn: detailed information on nutritional topics important to runners, from balancing internal energy stores to proper hydration; how to customize their diets to their individual training needs; shopping tips and dining-out strategies to help runners maximize their nutritional intake; the top 5 pre-race meals and top 5 healthiest snacks for runners; and nutritional tips for special populations, including women, children, diabetics, and older runners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have For Runners 5 Sep 2011
By J. Lock
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very useful. It was extremely helpful in explaining what to take, how to take it and when. It also cuts through the marketing lingo and explains the advantages and disadvantages of the different(American) sports drinks, gels etc out there.

The book goes into great detail (well over 200 pages) in explaining what nutrients are key for successful running and is packed with guidelines for choosing the right supplements. It also explains what to eat after running and how to optimize your body compensation. It's a very easy to read book that you will find yourself dipping into time and again. I would recommend this to any runner.
