Nutrition in Exercise and Sport has been updated and expanded to include the latest developments in the field. This Second Edition of a best-seller among sports nutrition and health professionals now includes a comprehensive introductory chapter on nutrition, exercise, and sport. In addition, new chapters on Olympic athletes, strength athletes, trace elements, amino acids, carbohydrates, and immune function have been added. Top sports nutrition practitioners and exercise scientists have contributed chapters that address protein metabolism issues as well as related nutrition issues surrounding strength versus endurance athletes. It is probably the only scholarly volume to cover the needs of these two different types of athletes within the same text. The book will be an authoritative reference for research scientists in applied sports nutrition, dieticians, exercise physiologists, sports medicine physicians, coaches, trainers, and athletes.
