Summary "This book presents nutrition as an integrated part of an athlete's total performance-enhancing package. General nutrition and exercise physiology information are converted into a plan for day-to-day practice for training and competition preparation. It outlines important differences in nutritional needs for different sports, including the timing of food and liquid intake, and the best foods to achieve maximum energy output. Case studies and discussions of typical dietary problems are included, enabling athletes and coaches to tailor a diet uniquely suited to individual needs, including the need for weight gain or loss."--Publisher description
