Summary Food and Fitness enables readers to evaluate the claims made about different diets and types of exercise, in order to select the combination most suited to their needs. Organized alphabetically, with a thematic index, the dictionary provides instant access to information on a wide range of topics - from how to perform Bilig's exercise or the Illinois Agility Run correctly, to explaining what Chinese restaurant syndrome is, or why high protein diets are potentially dangerous. Subjects covered include sports, diets, disease and illness, illustrated exercises, training methods and principles, and injuries and how to treat them
