Nutrition for Sport and Exercise
Insightful, well organized, and clearly written, Nutrition for Sport and Exercise integrates nutrition and exercise physiology principles, emphasizing scientific reasoning and examining research studies to illuminate the evidence for current nutritional recommendations. Dunford and Doyle carefully illustrate the links between training, the increased demand for nutrients as a result of training, the translation of nutrient goals to the intake of an appropriate amount and type of foods, beverages and/or supplements, and, the ultimate goal, excellent performance. The book focuses on critical thinking as it provides students with the tools they need to make good decisions regarding their own training, nutrition, and performance, to prepare them as practicing professionals to guide the decisions of others. The book includes numerous examples and practical applications.
