This text was developed to help you learn about the exciting area of sport nutrition. It emphasizes the integration of nutrition and exercise physiology principles, the scientific basis for sports nutrition recommendations and the practical application of the recommendations. As a professional working with athletes or as an athlete yourself, you need to be confident in a nutrition plan that will support training and improve performance. Information about dietary supplements is found in nearly every chapter and students are encouraged to use critical thinking skills to determine if a supplement is legal, ethical, safe and effective based on current scientific information. Numerous examples are used throughout the text to show how results of scientific studies lead to sports nutrition recommendations and to illustrate real-life applications for endurance, "stop-and-go" and strength athletes. The text also devotes one chapter to disordered eating and exercise patterns in athletes.
