Sport Nutrition for Coaches is designed to be extremely practical in use; negating the need for difficult terminology. The book discusses essential nutritional concepts and provides insight into special situations, which may neccessitate alterations in nutritional planning. The text presents tools to assist in the development and implementation of sports nutrition plans. Sport Nutrition for Coaches contains many relevant examples from the authors' professional background. Leslie Bonci has served as a nutrition consultant for the Pittsburgh Steelers, as well as many other sport and civic organisations. This book also includes information in a variety of tables and forms for coaches to utilise with their teams. In addition, coaches can gauge their learning through a variety of pedagogical aids, including review questions and chapter summaries. Finally, by completing a number of real-life activities, based on the book's content, coaches will be able to create their own Coaches' Notebook, which will help promote healthy nutrition for their athletes throughout the season.
