This highly researched text teaches interactions between nutrition and exercise concepts and practical applications. Readers receive a strong foundation in the science of exercise nutrition and bioenergetics, plus insight about how the principles work in the real world of human physical activity and sports competition. The text is logically organized with fundamental information about nutrient digestion, absorption and assimilation presented first, followed by how nutrients provide energy to the body.
