Summary

This new edition will help students and practitioners understand the function of the nutrients in the body and how these nutrients affect health and athletic performance. The authors present clear, comprehensive and accurate nutritional information that may be applied to a variety of careers. The text provides students with practical knowledge in exercise and nutrition science and it keeps practitioners on the cutting edge of current research and practices in the field. Using the authors' extensive backgrounds in nutrition, exercise physiology and fitness, the text combines micronutrients into functional groupings to provide an easy framework for understanding how these nutrients can influence exercise performance and good health for both athletes and active individuals. This unique presentation allows readers to fully understand why proper nutrition helps athletes prevent injury, enhance recovery, improve daily workouts and maintain optimal health and body weight. In this second edition, chapters dealing with macronutrients and micronutrients have been entirely rewritten and all chapters have been revised to reflect the latest Dietary Reference Intakes.
