Eating for Endurance

Ellen Coleman revisits the primary concerns of the book, the fuel the body needs for stamina and endurance. She shows how best to adjust diet and eating habits for both good health and optimal performance. Eating For Endurance provides the latest information on carbohydrate-loading, fat as fuel, and the role of protein, vitamins, and minerals while exploding a few myths about each. Caffeine and sugar are examined based on recent research and the critical role of hydration is explored and expanded. More people than ever are participating in or organized sports or their own regimen of activity or exercise. Much of this effort requires increased stamina and endurance which make the questions that arise around nutrition and its role are ever more important. First published almost 15 years ago as a guide for thousands who were in need of nutritional guidance as they moved into intense and demanding sports and exercise it has became a standard in the field. The principles of a high-performance diet, weight-control, and the problems of quackery are framed in the clear light of contemporary nutritional research. Specific advice for different levels of fitness and different types of activity reflect the most recent information available.
