About

Overview

Insightful, well-organized, and clearly written, NUTRITION FOR SPORT AND EXERCISE, 2nd Edition integrates nutrition and exercise physiology principles, emphasizing scientific reasoning and examining research studies to illuminate the evidence for current nutritional recommendations. The authors carefully illustrate the connections between exercise, nutrition, and, the ultimate goals--optimal performance and health. In addition to explaining the rationale behind the recommendations made to athletes, this text helps instructors and students translate these recommendations to specific plans for the appropriate amount and type of foods, beverages, and/or supplements to support training, performance, and recovery. First and foremost, this book is scientifically sound and evidence-based, but it also is filled with practical nutrition information to demonstrate the application of the material.

Features and Benefits

  • Emphasizes the scientific basis for sports nutrition recommendations. Uses current research studies of trained athletes to help students interpret and apply scientific data.
  • Integrates nutrition and exercise physiology by explaining basic physiology principles, the physiological responses and adaptations the body has to exercise training and the effects of training on nutritional requirements.
  • Provides scientific and practical information about the use of dietary supplements to enhance training and improve performance. Addresses the legality, ethics, safety and effectiveness of a variety of supplements popular with athletes.
  • Emphasizes the development of a comprehensive nutrition plan (i.e. nutrition periodization) to meet the individual needs of athletes in training. Illustrates the translation of broad nutritional recommendations and guidelines to specific foods, beverages, snacks and meals with practical, real-life examples for many different sports.
  • Two chapters are devoted to the topic of energy to explore difficult concepts in detail, giving students more time to grasp this fundamental information.
  • Adopts a holistic approach based on function for the key nutrients carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and water.
  • Includes chapters on diet planning, disordered eating and exercise patterns in athletes, and lifelong fitness and health, so that these topics can be covered in more depth.
  • Special features in each chapter include: Internet café (websites offering sound sports nutrition information); Keeping it in perspective (how each topic fits into the big picture); and Spotlight on (additional coverage of supplements and other topics and examples of real-life athletes). Pre- and Post-Test quizzes, Self-Test chapter questions, summaries, references, and glossary included.

Author Bio

Marie Dunford

MARIE DUNFORD, Ph.D., R.D., has been involved in sports nutrition since the mid-1980s. In 1985, while a faculty member at California State University, Fresno, she created the curriculum for an upper-division course entitled "Nutrition and the Athlete." She taught the course for a total of 16 years, during which time she interacted with thousands of student athletes. This direct exposure to nutrition and exercise science majors and NCAA Division I athletes helped her to develop an understanding of how students learn and the sports nutrition topics that are the most difficult for students to master. In addition to this textbook, Dr. Dunford has written three other books and numerous online sports nutrition courses for nutrition and exercise professionals. She is an active member of SCAN—the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutritionists—a dietetic practice group of the American Dietetic Association, and a member of the American College of Sports Medicine. She is an avid recreational tennis player and a struggling student of French.
