Nutrition for Elite Athletes by Eric S. Rawson (Editor); Stella Lucia Volpe (Editor)In order to achieve and maintain peak performance, high-level athletes require the right nutrition at the right time. Nutrition for Elite Athletesprovides a comprehensive overview of the latest research on the nutritional requirements of athletes at the top of their game.

In addition to coverage of recovery nutrition and energy balance, the book: Reviews the foundations of energy metabolism Considers dietary supplements, food safety, and drug/nutrient/exercise interactions Examines hydration requirements for various types of athletes Explores how vitamins and minerals impact performance The book assumes an understanding of the terms discussed in introductory nutrition courses as well as an understanding of metabolic systems concepts taught in undergraduate nutrition and exercise physiology courses.
