What you eat and when you eat it can have a significant effect on your overall performance; the guide has been split into three sections to help readers understand how to use food and fuel in different ways at different times to help meet their goals. The first section focuses on what to eat in preparation for training and racing, the second on what to eat and drink during an event to maintain energy and hydration levels and the final sections look at foods to use after exercise to speed up recovery.
From nutritional products to health foods, the Complete Guide to Nutrition examines the different claims and looks at how to effectively fuel training and recovery.
