Sports nutrition is one of the most exciting areas of practice for a dietitian--you get to see "your kids" or "your team" take to the field, track, or golf course and play their hearts out--and you can feel like you helped make that happen. To be good at sports nutrition, you must know more about the body under physical workout conditions (exercise physiology), plus nutrients and how they fuel the body, and sport psychology. This book covers it all as it affects the athlete and to help the sports nutrition counselor have direction. The format is easy to read with questions and answers that follow a topic and build in understanding as it goes.
