Food is fuel. Whether you're an athlete, exerciser, or manual laborer, your diet plays an active role in the quality of your physical activity. "Knowing what, how much, and when to eat is relevant not just for elite athletes, but for anyone who is interested in an active lifestyle," writes Eric Sternlicht, Ph.D. Sternlicht is a competitive cyclist; nutrition and exercise consultant to celebrities, athletes, and corporations; and assistant professor of kinesiology at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Fuel Up explains the science and offers guidelines for tailoring your diet to the daily needs of your active lifestyle to get sufficient carbohydrates, protein, fluids, and micronutrients for optimal replenishment and athletic performance.
Sternlicht stresses the importance of carbohydrates, "an athlete's best friend," for high levels of performance and fitness and avoiding lethargy and mood swings. He explains how to vary your protein daily depending on your training level, keep your fat intake at 20 percent, and stay adequately hydrated. He cautions against fad supplements. He also gives training tips for improving fitness and performance. Fuel Up is recommended for athletes, physical laborers, and serious exercisers who want to understand what, when, and how to eat, and the science behind these recommendations. --Joan PriceAbout the Author:
