Written specifically for these hard-core competitors, this book tells readers what works - and what doesn't - in actual training and races. The author details how to handle extreme environments and reach or maintain a healthy body weight. She also provides specific advice for women and vegetarian athletes. This book shares the experiences of world-class endurance athletes, including two 2000 Olympic Games hopefuls: Karen Smyers, former Hawaii Ironman Champion and ITU World Triathlon Champion, and Keith Brantly, 1996 Olympic marathoner. Included are actual nutrition plans these and other athletes have used, complete with tips on how athletes can apply thes strategies and how to avoid common endurance training and racing mistakes.

"Suzanne Girard Eberle’s book Endurance Sports Nutrition is the most comprehensive book I’ve read on the topic of nutrition for endurance athletes. It is filled with scientific research as well as practical, everyday tips. Everyone from the weekend warrior to the elite endurance athlete could benefit from reading this book. I only wish it had been written before I started running ultramarathons. Unfortunately, I had to learn many of the lessons in this book through trial and error."

"Finally, a comprehensive yet easy-to-understand guide, written by an athlete for athletes. Endurance Sports Nutrition takes the mystery and guesswork out of fueling the ultimate machine—the human body."
Keith Brantly Seven-time USATF national roadracing champion
"Many athletes believe that success in endurance sports is only about training and mental toughness; however, an athlete’s diet is paramount to success and overall health. Suzanne Girard Eberle has created an exhaustive reference for athletes wanting to maximize their performance through sound nutrition. She presents the science behind sports nutrition in a way that is easy to understand and she provides many practical suggestions for food choices. The personal experiences that professional athletes share throughout the book add an important human component to sports nutrition. These athletes are very candid about sharing what did and didn’t work in their events relating to food and sports nutrition products. This book is the sports nutrition bible for endurance athletes."
