This is a new book written to help wrestlers on all levels achieve their best by competing as close to their minimum natural weight (and proper weight class) without compromising their health, and get the full benefits of the sport of wrestling. Advantages of this book include its completeness and easy readability, with important "take home" messages highlighted. While written for the wrestler, it also keeps the coaches’, parents', trainer's and team physician's perspectives in mind. It teaches how proper weight management is much better than "cutting weight", how to get the right calories and nutrients from the right sources, how conditioning and training apply to proper weight management, and how to avoid lifestyle mistakes that can hurt performance. Also, it is intended to help wrestlers learn healthy lifestyle and eating habits that will benefit them long after they have stopped competing. Other aspects of health and wrestling are addressed in the Bonus Section, which covers topics like skin care, guidelines for parents, when to use heat and cold for injuries, cauliflower ear, illness prevention, wrestling room sanitation, and other topics.

While coaching during the 2001-2003 seasons, several wrestlers asked Dr. Rizzo general and specific questions regarding diet, nutrition, supplements and weight control. He found an excellent educational brochure published in 1991 by the Quaker Oats Company, the makers of Gatorade®. This brochure was notable for, among other things, the format and content being geared in a clear, easy-to-understand format for high school wrestlers. This gave Dr. Rizzo the idea to create a manuscript with similar content, but with updated nutritional information from more current research, and additional sections on topics like supplements and hydration guidelines. He distributed this among wrestlers, and found a better-than-expected response, with two of the wrestler’s moms actually taking the manuscript to the grocery store and referring to it as they did their shopping!
Over the next one and one half seasons, he continually added to the manuscript to the point where it needed to be bound for effective use. Also, being a big advocate of patient education in his own private practice, he found himself giving out patient information materials on specific injuries and skin conditions to affected wrestlers. He found some of these innately inadequate, and re-wrote a number of them with more thorough information, and more relevance to the sport of wrestling. After compiling a number of these, he added them to the manuscript as an added "Bonus Section" on common skin conditions and injuries in the sport of wrestling.From the Inside Flap:
