Now widely adopted on courses throughout the world, the prestigious Nutrition Society Textbook series provides students with the scientific basics in nutrition in the context of a systems and disease approach rather than on a nutrient by nutrient basis. In addition books provide a means to enable teachers and students to explore the core principles of nutrition and to apply these throughout their training to foster critical thinking at all times.

This NS Textbook on Sport and Exercise Nutrition has been written to cover the latest information on the science and practice of sport and exercise nutrition. A key concept behind this textbook is that it aims to combine the viewpoints of world leading nutrition experts from both academia/research and a practical stand point. Plus where necessary there are additional practitioner based authors to ensure theory is translated into practice for each chapter in the form of either ‘practice tips' or ‘information sheets' at the end of relevant chapters.

The textbook in essence can be divided into three distinct but integrated parts:

  • Part 1: covers the key components of the science that supports the practice of sport and exercise nutrition including comprehensive reviews on: nutrients both in general and as exercise fuels; exercise physiology; hydration, micronutrients; and supplements.
  • Part 2: moves into focusing on specific nutrition strategies to support different types of training including: resistance; power/sprint; middle distance/speed endurance; endurance; technical/skill, team; and specific competition nutrition needs.
    The unique format of this textbook is that it breaks down nutrition support into training specific as opposed to the traditional sport specific support. This reflects the majority of current sport and exercise requirements of the need to undertake concurrent training and therefore facilitating targeted nutrition support to the different training components through the various macro and micro training cycles.
  • Part 3: explores some of the practical issues encountered in working in the sport and exercise nutrition field and includes key sport related topics such as: disability sport; weight management; eating disorders; bone and gut health; immunity; injury; travel; and special populations and situations.

READERSHIP: Students of nutrition and dietetics at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. All those working in the field of nutrition and related health sciences.

From the Back Cover:

In this new addition to the acclaimed Nutrition Society Textbook Series, Sport and Exercise Nutrition offers the latest information on the science and practice of this exciting area to meet the needs of the contemporary student.

Groundbreaking in their scope and approach, the titles in the series:

  • Provide students with the required scientific basics of nutrition in the context of a systems and health approach
  • Enable teachers and students to explore the core principles of nutrition, to apply these throughout their training, and to foster critical thinking at all times. Throughout, key areas of knowledge are identified
  • Are fully peer reviewed, to ensure completeness and clarity of content, as well as to ensure that each book takes a global perspective

Following the format of the previously acclaimed books in the series,Sport and Exercise Nutrition is an essential purchase for students of sports nutrition and dietetics, and also for those students who major in other subjects that have a nutrition component, such as food science, medicine, pharmacy and nursing. Professionals in nutrition, dietetics, food science, medicine, health sciences and many related areas will also find much of great value within its covers. The book is also a valuable resource and of great relevance to sports scientists and exercise physiologists.

Review:

"This is an excellent resource for readers interested in furthering their understanding of sport and exercise nutrition through a combined scientific and practical approach. It is well organized and does a great job of focusing on the key points, allowing readers to decide to what extent they would like to further their knowledge in a particular subdiscipline." (Doody's, 20 January 2012)
