Synopsis: In NUTRITION FOR SPORT, Dr Steve Wootton provides a practical guide to the subject. Theoretical principles are outlined but always related to healthy eating, competition and exercise for the amateur as well as the top professional. High carbohydrate diets, fluid intake, weight control, vitamins, minerals and supplements are all evaluated and there is a stimulating question and answer section and an invaluable glossary. One of the outstanding features of the book is the way Dr Wootton explains the theoretical principles underlying diet and performance. He also links this specialist knowledge with 'healthy eating' for living. Dr Wootton explains how food is used by the body and provides advice on eating and diet for exercise. He also stresses the importance of eating for training and the need for a sensible approach to preparation for competition. In so doing, he explodes many of the myths about diet which are prevalent among performers.
From Library Journal:
Both books cover nutrition in relationship to lifestyles, exercise habits, and personal characteristics. Coleman's approach to nutrition and its influence on endurance and personal health is concise and to the point. She discusses basic concepts of oxygen usage, obtaining fuel from food, and meeting nutritional needs. Her sections on carbohydrate loading, caffeine usage, and weight loss are informative and valuable. An excellent book for the layperson who wants to understand the relationship between eating and personal health, and for the athlete who wants to optimize endurance performance. Wooton covers basically the same topics but in greater depth and with scientific documentation. Her chapters on converting food to energy and energy to muscular activity are technical and probably beyond the casual reader. An excellent resource on nutrition with informative charts and glossary, this superior book should be required reading for every athlete and coach. Kenneth Tillman, Trenton St. Coll., N.J.
