What we eat has a huge impact on our physical and mental health, and on our performance in our chosen sport, whether we're elite-level athletes or enthusiastic amateurs. But, with so much information out there, how do we choose a way of eating that is right for us?
More Fuel You is a clear and authoritative guide to making the most of your nutrition. Leading sports dietitian Renee McGregor looks at fuelling needs for sporting participation, training and competition, and analyses some popular diet options, including low-carbohydrate, vegan and intermittent fasting.
But this is not just another sports nutrition book. Renee recommends a holistic view: by understanding the human body and being self-aware, you can find the ideal nutritional approach for you personally. Significantly, Renee also discusses areas of sports nutrition in populations that are often overlooked, including women's health and the menopause, healthy ageing, and the inclusion of individuals who don't necessarily conform to the stereotype of an athlete, such as people living with chronic health conditions.
Whatever your race, genetics, gender, age, socio-economic status, body type or ability, it's important to be your own athlete, fuel appropriately for your body and enjoy what you do.
Whether you're a world-class or real-world athlete, if you're serious about sport and nutrition, you can't afford not to read this book.
