This is the kind of reading we love here @TheIronYou, as it underscores all the things we believe in.
If you’re looking for something to read that eventually will help you with your training (and life) well, this is the book for you.
Covering every sport from football and golf to track and field and martial arts, this book addresses the true needs of athletes who are training and competing on a consistent basis.
Nutrition Periodization for Athletes shows you how to gain a competitive edge by using the newest techniques that sports science and research has to offer.
Depending on your sport, your nutrition goals may include losing or gaining weight, decreasing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass, reducing inflammation and free radical production, or improving blood lipids. This "guide" provides athletes with everything they need to understand the concept and implement it during daily training.
Within six chapter the author gives you all the tools to apply the strategy to a variety of sports and no matter what level of athlete you are, the book covers optimal fueling plans for everyone striving for peak health and performance.
The author “immense” knowledge and years of experience working with all types of athletes as a sports dietitian, coach and exercise physiologist are unique.
Also, the fact that Bob Seehobar also practices what he preaches (being an athlete himself) makes the whole process much reletable to us @TheIronYou (where we are our own rat-laboratory).
Even if you don’t consider yourself an athlete (but let me tell you just surviving today’s world makes you an athlete) consider reading this book. At the end, even if you won’t make it to the next Olympic games, you’ll probably be left with a better understanding of how your body works and what are its need.
