Designed for students and professionals, Practical Applications in Sports Nutrition provides the latest sports nutrition information and dietary practices so you can assist athletes and fitness enthusiasts in achieving their performance goals. This guide not only provides the most current sports nutrition guidelines and research, but also the tools and guidance to apply this information in the real world. In addition, this book teaches the most effective ways to communicate sports nutrition messages to athletes and how to motivate individuals to make permanent behavior changes. The book is divided into two basic sections. The first section provides an introduction to sports nutrition, general nutrition concepts and their relationship to athletic performance, and an overview of nutritional ergogenics. The second section covers the practical applications of this knowledge: consulting; enhancing athletic performance through nutrition; weight management; special populations; and endurance, strength/power, and team athletes.
