  • An introductory overview of the role of nutrition in human health
  • Various types of physical exercises, including cardiovascular training, resistance training, aerobic and anaerobic exercise, bioenergetics, and energy balance. This section also covers the nutritional requirements associated with various fitness programs, as well as exercise and nutritional requirements in special populations, including the pre-pubertal, young, elderly, and disabled.
  • Sports and nutritional requirements.
  • The molecular mechanisms involved in muscle building
  • A thorough review of various food, minerals, supplements, phytochemicals, amino acids, transition metals, small molecules and other ergogenic agents that have been implicated in muscle building and human performance

This book is an ideal resource for nutritionists, dietitians, exercise physiologists, health practitioners, researchers, students, athletes, trainers, and all those who wish to broaden their knowledge of nutrition and its role in human performance.

  • Discusses the impact of nutrition, including food, minerals, vitamins, hormones, trace elements, etc., that can significantly attenuate/improve human performance and sports

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book is detailed and informative without being wordy, and sections can be read out of chronological order. It is filled with helpful figures and tables to highlight important concepts…This is a comprehensive and well-supported book on sport and nutrition. It is easy to read, while providing the audience with good information to implement in the practice setting." Rating: 5 Stars--Doody.com, February 21, 2014

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erik H VanIterson, M.S., M.Bio(University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology)
Description: This is a broad overview of the relationship between nutrition and various types of supplementation and specific types of exercise training. In addition, because the bioenergetic pathways differ between aerobic and anaerobic exercise, the book provides a good mechanistic description of these separate systems throughout.
Purpose: The objective is to provide a general understanding of how bioenergetics is specifically affected by the type of sport training as well as what is put into the body. These relationships are important to understand because performance is affected by their interrelated effects.
Audience: The intended audience includes those with a background in the exercise sciences and a familiarity with sport nutrition in the fields of athletic training, coaching, physiotherapy, and personal training. Because this is an overview, it assumes readers have a strong background in physiology.
Features: The book is detailed and informative without being wordy, and sections can be read out of chronological order. It is filled with helpful figures and tables to highlight important concepts. All information is supported by peer-reviewed literature from historical and current research studies.
Assessment: This is a comprehensive and well-supported book on sport and nutrition. It is easy to read, while providing the audience with good information to implement in the practice setting. Readers should use this as a jumping-off point to further investigate specific relationships between aerobic and anaerobic exercise and sport supplementation.
