Insightful, well-organized, and clearly written, NUTRITION FOR SPORT AND EXERCISE, 2nd Edition integrates nutrition and exercise physiology principles, emphasizing scientific reasoning and examining research studies to illuminate the evidence for current nutritional recommendations. In addition, the text helps you translate these nutrition recommendations to specific plans for the appropriate amount and type of foods, beverages, and/or supplements to support training, performance, and recovery. The authors carefully illustrate the links between exercise, nutrition, and, the ultimate goals, optimal performance and health.
"Objectives are clearly defined and organized in a logical as well as practical format that should be easy for students to grasp. . . . Sidebars and text boxes are useful and easily lend themselves to discussion beyond factual material, moving towards application of major concepts."
"I think these first three chapters are better written, better organized, and set a better stage for the rest of the information presented in the book, when compared to our current text. . . . Great concepts and ideas, some great new concepts not presented in other texts, well suited for undergraduate students."
"All the chapters [I reviewed] were great. The primary strength is that it melds the current research and recommendations with practical considerations for feeding athletes. The depth and breadth seem to be appropriate and the instructor should be able to elaborate if necessary. I also liked the frankness in situations of athletes' nutritional practices."
"Excellent objectives-particularly the application to non-athletes exercising for health and/or weight loss. The emphasis on science and critical thinking is very important; as the authors state, practitioners in this field need to be able to sift through a lot of new claims and fads. To do this, they will need a solid understanding of the underlying science and practice evaluating scientific claims. . . . This textbook is an excellent guide to the real world of athletes and people who strive for healthy living and the environment that compels their dietary practices, with emphasis on strategies for improvement and consequences of sub-optimal nutritional practices."

MARIE DUNFORD, Ph.D., R.D., has been involved in sports nutrition since the mid-1980s. In 1985, while a faculty member at California State University, Fresno, she created the curriculum for an upper-division course entitled "Nutrition and the Athlete." She taught the course for a total of 16 years, during which time she interacted with thousands of student athletes. This direct exposure to nutrition and exercise science majors and NCAA Division I athletes helped her to develop an understanding of how students learn and the sports nutrition topics that are the most difficult for students to master. In addition to this textbook, Dr. Dunford has written three other books and numerous online sports nutrition courses for nutrition and exercise professionals. She is an active member of SCAN--the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Nutritionists--a dietetic practice group of the American Dietetic Association, and a member of the American College of Sports Medicine. She is an avid recreational tennis player and a struggling student of French.
J. ANDREW DOYLE, Ph.D., FACSM, is an Associate Professor of Exercise Physiology and the Director of the Applied Physiology Laboratory in the Department of Kinesiology and Health at Georgia State University, where he formerly served as the Department Chair. He received a B.S. in Zoology from Clemson University, an M.S. in Exercise Science from Georgia State University, and his doctorate in Exercise Physiology from the Ohio State University. He has taught exercise physiology, exercise testing and fitness assessment, and exercise programming at the undergraduate and graduate level for over 20 years. His research interests include carbohydrate metabolism and exercise and the role of physical activity, exercise, and fitness in health. He has conducted, published, and presented numerous research studies with cyclists, runners, and triathletes, and has extensive experience testing elite athletes from cycling, running, gymnastics, rowing, canoe and kayak, and basketball. Dr. Doyle is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine.
