A comprehensive compilation of applied topics, Nutritional Application s in Exercise and Sport discusses issues related to the life cycle, gr oup specific nutritional concerns of athletes, and the particular spor t of the athlete. It addresses the physically and medically disabled a thlete, athletes addicted to alcohol, tobacco, or marijuana, and those with eating disorders. The book concludes with a discussion of the nu tritional knowledge of athletes. In this latest addition to the Nutrit ion in Exercise and Sport series the editors have taken a different ap proach. The book focuses on the nutritional applications of exercise a nd sport rather than the usual treatment of nutrient-specific metaboli sm. Studies and tables clearly illustrate the concepts and provide qui ck and easy access to the information you need to put theory into prac tice.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Other topics addressed include athletes with physical and mental disabilities, athletes addicted to alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana, and those with eating disorders.
