Overview

Discover the healing and restorative powers of nutrition and exercise
Essential nutrients do more than sustain life; they support the body's ability to withstand deteriorating illness, ailments, and accidents. Medical and athletic professionals understand the relationship between nutrition, exercise, and physical well-being. Now, Judy A. Driskell, Ph.D., R.D., one of the pioneers in the rapidly growing field of sports nutrition, examines and assesses the chemistry, biology and physics of good health.
Sports Nutrition is a vital reference for medical professionals, and a unique and valuable resource for coaches, teachers, trainers and athletes.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael J. Higgins, MEd, ATC, PT (University of Delaware)
Description: This text is a general overview of the importance and purpose of nutrients in the human body. There is some additional emphasis on the importance of nutrition for the physically active individual.
Purpose: This book is intended to be a text for students interested in exercise, nutrition, and health. The author presents the existing research and resulting guidelines/recommendations on the interrelationships among exercise, nutrition, and health.
Audience: The primary audience is college students wanting to know more about nutrition as it relates to exercise and sport.
Features: The author does a good job of breaking the book up into concise chapters and sections on the main nutrients needed for daily living. She address the description of nutrients (energy yielding and micronutrients) in several chapters that are informative and easy to read. Tables and figures clarify and complement the text. The reference section is helpful, but would be more useful if the references were positioned chapter by chapter, rather than at the end of the book. The nutritional guidelines presented are adequate for the general public and the moderately active person, although the nutritional needs of athletes are not addressed.
Assessment: This is a good general text on the different types of nutrients and nutritional needs of the average person for daily activities. In the chapter on body assessment the author provides the reader with a description of many different techniques for assessing body composition. A limitation of the exercise and nutrition chapters, however, is the absence of recommendations on nutrition for the athletic population.

This text examines the important relationship between nutrition, exercise, and health, affirming the long-held view that a healthy diet enhances physical performance. Driskell, who has served in research and teaching positions at numerous universities, begins by briefly reviewing the nutrients and their digestion and absorption. She then describes each nutrient in detail, emphasizing function (particularly as it relates to energy metabolism), food sources, deficiency, pharmacology, toxicity, and health interrelationships. Other topics include energy requirements and the importance of controlling body weight, the role of body composition, and diet and exercise recommendations. Annotation c.
