Overview

Albert Einstein is said to have defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. While Einstein may not have played soccer, his quote describes far too many young players. Regardless of the outcome, many players prepare for a match the same way, day after day. Eating the same foods over and over, expecting a different result - the definition of nutritional insanity.

The SCIENCE Behind Soccer Nutrition gives you the "whys" about diet and performance and provides a broad set of guidelines for eating a solid diet. The objective is for you to develop your individual nutritional strategy for maximizing performance. The Diet and Training Journal is a bit different. It is designed as a tool, as a way to promote changes in nutritional habits that will instill a solid diet. In short, this journal encourages you to examine how you prepare for a match and to take ownership of your diet and training. By recording and reflecting on nutritional selections and performance, you will be able to raise your game to the next level.
