Summary
Everywhere we turn, someone is preaching the “One True Way” to eat for maximum health. Paleo Diet advocates tell us that all foods less than 12,000 years old are the enemy. Low-carb gurus demonize carbs, then there are the low-fat prophets. But they agree on one thing: there is only one true way to eat for maximum health. The first clue that that is a fallacy is the sheer variety of diets advocated. Indeed, while all of these competing views claim to be backed by “science,” a good look at actual nutritional science itself suggests that it is impossible to identify a single best way to eat. Fitzgerald advocates an agnostic, rational approach to eating habits, based on one's own habits, lifestyle, and genetics/body type. Many professional athletes already practice this “Good Enough” diet, and now we can too and ditch the brainwashing of these diet cults for good.
Packed with plans for short, long, ultraendurance, and multiday events, Endurance Sports Nutrition, Third Edition, focuses on the nutrition needs of endurance athletes, including runners, cyclists, open-water swimmers, and triathletes. Included are strategies that top endurance athletes have used to reach the pinnacle of success in their sports.
This two-part program aims to educate students about the nutrients required for optimal growth and development across the lifespan. It will explore patterns of physical development during prenatal development through to late adulthood and the nutrients required to support both growth and maintenance of the human body. Program one will examine the nutrient needs in pregnancy, infancy and childhood.
During adulthood, with the exception of when a female is pregnant, physical growth stops and our bodies enter a maintenance stage that continues until our last days. This program explores the complex range of nutrients required during our adolescence/youth and adulthood.
