Nutrition before, during and after training or a sporting event can improve the comfort, energy and performance of athletes of all levels, from elite to recreational, as well as providing long-term health benefits. Nutrition for Sport, Exercise and Performance offers a clear, practical and accessible guide to the fundamentals of sport and exercise nutrition.

This fully updated new edition provides an evidence-based introduction to nutrition for sport, exercise and performance covering introductory concepts in physiology, metabolism, nutrients and food to equip readers with the scientific background necessary to understand complex topics in sports nutrition.

Nutrition for Sport, Exercise and Performance goes on to cover applied nutrition considerations for specific groups of athletes, and strategies for sports nutrition in practice. The book has been designed to support undergraduate nutrition and sports science students and inclusion of global content makes it relevant to an international market. The clear presentation and strategic design of the book makes it accessible to athletes and other sports professionals. It will also appeal broadly to readers interested in improving their own health and fitness through evidence-based nutrition strategies and will be core reading and reference for undergraduates in the area of sport nutrition, practicing nutritionists and trainers.
