  • Information


Nutrition for Sport, Exercise, and Performance offers a clear, practical, and accessible guide to building a comprehensive understanding of sport and exercise nutrition from leading experts in nutrition and exercise science.

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.

As such, nutrition is a key element of an athlete’s health and performance strategy, whether competing recreationally or at an elite level. Split into three parts, this new and revised edition of Nutrition for Sport, Exercise, and Performance provides an evidence-based introduction to nutrition for sport, exercise, and performance.

Part I focusses on nutrition and sport science by explaining key principles underpinning sports nutrition science, including energy systems, exercise physiology and metabolism, and the digestion and absorption of macronutrients and micronutrients essential for performance and discusses factors influencing dietary intake, energy availability, and the process of dietary assessment.

Part II is focussed on nutrition for exercise, pre- and post-training, hydration, supplements, and body composition measurement and modification.

The final part (Part III) focusses on applied sports nutrition for a range of sports and athletes.

This second edition delivers new insights into working with female athletes, occupational athletes, and athletes in contemporary sports including sport climbing, surfing, skateboarding, and breaking. Featuring contributions from a range of sport and exercise nutrition professionals with practical sports nutrition strategies and the latest evidence and practice guidelines, this is a core reference for undergraduate students, sports professionals, and aspiring athletes alike.
