MAXIMIZE YOUR PERFORMANCE
The Science of Sports Nutrition deals with the link between food
and physical performance. A well-balanced diet helps you perform
better, and regular exercise improves the bodyís ability to utilize the
nutrients from food.
Athletes who train intensely on a daily basis, benefit by knowing
the best food sources and the most appropriate times for consumption.
Recent research suggests that consumption of foods
with the appropriate glycemic index before, during and after exercise
improves performance. Donít forget water for good athletic
performance. Fluid intake is critical before, during and after a
workout or event.
The Performance Fuel Guide will teach you which foods are
best for building lean body mass without additional fat, in conjunction
with proper training.
I'm just starting back to sparring, after 8 months of surgery/rehab, I think I'll try this out. If it works out, I'll go get his new book and see what that is all about.
