Feed your adrenaline this winter with Monique Ryan's latest nutritional guidebook. Performance Nutrition for Winter Sports provides the sport-specific nutritional advice that is essential for cross-country and alpine skiers, snowboarders, snowshoe enthusiasts, and hockey players.
You don't have to be competing at the highest levels to benefit from the extra boost that a conscientious diet can provide. And, if you are investing countless training hours in your sport to reach new performance goals, the food you choose will either fuel that ambition or cause you to bonk somewhere along the way.
Each sport places unique demands on the body, and these demands are further complicated by your agenda--recreation, training, competition, or recovery. Whether your sport entails quick bursts of energy, steady activity with periods of faster movement, or sheer stamina over a long period of time, the way that your body fuels the effort will be dramatically different. Monique Ryan, expert nutritionist and health writer, explains the science behind her targeted strategies and forks over a heaping plate of menus and nutritional information to help you find more enjoyment and improved performance on the slopes, in the hills, or on the ice.
