Nutrition for Combat Sports is a mix-and-match nutritional manual detailing what to eat after specific sessions, using, simple convenient recipes to guide athletes' food choices. Eating specifically is an athlete's most effective weapon in the fight for fitness. An athlete simply needs to know what types of training need what servings of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. The intensity, duration and type of training all play their part, as well as a fighter's body weight and goals. A food-lover, however, wants to know what flavours and textures will excite their senses. This book gives you culinary artistry as much as it gives you scientific knowledge and practical advice.
Topics covered include:
- Nutrition for endurance
- Nutrition for strength
- Combining carbs, protein and vegetables
- Salsa and sauces

" Overall, this book translates the scientific information into practical examples that athletes and practitioners can use to inform their training, and ultimately put tasty food on the plate that will support their training goals. 'Dr Neil Clarke, Coventry University' "
