Simply put, this book seems to focus on people who are exercising to loose weight. It is rife with sections on weight loss, dieting and body image. I was under the impression that this was a guidebook for athletes, not a guide for someone wanting to loose weight at the gym.
I will save the reader much effort by listing Nancy Clark's main points:
1.Your diet should be 65% carbohydrates, 25% fat and 10% protein.
2.Eat before and after exercise to provide fuel and enhance recovery.
3.Start the day with a balanced breakfast
That's about the extent of the information presented. Of course there is some useful information about vitamin/nutritional/glycemic values of certain foods, but this information can easily be found through an internet search. Furthermore, the recipies just aren't that good. I've tried enough of them to start looking elsewhere for meal ideas.
Finally, dietary supplements are given very little attention. No mention of glutamine, creatine, HMB, Medium-Chain Triglycerides etc. This is intolerable for a book on sports nutrition.
In my opinion this book should be called "Fitness Nutrition Guidebook". It is a sports guidebook only in the most limited sense. If you are looking for a book to help you get in shape then I think this will fit the bill. If you are an athlete looking to take your training to the next level then I would look elsewhere.
Nancy Clark's book is practical, easy to understand and it works for me. The recipes in the back of the book are great - even my kids are eating them! This is not the kind of book that you just read once through. The book is packed with information. It is a reference tool. I refer back to it often as I have questions and am working to fine tune my eating.
I heartily recommend Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook!
Revised and updated, Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook, Fifth Edition, provides answers to many of the questions we are so often asked by clients. With the wealth of nutrition advice available to consumers, there is confusion as to what, how and when to eat for optimal health and peak athletic performance. Nancy clears up that confusion by offering sound, sustainable nutrition advice that works! Easy to read and well organized with a great index, so an RD or reader can easily look up a topic and quickly find an answer.
The book is divided into 4 sections: 1) Everyday eating for active people, 2) the science of eating and exercise, 3) balancing weight and activity, and 4) winning recipes for peak performance. The information is invaluable on a broad spectrum, from fitness exerciser to competitive athlete.
The weight management section is helpful for active people who are trying to diet and exercise simultaneously. I counsel fitness exercisers, and competitive athletes struggling with eating disorders. For many of these individuals, changing food beliefs and behaviors is a daunting task. The client success stories Nancy shares have helped my clients move toward a healthier relationship with food and exercise.
You will learn what and how to eat before, during and after exercise events. Family-friendly recipes and meal plans are included to maximize the nutritional benefit from food. The recipes are simple to make, have few ingredients and designed for hungry athletes who are novice cooks.
For those that teach sports nutrition classes, the new 5th edition comes with a free Instructor's Guide The Instructor's Guide includes a chapter-by-chapter overview, objective, teaching points, discussion questions, activities, and quiz questions--plus an image bank for making PowerPoint presentations. These teaching materials are available when ordering the guidebook through the publisher, Human Kinetics, at
As a leader and expert in her field, Nancy uses current research to address some controversial nutrition topics in her new "Fact or Fiction" sections highlighted throughout the book. Supplements, artificial sweeteners and high-fructose corn syrup, are just a few of the many topics covered under these sections.
I have been a dietitian for over 25 years, spending countless hours researching nutrition claims, separating fact from fiction. Nancy has done a fantastic job of putting her years of research, expertise and evidence based advice into one easy to read reference. It's like having Nancy right there with you to ask advice. I am grateful to have such a classic piece to reference and recommend to clients. Thank you Nancy.
supplements versus other cheaper and more effective sources of protein. In discussions about loading up on certain types of foods, such as proteins, the book talks about the role of carbohydrates for fueling muscles. The book is almost five hundred pages long, and I am only discussing a small part of it. For instance, there is a whole chapter just on carbohydrates, there are tons of recipes that you can use based on the types of outcomes you want, and there are
many chapters for specific types of training concerns and self-assessment in terms areas like body fat. This is a
long review, but there is so much material that some topics are not mentioned here. My takeaway is this...
The book is very readable, you can flip to the chapters and topics that you are interested in, the discussion of all the types of foods you have in your diet and their values is encyclopedic, the advice is very, very well documented and there are many pages listing all the references. The book is easy to read, it is well laid out so that you find what you need if you do not want to read the entire book. The book is interesting because it covers many of the fact or fiction
rumors that athletes and people on diets hear. Although for athletes, the book provides a good overview of nutrition for anyone considering rebalancing their diet. Enjoy!
Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook doesn't have a fancy name, but it doesn't really need it. For years, Clark's books have provided sound nutrition advice, information and research for both regularly active individuals and serious athletes. Years ago, my sister did her dietetics residency in Boston at U Mass Hospital, and she shared Clark's second edition book with me. I hung on to it for as long as possible, until she found it in my house months later and snagged it back. Today, as a registered dietitian specializing in sports nutrition, this is also her go-to study and reference book as well. Currently, she is a consultant for a division 1 university sports program, and she also works with clients on an individual basis. To maintain her R.D. and her specialty in sports nutrition, she is required to complete ongoing education and pass various exams. Clark's books are revised regularly, and provide her with essential information.
Still, Clark's writing is easy to understand and follow for the layperson like myself. Clark includes recipes and client examples, as well as little "nuggets" of wisdom. She reviews various well-known diets, comments on surgical options for weight loss, and ranks foods in terms of nutritional value. A wonderful resource.
