Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0139611452, Hardcover)

The Winning Edge is the first nutrition book that's both scientifically sound and practical. In clear layman's language it shows you how the right choice of food can dramatically improve your athletic fitness and performance...and help prevent problems like obesity and heart disease.

Whether you're an athlete or a coach, a weekend jogger or a dieter -- or someone who just wants to become more fit -- you'll find here a total nutrition program to help you achieve your highest goal without endangering your health. Based on the latest scientific research and the most up-to-date nutritional information, this book shows you what combination of nutrients -- fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals -- best prepares you for physical activity and helps you through the activity when you're in the middle of it.

You'll also learn: * why weight control is a major factor in your health and performance * the best ways to lose excess fat * how to take in fewer calories without eating less food * the hazards of food additives * what foods to avoid -- and why * what water can do for your performance * what to eat before you compete * and much more.

With frequently asked questions at the end of each chapter, The Winning Edge provides all the nutritional information you'll ever need, in language that gets straight to the point.
