In this book, Don Mclaren has bought together many of the key issues in the field, written by recognised experts, to provide an outstanding sports nutrition treatise. The chapters focus on the key areas endemic to any sports nutrition programme.
"This text will remain a heavily used item on my bookshelf as I prepare lecture content and learning aids, assist students in their post graduate research, and even assist my own development of research questions and methodological design. I thoroughly recommend this text for all exercise physiologists, sport and exercise scientists, and utritionists/dieticians."
