MM Manore, JL Thompson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


Clinical Sports Nutrition, third edition, is the definitive reference book for sports nutrition professionals, sports medicine practitioners, coaches, trainers and students of sports science. Providing current and comprehensive coverage, the book successfully integrates the science and practice of sports nutrition. The unique format of each chapter combines the viewpoints of two sports nutrition experts: 1. the scientific principles underpinning each issue are reviewed by an internationally recognised nutritionist with extensive research experience; 2. a sports dietitian summarises the practice tips that can be drawn from these principles. The third edition includes the latest information and research in sports nutrition including updates in the position stands and consensus viewpoints from international bodies such as the International Olympic Committee and the American College of Sports Medicine. New contributions include commentaries on the anti-oxidant needs of athletes, the Female Athlete Triad and nutritional strategies to reduce the risk of illness in athletes. Other topics include nutritional assessment of athletes, measuring physique, weight loss and weight making, post-exercise recovery, nutritional strategies before and during competition, iron depletion, micronutrient needs, eating disorders in athletes, supplements and sports foods, and requirements for special athletic populations and environments.
