This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States.
It addresses the key issues relating to sport and exercise nutrition by employing a critical review perspective. Sport and exercise nutrition has been recognised as a major component of any sports science/studies course for many years now. 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.
