Great book detailing bodies energy pathways. The first 2/3 of the book was well laid out explanation of how the body makes energy. Easy reading and lovely model that gels well with my own experiences.

The last 1/3 of the book is a bunch of sample diets. I haven't dug into them.

My previous sports nutrition book was published in 1986. No contradictions but the new book is much better written and goes into much more detail.

I think if you read and understand the first 2/3 of this book you can design a good diet for yourself, and learn to feed yourself for endurance racing.

For those who don't know, Dr. Benardot isn't just some guy with a fancy degree. He has worked with Olympians for, well, decades. His approach to nutrition is not just based on the best science has to offer, it is also based on what delivers a real-world world class performance while maintaining and even improving athlete health.

Fortunately for the rest of us, the approach taken in this book helps us all learn exactly how our bodies work so that we, too, can get exactly what we want from our diets! There is as much detail as anyone could want, while still containing a condensed "here's what to do" segment for every goal. You'll get the low-down on just about every supplement and "ergogenic aid" there is, as well as a specific breakdown of all major sports so that you know exactly what you need based on what you do.

You'll also get exposed to important ideas that you won't see anywhere else, such as dynamic energy balance. Forget about getting your calories for the day, and learn why getting the calories you need WHEN YOU NEED THEM is going to make you stronger, leaner, and better at what you do every day.

Don't go buy a book written by a fancy blog owner, do yourself a favor and learn from the cream of the crop: Buy this book today. You'll thank Dr. Benardot (and maybe me) tomorrow.

The author does not blindly believes in every new scientific research outcome which is wise and balanced. He presents every source of his writings, so you can go deeper in the research and also he aggregates data from several research on almost every sports and bring a valuable conclusion about nutrition strategy. The latest chapters brings sometimes repetitive data from previous chapters, but is not that boring to avoid the 5 stars.
I highly recommend this book, not only for high-end athletes but mostly for those who do not have a coach and want to boost their athletic performance and want to eat natural food at right amount and time.

First and foremost, this exceptional book is not a "one stop reference"; thats an idea that people often look for in a book, that probably doesn't really exist. Quality books should be added to your library, taken for what they are and what they offer, and compared to other similar books to create a bigger picture or understanding as it applies to you...there is no single perfect "way" when it comes to nutrition, much like training for your chosen sport. This book is no exception, it is well researched and exceptionally useful, written by an author that applies what he knows to Olympic athletes. As a strength athlete most interested in powerlifting and strongman types of lifting and competition, the chapters referring to this type of training directly are limited and mostly bunched up with wrestlers, etc. under "power athletes", so it isn't exactly what I was looking for, but it still fits the bill in alot of ways as the info is there just not set out by itself under that title. Advanced Sports Nutrition covers a broad range of sports and has tons of useful information on everything nutrition that can be useful to just about anyone. It covers alot of unique as well as general topics. Join it up with a few more books like Nutrition Almanac and you'll be on your way to having whatever you need at your fingertips. This book is worth your time and money, although like myself, you might not realize the extent if its usefulness until you open it up and start putting things together.

This is a great text book on nutrition and hits nearly every angle of the nutrition plan. At times it is a bit much to absorb, but if you're serious about your education and want to maximize your results then book is well worth the investment. Just don't think of it as a weekend read. It is safer to say, that you should plan on a good six months of reading with periodical follow ups to refresh.

This is a truly wonderful book on the topic of sports nutrition. Very well written and researched, it is scholarly and yet fun to read. We used this as the text book for my sports nutrition class at Bastyr University and I also plan to give this as a Christmas present to the athletes in my life. That's the range of audience this book is able to reach. The author is funny to boot.
