Paleo Diet for Athletes by Loren Cordain
Paleo Diet for Athletes by Loren Cordain Quantity in Basket: None

The Paleo Diet for Athletes: A Nutritional Formula for Peak Athletic Performance is the newest book from Loren Cordain, PhD, acclaimed nutritionist and Joe Friel, USA Triathlon and cycling elite coach.

Cordain and Friel break away from the practice of advocating loading up on carbohydrates and commercial supplements to enhance athletic performance. The Paleo Diet for Athletes provides a proven program that incorporates all the essential nutrients from a variety of foods that athletes need for total body health. This book shows runners, cyclists, swimmers, triathletes and endurance athletes how they can make simple changes to their diets for big results.

Among the chapters are sections on what to eat before, during and after exercise, and recipes for making Paleo meals using modern foods. We also like Cordain's real-world approach: the 95:5 rule. This means that what you do infrequently will have little negative impact on the favorable effects of what you do most of the time. In other words, it is perfectly acceptable—and pleasurable—if "one or two of the 20 meals you eat a week includes any food you want, as long as lean meats, seafood, fruits, vegetables, healthful oils, and nuts and seeds make up roughly 95 percent of the balance of your weekly calories."

Paperback. Copyright 2005. 300 pages.
