Dietetics & nutrition; Sports injuries & medicine
This book will be a beginning textbook in sports nutrition. As sports nutrition evolves as a subdiscipline of nutrition and exercise science becomes more sophisticated, this course will be offered as a core course in both curricula. In addition, students in dietetics, physical education and coaching, and sports medicine might take the course as an elective. Written by an author who has taught the course for over a decade, this book should become the standard in the field.
