|INSIDE:||24 colour photographs and 2 diagrams|
In order to maximise their performance in training and in matches, rugby players need to understand the importance of energy and nutrients and their role in the working of the body. It is also important that they make appropriate food choices and that they eat and drink those foods in the correct quantities. This informative book clearly explains which foods and fluids, when consumed in the right amounts at the correct times, will help players perform to the best of their ability.
The author has a wealth of knowledge, not only about what a correct diet can offer players in terms of performance, but also how the relevant advice should be conveyed to them. A strong emphasis is placed on the fact that the rugby player's diet must be both enjoyable and practical, and also fit into his/her lifestyle.
Food for Rugby provides sound dietary advice to young players, as well as to those unfortunate enough to sustain an injury or illness. It also includes useful ideas for meals and sample menus.
