It’s an undisputed fact that the body’s physiological needs change as you age. But that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to compete and perform at your best. In High-Performance Nutrition for Masters Athletes, you’ll find practical advice for fueling your active lifestyle—now and for decades to come.

The key to effectively adapting your nutrition plans is first understanding how needs change over time and how expected results shift through the decades. Explore the science behind proper fueling for training and competition with the current guidelines for carbohydrate, protein, and fat intake plus advice on proper hydration, avoiding the dangers of underfueling, and nutrition for optimal recovery.

High-Performance Nutrition for Masters Athletes will then take you inside the fueling strategies for precompetition, competition, and recovery:
  • Gain an understanding of the need for different types or amounts of nutrients at different times and get easy-to-follow guidance on how to meet those needs.
  • Learn how to energize with carbohydrate, build muscle with protein, and meet your hydration needs for optimal athletic performance.
  • Know the role vitamins, minerals, and supplements can play in a nutrition plan and how devastating underfueling can be to athletic performance.
  • Understand how chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease affect nutritional needs.
  • Use the sample meal plans to help customize meals and snacks and reset eating habits to meet the needs of training and competition.
Plus, throughout the book you will find accounts of amazing individuals—both well-known elite athletes and Olympians and everyday athletes—who have adapted their nutrition and training regimes to stay at the top of their game year in and year out.

Comprehensive yet practical, High-Performance Nutrition for Masters Athletes provides the latest research, guidance, and strategies that you need to train harder, perform stronger, and recover faster. Fuel smart, and never let age slow you down.
