Aims at maximizing performance in a range of endurance sports.

The Paleo Diet for Athletes Summary

The Paleo Diet for Athletes by L. Cordain

When "The Paleo Diet" was published, advocating a return to the diet of our ancestors (high protein, plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables) the book received brilliant reviews from medical and nutritional communities. Jennie Brand-Mill co-author of the bestselling "Glucose Revolution", called it "without a doubt the most nutritious diet on the planet". Now Dr. Cordain joins with USA triathlon and cycling coach Joe Friel to adapt the Paleo diet to the needs of athletes. The authors show: why the typical athletic diet (top-heavy with grains, starches, and refined sugars) is detrimental to recovery, performance, and health; how the glycemic load and acid-base balance impedes performance; and why consumption of starches and simple sugars are only beneficial in the immediate post-exercise period. At every level of competition, "The Paleo Diet for Athletes" can maximize performance in a range of endurance sports.
