[Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook is] the go-to manual for active people to fuel their exercise endeavors With a focus on sports nutrition, youre not focused so much on losing, but on gaining. Youre gaining speed, strength and stamina along with mental acuity and improved wellbeing. Yes, its also a great recipe for fat loss, but the dropping of excess poundage, again, is a side benefit rather than a primary focus. And thats what makes it sustainable. Sports nutrition is about the journey rather than the destination. Diet books come and go, but Nancy Clarks Sports Nutrition Guidebook continues to be the book of choice for those who want to find out what theyre physically capable of [The book] made all the difference for me. I had done reasonably well in my fitness journey, having lost 30 pounds of fat and gained a fair amount of muscle, but around 2003 was when I really wanted to up my game. I wanted to get faster and stronger and leaner. The director of health and fitness programs at the University of Calgary recommended Nancys book to me, and that was the start of changing how I viewed everything to do with food and fueling athletic performance. A decade later Im a muscular Boston Marathon qualifier who can see his abs. Thanks, Nancy.
