Nancy Clark's Food Guide for Marathoners, 2nd Edition
Marathon walkers and runners of all ages and abilities have raved about the first edition of Nancy Clark's Food Guide for Marathoners: Tips for Everyday Champions. Now, they have the opportunity to learn even more about how to fuel for everyday training as well as the 26.2 mile event itself. The new 2011 edition includes the latest information on carbs, protein, fluids, weight management - to say nothing of additional wisdom on how to manage to eat well, even when you are eating on the run.

This quick read is filled with "how to" tips about --

  • What to eat before, during and after a marathon (triathlon training tips included)
  • How to lose weight and have energy to train.
  • How to manage your day-to-day eating--even if you eat on the run.

In this practical, fact-filled nutrition resource for marathoners, Clark combines her personal experiences and professional expertise to teach novice marathoners how to eat well and enhance their energy. They learn what, when, and how to eat so they can enjoy not only the process of training for the marathon but also participating in the marathon itself with energy to spare. This book is written from Clark's passion for teaching everyday champions how to use food to help them achieve their marathon goals.

It is --

  • A nutrition guidebook with chapters to help you with day-to-day eating for high energy.
  • A sports nutrition resource with chapters about how to fuel for strength and stamina.
  • A food book filled with easy ideas for breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners.
  • A source of inspiration to help you enjoy the challenge of marathoning.
