Ultimate Sports Nutrition

Frederick A. Harfield, Author, Frederick C. II Hatfield, Author McGraw-Hill Companies $16.95 (208p) ISBN 978-0-8092-4887-2
Hatfield, editor of Sports Fitness magazine and author of Bodybuilding: A Scientific Approach, focuses on sports requiring great strength. But his balanced concept of nutrition for the athlete, whatever the sport, precludes the shortcuts bodybuilders and weightlifters take, which sometimes lead to the use of steroids. The author collects up-to-date information on biochemical responses of the body and shows how athletes can take maximum advantage of them. The long section on amino acids and energy enhancers is especially useful, and the nutritional requirements of some 20 sports are covered more effectively than in other guides. (May)
