Review: Clark’s Food Guide for Marathoners

Nancy Clark’ s Food Guide for Marathoners: Tips for Everyday Champions
Nancy Clark

For a while at least, this was the definitive book on nutrition for endurance athletes. We’ve come a long way from the days of eat a ton of pasta the night before the race. Here, Clark discusses the timing of carbo-loading, the importance of protein (a much debated subject today) and the effects of periodizing your diet to match your training while focusing on getting enough sleep.  While this book is no longer cutting edge, it certainly gives one a good grounding in the nutrition of endurance events.

Recommended for the enthusiast.
