It is particularly important for athletes to consume the right nutrients at the right time. This will allow them to get the most from their training and ensure that their body recovers properly after exercising. This book is a gold mine of information for professional as well as recreational athletes. The first part is a description of what food does to your body and why athletes need specific types of nutrients.
