Whether you are a novice or experienced marathon runner (or walker) of any age or ability, you'll rave about Nancy Clark's Food Guide for Marathoners: Tips for Everyday Champions (2011). The information can help you learn how to fuel for training as well as the 26.2 mile event itself. The easy-to-read, "how-to" book includes the latest information on carbohydrates, carbo-loading, protein, fluids, sports drinks, fueling for long runs, and weight management - to say nothing of additional wisdom on how to manage to eat well, even if you eat on-the-run and rarely cook.

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

  • What to eat before, during, and after long runs, including the marathon itself. (Triathlon training tips included.)
  • How to lose weight and have energy to train hard.
  • How to fuel well on a daily basis--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. You'll learn what, when, and how to eat so you 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.

Food Guide for Marathoners 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.
