  1. How in-depth do you go with vegan and vegetarian nutrition for athletes? Do you discuss the topic of protein for this population?

    • Hi Karin,
      Yes, I do address vegetarian and vegan nutrition. The book is not dedicated to that topic, but it can help you figure out how much protein (and other nutrients) you need and how to get it through plant sources.

  2. Is the teacher’s guide separate?

  3. Hello,
    is your book available in any Canadian stores?

    • Yes, the book should be in Canadian bookstores. If not, it is on amazon.com and the Human Kinetics website.
      Thanks for asking!

    • The publisher, Human Kinetics, sells books in Canada, so I trust my book is in your bookstores.
