Nutrition. It’s a critical component of our clients’ success, yet as fitness professionals we walk a fine line between offering guidance on everyday healthy eating and prescribing nutrition advice that is beyond our scope of practice. In their newly released book Nutrition for Sport, Exercise, and Health, authors Marie A. Spano, Laura J. Kruskall, D. Travis Thomas simplify the complexity of nutrition and untangle the plethora of misinformation. Whether seeking knowledge on the science of nutrition fundamentals or a more specific application of nutrition, the information is easily referenced; the writing clear, concise and approachable; and the case studies, graphics and learning aids far exceed that of any comparable text. Perhaps one of the most impressive texts available on evidence-based nutrition, especially as a resource for fitness professionals, Nutrition for Sport, Exercise, and Health is certainly a timeless resource well worth the investment.
