Synopsis:

In The Athlete?s Fix, sports nutritionist and pro triathlete Pip Taylor lays out a sensible step-by-step program to find the foods that make athletes feel and perform their best. She helps athletes navigate confusing and conflicting information about food allergies like celiac disease and lactose intolerance and also popular elimination diets like Paleo, Dukan, Dash, and detox.

Endurance sports stress the body, often worsening mild food intolerances and making food allergies more severe. To improve their symptoms, athletes often simply eliminate entire food groups, a blunt way out that doesn?t address the root problem and can leave athletes undernourished and hurt performance.

The Athlete?s Fix offers a smarter, fine-tuned approach. Taylor shows how athletes seeking high performance will benefit most from a diet full of a wide variety of foods. Her step-by-step program helps athletes isolate and identify their specific trouble foods while enabling them to eat a healthy variety of high-performance foods.

The Athlete?s Fix examines hot issues for athletes like:

  • Celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and gluten free diets
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Elimination and detox diets
  • Popular diet programs like Paleo, Dukan, Mediterranean, and Dash
  • Vegetarian, vegan, and raw food diets

The Athlete?s Fix program will lead athletes to a richer diet that is full of flavor, one that helps them feel and perform their best.

Product Description:

Endurance sports put the body under great strain, often exacerbating the body's inability to effectively process specific foods. For optimal performance, the athlete's diet has to omit the foods that cause trouble while maximizing the variety of foods that the body does manage well.

There are countless books about food intolerances and special diets, but this book is explicitly for athletes. Pip's approach is unique because she doesn't put every athlete on a universally restricted diet. For every athlete, the best diet will include the greatest variety of foods and nutrients. So Pip educates the athlete on the changes that benefit every diet and from there she helps the reader eliminate and reintroduce foods. Upon finishing this book, every reader should have a personalized diet that will help them feel better both in competition and in life.
