Review of the New Power Eating by Susan Kleiner published by Human Kinetics,
Turn nutrition into power.
How can an athlete have the physical power to make a real impact and lead her or his team? The art and science sports nutrition can give a competitive advantage.
The idea is to maximize your potential and workout goals with valuable and detailed nutrition information you can use.
Can a book really transform your body? Can words help you build muscle, lose fat, and maximize performance?
Well, even the most skeptical can discover that author Dr. Susan Kleiner, Ph.D., RD, FACN, CNS, FISSN, with her long list of credentials, can make a difference.
In The New Power Eating, author Susan Kleiner explains strategies she’s actually used with male and female professional athletes and Olympians – strategies that have worked.
The New Power Eating is an effective resource with easy to use information. Want to transform your body? Learn what can make a difference and perhaps developing good habits will be easier and more natural.
Of course, I gravitated to the “Sport Nutrition: Fact versus Fiction: Is Chocolate Healthy or Harmful?” And, I loved the answer, “Healthy! Chocolate is a healthy choice in prudent amounts.”
What is the correct workout carbohydrate count? Is there a difference depending upon the intensity of the soccer practice or a player’s activity level in the game? Get the answers to these questions plus how much calcium do you really need and so much more.
From the Best Choices to Good Choices and those Choices to Avoid, this book lists the options clearly.
With new recipes for easy main courses that really pack a hefty nutritional punch, Dr. Kleiner combines sports science with practical and tested experience.
What is the book missing? Well, it is a lot of print with a few pictures and several tables. It is not a glistening coffee table book but a practical guide that can help athletes reach a higher level of performance.
Complete with a success tracker sheet, different complete menus for novices as well as experienced men and women for fat loss plans and building muscle plans, the New Power Eating book is a great find for youth soccer players and their families As Dr. Kleiner herself says, “It’s your path to power excellence.”
Megan Rapinoe, U.S. Women’s National Team, and Seattle Reign FC midfielder said, “Dr. Keliner showed me to focus my food and fully fuel my body.”
“I feel better, play better and I know I’ll be able to stay in the game longer.”
“Add the New Power Eating to your training program and achieve your physique and performance goals,” said Rapinoe.
