The present book titled Nutritional Guidelines for Sportspersons equips a nutritionist, student, coach, fitness trainer, and an athlete with all the information needed to devise a diet plan that helps to train, sustain, perform and excel in sports. It is a comprehensive book divided into two sections that describe concepts in sports nutrition and sports specific nutrition and dietary guidelines, which are further divided into 15 chapters. First section begins with an introduction of the reader to the basics of nutrition, exercise, physical activity and also gives a broad classification of different sports (endurance, power/strength, team, weight class, racket sports). The second and third chapters explain bioenergetics of exercise and fuel utilization, body composition assessment, its need, methods used and factors influencing the same. Classification, functions in relation to exercise or sport, requirements, metabolism, factors influencing use in exercise and sources of macronutrients are broadly discussed in three chapters. The second section focuses on the practical aspects of nutrition and begins with the essentials of dietary planning for athletes. In both the sections of the book, a special feature—nutrition spotlight gives recent advances, guidelines and research studies related to the chapter. The present book will definitely be an important resource of reference for academicians, students from nutrition and sports related fields, coaches and sportspersons.
