Description

Product Description

Sports Nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald has spent nearly twenty years studying the diets of top professional endurance athletes, who are among the fittest and healthiest people in the world. As a result, he has identified five core habits-most of which are contrary to what popular diets advise-that are essential to maximizing workout benefits. The Endurance Diet shares key strategies for optimal health and performance: eat everything, eat quality, eat carbohydrate, eat enough, and eat individually. Whether you want to lose weight, win a race, or look a little more like an elite athlete, this plan is for you.

"I am always amazed at how much I learn from Matt Fitzgerald''s books." -- Shalane Flanagan, Olympic bronze medalist

Review

Matt Fitzgerald is the absolute best writer on endurance topics at work today. His books are well-researched and science-based, but his writing style makes it possible for anyone to understand his conclusions. The Endurance Diet is just the latest of his great work. The book uses both interviews with elite athletes from a wide range of sports, including cycling and triathlon, plus the latest studies to lay out an understandable, easy-to-follow eating plan anyone can do. It is not a "diet" so much as a collection of five basic eating habits endurance athletes have in common. He nixes fad diets in favor of eating a wide range of foods with an emphasis on carbs, fruits and vegetables, lean meats, dairy and more. He explains how to focus on eating just enough without becoming obsessive about counting calories. He adds insights from some of his other research, including the 80/20 plan which highlights the 80% easy to 20% hard ratio that yields the best results. If you are an elite athlete struggling to find a nutrition plan that works or an amateur athlete who wants to maximize the benefits of exercise and good nutrition, read The Endurance Diet.

I love this book. I bought a hard copy of Racing Weight for the beach this spring and loved it. So, I purchased The Endurance Diet for my kindle when I finished the other book. It is more than an update of nutritional information. It is packaged beautifully for regular exercisers as well as endurance athletes. I actually recommend that athletes, especially runners, read both books, because the organization of information in Racing Weight is very helpful, though more technical than this book.

I gave it five stars, because it provides Information that is not readily available to most people who exercise. It is an excellent resource for those who want to do more than just move around. However, this is difficult to do without hitting the wall in our carbohydrate phobic culture. What''s more: if you workout regularly, this weight management program is more effective for attaining and sustaining a leaner body composition and a higher level of fitness than the popular diets of our culture. However, we like to follow specific diets, so Matt Fitzgerald has packaged his program so that he can reach those of us looking for a more effective diet. Read this book and apply it.

I can''t stand all the fad diets out there and the athletes that mislead others on what or what not to eat. As a working mother and Ironman (140.6) finisher, I knew nutrition was one of the most important parts of training that I needed to dial in and refine. I already eat quite healthy but I knew there was more I could learn/improve upon. Matt Fitzgerald highlights the facts - not the fads - in this book and it is much appreciated. Between this book and The Endurance Training Diet & Cookbook, I learned so much about proper fueling to feel and see results. Highly recommend for anyone attempting long course triathlons or other ultra endurance races.

Finally, common sense advice on diet that is, yes, critical for athletes but also quite important for all of us. Fitzgerald cuts through all the hype and misinformation out there to provide us with principles to help us eat healthier and support us to perform better. A very useful read.

We read so much about paleo and NSNG with the warnings that sugars and grains are the source of all dietary problems. Fitzgerald takes a much more balanced approach to duet and recommends we eat a lot of variety in the diet with an emphasis on high quality foods which most of is already intuitively know.

Readable and reliable book loaded with information for any person aiming to be fit and healthy. What makes this book exceptional and different from all those hyped prescriptive books on nutrition and fitness is...wait for it....it isn''t!! With lots of science, food journals AND anecdotal stories of elite athletes from all over the world, Matt Fitzgerald manages to show the reader the generalizations and variations an average reader/athlete(read NOT elite athlete) can learn about nutrition/brain/exercise to personalize an approach to eating that makes sense. IT IS NOT PUNITIVE, restricted eating. It''s about choices. Great book for any teen or adult who wants accurate information to find his/her true potential.

It was very easy to plan diet changes based on this book. The author describes the rationale behind choices pretty well. I would have liked a little more citing of supporting studies. The author''s "polling the elite for commonalities" approach has its strengths and is fairly credible. But in the end, we have to trust that he has drawn and presented the right conclusions from his informal case studies and other experience. I''m going to try the diet for a few months leading up to my next race, and see how it goes.

Eat healthy and a large variety of food till your hunger is gone but don''t overeat. Make it carbs centred if you want to train endurance. If you want to lose weight eat less carbs and more lean meat, also go for a run on empty stomach once a week. Train hard and take days and periods of rest too. There I saved you reading 270 pages. There was no need for a whole book to say what he had to say.
