Online Resource for Sports Nutrition

Check it out! Healthline has posted the entire contents of Advanced Sports Nutrition by Dan Benardot, PhD, RD, FACSM.

Dr. Benardot has a doctorate (PhD) in human nutrition and is a Registered Dietitian (RD)and Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (FACSM). This book is an amazing resource for anything and everything you may want to know about sports nutrition. If you are not a science geek like me some of it may be a little overwhelming, but there is plenty of other info that is easy to read and apply, too.
Here are some of my favorites (just click on what interests you):

A whole Chapter on Ergogenic Aids (Creatine, Glycerol, Caffeine, L-Carnitine, Ginseng, and more)
A whole Chapter on Gender and Age (Female Athletes, Young Athletes, Older Athletes)

I think those are enough links to the book for now. Please take the time to look at the Table of Contents yourself and click away as you see things that interest you.

Happy reading!
