Eat to win! Practice is only part of a winning sports strategy. Whole foods have to be part of the playbook to increase energy, endurance, and focus, both on and off the field. What to eat and when to eat, pre-game, during and afterwards? How much fluid do you need to be hydrated? What to eat when youre on the road? These are critical answers to have for young athletes, competing on a demanding schedule and eating on the run.

I purchased this book as a student of Cynthia's and Scott Murdoch's at Bastyr in Kenmore, Washington. The book has very good information and I have recommended to a friend and want to buy another copy for myself. I am looking forward to the June release!
