A step-by-step plan to help any athlete build muscle, lose fat, and compete at a higher level
The astounding physical feats of top athletes like Michael Phelps, Serena Williams, and LeBron James are not just a matter of training and conditioning. They are equally the product of a carefully constructed diet and nutritional regimen. The Athletes Cookbook contains recipes for over 100 nutritionally balanced dishes, each aimed at reaching specific athletic goals. Grilled Chicken Pilaf nourishes the body for weight-training recovery, a Peanut Butter Truffle Smoothie fuels early-morning cross-training, and Mussels Marinara with Spaghetti provides a carb load-up before the big race. Along with recipes for ultra-healthy superfoods, The Athletes Cookbook also transforms favorite comfort foods into nutrient-packed, protein-rich, and low-fat pizzas, burgers, and pastas. Day-by-day menus help anyone accomplish their personal fitness goals, and every menu includes a detailed nutritional breakdown and a careful explanation of how each ingredient helps fuel and transform the body.
