High-Performance Nutrition for Masters Athletes Ebook With CE Exam
This author is definitely biased in her opinions which she teaches in this book as fact. She states that swimming and non-weight bearing exercise is not beneficial for bone health, yet current research shows that swimming and water exercise may not increase bone "density" but can improve bone "flexibility" and is a big factor in decreasing fractures. She is pro-carbohydrate but there are very few studies done on fat-adapted athletes. She has a whole section on reading studies, and yet she states that breakfast is the most important meal of the day based on studies done on SEDENTARY INDIVIDUALS. She does not take into account GMOs or glyphosate contamination. The amounts of liquids are measured in milliliters per kilogram of body weight so you have to convert everything. As with all nutrition courses it is hard to tell what is true and what is opinion. She bases her opinions on studies, but left out the bone flexibility study mentioned above, and admittedly says that there is a lack of studies in many areas. Studies can be used to “prove” or “disprove” most any opinion. Instead of clearing up gray areas, this course just made those gray areas more gray.
