Nutrient Timing: Fueling Strategies to Unlock Peak Performance gives science-backed advice translated into practical recommendations to help optimize training, boost performance, and accelerate recovery. You’ll learn why nutrient timing matters and how to identify specific timing needs for your clients and athletes. Find carbohydrate, protein, fat, fluid, and supplement recommendations—for before, during, and after training or competition—applicable to a wide range of schedules, activity levels, and sports. Use the sample nutrition plans and case studies for various sports and real-world situations to help facilitate the implementation of those recommendations. Get time-saving food prep and meal planning tips to help your busy athletes keep their unique nutrition plans on track. You'll also learn nutrient timing strategies for clients working to gain muscle, lose fat, or recover from an injury.

Let Nutrient Timing be your guide to the ideal types of nutrients to consume, their quantities, and their optimal timing to enable your clients to perform to the best of their ability and achieve their goals.

After reading the ebook, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
