The Gluten-Free Edge
A Nutrition and Training Guide for Peak Athletic Performance and An Active Gluten-Free LifeeBook - 2012
Since the advent of sport, athletes have worked to gain an edge on their competition&́#x80;to look, feel, and perform their best&́#x80;through both training and nutrition. Today, science is increasingly showing the negative impact that gluten, a protein in wheat, barley, and rye, can have on health. For the estimated 30 million Americans with forms of gluten intolerance, such as celiac disease, this all-too-common protein can cause gastrointestinal trouble, inflammation, muscle fatigue, and mental fog that hinder an active lifestyle and negatively impact athletic performance. The solution: a whole-foods, nutrient-dense gluten-free diet. Others who voluntarily eat gluten-free can also discover an edge they never knew was missing: faster recovery, reduced inflammation, improved digestion, and increased athletic performance. The Gluten-Free Edge is the first comprehensive resource that includes: &́#x80;Ø What gluten is and how it negatively impacts health and athletic performance &́#x80;Ø The myriad benefits of adopting a gluten-free nutrition plan &́#x80;Ø What to eat during training, competition, and recovery &́#x80;Ø How to deal with group meals, eating on the road, and getting &́#x80;glutened&́#x80; &́#x80;Ø Insights from prominent athletes already living the gluten-free edge &́#x80;Ø And 50 simple, high-octane recipes to fuel your performance Whether you&́#x80;ve been diagnosed with gluten intolerance or simply want to get ahead of the competition, this book is for you. Your own gluten-free edge is waiting.
