Jesse Kropelnicki has been a coach for athletes for a long time, but, in addition to coaching their physical aspects, he extended his training into feeding the athletes the correct foods to increase their performances. And thus we have The Endurance Training Diet and Cookbook. The book is in two parts with equal lengths: in the first part, he discusses athletes’ diets and nutrition in detail. This is a very good and useful section for any athlete, yet it may apply to anyone physically active. Kropelnicki developed a specific diet for athletes he calls a Core Diet, a nutritionally balanced diet relying mostly on core foods of fish, lean meats, lean dairy, fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes. He includes many useful and informative sidebars and nice photo illustrations of performing athletes. Excellent tables (Fueling Windows, Carb-Loading Examples) are scattered throughout.

The second half consists of recipes for athletes in the traditional order of meals, but Kropelnicki includes an extra, shorter section, “Natural Workout Fuel.” The recipe writing and layout are perfect, and the recipes are very good, nearly all poultry, seafood, legumes, seeds, and nuts, some with good tips. These recipes are equally good for non-athletes, whether physically active or not. The cross-referenced index is good.
