About the Author

Dan Benardot is an associate professor in the Department of Nutrition at Georgia State University. He holds a doctorate in human nutrition. His primary area of expertise is sports nutrition, with a research emphasis in energy balance and nutrition issues related to young athletes. Bonardot was in charge of the nutritional health of the gold-medal winning United States Gymnastics Team at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and worked closely with the USA Track & Field team at the 2004 Olympics.


""Advanced Sports Nutrition "threads through the clutter of nutritional mumbo-jumbo. With the skill of the Olympic gymnasts and other elite athletes he advises, Dr. Dan Benardot deftly explains the latest scientific findings in lucid prose, emphasizing the importance of commonsense food-based nutrition over gimmicky supplements. A must for the bookshelf of athletes-and their coaches-who seek to fuel their top performance," Advanced Sports Nutrition "rates a perfect 10."
