‘Some very interesting reading: a solid and holistic prospective for fuelling your body by one of our very best sports nutritionists.’ – Jamie Oliver
What we eat has a huge impact on our physical and mental health, and our performance in our chosen sport. More Fuel You is a clear and authoritative guide to making the most of your nutrition. Leading sports dietitian Renee McGregor analyses fuelling needs and popular diet options for everyone from enthusiastic amateurs to elite athletes.
What we eat has a huge impact on our physical and mental health, and on our performance in our chosen sport, whether we’re elite-level athletes or enthusiastic amateurs. But, with so much information out there, how do we choose a way of eating that is right for us?
More Fuel You is a clear and authoritative guide to making the most of your nutrition. Leading sports dietitian Renee McGregor looks at fuelling needs for sporting participation, training and competition, and analyses some popular diet options, including low-carbohydrate, vegan and intermittent fasting.
But this is not just another sports nutrition book. Renee recommends a holistic view: by understanding the human body and being self-aware, you can find the ideal nutritional approach for you personally. Significantly, Renee also discusses areas of sports nutrition in populations that are often overlooked, including women’s health and the menopause, healthy ageing, and the inclusion of individuals who don’t necessarily conform to the stereotype of an athlete, such as people living with chronic health conditions.
Whatever your race, genetics, gender, age, socio-economic status, body type or ability, it’s important to be your own athlete, fuel appropriately for your body and enjoy what you do.
Whether you’re a world-class or real-world athlete, if you’re serious about sport and nutrition, you can’t afford not to read this book.
Renee McGregor is a leading sports and eating disorder specialist dietitian with twenty years’ experience working in clinical and performance nutrition. She has worked with athletes across the globe, including supporting Olympic (London 2012), Paralympic (Rio 2016) and Commonwealth (Queensland 2018) teams. Renee also works closely with English and Scottish National Ballet, leading on their diet advisory and supporting dancers of all ages and abilities. She is regularly asked to work directly with high-performing and professional athletes who have developed a dysfunctional relationship with food that is impacting their performance, health and career. Renee is also the founder of Team Renee McGregor, managing a team of practitioners specialising in supporting individuals and athletes of all levels and ages, coaches and sports science teams to provide nutritional strategies to enhance sports performance and manage eating disorders. This is reflected in her work on social media too, where she prides herself on proving an educational hub for both the professional and the everyday athlete. Renee is also a bestselling author of four books, including Training Food and Orthorexia: When Healthy Eating Goes Bad. When not inspiring others with her incredible work, Renee can be found running the mountains and chasing the trails, most likely training for a crazy ultramarathon.
