Discover the secrets of Sports Nutritionists from around the globe

Our two bestselling nutritional titles Protein Nutrition for Peak Performance and Nutritional Supplements – Boosting your Performance worth over $100 for just $1.97!

Dear Mircea,

You are what you eat.

I bet you’ve heard this phrase a million times. But it couldn’t be more prevalent in terms of sports nutrition.

Optimum performance, needs optimum nutrition. Yet it’s so difficult for athletes to strike a healthy balance when day in day out we are inundated with countless fad diets and promise-the-earth performance-enhancing supplements.

With so much nutritional mumbo-jumbo floating around, it’s hardly surprising that we are so confused…

That’s why I decided to offer these two amazing reports – Protein Nutrition for Peak Performance and Nutritional Supplements – Boosting your Performance – for a ridiculously low price of just $1.97 (approx. £1.20).

I wanted to set the record straight; and provide our loyal readers with unbiased, evidence-based research which cuts straight through the myths surrounding sports nutrition. So these groundbreaking titles combine to assess the latest thinking on two of nutrition’s most highly contested ‘buzz-topics’.

Firstly Protein Nutrition for Peak Performance sets out to prove why protein – although often underestimated - is as central to sports nutrition as carbohydrates are.

It also highlights how many athletes are falling short of their RDA, and as a result so is their performance. The report then remedies this quandary by detailing how you can implement your very own protein strategy without the need for consulting a costly sports nutritionist.

Whereas Nutritional Supplements – Boosting your Performance assesses the major players in the current sports supplement market and deciphers the marketing spiel.

The findings in this report are staggering.

It reveals that many supposed performance-enhancing supplements are not only a complete waste of money, but many taken incorrectly could be harmful not just to athletic performance, but to long-term health too.

Both reports set out with one goal in mind - to allow you, the reader, to make unbiased and informed decisions regarding effective sports nutrition. And because they are available for just $1.97, it would be a costly decision NOT to take advantage of this never-to-be-repeated promotion.

I strongly feel this is an area athletes must pay considerable attention to if they want to achieve real success and the fact I have commissioned two separate reports on the subject of sports nutrition really highlights that belief.

With this in mind I have arranged a fantastic offer that delivers you both of these special reports for an incredible price, full details of which you can find below.

Yours sincerely,

Jonathan Pye

Protein Nutrition for Peak Performance

Why it’s much more than just raw eggs and chicken breasts…

Protein is so much more than just an essential nutrient – it’s the largest component in the body after water, typically representing about 15% of body weight. What’s more, most of this protein mass is found in muscle, which explains the importance of protein to athletes.

However, while the basic biochemistry and functional roles of protein in the body have long been understood, there’s still a huge amount of mythology and confusion surrounding protein nutrition – especially where performance athletes are concerned. This is partly because of general misconceptions about basic protein metabolism, and partly because new research continues to throw up surprises about exactly what constitutes optimum protein nutrition!

Now, thanks to some important new work in this area, sports scientists know more than ever about the crucial role protein plays in sports performance – not just on an athlete’s BIG DAY, but in conditioning, training, recovery, injury prevention and more.

And now you too can benefit from this research thanks to this 103-page report compiled by Andrew Hamilton, Editor of Peak Performance. This timely guide for serious athletes, coaches and sports nutritionists gives you the benefit of literally decades of combined knowledge and experience in performance nutrition.

He has come up with a thorough, yet accessible distillation of the best practice thinking of four leading practitioners in this area – not mere theoreticians but highly-trained specialist professionals, each of whom deals with sports performance on a daily basis.

NB: Each chapter of Protein Nutrition for Peak Performance is worth more than the cover price of the report. Imagine what it would cost for a 30-minute one-to-one consultation with a professional sports nutritionist…

Instead you get the benefit of the contributors’ collective experience and expertise for far less than you’d pay for a sports drink.

Order your copy TODAY and discover why protein is central to sports nutrition and how to implement your own protein strategy. Here is a taster of just some of the nutritional ‘secrets’ you will uncover:

  • Which groups of athletes are known to be at risk of eating insufficient protein – and thus undermining their sports performance?
  • What, if any, are the REAL health risks of a high-protein diet?
  • Which forms of natural protein work best – and which are largely a waste of your time and effort?
  • How does the average athlete’s Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of protein differ from that of a sedentary individual – and are the various national and international regulatory authorities correct in the advice they post on their web sites?
  • What’s the most convenient way to get the optimal amount of protein into your diet – without having to eat absurd quantities of foodstuffs?
  • How can protein ingestion be used to accelerate post-exercise recovery –even following a particularly strenuous work-out?
  • What forms of protein have been proven to reduce the perception of fatigue in endurance athletes, while improving mood and cognitive performance, when administered in a certain way?
  • A ‘Revolutionary’ Protein Drink for Athletes: how much of this do you already have in your refrigerator?
  • Which protein supplements are worth taking – and which may be more hype than anything else?

Understanding Protein’s Central Role in Nutrition:
Do you have the right information to optimise your sports performance?

Given how many ‘myths’ have been perpetuated about the role protein plays in the diet of athletes, it’s essential that any report on the topic kicks off with a proper treatment of the subject.

So in Protein Nutrition for Peak Performance we begin by explaining what protein is, and what role it plays in the human diet. Then we explain – in words of one syllable – how protein metabolism works, and the particular importance and relevance of protein for sporting performance.

Because it’s essential to understand that protein metabolism is in a constant state of flux. Which means that although muscle and other tissues contain a large amount of stored protein, this protein is not ‘locked away’.

So when dietary amino acids (the building blocks of protein) are insufficient, tissue protein can rapidly be broken down back to amino acid building blocks, which are then used to replenish the ‘amino acid pool’, a reservoir of amino acids that can be drawn upon to support such vital functions as energy production or immune function.

This explains why muscle mass is often lost during times of stress, disease and heavy training loads, or poor nutrition.

Conversely, when dietary amino acids are in plentiful supply and other demands for protein are low, tissue protein synthesis can become the dominant process.

So it’s essential that we athletes maintain optimum protein status so we have the muscle mass we need to perform at our very best, regardless of our sport or event.

But to achieve that, we need to know:

  • How much protein do athletes really need to optimise and maintain performance?
  • Should any extra protein be ingested at the expense of carbohydrate, the body’s preferred fuel for high-intensity training?
  • Are there really implications for athletes’ health of following a high-protein diet? (Certainly health professionals often express such concerns.)
  • What do we now know about the protein requirements of athletes, relative to sedentary people?
  • How can larger athletes, or those engaged in high volumes of training, get the amount of protein they need in their diet without having to consume absurd quantities of eggs and the like, daily?

You’ll find the answers to these, and other core nutritional questions, only in Protein Nutrition for Peak Performance.

Optimal Protein Nutrition: why quality is more important than quantity?

There’s more to protein nutrition than just eating the optimum amount; the timing of consumption and the type of protein selected can both impact on nitrogen balance; and there are a number of nutritional ‘co-factors’ that are either essential or useful in promoting optimum protein metabolism within the body.

This is especially true where carbohydrate is concerned, because building or even maintaining lean tissue mass is an ‘energy-intensive’ process.

Increasing protein intake at the expense of carbohydrate can be a bad strategy for athletes engaged in heavy training, because without sufficient carbohydrate the body simply switches to other fuels for energy, and amino acids from protein (particularly the so-called branched chain amino acids) provide a ready source of energy!

So in Protein Nutrition for Peak Performance we tell you how to get the most benefit out of your protein ingestion – primarily, but not exclusively, by ensuring that you eat the right kinds of protein, at the right times of the day (to meet your specific training and competition requirements), and in the right combinations with other foodstuffs.

There’s a lot more to this protein ‘thing’ than simply swallowing large numbers of raw eggs!

NB: we also share with you a feeding strategy which, when combined with certain kinds of training, results in a significantly higher protein uptake. A particularly useful training ‘secret’ for anyone who needs bulk to perform well at their sport.

And you’ll learn how to use protein ingestion to accelerate post-exercise recovery.

This section concludes with a 10-point table that summarises the key points you should include in any comprehensive protein strategy.

I’d argue this table alone is worth the price of the report!

Remember: Protein Nutrition for Peak Performance dissects the major current debates in sports nutrition – an area of fast-changing sport science knowledge that can make a REAL difference to your training programmes and sports performance. It analyses the very latest scientific findings about the central role of protein – then spells out (without the jargon!) their significance for the serious athlete, coach and sports nutritionist.

We hope you’ve fully digested your sports-science starter of Protein Nutrition, because now it’s time to introduce the second course…

Nutritional Supplements

Serious athletes don't need reminding of the importance of adequate nutrition. What they do need is reliable, unbiased and up-to-date information on dietary best practice - particularly nutritional supplements, a subject on which it's rare to find independent, evidence-based advice.

Taking the wrong supplements is not just an unnecessary expense. It can actually undermine your performance - and even damage your long-term health.

This 95-page special report provides a rare opportunity to assess the latest sports nutrition thinking for yourself, and decide how best to integrate it into your training and conditioning.

Read our groundbreaking assessment of nutritional supplements in the sport and you'll learn how - in terms of sports performance - ‘you are what you eat':

  • Which common supplements really work, and how they benefit you. And… which ones may be a complete waste of your money.
  • What's behind the three brand new supplements that have the sports science community in such a lather - could they really be as good as they appear?
  • Which natural foods can boost your body's immune systems and keep respiratory and other illnesses at bay - even during the most challenging training periods. Bottom line: you can train harder without fear of losing valuable time because of colds and flu.
  • Why iron deficiency is so common amongst athletes - and why you may be suffering from this performance-inhibiting ailment without you or your doctor being aware of it.
  • How you can adjust your daily diet to make sure you get the most out of your food intake - and boost your sports performance.
  • Antioxidant vitamins: could they actually be harmful?

A New Nutritional Supplement to rival Creatine?

Did you know there's a dietary substance containing a mixture of amino acids and ketoacids that looks set to challenge creatine's position as the supplement of choice among strength-power athletes? Now you can read all about this promising newcomer in Nutritional Supplements - Boosting Your Performance.

Unlike creatine, which requires approximately 5 days of loading to produce improvements in high-intensity work, this rival supplement appears to have an ergogenic effect within minutes of consumption.

We give details of a recent American research project in which track cyclists were engaged in repeated bouts of anaerobic exercise after having taken a dose of the test nutrient. They were able to perform at a higher work output, and also noted a significant delay in the onset of muscle fatigue.

Scientists are now considering whether the effects of this nutrient might be further enhanced by its being given in combination with creatine.

"I think your coverage of Supplements especially, has been first rate - very comprehensive, informative and a great bank of information to draw upon." Joshua Black, Sports & Science Marketing Manager

Antioxidant Vitamins - can they actually be bad for you?

Oxygen. It's amazing stuff. Thanks to its special chemical reactivity, it provides us with the energy required to sustain life, including the ability to power movements and muscular contraction.

However, the oxygen molecule is a double-edged sword. For this same chemical reactivity can also wreak cellular havoc by means of the free radicals that are produced unavoidably as a consequence of harnessing the chemical energy of oxygen within the body. The damage created by free radicals is now thought to be one of the root causes of degenerative diseases, inflammation and the ageing process in general.

In recent years, there has been much speculation that athletes, who not only consume more oxygen than others to fuel their training but also frequently train at or near their maximum oxygen uptakes, might be at increased risk of free radical-induced damage, or 'oxidative stress'.

That's because athletes don't just process a larger volume of oxygen than their sedentary counterparts - they also process it at a higher rate. During training, the rate of oxygen processing by the mitochondria can rise by a factor of 20, placing exceptionally high demands on antioxidant defence systems.

The fact that free radical generation does increase during vigorous exercise is no longer in doubt. However, there's still considerable confusion about the implications of this increased free radical generation.

In Nutritional Supplements - Boosting Your Performance we report on recent sports science research findings that clarify the role of anti-oxidant nutrients in combating the effects of intensive exercise regimes. The research shows which nutrients have a positive effect - and how best to take these supplements.

Importantly, a new study reports that some antioxidant nutrients, far from being synergistic, may actually work against one another. We identify these antioxidants for you and tell you how best to integrate them into your daily nutrition regime.

Moreover, we report that certain vitamins, commonly taken for anti-oxidant purposes, actually appear to worsen the situation by promoting cellular damage when taken in high doses. You'll find out which vitamins to watch out for, and what are the recommended doses.

Finally, we examine the role that a fruit and vegetable-rich diet can play in combating free radicals - and, crucially, how to tell if a particular fruit or vegetable is high in antioxidants.
