Written by the world's leading authorities on the glycemic index (GI), The New Glucose Revolution Pocket Guide to Peak Performance recommends what to eat to boost athletic performance, enhance stamina, and prevent fatigue. It presents success stories profiling athletes and others who have improved their performance by eating low—and high—GI foods at the appropriate times. It also answers the questions asked most frequently by athletes and others about the GI and includes a complete table with the GI, glycemic load, and carbohydrate values of more than 800 foods and drinks. Other subjects include energy charging with carbohydrate, eating for competing, refueling hints, and menu plans. Filled with fun, easy, and practical suggestions, it is ideal for weekend warriors, serious athletes, and everyone who wants to perform at their maximum.
