“[Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook is] the go-to manual for active people to fuel their exercise endeavors… With
a focus on sports nutrition, you’re not focused so much on losing, but on gaining. You’re gaining speed, strength and
stamina along with mental acuity and improved wellbeing. Yes, it’s also a great recipe for fat loss, but the dropping of
excess poundage, again, is a side benefit rather than a primary focus. And that’s what makes it sustainable. Sports
nutrition is about the journey rather than the destination. Diet books come and go, but Nancy Clark’s Sports Nutrition
Guidebook continues to be the book of choice for those who want to find out what they’re physically capable of… [The
book] made all the difference for me. I had done reasonably well in my fitness journey, having lost 30 pounds of fat and
gained a fair amount of muscle, but around 2003 was when I really wanted to up my game. I wanted to get faster and
stronger and leaner. The director of health and fitness programs at the University of Calgary recommended Nancy’s book
to me, and that was the start of changing how I viewed everything to do with food and fueling athletic performance. A
decade later I’m a muscular Boston Marathon qualifier who can see his abs. Thanks, Nancy.”
