Go the Distance With Elite Eating

  • Take advantage of your diet to perform at peak levels.

Going all out as an athlete means taking your food intake as seriously as you take your workouts. Coach and nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald studied the diets of world-class competitors in 32 countries and came to the conclusion, “Elite endurance athletes in every sport and in all parts of the planet eat the same way.” Now Fitzgerald has distilled his knowledge into The Endurance Diet: Discover the World’s Greatest Athletes’ 5 Core Habits to Look, Feel, and Perform Better (Da Capo, mattfitzgerald.org, @mattfitwriter). He supports these five habits—eat everything, eat quality, eat carb-centered, eat enough, eat individually—with research results (as detailed in 11 pages of references) and then shows how you can build those habits day by day. If running for distance is your thing, The Endurance Diet may provide a roadmap to better performance.
