Who is Eat This for Performance in Hockey written for?
The Nutrition Edge for Hockey Performance is written for all hockey players who are aspiring to take their game to the next level. The question and answer format of the book makes it really easy to get a quick answer to every nutrition question. The language is easy enough for young hockey players to understand, but make no mistake, the guidelines in the book are the same guidelines Pearle gives to her Olympians and NHL clients. Parents will also really benefit from our book. At the back of the book, we have menu plans and recipes that are family friendly. We have teamed up with S.O.S. Cuisine to offer custom meal plans to busy families. S.O.S. Cuisine is an online meal planning website that gives you recipes and grocery lists. Finally, this book is really a must-read for coaches. We answer questions that coaches often get from their players. We tackle important topics like what should young players be doing to gain weight, the value of sports drinks, how to stay energetic during tournaments and many more.
Unfortunately, many aspiring hockey players are misinformed and are turning to supplements to give them an edge. Any top performance, including an Olympic gold medal winning performance, does not rely on supplements. We show this in the form of a pyramid that we call the Top Performance Pyramid. The most important part of the pyramid is the base. Without a good base diet, proper training (which is necessary for improving performance) is not optimized. Supplements in the absence of a good base diet do not work, and may not even work with a good base diet, so they sit precariously on the edge of the pyramid. But, what exactly is a "good base diet"? Eat This for Performance in Hockey shows hockey players specifically which foods to eat, in what amounts, and when they should be aiming to eat these foods.
