Applegate, Liz

Liz Applegate (Power Foods), a nutrition columnist for Runner's World, offers Eat Smart Play Hard: Fueling for Maximum Fitness and Peak Performance to exercisers of all stripes. Following the currently popular (and presumably wiser than the advice of 10 years ago) less-carbs-some-fats tip, Applegate prescribes clear, comprehensive programs that tell when to eat what, depending on the time of day of the work-out. She explains succinctly how mistaken beliefs about nutrition (among nutritionists and lay people) came about, and how "[n]ow, we know about specific foods that promote weight loss because they fill you up without filling you out." Her concentration on healthful weight loss and increased energy will win broad appeal.
