Jane's latest book, Food for Rugby will appeal to both Rugby Union and Rugby League players at all levels as well as their coaches. It provides a commonsense, up to date approach to nutrition for performance and, in a very user-friendly way, explains the latest scientific research on the subject.

The author has a wealth of knowledge, not only about what a correct diet can offer players in terms of performance, but also about how the relevant advice should be conveyed to them. Moreover, throughout the book a strong emphasis is placed on the fact that the rugby player’s diet must be enjoyable and practical, and also fit into his/her lifestyle and daily schedule.

This invaluable book covers the requirements of the training diet, the importance of fluids, what to eat and drink before, during and after matches, and how to gain muscle and lose body fat. It also addresses the controversial subject of the use of supplements and provides sound dietary advice to young players, as well as to those who are unfortunate enough to sustain an injury or become ill. Packed full of information and containing useful ideas for meals and sample menus, this book is essential reading for all serious rugby players and their coaches.
