the glycemic index

elena philippou

in 1981, david jenkins, thomas wolever, and colleagues introduced the concept of the glycemic index (gi) to differentiate carbohydrates based on the rate of blood glucose rise following their consumption. although gi was first used in diet therapy for diabetes, research evidence has accumulated since then to thousands of publications from all over the world with applications for prevention and/or management of many diseases, as well as effects on physiological states and exercise.

the glycemic index: applications in practice has gathered together, in an unbiased and critical way, all the evidence and research on gi that has been studied, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome, pregnancy outcomes, sports performance, eye health, and cognitive functioning. it provides a detailed explanation on how to correctly measure a food’s gi, how the gi of food products can be altered, as well as the use and misuse of gi labelling around the globe.

the contributors are either pioneers or experts in the area of gi from all around the globe, including australia, canada, europe, and the united states. the book is a valuable source of information for healthcare professionals of various disciplines, nutritionists, dietitians, food scientists, medical doctors, sports scientists, psychologists, public health (nutrition) policy makers, and students in these fields, as well as an important addition to university libraries.

sports nutrition needs for child and adolescent athletes

chad m. kerksick

description

as the number of child and adolescent athletes continues to increase each year, more children are being exposed to greater training volumes and increasing physical demands-making the need for nutritional and recovery guidance increasingly important. while massive amounts of empirical research are published each year on responses and adaptations to exercise and nutrition, a relative lack of this data is focused on children and adolescents. filling this need, sports nutrition needs for child and adolescent athletes explores the optimal sports nutrition needs for the child and adolescent athlete in three, detailed sections. the first section-nutritional foundation-supplies a comprehensive look at topics that relate to nearly every athlete. it focuses on the need for optimal nutrition in youth athlete populations, highlighting energy, body composition, hydration, and both macro- and micro-nutrient requirements. the second section-special considerations in child and adolescent athletes-focuses on topics that are more specific.
this section includes coverage of the impact of common recreational drugs on exercise performance, steroid use in youth and associated dangers, key elements of working with diabetic and other clinically relevant populations, as well as discussions that relate to overweight and weight-conscious athletes, respectively. the final section-a hands-on approach-reviews nutritional programs for both child and adolescent athletes. it uses an easy-to-understand approach to discuss and apply situations that can challenge athletes, their parents, and coaches by making sure young athletes are well fueled and recovered for all sporting situations. for the purposes of the research presented in this book, a child athlete is defined as an athlete between the ages of 7 and 12 years while an adolescent athlete is defined as an athlete 13-17 years of age.show more

outpatient nutrition care and home nutrition support practical guidelines for assessment and management

carol s. ireton-jones

description

nutrition, defined by merriam-webster, is the process of eating the right kind of food so you can grow properly and be healthy. however, making the right food and nutrition choices and finding the best and most accurate nutrition information can be a challenge, especially when a disease or injury is present. there are a wide range of ways that nutrition can be healing, from a simple broth that provides fluids and electrolytes to therapeutic nutrition for diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, or osteoporosis. registered dietitian nutritionists (rdn) have expertise in disease management and translation of nutrition requirements to foods to consume. however, nutrition care often does not receive the attention in the out-patient setting that is needed to achieve nutrition goals. the purpose of this book is to provide pertinent and concise nutrition care information for registered dietitian nutritionists and other professionals working with individuals outside of the hospital including nurses, pharmacists, and physicians.
this book covers screening, assessing, and treating malnutrition; out-patient nutrition care in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disease, osteoporosis; and home enteral and parenteral nutrition. in each chapter the reader will learn more about the disease process as well as the management of the disease or therapy. as the number of patients receiving home care nutrition support increases, proper assessment and management of this therapy is crucial, and clinicians need to practice at an advanced level. this book presents advanced and readily applicable information on proper nutrition care of individuals in the outpatient setting and those receiving home nutrition support.show more

    nutrition for elite athletes

    ph.d. eric s. rawson; ph.d. stella lucia volpe
    >

    in order to achieve and maintain peak performance, high-level athletes require the right nutrition at the right time. nutrition for elite athletes provides a comprehensive overview of the latest research on the nutritional requirements of athletes at the top of their game.
    since researchers, clinicians, and graduate students work with certain populations of athletes, such as endurance athletes, and not single nutrients or metabolic systems, this book arranges topics by 1) athletic population and 2) nutrition /exercise interactions that reach across athletic sub populations (such as recovery nutrition), instead of by nutrients or metabolic system.
    bringing together the contributions of well-known experts from around the world, the book identifies the nutritional needs of endurance athletes, strength power athletes, team sport athletes, and weight class/aesthetic sport athletes. in addition to coverage of recovery nutrition and energy balance, the book:

    • reviews the foundations of energy metabolism
    • considers dietary supplements, food safety, and drug/nutrient/exercise interactions
    • examines hydration requirements for various types of athletes
    • explores how vitamins and minerals impact performance

    the book assumes an understanding of the terms discussed in introductory nutrition courses as well as an understanding of metabolic systems concepts taught in undergraduate nutrition and exercise physiology courses. by doing so, the authors are able to get right into detailing the nutritional needs of elite athletes.
    in addition to its appeal for dieticians, researchers, and clinicians working with elite athletes, this book is suitable for use as a textbook for upper-level exercise nutrition and metabolism courses.”
