The must-read practical guide to what to eat (on and off the bike) for any cyclist looking for a training or performance advantage If you're looking for success on the bike what you eat is at the core of all your training. You are what you eat - and if you're on the bike for long periods and expecting results then your diet is crucial. Get it wrong and you can feel sluggish and below par - but eat right and all the training and preparation will be worth it. Nigel Mitchell, head of nutrition at Cannondale-Drapac, is at the pinnacle of delivering cutting edge nutrition, and has demonstrated this at the elite level of cycling. Now Nigel lifts the lid on his nutritional secrets and the knowledge and experience gained from working with the top professional to help you get the most from your diet to fuel your cycling and gain a performance advantage. This accessible and practical toolkit features crucial rules to follow and 24 nutritional recipes for breakfast, main meals and snacks. This is a no-nonsense and non-faddy approach to a subject that's often shrouded in mystery and pseudo-science. Pro rider anecdotes and race case studies feature throughout to help you identify your own requirements.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Few people have been at the sharp end of cycling nutrition for as long as Nigel Mitchell. Here he provides insight into the dietary strategies required to fuel the world's best cyclists and includes 24 recipes to try out for yourself - not only main meals but snacks for on and off the bike too * Cycling Weekly *
Nigel Mitchell... details what to eat to give yourself the edge. He offers healthy-eating rules from his time at the tours, including the equipment he couldn't be without * Scotsman *
This book actually looks at the science of nutrition and it does so in a clever way, managing to be detailed whilst really easy to read and understand ... enjoyable, accessible and useful... it is interesting to peek into the world of elite cycling and see what those at the top of the game are doing when it comes to diet. * Bikes-n-Stuff *
This impressive guide from the former Sky nutritionist provides an accessible but detailed insight on what to eat for cycling. It strikes a good balance between Mitchell's pro cycling career and benefit led advice * 220Triathlon *
Mitchell will give you all the need-to-knows about eating right for your ride * Women's Fitness *
In my more competitive days I searched in vain for a comprehensive source of proven, practical advice that I could believe in and understand - and I have belatedly found it in Fuelling the Cycling Revolution. An excellent one-stop source of information and advice for improving your cycling performance by choosing the right food and drink. 9/10 -- Richard Peploe * Road.cc *
