Eat Right, Swim Faster is the ultimate nutrition resource for competitive swimmers of all ages. It is a smartly written book of highly practical and very accessible information for swimmers interested in what food can do for them in their pursuit of maximum performance in the water.

About the Author

"As a parent of a swimmer, I always hated to hear the dreaded question "what should I eat?" Abby has gathered a great deal of information in a format that is easy to understand and use. I really like that Abby is an athlete and coach herself, a swim parent and a registered dietitian, so she understands the theory and the reality of feeding our athletes and ourselves. Nutrition is part of an athlete's everyday health and a critical part of recovery. Her book is an excellent training and competition resource, complete with typical Q&A and recipes for athletes and their parents."
