Book News
In order to meet the intense physical requirements of being a U.S. Navy SEAL, a high energy diet along with adequate levels of hydration are required. This volume outlines both general principles of nutrition and ways of meeting the role's special requirements. Coverage includes special topics such as maximizing one's glycogen stores before a mission and consuming ergogenic rather than ergolytic foods, however, the focus is mostly on general foods. Specific brands of items such as energy bars are mentioned, along with recommended servings if one does end up going to a fast food chain. Deuster and Singh are both with the Uniformed Service University of the Health Sciences. Mann teaches military survival skills and was a member of a U.S. Navy Sea, Air, and Land (SEAL) team.
