Sports Nutrition Guidebook


Sports nutritionist Nancy Clark counsels both competitive athletes and casual exercisers in her practice in Chestnut Hill, MA. She specializes in nutrition for exercise, wellness, and the management of eating disorders. Her clients have included the spectrum from Olympians and professional athletes to "ordinary mortals" and weekend warriors. Her nutrition advice and photo have even been the back of the Wheaties' box.

Nancy completed her undergraduate degree in nutrition from Simmons College in Boston and her graduate degree in nutrition with a focus on exercise physiology from Boston University. She is board certified as a specialist in sports dietetics (CSSD) and a Fellow of both the American Dietetic Association and the American College of Sports Medicine.

Nancy is author of the best-selling book Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook. This valued reference has sold over 500,000 copies; a new 4th edition was released in April 2008. The book offers both the scientific approach to eating for top performance, as well as the practical "how to" approach that includes specific menu ideas and food recommendations.

Nancy Clark's Food Guide for Marathoners: Tips for Everyday Champions (2007) and Cyclist's Food Guide: Fueling for the Distance (2005) are written from her passion for helping novice marathoners and cyclists. These books help aspiring athletes have the energy to enjoy reaching their goals.

Health and fitness are personal values for Nancy. She is a regular bicycle commuter and runner. She has completed several marathons, bicycled across America, and hiked in the Himalayas. She lives in the Boston-area with her husband and two teenage children.
