The first diet book based on research with dancers, this guide provides information about proper dietary procedures that will enable people to reach and/or maintain their optimal body weight for dancing. Areas discussed include weight control, individual differences in metabolism, and body composition.
It's a good read, even for non dancers and I think it's a great read for older dancers especially. A lot of statistical information is provided about dancers, mainly to give a picture of what their common eating mistakes are.
It covers three areas:
1. an introduction to nutrition
2. the biology of weight
3. the transfer diet, a diet developped for diabetics
