The subject of thermodynamics is rarely found in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology textbooks. Yet this material is fundamental to any serious inquisition concerning energy exchange.
This book provides a fresh approach to the study of energy expenditure by introducing the latest concepts in open system thermodynamics and cellular to whole-body energy exchange. The text traces biological energy exchange, from the molecules in the food we eat to the energy demands of rest, physical exertion and its recovery.
The carefully researched text advances traditional exercise physiology concepts by incorporating contemporary thermodynamic and cellular physiology principles into the context of a 'working' metabolism.
This book is written for upper level undergraduate and graduate students, but will also appeal to exercise physiologists, registered dieticians and nutritionists, and applies to cardiac rehabilitation, exercise science and health fitness programs.
The Paleo Diet is the new craze. What is the Paleo Diet plan? The Paleo Diet consists of eating foods in their natural (usually raw state) like the ancient caveman. The belief is that foods in their natural states (before processing) are healthier for us. The name comes from the Paleolithic age when cavemen roamed the earth. The paleo diet meal plan is only part of the theory as exercise is also a primary reason why many believe in the paleo diet for athletes. There is a popular saying amongst dieters that says "eat like a caveman and exercise like a cavemen" Eating like a caveman means raw, natural foods grown in the ground. Meats from animals that graze on grass. Exercise like a caveman is important since all day long the caveman hunted and did physical labor since there were no modern conveniences (like cars).Plaeo diet cookbooks show both raw as well as cooked meals and we are happy to provide you a sample of some of our favorite paleo recipes. We also have a great section listing the paleo diet foods that are free to eat, foods that should be eaten only occasionally and a list of foods to avoid.The Paleo Diet is a drastic change is one's lifestyle, but is worth the change with the increase health you can expect from the diet.
