Living Without's Favorite Books: Peak Performance

Whether you are motivated by success stories (tennis champ Novak Djokovic went gluten free and enjoyed a recording-breaking 43-match winning streak) or an in-depth medical explanation of nutrient absorption, hydration and electrolytes, The Gluten-Free Edge (The Experiment Publishing) by Peter Bronski and Melissa McLean Jory has it covered. This is a book about gaining advantage in sports—and in life—by going gluten free. There are about 50 pages of nutrient-dense recipes, tips and dietary guidelines. There are no fetching photos. Instead, the real stars are the athletes and their gluten-free experiences. Need to be inspired? Here’s food for thought and fuel for peak performance.
