<p><strong>An eye-opening exploration of how the human body can best recover and adapt to sports and fitness training.</strong></p><br /><p>In recent years <em>recovery</em> has become a sports and fitness buzzword. Anyone who works out or competes at any level is bombarded with the latest recovery products and services: from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers, electrical muscle stimulators, and sleep trackers.</p><br /><p>In <em>Good to Go</em>, acclaimed <em>FiveThirtyEight</em> science writer Christie Aschwanden takes readers on an entertaining and enlightening tour through this strange world. She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance; she examines the latest trends among athletes, from NFL star Tom Brady鈥檚 infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles鈥?pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps鈥檚 鈥渃upping鈥?ritual; and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, float tanks, and infrared saunas.</p><br /><p>At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, <em>Good to Go</em> seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?</p>

<b><i>In a civilized society, violence is rarely the answer. But when it is-it's the <u>only</u> answer. </i></b><br /><br />The sound of breaking glass downstairs in the middle of the night. <br /><br />The words, "Move and you die." <br /><br />The hands on your child, or the knife to your throat. <br /><br />In this essential book, self-protection expert and former military intelligence officer Tim Larkin changes the way we think about violence in order to save our lives. By deconstructing our assumptions about violence-its morality, its function in modern society, how it <i>actually </i>works-Larkin unlocks the shackles of our own taboos and arms us with what we need to know to prevent, prepare for, and survive the unthinkable event of life-or-death violence. Through a series of harrowing true-life stories, Larkin demonstrates that violence is a tool equally effective in the hands of the "bad guy" or the "good guy"; that the person who acts first, fastest and with the full force of their body is the one who survives; and that each and every one of us is capable of being that person when our lives are at stake. <br /><br />An indispensable resource, <i>When Violence is the Answer</i> will remain with you long after you've finished reading, as the bedrock of your self-protection skills and knowledge. <br /><br />

<h3><strong>Are you looking for meatless, high protein recipes for athletes? Are you trying to figure out if a vegan can excel in his sport despite a seemingly protein-free diet?</strong></h3><h3><br /></h3><h3><u><em>"If you don't eat meat, you don't get protein!"</em></u></h3><p><br /></p><h3>This statement is as false as it is widespread among people. There are many people who think that, for example, it may be impossible for a body builder to train in a vegan lifestyle.</h3><p><br /></p><h3>Fortunately, things are slowly changing.</h3><h3>In the world of sports, veganism, which is already a top eating phenomenon and lifestyle, is taking shape. Olympians, body builders, boxers, and top athletes in the NBA and NFL have followed this lifestyle.</h3><h3>Because of the lack of animal protein, athletes and body builders usually think that developing and training their muscles through a vegan diet is very difficult. Sometimes the lack of protein in the vegan diet makes you want meat you didn't give up. Even worse, you may forget the benefits of vegan lifestyle due to the lack of taste and flavor in common vegan recipes.</h3><h3>Nature is a great healthy protein source, and many plant-based foods still have more protein than meat. In fact, these foods contain very little fat compared to meat, which, as we know, will increase cholesterol levels and the risk of heart attack.</h3><p><br /></p><h3>Initially this cookbook is structured to give the right information for all those who want to start adopting a healthier lifestyle.</h3><ul><li><h3>Why you need to cut back on processed and animal-based products</h3></li><li><h3>What to look out for when adopting this lifestyle</h3></li><li><h3>Benefit from a vegan diet</h3></li><li><h3>Why Athletes are running to Vegan Diet?</h3></li><li><h3>What protein is and why we need it</h3></li><li><h3>How much protein do we need?聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽</h3></li><li><h3>Stock your pantry: food guide for a vegan diet</h3></li></ul><h3><br /></h3><h3>After this first part, once you have filled your pantry with the right ingredients, the book presents over fifty delicious recipes:</h3><ul><li><h3>protein-rich</h3></li><li><h3>to be consumed throughout the day</h3></li><li><h3>easy to prepare</h3></li></ul><h3>Make your vegan athletic journey a tasty one by learning from someone who's been there!
