From basic tenets of training to nutrition guidelines, The New Rules is the first resource for runners to fully integrate nutrition with training for a complete and systematic preraceplan. Fitzgerald’s powerful and easy–to–use tools will enable runners of all levels to attain their ideal racing weight, calculate their precise daily energy needs, and formulate a custom nutrition plan.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal, March 2013 “Extremely well done… A must for marathoners!” Portland Book Review, 4/21/13 “You will gain valuable information and insight about how to fuel your body from this book.” San Francisco / Sacramento Book Review (website), 5/9/13 “Written in a friendly and approachable manner and colored with many anecdotal stories from elite running history, this book is an easy and informative read that can help propel your runs to the next level.” WomanAroundTown.com, 9/7/13 “Fitzgerald gives sound advice to conquer the obstacle that blocks many runners from finishing their race…If you know a marathoner, you’ll make a fast—very fast—friend by gifting this book.” RunnersWorld.com, 12/17/2013“[Fitzgerald’s] perspective on hotly contested topics in sports science is always well-informed, practical, and leavened with enough skepticism to avoid jumping on and off every passing bandwagon…He's entirely reasonable in differentiating between proven ‘you must do this’ tactics, and more speculative ‘experiment with this if you're interested’ tactics…A nice intro to endurance nutrition.”
