THE GLUTEN-FREE EDGE: A Nutrition and Training Guide for Peak Athletic Performance and an Active Gluten-Free Life (2012), by Peter Bronski and Melissa McLean Jory

Since the advent of sport, athletes have worked to gain an edge on their competition—to look, feel, and perform their best—through both training and nutrition. Today, science is increasingly showing the negative impact that gluten, a protein in wheat, barley, and rye, can have on health. 

For the estimated 30 million Americans with forms of gluten intolerance, such as celiac disease, this all-too-common protein can cause gastrointestinal trouble, inflammation, muscle fatigue, and mental fog that hinder an active lifestyle and negatively impact athletic performance. The solution: a whole-foods, nutrient-dense gluten-free diet. 

Others who voluntarily eat gluten-free can also discover an edge they never knew was missing: faster recovery, reduced inflammation, improved digestion, and increased athletic performance.

The Gluten-Free Edge is the first comprehensive resource that includes:
• What gluten is and how it negatively impacts health and athletic performance
• The myriad benefits of adopting a gluten-free nutrition plan
• What to eat during training, competition, and recovery
• How to deal with group meals, eating on the road, and getting “glutened”
• Insights from prominent athletes already living the gluten-free edge
• And 50 simple, high-octane recipes to fuel your performance

Whether you’ve been diagnosed with gluten intolerance or simply want to get ahead of the competition, this book is for you. Your own gluten-free edge is waiting.

Co-written with nutrition therapist and exercise science expert Melissa McLean Jory, MNT with a foreword by Amy Yoder Begley, US Olympian. Visit Melissa’s website, Gluten Free for Good.

“Along with great nutritional advice, this book includes personal stories from top-level athletes―many of them female―who had to go gluten-free for health reasons. It is an encouraging title for readers who may have given up exercise and other athletic goals after suffering prior to diagnosis and adoption of a gluten-free lifestyle.―Library Journal

“The Gluten-Free Edge goes beyond simply defining gluten, giving solid recommendations on fueling, recovering, and general health that when put into practice will set an athlete up for superior performance. Any hard-training athlete serious about health and performance should read and incorporate the principles of nutrition found in this book.”―Robert Kunz, MS, Co-Founder of First Endurance, VP Science and Technology

“If you want to learn more about how to optimize your performance and body composition, then read this book.  Seriously.”―Ryan D. Andrews, MS, MA, RD, CSCS, coach with Precision Nutrition
