Publisher's Summary

Women are not small men. Stop eating and training like one.   

Because most nutrition products and training plans are designed for men, it's no wonder that so many female athletes struggle to reach their full potential. ROAR is a comprehensive, physiology-based nutrition and training guide specifically designed for active women. This book teaches you everything you need to know to adapt your nutrition, hydration, and training to your unique physiology so you can work with, rather than against, your female physiology. Exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Stacy T. Sims, PhD, shows you how to be your own biohacker to achieve optimum athletic performance. 

Complete with goal-specific meal plans and nutrient-packed recipes to optimize body composition, ROAR contains personalized nutrition advice for all stages of training and recovery. Customizable meal plans and strengthening exercises come together in a comprehensive plan to build a rock-solid fitness foundation as you build lean muscle where you need it most, strengthen bone, and boost power and endurance. No matter what your sport is - running, cycling, field sports, triathlons - this book will empower you with the nutrition and fitness knowledge you need to be in the healthiest, fittest, strongest shape of your life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

lost me at no intermittent fasting

I've lost a total of 90 lbs over time and intermittent fasting is the only thing that consistently helped me... and no it wasn't muscle loss, believe me I've got plenty. I loved almost everything else, so much great information in there, but you know what, fasting had been a blessing for me. same for my younger sister. And fasting can increase stress hormones but if you're not doing it crazily you can do it right, it's a hormetic stress.. fasting is also linked strongly with longevity... not only that but eating "several small meals" a day made me huge. I gained 40 lbs. and I was working out and trying to maintain my weight and the pounds packed on. and I was eating healthy, so based personal experience and tons of other scientific based health books I've listen to/read, I'm going to have to disagree.. but like everything else you gotta decide what works best for you with all the info out there...

Excellent material

I loved this book. As a female athlete I found this information very interesting and well organized. I am a bit of a science nerd so having everything explained kept me intrigued. I enjoyed this so much that I bought the book too. I have been taking notes as I plan to implement many of these strategies into my daily life. I cannot wait to test out all of her suggestions. Dr. Stacy Sims has opened a door for women that we haven’t seen. She is smart and honest. I recommend this book to not only athletic women but to all women along with any coach or trainer who works with women. This is a learning tool to understanding how a woman’s body not only differs from a man’s body but how to eat and exercise for a woman.

So much great and actionable information.

I am training to ride endurance with my horse, we focus a lot on equine nutrition but seem to ignore human. so I wanted to change that. I don't want to be the weak link in my partnership. Learned so much of what to do and not do. I have already recommended the book to other riders. We have rides in the heat, cold, altitude, we ride for up to 15 hours. learning how to fuel and feed my body before, during and after is invaluable.

first 3 to 5 chapters made me want to pick my eyes

hard to get thru the first chapters as I felt we were being compared to a man. once I stuck with it, which I'm glad I did, I gained a lot of knowledge. so overall it's good, but wish there was less comparing and more educating from the get go.

Every Female should read/listen to this book

Holy cow, what a game changer! The authors provide great examples and guidance backed by scientific research. Any female, especially any athletic female, should read this and follow the guidelines. Very helpful in understanding how our bodies work (We are NOT small men!)

annoying slogan, excelent content

this was a super interesting read. science based approach with interesting examples. definately not a how to book or a "get healthy in 3 easy steps" sort of book. but have a lot of insight on how to be healthy and recover. and what proven science is showing.

Educational & interesting!

Learned a lot. I had no idea how to optimize my workouts with my period cycle, so this aspect was huge. Also loved the fact that the author covered every stage of life or contingency, so it's useful at any time (starting to workout, training for a huge race, pregnancy, menopause, overtraining, etc). I'll definitely have to reference the pdf to cement my learning. The only reason why I took off a star for performance is that she occasionally says things funny (like B-C-double A's instead of just BCAA). It's not distracting though.
