It is a rare privilege to hear words of wisdom from Professor Tim Noakes, the most respected sports scientist in South Africa and a household name.
His latest book has a ground-breaking chapter on the life changing benefits of a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet plus a fascinating explanation of why the Springboks did not win the 2011 Rugby World Cup!
In Challenging Beliefs, Noakes gives his views on everything from the myths perpetuated by the sports-drink industry and the dangers of overtraining and overdrinking, to the prevalence of banned substances and the need to make rugby a safer sport. He reveals the behind-the-scenes working of elite sport and sportspeople and some of the controversies which abound.
