Performance Nutrition for Tackling Stress

Book Giveaway!

By Melissa Alcorn July 12, 2013

We all have stress, whether it is every day stress like a looming deadline and the sleep deprivation that accompanies a new baby, or major trauma such as surviving a near-death car crash and picking up the pieces after a horrific hurricane.

We all deal with our stress differently. For many of us, food is part of the equation; losing weight while stress eats at our appetite or gaining when we turn to comfort food. Neither is a healthy solution nor does it help us cope with life’s ups and downs.

In her new book, Performance Nutrition for Tackling Stress, America’s leading sports nutrition and performance therapist (also car crash and hurricane survivor), Lisa Dorfman, shows you how to tackle stress from every day to catastrophic with food and fitness. Backed by the latest research in stress and diet, she explains how stress affects our whole being and strategies to overcome it. In the book Lisa shares personal stories of men and women from around the world along with their heirloom healing recipes. These quick and simple recipes will help you stay strong and healthy so that you can overcome the challenging times in your life. Learn complimentary stress relief tools such as meditation, aroma therapy and supplementation as well as the benefits of detox too. A must read for anyone who is ready to take control of their stress and be inspired to live a healthier life.

Performance Nutrition for Tackling Stress is available on Lisa's website: The Anti-Stress Diet ( and on Amazon.
