Nutrition strategies that
every endurance athlete needs
to REALISE their potential
It’s hard core, but not knowing this information will cause you to lose muscle mass, be more susceptible to illness and experience more fatigue than you really need to.
Endurance athletes have to put in just about more training time than any other group of athletes that I work with. They are very dedicated and committed.
As a group their nutrition and diet is the poorest that I see.
An athlete is only ever going to be as good as the FUEL THAT GOES INTO THE TANK.
When I look at the nutrition diaries of most of my endurance athletes what strikes me is how NARROW their food choices are and how their diet is invariably underpinned by massive amounts of Pasta, Potatoes , Bread and Rice.
Often nutrition athletes particularly cyclists and tri athletes invest a FORTUNE on their equipment and pay scant regard to their nutrition.
Don’t get me wrong just about every endurance athlete knows that they need to keep hydrated and consume carbs usually in the form of energy bars and gels.
That’s the basics it’s just like breathing you should be doing that automatically.
I’ve decided to write a specailised book that my endurance athletes can review before they come to see me for consultations, it saves us both a lot of time and brings our consultations to a higher level faster.
In the book I share some of my tricks, cover the basics and introduce some advanced strategies that they can put to work now to improve performance.
Why ELIMINATING PASTA could be the best thing you do this YEAR!
Yes’ it’s true pasta could be hindering your performance and I recommend pretty much all my athletes to eliminate it from their diet. I’ll tell you why.
DIETRY FAT SHOULD BE A FRIEND NOT A FOE
Most athletes have an aversion to fat, we’ve been brainwashed to think that dietry fat is bad for us. It’s just not the case at all.
• Every cell membrane of our bodies is made up of fat.
• Our nerves rely on fat surrounding them to help conduct the electrical impulses.
• You need fat to lose fat.
• Why VIRGIN ORGANIC COCONUT OIL should be your fat of choice.
• How some fats are burned like carbs.
• How intramuscular fat is a more efficient than muscle glycogen.
• How elite athletes LEGALLY alter their OWN FUEL mix.
• 4 other GOOD fats you need to be eating REGULARLY.
Why PROTEIN is MORE IMPORTANT than carbs
Your body can function really well without carbs but ELIMINATE PROTEIN and your headed for muscle wastage and illness.
Just about every endurance athlete I have ever worked with has needed to increase their protein consumption. Many endurance athletes treat protein with suspicion. One athlete told me ‘ I don’t want to look like the incredible hulk’.
In my book I’ll explain the following
• How protein help boosts your immune system and stops you getting ill
• How eating protein protects your muscle mass and stops you CANIBALISING YOURSELF
• Why protein alone won’t cause gains in muscle mass.
Do you notice how some athletes rarely get ill and others are always coming down with something
Some simple nutritional strategies can help boost your immune system protecting you from illness and missing weeks from your training schedules. You need to know this stuff as missing training hurts in all sorts of ways.
What and how you eat straight after training is MORE important than what you eat before and during.
In isolation what you eat after is not going to affect your performance on race day, however if you don’t have a ROCK SOLID POST TRAINING PROTOCOL it’s going to lead to over training or as I like to say UNDER RECOVERY.
If you don’t RECOVER adequately then you won’t be ready for your next session and that’s the trigger for OVER TRAINING.
Lots of serious athletes WANT to train harder and longer and this area alone hinders their progress not to mention affecting their MOODS. Has your partner ever complained that you are MOODY, GRUMPY, SHORT TEMPERED, IRRITABLE. Poor Nutrition and inadequate recovery really can effect your mood.
Why BRANCH CHAIN AMINO ACIDS are the next big thing in endurance nutrition
Traditionally nutritionists and coaches have thought that performance tailed off towards the back end of races because carbohydrate stores were depeleted.
Scientific studies and detailed BIOCHEMISTRY has found that this may not be the case.
The simple version is this
As you exercise and your carb stores start to deplete and your body starts using fat and BCAA’s as a fuel.
These changes cause tryptophan (an amino acid) levels to rise. Tryptophan is an amino acid that when converted to serotonin helps you sleep and makes you feel tired
Consuming BCAA’s stops the tryptophan from having its effect.
Thus delaying the onset of fatigue.
This phenomena is called the Central Fatigue Theory expect more info to be released about this in coming years, it conveys significant performance advantages.
