2011-10-16T07:48:08 -10.00Paleo Diet for better performanceThis forum seems just about dead, but I thought I would share my thoughts on nutrition anyways. I've been on the Paleo diet for about three years now and have had very good success, both in race results and improved quality of life. I have started an informative website on the subject and invite you to check it out at your convenience.<BR>As a basic summary of the Paleo Diet, you have only two food groups: processed foods and natural whole foods. Breads, pastas, grains, cereals, legumes, dairy, soy, all fall into processed food. Lean meat, fruit, veggies, nuts, seeds, oils fall into natural foods. By simply shifting your consumption to the natural side, you can greatly improve your health and performance.<BR><BR><a target=_blank class=ftalternatingbarlinklarge href="http://www.paleodietandliving.com">http://www.paleodietandliving.com</a>
2011-05-13T11:12:51 -10.00Stabilizing your Blood Sugar to reach optimum perfromanceI'm just getting back into my training after several injuries and am inteested in doing it right. what type of advice do you have?
2010-09-25T18:59:28 -10.00Stabilizing your Blood Sugar to reach optimum perfromanceThere are so many ways to reach your fitness potential...We spend hours and hours running, riding, chasing the black line in the pool to have the best race you can. How many hors per week do you spen on fueling your body? Do you think Carb loading before a race is correct? Are taking Gues, Gells, or Jelly Beans every 20-30 mins while racing?<BR><BR>Is your Blood Sugar Stable and are you reaching your true potential?<BR><BR>These are all very valid and quality questions, actually questions I was asked 3 years ago and then diagnosed as chronic Hypoglycemic - very common amongst endurance athletes. I thought I was doing the right thing and fuelling my body the best way I knew how. That was the problem, I only knew what I knew.<BR><BR>Now my blood sugar is stable, I am racing and training better than ever and I would like to help you, the same way I was helped.<BR><BR>Simon 'Wallaby' Toozoff NC CPT<BR>ww.facebook.com/toozoff

2008-03-22T18:06:09 -10.00protein supplementsHi Energieman! What do you think about amino liqud?
2007-11-03T05:26:36 -10.00protein supplementsI took exercise phys. a year ago, and am finishing a degree in exercise science at a major university, and although you are right regarding normal athletes(that is with normal diets consisting of protein complex carbs and dglvs) this is not true for someone such as myself(vegetarians). I dont take a protein, but this is because the amounts of protein the average person needs is small compared to what they think they need, and most of this can be ingested from vegetable or meat sources. It is true that anything over the amount your body can digest will be released. I agree that in the normal scenario protein supplements are not necessary, but in a case such as mine a supplement would only help if you cant ingest enough protein through your normal dietary intake. the question regarding protein immediately following a heavy-day, is quickly answered by the fact that as long as you ingest some protein within the first hour following a workout you should be okay unless you are a heavy lifter. Carbohydrates(sugars) are what you need to worry about ingesting immediately following a hard workout. A clif bar, or anyother comparable bar, or drink with the same dietary contents, will do the job in both respects for the the first hour. within the next two you should have a substantial meal with all aspects of the food pyramid.
2007-03-08T15:36:57 -10.00Meal before raceI'm old-school and love to fill up on pasta for the 2 nights prior to any race. Then, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate the morning of the race, eat some bagels and bananas an hour before the race. Yum - ready to go...
2007-01-28T22:34:53 -10.00Glyconutritionals!It looks pretty interesting the word Glyconutrients. I'm into nutrition and never heard about that term before. If you happen to have more information about I would appreciated. <BR>Thanks, <BR><BR>Kudos from Costa Rica!!!
2006-10-27T11:50:12 -10.00protein supplementsHow about the time factor? I can sip a whey shake within minutes after hard training. Dinner may not be ready for a couple of hours. Even if a piece of chicken or fish is cooked and ready to eat, the amino acids are not going to get into the blood stream as quickly from solid food as they would from the shake, right?
