I will be running my first half-marathon this weekend as a primal eater and wanted advice on my pre-race meals.
Previously, while on the zone diet, I would start slowly increasing my carbohydrate intake 36 to 48 hours before an event (triathlon or road race) by adding small amounts of pasta, bananas and sweet potatoes to my diet. Also, I was eating oatmeal every morning for breakfast, which I have now eliminated from my diet.
So, I am curious what would be a primal way to prepare for my race. I am worried that if I eat the way I used to before races, I might have some stomach problems...and I do NOT want to have to take a bio break in the middle of a race. Should I 'fat load'?
Any advice is welcome...I am not trying to win this thing, but I do want to make sure I am properly fed before the race. Thanks in advance...
