    Perhaps you shouldn't mess with it if you've got things where you want them, but, generally, I constantly 'mess' with my training - up to and through the last minute. I don't know how else to learn...

    I use the highest quality cream i can find at home, but in a coffee shop, I just ask for heavy cream - S'bucks, Carabou and almost all indys have it, even if it is not out on the bar. Quality is...

    I find extra carbs for that sort of event are only needed if you're set on maximizing performance, and, then, only in the days leading up to the event. Training on lower carbs or even in Ketosis is...
  4. Vaugely remeber something about hominy being better than plain corn...

    I remember a while back reading that the nixtamalization process denatures some of the bad stuff and so makes hominy (and so grits) and ok primal choice while corn is clearly not. I realize the...

    Jenry Hennings - Thanks for the advice! I don't count on aid stations except for water and prefer to carry really concentrated maltodextrine in one bottle (or drop bag) and mix it with water in...
  6. Advice/thoughts/recomendations - fueling for back to back endurance events

    Have an upcoming weekend with a 50m gravel bike race on Saturday and a trail marathon on Sunday. The bike course has some serious climbs - this, combined with the inefficient transfer of power on...

    Saw somewhere that the commercial pressure cooking of canned beans is more effective denaturing the bad stuff than soaking and cooking yourself. just rinse them very well. sounds plausible - don't...

    Yes! The more I see and experiment, the more I agree... Depending on diet and lifestyle, there may be some specific vitamins and trace minerals where supplements MIGHT help, but, for the most part,...

    A beer or two each night wouldn't kill you either and somehow seems to fit into the Australian National Ultimate tournament.

    At the risk of drawing a great amount of fire....

    I'd eat clean/primal leading up to your event and then splurge on (non-wheat and non-soy) carbs over the three days. It won't have any long-term...

    It is extreme... I'm not saying that one piece of fruit will kill you, but it is bad. Doesn't mean you shouldn't have some fruit if you want some, just don't kid yourself that it is good for you. I...

    depends... if you're trying to lose weight, 1 piece is too much. Hate to throw up such a trite answer, but it took me a long time to figure that out. 80 lbs later, I'm sure of it.

    After over a year of success with it, VLC stopped working for me (only as far as fat loss).

    I added back in some carbs (even rice and some oats). I continued to strictly avoid sugar, wheat (and...

    Extra Virgin CO vs MCT Oil?

    (1 think) I notice a difference in energy and fat loss between use of CO and MCT Oil in my coffee, The MCT seems much more effective, just not as tasty.

    My assumption was that MCT oil was just...

    Personally, I agree with those emphasizing time over distance, but my .02, based on VERY limited experience, is that running 4-5 times per week is way too much. I missed any article of Marks where...

    @Danielfire - didn't ditch the sprints and never even thought about it. They have really helped with breathing and motion/efficiency, they're quick and easy to add in to a workout and they help me...

    I absolutely agree Starch will not directly build muscle, but doesn't starch provide cheap energy that can help you work out longer/harder so that you can build more muscle (with protien and fat). ...

    Hey, the 30BAD folks avoid added sugar, stay away from grains and eat real food, not "food products". That part sounds good. I happen to believe they'd benifit from some protien and a little less...
