What to eat? Protein & fat, but not the kind of heavy fatty stuff that will clog your gut!<br><br>
If you try it and don't want to eat heavy things like cheese and bacon and hamburger, stick with lean proteins (fish, broiled or grilled chicken & other lean meats, eggs, tofu) and healthy fats (nuts and nut butters, avocados, olives) maybe some veggies or greens or low-carb pitas/rice cakes to have a little bulk in there.<br><br>
Doesn't sound too appetizing, does it?<br><br>
I still haven't found the right formula for carbo-loading. I've never hit the wall (yet!) so it works that way, but have stood at the start puffy and retaining water, especially in my lower legs -- a bad feeling to start a race with. It's hard to change my usual diet by increasing the volume of food so much in the days before a race, even if I stick to familiar foods.<br><br>
Let us know how it goes.
