Re: Paleo Advice from Elite Endurance Athlete

He may be lower-carb, but he is certainly not low-carb. Notable quotes from his interview:

- At this point I’m anaerobic and relying quite heavily on carbs rather than fat.

- For races in the 4-6 Hour range I definitely need more carb intake

- but I am burning carbs here and there and need to replenish them if I wish to continue at the intensity it takes to win the race.

- In this case, I rely on Puresport, caveman energy bars, beef jerky, and fruit, especially grapes, strawberries, and bananas. I might even use some Organic Brown Rice Syrup

- If I need a big boost late in the race I’ve been known to eat pizza, bread, or other “forbidden” processed carbs like muffins or cookies just to get me through it.

- Keep in mind that the Paleo Diet is not really a “low carb” diet. It’s low by modern standards, but these standards are just grossly out of proportion. Fruits and vegetables do indeed have carbs

- So, if I find myself craving carbs, I’ll just eat more fruits and sweet vegetables

- Caveman energy bars: Dates, Cashews, Coconut flakes, Local honey, 100% Cocoa powder
