    Have read about beetroot and br juice before, still unable to find it!

    What is your take on the Paleo for Runners? Also, I’ve read of some ultra low carb guys (one in fact, runs marathons with a diet of meat only!). I lost a lot of weight when I started running by cutting way back on carbs. However, as started running 5k’s, 10k’s, and eventually half and full marathons it became necessary to eat more carbs, even using GU during the longer races. Still, I try to keep my carbs reasonable on most days. Fruit, Oats, etc. are staples. Why are the nutrition people picking on whole wheat now? It is a scourge right now! Thanks. BJ (Indiana)

    Thanks for reading my post and for your comment. These are actually great comments and a bit hard to answer since every person is different. But I agree with you that for running, particularly fast running, carbohydrates are a must. Ultra marathoners and those that run marathons, half marathons and shorter distances at a slow pace, may be able to cut way down on carbs. But for the endurance athlete that exercises under heavy conditions were oxygen supply is a limiting factor, carbohydrates are the best bet as it requires less oxygen to metabolize each gram of carbohydrates compared to fats.

    Many on the Paleo diet do well by adding a good source of carbohydrates right before a workout or a competition. It is best to try this out during practices and master before a competition, as you have done most likely.

    What are your typical 10K times? That will most likely determine your need for carbohydrates.
