The Big Picture: Food as Fuel

I try and do carb balancing. I subtract the grams of fiber from my carbs and try and have that match (or be under) my protein. I ALWAYS make sure I have at least 100 grams of carbs but I have PCOS and other health issues and have been told that carb balancing is the healthiest for me since it keeps my blood sugar level. I am finding it REALLY hard to lose some weeks. I've been eating between 1200 and 1400 and get anywhere between 120-30 mins of exercise a day. Report
Great article Report
Great information. Report
Very good article. My problem is I'm starving hungrey after I workout and that's where I fail. Report
good article except for the bit about needing carbs - carbs are NOT a necessary macronutrient. Take for example the Inuits, Eskioms. They function perfectly well on a ketogenic diet - better heart health and overall health. Recent advances in science, exercise physiology and science and sport psychology has shown that most people and almost all athletes can function at high intensity perfectly, even better in most cases after the initial down time adaptation phase. People are omnivorous and carbohydrates that come from anything other than vege, esp dark green vege are unnecessary for survival and/or high intensity exercise. Good article otherwise. Eat your fats, lots of them! :-) Report
I love reading Dean"s article. Please Dean write more it"s great. Report
Love those Dean Anderson articles! They are so well written and informative. Keep them comin'! Report
One comment I'd add is that certain long endurance activities do require nourishment during the event. I've competed in 5+ hour cycling events. Ultra-endurance events can last over 24 hours.

When I ran high school track our coach told us not to eat anything 3 hours before our training or event. When I started to cycle long enough to require food I couldn't handle it; it seems you have to train your body to send a little blood to your stomach even when your legs want it all. For a while I felt ill no mater what I ate while cycling hard. After I got used to it I found myself looking forward to a snack; in fact now I start to feel a little peckish 20 miles into most rides.
