|My food of choice on a long run|
I've been advocating on this blog the importance of reducing sugar intake to excel performance. When running or biking most health conscious or healthy athletes still resort to the mass marketed high sugar fuel replacements. I don't understand why, during a race is when you would really want to have your nutrition perfect, right?
Here http://nutritionfacts.org/video/raisins-vs-jelly-beans-for-athletic-performance/ is a very short video I just watched on my favourite web site www.nutritionfacts.org it is fairly self explanatory that you are far better off refueling on raisins than any sugary sports refueling supplement.
