Affects of Fueling from Sugar or Carbs and Affects on your body
First lets talk about health fueling when you swim -
Two great video shorts on the affects of fueling your body using sugar based diet or carb based diet in easy and simple to understand terms.
The affects of these fuels, the timing, and amounts can act as a arterial inflammation agent. Review and consider the fuels used for open water and marathon level athletic events. Consider using natural foods as an alternative such as juices, fruits, peanut butter rather than dextrose based gels and Gu pacs.
Keep up the great adventures and remember One Stroke at a Time.
Catch our next adventure kayaking for friend and training partner Doug McConnell and the A Long Swim (ALS) team as we attempt to cross the Channel of Bones from Molokai to Oahu over some 18 hours of truly open ocean swimming.
