Nutrition Guidelines for Endurance Training

Many athletes choose gels or 6 percent carbohydrate solutions (in my casejelly beans) Post-exercise meal (within 2 hours): 1g/kg starchy carbohydrates with a variable amount of protein At higher altitudes, increase your carbohydrate intake by an additional 1-2g/kg. The body’s metabolic rate increases with altitude, causing it to burn more calories and rely more on carbohydrates as fuel. Increase caloric consumption to maintain your weight and prevent muscle loss. Protein Protein is often considered less important than carbohydrates, but it’s essential to muscle repair and growth. It helps offset muscle damage from competition, maintain muscle mass, optimize hormones, reduce overtraining markers and resynthesize glycogen. As glycogen levels decrease, the body uses more protein for energy. Endurance athletes should consume 1.2-1.4 g/kg of protein at every meal.
