Ever wonder if the pasta dinner before race day is a good idea? Do carbs really help with sports performance? Have you tried carb loading in the past, but didn't know how to do it right?
This course has everything you need to know about carb loading, including when to do it, why, and how to follow the correct protocol to see real results.
This course is geared toward endurance athletes, such as marathoners, runners, triathletes, trail runners, and ultrarunners that compete in races and events lasting more than 90 minutes.
- Video modules
- Sample carb loading meal plan
- Fueling plan: Power up your training
- Cheat sheet: How much carbs to eat for every training scenario
Here's what some happy dietitians had to say:
"This course thoroughly explains the carb loading protocol for endurance athletes and provides several handouts/worksheets that will be helpful for dietitian working with athletes."
"Clearly presented info in an unusually appealing way. Info backed by credible resources."
But why do I need this course? I could just look all this stuff up online!
Oh, really? How many hours would you spend doing this? Would you come away with a clear action plan? Would you have a specific personalized hydration plan JUST FOR YOU? Would you get a one-stop-shop all on one website, delivered to you seamlessly? (We didn't think so!) I've taken all the latest evidence and compiled it into one easy course.
Ok, maybe I 'm convinced just a little...but the price seems high...
The price is actually less than the cost of a normal one-on-one consultation with a dietitian! But instead of a one-time meeting, you get lifetime access to it! carb loading meal plans and cheat sheets are the gifts that keep on giving. You can use them over and over for any situation you encounter.
How much money have you spend on gym memberships, exercise clothes, workout gear, coaches, trainers, race entry fees...but neglected your nutrition? Dialing into carb loading can help you go longer, harder, and faster on race day.
