When it comes to getting into shape, training for a triathlon, losing weight, or body building, at least 80% (maybe even 90%) of your results can be tied to your nutrition. As my pitching coach in baseball used to tell me, if you eat junk food, you will perform like junk. Like wise if you eat good food.
I also once heard....If it tastes good then it's bad for you, if it tastes bad then it is good for you!
So, what is the best nutrition / diet to follow for triathlon training? Is it best to just stick to a high carb and fresh veggie / fruit diet? Or do you go with a high carb and protein diet for fuel?
There seems to be a TON of resources out there as to what the best diet for endurance performance is.......
My plan is to eat health food in it's most clean and natural state. Of course their will be days of In-n-Out, but I will follow the only 80/20 rule I learned in business school (be healthy 80% of the time, cause no one remembers or cares about the other 20%), plus for my life with kids and work, 100% is just not practical.
So, what is your plan? What works for you?
