I'm an elite cyclist changing lifestyle during the off season. I've been primal for about 5 weeks. Poor cycling performance has lead me to performing some tests. Trial 1 - Cycling with 10% sugar in water bottles, - Outcome poor performance,... (more)
I have been cycling my calories for the past 2 weeks and i have been in a hypercaloric state. Last night i kind of binged with natural peanut butter and cottage cheese and my macros for the day were P:310 C:90 F:187 with roughly 3000-3100... (more)
Hello, I am searching for ways to hack and improve my general state, weightloss and how to provide enough energy for daily activities. At this very moment im feeling tired on the bike, exhausted and can't seem to find the power that i used... (more)
So I'm an injured (fat) cardio bunny. I've been running 10-20 miles a week for the last 20 months, including 3 half marathons. However, 3 weeks ago, I wrecked my shoulder and my consultant has strongly advised me that I won't be able to run for at... (more)
Hi, Everyone. Prior to becoming Paleo, before I found out that I am highly wheat and soy intolerant (as well as dairy), I used Hammar Nutrition's energy Gel packs - Chocolate flavor because I also have adverse reactions to citric acid. Anyway,... (more)
I want to try carb cycling, but I'm unsure of what carbs to indulge in on high-carb days. Just paleo-approved ones, yes? Can it be a go-to-town-on-fruit day, or would that be mucking with insulin too much? I'm also unsure of how high to go,... (more)
This summer I am doing a group charity bicycle tour across the U.S., riding 49 days from Seattle to Washington D.C. It's a fantastic deal as our fundraising minimum includes sag support, gear-schleppage, 3 meals a day and snacks, and lodging at... (more)
Boiled eggs sounds like a good fit. Pretty easy request for breakfast, and carry a few for lunch. Bacon from breakfast should also keep till lunch time. Also carry some coconut oil for added fat.
I've been doing Starting Strength regularly (sometimes just 2x per week) for 5.5 months. I've seen huge gains and am extremely happy with the program. My question is whether I should move on to a new/more advanced program, add in my own assortment... (more)
My suggestion would be to continue as you have been doing as your have been gaining lots of size and strength. I would however add a few caveats; If your primary focus is biking make the strength training more like 'practice'. For instance... (more)
I am just starting to up my training on the bike and I need some help with nutrition. I am planning on doing some bigger event rides next year, one 60k and one 100k. I am fine with the training part of it, but the more I read about how to eat... (more)
I am in Ketosis (checked with Ketostix). For the past two and a half weeks, I haven't really been sleeping. I probably REM cycle a whopping 5 hours every night, sometimes 4, and occasionally 6-7. When I wake up I still feel a bit tired, but I'm... (more)
Hi All, What are people's experiences with carb cycling either with athletic performance or general level of function? On one hand 'switching things up to prevent habituation' and hormesis argument sound good. On the other hand, 'avoid poisonous... (more)
While I did very well on VLC Paleo, my Athletic Performance and Recovery both improved by introducing Tubers post heavy workouts. I maintain VLC Paleo on non-heavy days.
Cardio isn't strictly paleo, but I've got to get to work somehow. I cycle a bit, commuting (at speed) around 20 miles a day. I try to limit my carb intake, generally it's less than 30g (about 6-10% of my daily intake). The rest is split between... (more)
Hey guys I am in my mid twenties, obese, carry significant fat around my abdomen and after reading the paleo solution, Why we get fat, Primal blueprint and Atkins I have come to the conclusion I need to do a few things to reverse my body... (more)
I am a Paleo eater of 4+ months and love it! I am currently training for a 2 day double-century bike ride (200miles in 2 days). I only ride on the weekends and do crossfit style workouts during the week. I am really trying to stay Paleo even on... (more)
Just wondering- I've done LOTS of commuting by bicycle, and I am beginning to think it's the same as chronic cardio, as least as far as my body is concerned. After going paleo, I really embraced stochastic exercise, but it seems like an everyday... (more)
does anyone use protein cycling? i've heard it* has longevity/cell repair benefits (similar to caloric restriction but way less hassle and you don't look like a skeleton) and is used by some weight lifters to actually increase the effectiveness... (more)
A friend of mine recently broke his clavicle when he fell off his bicycle, and I almost got hit by a car today while I was riding through a green light. So it got me thinking. Anybody have hard data on bicycling injury rates? Or know about the... (more)

Hi there! I am an endurance enthusiast and always want to eat REAL food. The paleo bar is fairly new and still trending. Most I have seen contain higher protein than carbs. As an athlete.. we mostly want complex carbs before, during, and... (more)
Currently I am drinking just one cup of upgraded bulletproof coffee a day. Is there any benefit to cycling off on say Saturdays and Sundays? Currently I haven't had any since Friday morning (12:30am had to work late one night) I feel mostly fine... (more)
I am a keen cyclist and after adopting the Paleo diet changed my training routine dramatically. I now partake in a 45 minute ride aiming to keep HR between 60 - 75% MHR and a single sprint session. I also do a HIT session once a week as well.... (more)
I think variation (of course withing a paleo/evolutionary framework) is somewhat important. Intermittent fasting, carb-cycling, variation in exercise, frequent change of wives (the latter is a joke!), ... Assuming that our ancestors did not have... (more)
On Lean Gains/Carb Cycling, if I eat low carb prior to my weight lifting session then I up my carbs , let's say 3 medium potatoes. Will it prevent gluconeogenesis ? Will my muscles use amino acids for fuel ? EDIT: If I have my biggest meal post... (more)
