In my last blog post, I mentioned briefly that I was trying to re-work my diet a touch due to a heavy reliance on carbs. In this month’s Rowing and Regatta magazine, a twitter friend of mine featured in the nutrition section. Interestingly, unlike me and most other rowers / endurance athletes I know, she ate almost no carbs. It was interesting to see how most amateur athletes struggle with their diet in one way or another. She suggested I do a blog on subject, so I am going to do just that over the next few weeks / months. It will all be based on my experience and views only (I am not a nutritionist after all). It is likely to also have a definite vegetarian / pescetarian bias to it. But, if what I discover week-by-week helps others with their training diets then that’ll be a good thing!
