Tofu is okay, meat substitutes as long as there is no added sugar and it is not starch based, tree nuts (no cashews) and seeds, and vegetables. What about TVP or Textured Vegetable Protein?

While it might sound counterintuitive to eat something before you head out to a restaurant or party, showing up famished to the event will likely make it all the harder to stick to your weight loss goals. Eating something small (about 100 calories) with fiber (two to four grams) is a great way to readjust your appetite so you can show up and mingle a bit before diving into the cheese dip. Choose a whole food to take the edge off, like an apple or handful of nuts. For example, 30 pistachios are just 100 calories and offer two grams of fiber, along with protein and healthy fats, to truly take the edge off your appetite while providing a satisfying pre-party crunch. Enjoy your mini snack with a tall glass of water before the festivities to reduce your chances of post-party weight gain.

The day before the big day, start off with the low carb template, but in the evening switch the last three meals to the meals from the carb load day. This will help start to fill you out for the next day. On game day, use the carb load day menu again to keep filling out the muscles so they'll be full and tight.

Slava: 4.0/5 June 10, 2015 at 9:50 pm The only reason why you want to train only at the MAF HR is because you are either (1) ill, injured, or overtrained, (2) recovering from any of the above, or (3) in a period of aerobic base building required by your sport.
That’s a fantastic tip! I’m vegan and so all your answers are helping me a lot A word on race nutrition: if you train your body exclusively with fats (while training every week or so with carbs so you don’t forget how to digest or use them), and you supplement with carbs during a race (but not before), your performance will be that much better: instead of using carbs to “stave off” exhaustion, you’ll be using them to top off the tank.
Am I correct in understanding that chicken is not allowed during the test? Or was this a typo?
Maybe the results of the study are not surprising to you. After all, the fact that we need to eat less and move more isn't exactly groundbreaking news. But there are a few takeaways from this research that may be helpful if you are trying to slim down.
Olive oil For different length races you need to be at different heart rates. For example, a marathon is best run 10-15 BPM above the MAF heart rate. A half-marathon is 15-25. In shorter races, it’s OK to consume sugar at a faster rate. For all races, you want to use all the varieties of fuel (sugar and fats) in order to produce the maximum speed possible. So, depending on the length of the race, you want to aim for a heart rate that is going to help you use sugar but not deplete it before you finish. I recommend this podcast by Phil Maffetone and Tawnee Prazak in endurance planet, where they discuss the theory of how to pace marathons, ultramarathons, and triathlons by the heart rate.
