Hey everyone. I recently bought a book on Paleo for Athletes but when you read it, it's not what you thought. It states high carb for race days including things that I'd never have in my house let alone my body, gels and sports drinks etc. ... (more)

Fat is the body's preferred fuel for storing because of it's energy density. But Carbohydrates are the body's preferred fuel for burning. We can generate more energy, more quickly converting carbs than we can by converting fat. This is why... (more)

In my opinion, and based on my experiences, neither endurance nor anaerobic athletes benefit from low carb. For athletes, protein should be the #1 macro in your diet. Fat and Carbs should be fairly equal, and each person may need to tweak a... (more)

Honestly, tea tree oil and Gold Bond work really well for me. Also, wear sandals, slippers, or go barefoot for an hour or so after a shower before putting socks on. Change your socks and reapply oil & powder a few times a day.

Coconut meat. I think if you eat the meat of a whole coconut (which is not much) you get around 1500 calories. I can see someone easily eating 3 pieces a day. That would surely help.
