I'm a pro footballer (soccer) in Australia and have been Paleo for approximately 3 months now. Am as lean as ever, fit as ever and enjoying the lifestyle in combination with my training. I have one problem though. I still have a fear of being glycogen depleted going into matches as obviously football is an extremely glycogen depleting activity, especially at a pro level and I'm afraid of crashing late in games and my repeated sprint ability decreasing. Thus, in the lead up to games I turn to my old ways and consume grains/pasta/rice etc.
Can anyone put my mind at ease or tell me if their are any other ways to fuel glycolitic activity?
