Our expert says:
Your question is very valid, because it all rests on calories. Use the following calculation to determine your calorie level add to that your training calories averaged out over a week. Split that value into 6 meals per day with at 50% carb, 30% protein and 20% fat ratio. Keep to low GI carbs and only use higher GI carbs during training and immediately after training. Consume at least 60 carb during this time – add a little protein (about 6%) – best is in the peptide format (we use peptopro). Also, make sure 2/3ds of your fats are good fats.
Weight (want to be) x 0.9 x 24 =
Add 10% for digestion of food =
Add your daily activity (120-250) depends on how active you are=
Add you exercise calorie usage, averaged out over a week – use a heart rate monitor.
If you still pick up weight cut the calories slightly – if the opposite , add a bit more calories.
Good luck hopes it goes well with the race!
