I was listening to a podcast from TalkUltra and they had their training talk about the GI Diet and being a lot better for runners due to using fat stores rather than your carb ones and generally your energy being a lot better if you're planning to be running longer. As much as I'd love to be a sub 3.30 runner - at the moment that's not realistic, so i'm hoping that with a few changes in diet I can help get my existing times down to facilitate some more PB's for my autumn marathons. 

I know that it's been going round for a while and there a few threads already about it but wanted to ask if there was anything 'new'? How many runners out there are following the GI Diet? Can anyone suggest a good guide to follow (with meal ideas etc)? Has anyone noticed any 'negative' effects from following it?
