I went for a long run this morning but as I wanted to put a bit of effort in I had some sweet potato for yesterday evening and a bit more for breakfast. Though still very warm I achieved what I wanted. I never take any water so was fairly thirsty when I got home. All good now though
IL - interesting that you're sticking to the 50g and not lower. The endurance side is obviously coming along great. Whens your ultra? Whats your feeding strategy for it?
Cunning Fox - In this country as far as I'm aware we already use the net carb amounts on labels so there's nothing to deduct. Your carb counts are still low but maybe they're net carbs not total
I have been trying to be more conscious about adding salt (hopefully not to the detriment of the non lchf people I'm cooking for!) I have just done a fasted 8 miler with non of last weeks issues. Still slow, still slightly high heart rate for the speed but, boy is it warm. The question of being able to tell if your fat burning baffles me also.
