No I don't expect anyone literally crams carbs in Eggy, but what I mean is that you wouldn't actually need to have any carbs as part of breakfast, it could actually be eggs, bacon and mushrooms for instance not porridge and a banana, which have possibly been chosen for their carb content as much as any other reason. Certainly I have chosen a bagel and banana for my pre-race breakfast purely for carbs, I don't have that for my normal breakfast!!
I had eggs once before running and never again!
Got to agree with Dannii on the Paleo diet promotion that is trendy right now.
Why wife is doing very well with Paleo, but she isn't a marathon runner. The "experts" from whom where she got her advice aren't advocates of long distance running, so I'm not sure they'd be able to provide me with sound nutritional advice that meets my needs. So, with my dietary habits, my wife's, and my two fussy daughters it's like a bleedin' café in this place!
