Clean eating, Family nosh, Sports nutrition
As with many athletes I like structure, and a clear set of rules to work to.  I believe in evidence-based rules. Carbs: 6-10g/kg body weight/day. Protein: 1.2-1.7 g/kg body weight/d. Fat: 20-30% total energy. Recovery: 1-1.5 g carbohydrate / kg body weight/30min. Hydration: 500ml/ 0.5kg body weight lost during exercise.  Eat 2 hours pre exercise.
