This article is going to delve into why runners need carbohydrates, why runners need carbs on the run and which ones are best, and why it might be beneficial to train without food some of the time.

Finally no matter what the advertising has to say, the Tour de France, Ultra mega giga Ironmans are not even close to some of the feats our ancestors performed usually with only survival in mind rather than fame and fortune the race to the South Pole comes to mind. The answers can be classified as stranger than fiction, however, by going down to the fundamentals of nutrition, if you can call it that, and the human body and ultimately high performance is an absolutely fascinating story.
