Right diet for speed/power/explosive athletes
« on: June 18, 2019, 01:50:58 am »
I am talking about sprinters, throwers, jumper (i.e. decathletes)...

Some say high carb-moderate protein&fat,
others say high protein low fat&carbs,
yet others say high fat-high protein low carb

I contacted the nutritionist of the new world record holder in the decathlon.. he claims the diet he prescribes to the world record holder is extremely high in protein and low in fat and carbs and also takes tons of supplements, his carb intake is maximum 50g/day... he did not want to reveal his daily protein and fat intake... i told him how is this possible, to be able to sprint/throw/jump without carbs... he says they made genetic testing and the test revealed that this athlete works on high protein...

i call this BS, i told him, the human body got the same biochemistry, if it works for him, it will work with ANY athlete, it is the food the affects the genes and not the other way around

who knows what supplements take and for what purpose(s)

i know endurance athletes like triathlon, cycling, marathon can use high fat diets but sprinters???

i am a sprinter athlete and i tried once a raw keto diet, basically i only ate raw beef, raw butter, raw eggs, water, salt, raw cheese, raw liver.. my speed decreased by almost 50% .. my 300m personal best of 39 seconds went doen to 62 seconds...when I added back some oats, white rice, fruits, honey, everything got back to normal

what do u guys think what is ur experience?

With pros, assume steroids.

Interesting you improved with carbs. What about a zero carb diet for the long haul and carbo loading just before a race?

If you want the steroid effect without steroids try bulls balls in a smoothie. There are tons of experts claiming they don't work but I know from personal experience that they are full of shit!

Almost forgot. In the 1970's when I was racing bicycles there was one guy who was winning races that would pop down a can of coke just before the end of a race. Perhaps a clean diet and using bad carbs just for races might do the trick.
