Nutrition Recommendations

Here you’ll find my personal recommendations for nutrition.

I’ve used all of the food and supplements that you see in the following section.

Pip & Nut make small nut butter sachets that I use during long distance training sessions and in races.

I use these in longer races instead of the standard energy gels that most people use because they are higher in fat and lower in carbs.

That means you don't experience energy 'crashes' like you sometimes get with gels.

The Coconut Almond Butter Sachet is my favourite. It tastes delicious!

The High5 Electrolyte tablets are great for when you're training and racing over long distances.

They’re good because they replace some of the electrolytes you lose over the course of the race.

But they are also great to make it easier to drink water in long events. Sometimes you can get bored of the taste of water on it’s own!

I often also add the High5 Electrolyte tablets to water when I’m drinking during the day. Citrus flavour is the best!

If you need easy-to-digest nutrition for shorter races and training, then PowerGel Energy Gels are the best I’ve tried.

They'll give you a fairly short, sharp burst of energy.

I use these when I'm in training for distances up to the marathon and Olympic triathlons.

PowerGel Energy Gels come in a huge range of flavours, so you should be able to find something you like!
