You can find him on here and add as a friend. Otherwise go to his website http://www.thefruitarian.com/. He has loads of information on here about his fueling for ultra-marathons, the thing is he usually has a support team to cut up melon for him at aid stations and juice oranges etc. I think generally he doesn't eat a lot of dates but when running ultras he has no choice.
I generally don't run anything above 10k right now but it seems from other people's experience that fruit alone is a great fuel source for ultra-marathons, the struggle will be getting enough calories in consistently throughouth the race. The 'recipe' for datorade couldn't be simpler, put pitted dates in a blender with water about an inch above the dates . Then blend! You can add as much water as desired to make it digest well, some people soak the dates in the water overnight.
Well done Rich that's awesome! Onwards and upwards
I run ultras, and I've been eating as a veggie and then vegan up to this point, toyed with raw on and off, but now fully committed to it. On my ultras (I run from 26-36 milers most weekends, and 50-100 milers 6+ times a year) I used to eat porridge for brekkie and take vegan biscuits and crisps with me, washed down with soya milk......
Now I am committing to 80/10/10rv, what would you suggest I take?
I was thinking of a huge banana fest for breakfast, possibly made into a smoothie with some celery, and taking a few bananas, clementines, dates and a couple of smoothies with me. But as I will need to carry all this (checkpoints don't generally have fruit available) I'm concerned at how I will sustain myself over 8, 12, 15, 24+ hours of running. The 100 milers I can stash food in advance, but not at any of the shorter ones.
I've seen 'Date-o-rade' mentioned here and was wondering if I could have the recipe? Any suggestions are MOST MOST welcome!
Thanks all! x
Cucumbers don't count Helen i'm afraid to say, they're a fruit whereas greens are leaves. Spinach is a good one because of its mild taste and juiciness, I literally can't get enough of it, mmmmm. If that doesn't work then green smoothies are the way forward.
Victor - 2 nights before a race I eat exactly what I usually eat, lots of fruit and greens. I wouldn't change anything before a race, that's a general rule no matter what diet you're on. Just make sure you're eating plenty of calories in the build up to race day. Go get em'
