30 Bananas a Day!

A group of top Kenyan distance runners follow a high carbohydrate low fat diet. Although it appears they eat few raw foods it's carbs that fuels their running.
For lunch they eat rice and beans along with some veggies such as potatoes. For dinner it's ugali (maize flour and water) with some veggies.
You can hear all about this on the BBCs Food Programme podcast "Can You Eat to Run"
The relevant information begins at around the 12 minute mark.

Scott Jurek also appears in the radio podcast.

the best in the world know what's good and what will generate results!

Thanks for sharing the link! 

they will still eat a little milk and small amts of meat at times. But from what I can gather they really CARB UP. they put mountains of sugar in there tea and such too. 

ugg reading this makes me wanna go make some ugali!! haha. I have not made it in a while I guess i'm gonna be due for that soon.

I've always wondered what sustains long distance runners endurance. Sounds like no meat, no dairy, just lots of clean carb. Thanks for posting;)

yeah and a little secret even the Paleo guys CARB THE F*** UP before races!!!! or they use caffine or something or both!. 

cant do endurance runnign and such without carbs! just doesnt work.
