The standard advice has always been to take in a carb to protein ratio of 4 to 1 after a workout as your " window" is supposed to be open. While I am no endurance freak I do enjoy hard mountain bike rides of 2-4 hours during prime bike season. Can the Paleo diet support this kind of duration? It is hard to imagine having the stores of glucose to go this long on veggies and nuts. However I am giving it a try as something sounds right about it. I've started by cutting my whole grain intake in half.
Additionally, I really need my Hammer Gel on long rides. Where would this sit in the Paleo view?
