Diet and ultra running is very misunderstood, well I am confused by it or maybe just ignorant. During episode17, around 2:14:30, listen to Talk Training. Might as well listen to the whole podcast, it is a good show.

Talk Training with Marc Laithwaite an endurance coach and Sports Science & Coaching Director, shares his insight to burning fat vs. burning carbs. It really made me think about my diet and its role in my training and racing. I have been eating better and trying to reach my “Racing Weight”, but haven't really taken it to the next level. They mentioned the 40-30-30 diet and I wasn’t that familiar with it, but it is also known as the Zone diet. I think it is my next step, but how do you manage a menu like that?

The diet formula consists of 40 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent protein and 30 percent fat. According to Zone, when you reach your prime physiological zone via this nutritional formula, your energy level will increase, you'll have greater mental clarity and your overall quality of life will be enhanced.
