Paul 'Cadsy' Cadman is an endurance athlete, coach, and endurance performance and nutrition coach. Cadsy is becoming well-known for his self-experimentation and 'mixed-fueling' approaches which are holistic, backed with evidence AND have been 'road-tested' by the man himself. 

We asked Cadsy what he's been using before, during, and after training.

...and 1.5 frozen bananas 

Day-to-day eating

"I eat a Carb-Appropriate diet, I would say, 120g carbs daily (using training windows to get the vast majority of my carbohydrate in) - vs. low-carb, I have cut out a lot of dairy, and have pretty much-gone pescatarian, with very little red meat.  Most of my carbohydrate comes from legumes, pumpkin & kumara. 

All training sessions are after an overnight fast I have found out that I am now definitely a morning trainer! No problem handling punchy 90 min wind-trainer sessions fasted.  I still drink a little alcohol. Around 1 glass of pinot noir or a beer seems to help keep my HRV in the zone! My longest training session is 90 min and most have intensity included."
