During my Ironman training, I spent a lot of time on nutrition. In the summer heat, I was losing fluid rapidly and it became important to have some sort of endurance fuel. Standard Gatorade just didn’t cut it anymore! In fact, even when I switched to Gatorade Endurance, I was suffering massive cramps after 3 1/2 hours on the bike. I actually got fairly desperate to figure out a fix and through my research into my problems, I decided I probably was fighting the wrong thing. I had been very focused on my electrolyte loss but in reality I was probably just undernourished. I saw a full page ad in Triathlete Magazine for something called e-Fuel and after some more research, I decided to give it a shot.
