Beta Red Fasting Fuel

Beta Red Fasting Fuel

I developed this Beta Red Fasting Fuel recipe by pushing my own limits. I’d gone too long between meals while engaging with athletes and wanted to get out for a lunch ride without bonking or eating a full meal. I've also utilized it when wanting to hit an 0-dark thirty training session before the family awakes while trying to get around spiking blood sugar immediately before training.

Brian's Experience with Intermittent Fasting

Brian's Experience with Intermittent Fasting

I can recall hearing about fasting almost as far back as I can remember, but until recently I was skeptical there was a place for it amongst endurance athletes. You see, I was always that type who would wake up ravenous. If I didn't eat within 30 minutes of getting out of bed my thoughts would be solely focussed on finding food as quickly as possible. I would also experience a similar scenario if I went more than a few hours during the day since my previous meal. For someone who loves food, this was great from the standpoint that I'd get to eat again, but also made me feel like a slave to eating. "Hangry" was an all-to-common state for me.

Beta Red Orange Cranberry Muffins

Beta Red Orange Cranberry Muffins

These Beta Red Orange Cranberry Muffins are a great pre- or post-workout snack. We substituted isomaltulose for regular sugar to make these muffins blood-sugar friendly. Like traditional sugar (sucrose), isomaltulose is a naturally-ocurring disaccharide. However, unlike traditional sugar, isomaltulose is broken down slowly and releases glucose and fructose into the bloodstream gradually. This allows you to have longer-term energy and avoid the blood-sugar roller coaster experienced with traditional sugar. This makes them more effective for fueling hard training sessions.
