I am looking for an edge to make better improvements in my speed and endurance. I refuse to use caffeine or other stimulants (even if natural) to help give a boost. I wondered what diet the amazing Kenyan’s ate or even other elite runners. Some of what the Kenyan diet consists of seems to go against the grain of current dietary health trends in the US. I am going to explore other elite runner diet habits and begin to adapt some from each. I know I will have to find what I can afford, what other members of my family can tolerate as well as what will work for me. Should be a good challenge. Here is a good article about a typical elite Kenyan runner’s diet.
