DISCLAIMER: Unlike many other blogs, instagram profiles about Nutrition throughout the Internet, this one is run by a actual Nutritionist! Fuel the Pedal is your source of science based nutrition for cycling based sports. Here, we want to distinguish between good/bad science and clarifying huge misconception on nutrition for cyclists such as: fasted training, low carb dieting, BCAAs or glutamine supplementation, caffeine, antioxidants, ketones supplementation & many other hot topic. To answer this I'll be interviewing the top researchers on each field as well as Sports Nutritionists and cyclists with real field experience on these matters. Fuel the Pedal aims to be an information filter so that you can have access to the best quality information and the most recent scientific evidence.

Dr. Nicky Keay - Bare bones in cyclists: Time to bring “Real” Nutritionists into the sport

4/21/2019
More
Competitive road cyclists are at risk of developing the health and performance consequences of low energy availability described in the relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S) clinical model. Low energy availability can arise unintentionally and/ or intentionally from restrictive nutrition, as cycling is a gravitational sport where low body weight confers a performance advantage, up to a point, until cumulative low energy availability leads to adverse clinical outcomes such as low bone...

Kevin Miller, PhD - Pickle juice and the Science behind muscle cramping

4/7/2019
More
Skeletal muscle cramps are highly prevalent in endurance sports and often affect cyclists during racing events when the intensity of physical exertion is very high and the duration is long. But there is little consensus among coaches and nutritionists on what causes them, being often associated with dehydration and sodium loss. Additionally, the wrong belief that supplementing with magnesium will prevent/treat exercise associated muscle cramps still remains pretty much alive in the cycling...

Stephen Cheung, PhD - Thermal stress and Heat adaptation for cycling performance

3/23/2019
More
Elite cyclists are always seeking to maximize training adaptations to improve racing performance and using altered environmental conditions to achieve this outcome has become increasingly popular among these athletes. Additionally, a series of potencial nutrition and hydration interventions may also optimize the adaptation to altered environments. Similarly, the use of heat acclimation to optimize performance in hot/humid performance in hot/humid environmental conditions is well supported by...

Sam Impey, PhD - Fuel for the work required. Amplifying training adaptations by manipulating carbohydrate ingestion

3/10/2019
More
Chronic carbohydrate restriction is still a popular strategy amongst athletes on the weight loss and sports performance realm. Cyclists often restrict carbohydrate ingestion for weight loss purposes, although they recognise the importance of ingesting them to increase exercise performance and also the consequences of restricting them. In the last years, some interesting research on the effects of deliberately training with low muscle glycogen reserves has emerged, pointing out that there...

Javier González, PhD - Breakfast for Cyclists: Should they deplete before they eat?

2/25/2019
More
Defining breakfast and discussing the effects of skipping breakfast and training in a fasted state on training adaptations and metabolic outcomes such as increased fat oxidation and mitochondrial biogenesis. Here we will also talk about what would be the ideal breakfast composition depending on the type of cycling race event in order to maximize performance.

Hello everyone and welcome to the fuel the pedal podcast. Your source of Science based nutrition… for cycling only. It is a tremendous pleasure to be here. My name is Gabriel Martins and I’ll be your host hopefully for a long time. First, let me give you a bit of info on my background and why in the world am I doing this in the first place. Im a Portuguese Nutritionist living and working in Spain, more specifically Madrid, I came here to study a Master’s degree in Sports Nutrition and...
