‘Cereal Killers’ Documentary

 

Diet and nutrition are subjects that divide opinion, both on and off the bike.  I have not really talked about my views on the subject yet, however I broadly believe in a natural, hunter gatherer style of diet, lower in carbohydrate and higher in fat and protein than most.  If you want to give it a label, then ‘Paleo’ is how I try and eat most of the time.  I also understand that allowances and exceptions have to be made, especially when it comes to long rides and competitions where I will use energy drinks and other manufactured products to allow me to perform at a higher level for longer.

As a way of introducing these ideas to you, there is a documentary available for free for the month of July, called ‘Cereal Killers.’  It follows an Irish ex-athlete on his journey as he changes from a typical, so called healthy diet based on government guidelines to one a lot higher in fat and without any sugar or wheat.  The results are impressive, and hopefully it will get you thinking about what you eat, and maybe even stimulate some further research and reading.
