"1. Less recovery time following difficult workouts or races.
2. I don’t have to rely on carbohydrates for long rides anymore. In fact, if I’m just out doing easy long rides, I don’t have to eat anything at all because my body now relies primarily on fat, with which I have a super abundant supply, even at 6% body fat.
3. Once my body learned to metabolise fat more efficiently, I could maintain moderate levels of exercise for longer periods of time without supplementation. However, supplementation extends the length even longer. I’m less likely to “hit the wall”.
4. In general, I have this huge weight lifted off my chest not having to worry so much about what I should eat and drink. Athletes are bombarded by supplement companies, all claiming their products are better than the other. Should I use Gatorade? Hammer Nutrition? Eas? Clif Bar? Cytomax? Powebar? The list goes on and on. The answer: none of them. Nature is smarter than science. By rejecting these claims and having all out faith in the Paleo Diet, I not only save a lot of money on supplements, but have a mind at ease that I don’t need them."
