The Paleo Diet for Athletes makes it easy to refuel, recharge, and recover before, during, and after your toughest workouts

Training for endurance sports such as running, cycling, triathlon, rowing, swimming, and cross-country skiing places great demands on your body.

While we recommend that everyone eat a Paleo diet similar to what our Stone Age ancestors ate, we realize nutritional concessions must be made for athletes training at high volume in the range of 10 to 35 or more hours per week of rigorous exercise. These athletes are pushing the limits of the human body!
