Oh My...

Just came across this total gem. I realize that you can't believe everything you read on the internet, I do. But I've read enough (and learned from other reliable sources) to know that this cat is spot on. Even the eating protein before bed part. Plus, I got the link from a nutritionist I trust. Yes, what he's telling us sounds like a lot of work, and it is. But riding your bike is hard work too, no? Why wouldn't you go for that extra edge?

In other news, I learned today that taking calcium and iron at the same time inhibits the iron absorption. Drat. This is the liquid iron supplement I take, btw...thank you Katie for recommending!



I should add...that I am also getting tested for anemia by my doc, just to be certain. I have been anemic in the past (common in women endurance athletes) and had success with a supplement. In the meantime, I am not taking a full dose...and am adding more lean red meat into my diet. Important! Real food is always better than any supplement.
