SCD diet means no sportdrink, no pasta, no gels, no post race pizza or beer. Kind of concerned about what I'll drink on the route and eat. Anybody have any suggestions? Guess I'll be packing everything I injest and not be able to take from the aid tables.

I wondered the same question, but a forum member Osprey once assured me the concept that carbs are needed for energy for athletes is waaaayy over rated. My son is a competitive swimmer and follows the diet. He consumes no sports drinks, no pasta, no gels and no pizza, no beer (not old enough, anyway). He swims 7000 to 8000 yards every day and in addition does weights. College coaches are calling but he likely will NOT swim in college because all they supply the swimmers with is sports drinks, pasta, TONS of pizza, and the teams often drink in their off time! shakehead

Can't the aid tables have some special items for you if you provide them? I'm thinking of something new (to me) that I'd heard of. Coconut water. It's supposed to be a healthy alternative to sports drinks. I have not checked the labels to see if they are "legal", but coconut is legal.... if they haven't added any other junk it could be great! Have fun!

That is great to hear about your son! Gives me much hope.

Guess I'll no longer be the runner known for carrying peanut butter sandwiches in my pockets and drinking Coke as my "go" fuel at mile 21! There are a few recipes I saw in the SCD book that might work. Peanut butter brownies for one....

Hi, I bought Lara Bars at Trader Joes or Sams club. SCD legal - most of them. I love the peanut butter ones. They are way convenient... So happy to hear that SCD works - I am also doing this and it is going well - I do have cravings though - must be the die off!
