Nutrition Website

Anyone out there know of a website that deals with nutrition for the endurance athlete? I'm looking for something with unbiased information, ie. not trying to sell me ergogenic aids and telling me everything works wonders. So, preferably something .org, or .gov. I'd really appreciate any input. Thanks all.

- Sean

You're wrong if you think anything .gov will help you with nutrition.

Buy "In Defense of Food" then "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants"

Most definitely not. I've been researching good food websites as a reference for other athletes because I'm a nutritionist. The most contradictory (and generally wrong) information comes from a website trying to sell me something related to the misleading information, and 95% of the time they're .coms.


Machka - Thanks for those links, they've proved helpful, I appreciate it.

I too question how relative/accurate/worthwhile nutrition information form the government is. Read up on the history of the "recommended daily allowances" ("Paradox of Plenty" has good history) and you'll see how far off and even faddish government nutrition info has been.

But yes, you shouldn't expect unbiased info from someone trying to sell you something.

IIRC Cptips.com has some good info.

You can customize it to reflect the amount of working out (riding) you do and it gives you a fairly accurate output of what you should be consuming.
