I've just started training for a duathlon which is in a few months time. The main problem is that I work offshore down in Africa, one month on, one month off. There's a decent gym on the ship and so training isn't a problem, but getting my diet right is more difficult.
The food isn't the best - mainly fried food, with very limited availability of fresh fruit or veg. I've noticed that I'm feeling really tired and struggling to recover between training sessions, and the most likely thing seems to be that I'm not eating enough of the right things.
Does anyone have any suggestions of food or food supplements that might help? Obviously, it would have to be fairly long lasting (fruit wouldn't even last the journey here) and need little or no preparation.
Initially I was thinking along the lines of dried fruit and instant porridge, but would it help to take things like fish oil tables, protein supplements and other similar things?
Any suggestions would be welcome!
