I'm training for my first ultra, and am struggling with nutrition and calories.
I've struggled with IBS/Fodmap sensitivity/SIBO (nobody can give me a full diagnosis) for years.
The two things I'm looking for advice on:
1 - What to eat during training and, eventually, the race.
2 - Good snacks for keeping my calorie intake high between meals.
I'm vegetarian, can't eat wheat, too much sugar seems to set me off (so no gels, and I have to be careful with energy bars) etc. It's a bit limiting!
Breakfast is porridge with oat milk, and banana and honey. Lunch is usually a cheese salad sandwich with GF bread. I'm starting to batch cook more often, so that whatever I have for an evening dinner can be picked at during the following day. But any suggestions for other things I can snack on etc will be gratefully received!
Also I'm very much a fan of science, so suggestions to use crystals or homeopathy to cure my dodgy belly might be ignored... ;-)
