Hi Fulmar,Fulmar said:My pre-race "meal" is plain chocolate with white bread. After a few years of running and racing I got to this solution for frequent digestive problems during races.
So if it works for you, it can be beneficial for running in more than just a pleasurable way (but it tastes great too )

Not to sure but it could be something to do with chocolate (dairy products) taking longer to digest. I could be wrong mind you.
I'm an advocate of a peanut butter sandwich washed down with a sports drink, before my longer runs.
A good book on sports nutrition to read would be by Anita Bean (can't remeber th title). I bought it and it has some very helpful advice.

Is that the purple book with two runners on the cover?
If yes then it's on my shelf and it has been very useful
