Triathlon Specific Diets
I started training for sprint tri’s about 7 mo.ago. I have a history of competitive swimming. My question is I am having a hard time finding a general outline for a regualar daily diet. Where do I start on what and how much intake.

There are a few books out there that can help you get onto a diet that will supplement your triathlon training. Check these out:
- The Triathlete’s Training Bible
- Triathlete Magazine’s Complete Triathlon Book: The Training, Diet, Health, Equipment, and Safety Tips You Need to Do Your Best
If you want something more person-specific, I’d suggest sitting down with a nutritionist and getting some recommendations.
Let us know what you end up doing and we’ll post it here.
