  6. 6. Chapter 1: Juicing And Juices For Cyclists "Our food should be our medicine and our medicine should be our food" – Hippocrates Juicing is a fast and efficient way to maximize your nutrient intake. This is great news for cyclists as less time spent in the kitchen means more time available for cycling! A tasty juice provides vital nutrients for energy and also a multitude of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to give your body a healthy boost. Just as a car engine needs quality fuel to perform at its best, your body also needs quality fuel to give a quality performance. A delicious, nutritious juice is a convenient way to provide premium fuel for your body.

  7. 7. Chapter 2: Pedal power At every level of involvement, you need energy to produce pedal power. Your body's only source of energy is the foods you eat and the calories contained within those foods. Of course, it's not just the quantity of calories consumed that matters but also the quality of those calories. A typical fast-food "meal" of a burger, fries and a shake provides around 1300 calories but they are not quality calories that will energize your body and maximize your physical and mental performance. In order to energize your body and fuel your cycling performance, your daily diet must contain the correct balance of nutrients. A balanced diet contains a healthy mix of carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. I. Carbohydrates II. Fat III.Protein The complete book is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Juices-Cyclists-Nutrition-Performance-ebook/dp/B008UODOOC/ Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen
  8. 8. Chapter 3: Calculating Energy Requirements Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen An elite cyclist taking part in an extreme, long-distance event such as the Tour de France might burn as many as 7000 calories each day. The rest of us, however, can calculate our daily caloric requirement as follows: Sedentary lifestyle – your body weight in pounds x 14 = your estimated daily caloric requirement. For example, a non-active individual weighing 150 pounds requires 2100 calories daily. Moderately active lifestyle – your body weight in pounds x 17 = your estimated daily caloric requirement. For example, a leisure cyclist weighing 150 pounds and cycling for one or two hours each week at an easy to moderate intensity requires 2550 calories daily The complete book is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Juices-Cyclists-Nutrition-Performance-ebook/dp/B008UODOOC/
  9. 9. Chapter 4: The benefits of pre-ride and post-ride juices Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen Fruits and vegetables contain carbohydrates, making them a nutritious way to top up your glycogen stores before a ride and to replenish your stores after a ride. They are also a rich source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, making them extremely important in terms of promoting and maintaining optimum health. The plant proteins contained in vegetables help to promote healthy tissue growth and repair, making them of particular benefit after long or intense rides that may lead to muscle damage. I. Fruits II. Vegetables The complete book is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Juices-Cyclists-Nutrition-Performance-ebook/dp/B008UODOOC/
  10. 10. Chapter 5: Fluids and hydration Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen Adequate hydration is essential at all times and of particular importance to long- distance cyclists. Fluids must be carried on a ride and small sips taken frequently. According to Chris Carmichael, coach to cycling legend Lance Armstrong, elite distance cyclists aim to drink three to four ounces of fluid every 10 minutes. This can be in the form of plain water or a drink specially formulated for sport containing a ratio of four grams of carbohydrate to one gram of protein.

  11. 11. Chapter 6: Flavor combinations Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen Variety is the spice of life, and this is certainly true when it comes to mixing up juices. The more variety and color you have in your diet, the more nutritionally beneficial it's likely to be! Colorful combinations include: • Beets and carrot • Apple and grape • Carrot and mango • Kale and kiwi fruit • Red cabbage and pear The complete book is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Juices-Cyclists-Nutrition-Performance-ebook/dp/B008UODOOC/
  12. 12. Chapter 7: Top 5 juicing tips Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen To get the most from juicing, it's important to make juicing a habit! Buying an expensive juicing machine is of no benefit to you if you never actually use it! However, to get the most nutritional benefit from your juices, it's worth investing in a quality juicer. Other helpful tips to get you into the juicing habit include: Start with fruits that are easily juiced - good choices are oranges and apples. Not all fruits (or vegetables) yield the same amount of juice and if getting a glass-full feels like a lot of effort, you're less likely to repeat the process. Drink your juice within 24 hours - a fresh juice loses its nutritional value quickly, even when stored in your refrigerator. Unlike store bought juices, there are no preservatives to extend its shelf-life so it will quickly go rancid.

  13. 13. Chapter 8: Top 5 juicing tips Copyright © 2012 Lars Andersen These smoothies are divided into 3 categories, each designed to meet the nutritional needs of cyclist at three different times: Pre-ride juices- for rides lasting 2 to 4 hours Pre-ride juices – for rides lasting 4 or more hours Post-ride juices. The great majority of the ingredients in these recipes have a low Glycemic Index. If you can't find the fresh fruit you need for a recipe, feel free to replace it with frozen. Frozen fruits have the same nutritional content as the corresponding fresh fruits.
