These personalized meal plans are specially designed for those who train for endurance sports events lasting more than 90 minutes, such as marathons, half-marathons, triathlons, cycling challenges, etc. To increase your performance, follow these meal plans for the 3 days leading up to the event.
Carbohydrates (carbs) are the main source of energy for muscles during extended periods of exertion. By carb-loading before your competition, you maximize your carbohydrate stores of glycogen in the muscles and liver.
These stores will support a long and intense effort as well as maintain a good pace throughout the race. A recent study showed that carb-loading before a marathon can improve performance by up to 13%*!
In order to effectively carb-load, 70 to 80% of the energy should come from carbs. Yet, 88% of marathon runners fail to consume the right amount, for lack of proper information or tools. Our meal plans are the solution.
Our meal plans are effective and easy to follow. We provide the tools, information, and support necessary to successfully carb-load to boost your performance without gastrointestinal issues!

“I used the Carb-loading meal plan before my first Olympic distance triathlon and I had plenty of energy all the way through. The menu is simple to follow and provides great results. I recommend it to my friends!”
“I love SOSCuisine’s Carb Loading Meal Plan, because they make the carb loading process simple. Their menus take into consideration your body type, age and sex and then give you a meal plan that you can adapt to suit your tastes. They allow you to eliminate foods you don’t eat such gluten. The meal plans are also lower in fibre, so you will reduce your chance of having gas, of feeling bloated and diarrhea (runner’s diarrhea is not fun).”Pearle Nerenberg, M.Sc. R.D Sports Dietitian
