What do you reckon are the best Best foods for keeping blood sugars stable before and during runs of 10 -26.2 miles . I'm not diabetic but I find on occasion my blood sugar levels drop and on 2 HM I've had to pull out . I try to eat well most of the time . Before long runs I will eat something protein based fro lunch and dinner is pasta based keep hydrated with water . In the morning porridge with dried fruit and if it's more than 13miles toast and nut butter. I'm carrying electrolyte water - tailwind. Today by mile 9 even though I took a gel at mile 5 I became really shaky again . I kept sipping my electrolyte drink and made it in one piece back home 10.5 miles. What else could I try ? I don't like sports drinks or gels particularly . Should I cut out all added sugar ?
