  1. Excellent excellent video! Thanks guys. Would love some examples of what a full day of balanced healthy proteins would look like. I'm guessing 6 x 20g or 4 x 30g (pending weight) sounds about right. Eggs for brekkie, chicken for lunch, fish for dinner, whey shake in between or dairy?

  2. Elephant avoided. Someone should have asked 'At what rate might a zwift synthesise a trainerroad, and what would the performance effects of consumption be?'

  3. As a vegan, i cant hear the word "protein" anymore 😁
    Unfortunate there is still this idea plant protein is incomplete or lower quality. This myth stems from an article in the fashion magazine vogue from the 70's. The author later retracted thus claim but the myth lives on. Lots of these studies are also based on animal studies with uncooked protein sources. And its 2022, there are plenty of vegan versions available for yoghurt, eggs, meats etc.

  4. I would like to comment on protein intake.. for me, I found it made it a lot easier to get the protein in by including tuna every day for breakfast.. having a good protein source at Every. Single. Meal.

  5. Hi team TrainerRoad! Great content as always. I’ve learned that the body maximum protein intake per serving is 25grams. So eating 40grams in one meal, doesn’t work towards your 1.8 gr per kilo example. Correct me if I’m wrong 😊

  6. I get really excited when strength training and protein is discussed at any point, but especially in the endurance world. I’ve been a competitive female bodybuilder for 12 years so this “diet” has been my life. Both factors though (lifting and eating) helped with jumping into the endurance world so I appreciate the deep dive :). I love the insights here. Thank you so much.
