What does the Garmin-Transitions pro cycling team use as a staple of their diet when they are stacking up wins? The traditional answer may be wheat, or more specifically gluten, but according to Men’s Journal, gluten could actually be counter-productive. In the hands of Dr. Lim the team has decided to go a more outlandish route and has completely rejected the idea of gluten laden diets. If this sounds crazy to anyone, be relieved to know it sounded even crazier to the team. “Their first reaction was, ‘What? No! We can’t race the Tour de France without pasta,’ ” Recalls Garmin’s CEO Jonathan Vaughters. But in the end, any team member will tell you – it works.
