What to eat in the hills and in the city to maximise alpine climbing performance.

Cam is a transplanted Canadian and a member of the Auckland section. He holds a PhD in exercise physiology and is currently a research fellow working in nutrition at the University of Auckland.  
He will review basic sports nutrition for endurance athletes and then look at how to apply these principles to an alpine environment. Topics will include the carbohydrates vs fat to fuel long days and protein how much, when and why. Cam will also discuss some of mountain food available in NZ and their pros and cons.
