I am astounded…
A 5k running event where competitors need to stop half way and consume 4200kCal of donuts… That’s around 2200kCal of saturated fat. Saturated fat that makes red blood cells stick together and not deliver oxygen to the muscles. Saturated fat that blocks glycogen delivery to your muscles.

In today’s video I look at these factors in more detail and how these type of events are a disaster waiting to happen.

What do you think? Do these kind of activities have a place in an activity that promotes health and fitness? Share below.
