Real food and sports nutrition products are pretty similar except in one important way: The packaged products are very dry while real food contains a lot of water. In this new video from Skratch Labs, Lim demonstrates the difference between sports bars that contain 3-10% water by mass and the rice cakes found in Feed Zone Portables, which contain 60-80% water by mass.
Dr. Allen Lim found that real food and sports nutrition products are pretty similar except in one important way: The packaged products are very dry while real food contains a lot of water.
A Feed Zone reader Tony H. asked, “For the past few months, I’ve adopted a more low-carb approach. I don’t mean a ketogenic diet, but I am limiting my carbs…Are there recipes in your cookbooks that are targeted toward low-carb athletes?”
In this new video from Skratch Labs, chef Biju Thomas demonstrates how to wrap a round portable snack like Basic Baked Eggs.
This video The Man That Feeds the Peloton shows Biju explaining how he’s not just cooking for riders or individual teams anymore. The Tour of California asked Biju to write up the menu for ALL the teams at the race. The Feed Zone approach is reaching more pros than ever.
In this video from Skratch Labs, Allen Lim demonstrates how his rice cake wrapping technique can wrap, well, pretty much any snack.
Slowtwitch caught up with Dr. Allen Lim recently and asked him, in so many words, why he has devoted so much time to working with athletes on their nutrition. During the discussion, Lim reveals the biggest mistake most triathletes make: drinking their calories.
In this video, Sheila Taormina, 4-time Olympian, gold medalist, triathlon world champion, and triathlon hall of famer, talks about racing Michellie Jones, Joanna Zeiger, Leanda Cave, Barb Lindquist, Emma Snowsill, Laura Bennett and how they raised the level of competition in women’s triathlon.
At Interbike last week, one of the VeloPress staff paid a visit to the Skratch Labs booth where Feed Zone Cookbook author Allen Lim was chatting with a bike shop retailer. He stood behind Allen, waiting to say hi, while the retailer thanked Allen for the book saying, “Your book changed my life! People ask me what I’ve done differently this year to make such a big difference in my racing, and I tell them I bought a cookbook!”
Pro cyclist Julian Kyer shares how he eats healthy while traveling using a mini “travel kitchen” he developed with Dr. Allen Lim.
When Sheila Taormina decided to try to make history by qualifying for the Olympics in a third sport, she — like many Olympians — had to make big sacrifices to follow her dream.

In short, Lim graduated with a doctorate in physiology and left the lab to work with pro cyclists. What he found was shocking: professional cyclists riding Grand Tours and eating breakfast cereal for dinner. They knew little about sports nutrition and nothing about cooking.
Sheila Taormina talks about preparing for two career-making races in one season.
Allen Lim and Biju Thomas have helped overhaul the way several professional cycling teams approach nutrition. During their time cooking at the Tour de France, Lim and Thomas discovered that one of the favorite dishes after finishing a stage was Lim’s Chicken Fried Rice
