Going Longer With SFuels!

Leighton Phillips is the Founder of SFuels, which was born to provide the right fuel at the right time for performance athletes and active lifestyles. While training, Leighton found that the market for training drinks and bars was full of sugar, syrup and refined grains. He knew he could produce something better with the nutrition training and the ultra-endurance racing experience he had. SFuels products support training your body to use fat and carbohydrate simultaneously, allowing you to go longer in your training, competitive racing, and everyday active lifestyle.

During our discussion, you will discover the story behind SFuels, what the SFuels provide for the endurance athlete, how to become a fat-adapted athlete, the right amount of carbs for endurance athletes, matching fueling with exercises, and the best time to take ketones. You will also learn tips to train low and race high and the best way to lose weight. Tune in to learn more!
