RE: [RC] Generators at 3:30 a.m. - Susan E. Garlinghouse, DVM

An interesting presentation given by Joe Pagen of KER at the AERC 
convention held in Lexington showed that grain meals showed it would be 
preferable to feed grain meals at least 4 hours before the start of a 
ride. This was based on the insulin curve after feeding grain.

The same advice was given by one of our speakers at the SERA convention 
some years ago. 

The latter might have been me (or I was one of several through the years)
and it's been in my seminar powerpoints for at least nine years or so, so
it's definitely not shiny new information anymore.  I think some of the
original data was presented by the KER group in Japan ICEEP meetings in '97
if memory serves.  There's also been good supporting data from Laurie
Lawrence's group at Univ of KY, and from Ray Geor (though I think he was
still with KER at the time).  Anyway, it's not just an abstract theory, the
data is very solid.  There's just no good physiologic reason to feed
concentrates after midnight the night before.  Let alone if it involves
waking up your neighbors who would probably appreciate some good sleep. :-)
