WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO USE ENERGISE/ENERGISE & REBUILD LONG RANGE FUEL?

Energise/Energise & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel are ideal when you need an energy boost. Like all versions of Long Range Fuel, if you’re using a pouch, it’s key that you knead it very thoroughly before eating it, for this will help minimise oil separation. Limit your total daily intake to 3 g Energise/Energise & Rebuild Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight at the very most. (Note that this number assumes you’re not consuming other sources of caffeine). Details on how to use Energise/Energise & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel are listed below. 

EXERCISE PERFORMANCE 

Before strenuous exercise lasting < 2 hours = 1 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight 1 hour before exercise.

During endurance exercise lasting 2 – 5 hours = 0.5 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per hour during endurance exercise lasting 2 to 5 hours. Consume just a little at a time as opposed to the whole pouch at once!

During endurance exercise lasting > 5 hours* = 0.7 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per hour during endurance exercise lasting > 5 hours. Consume just a little at a time as opposed to the whole pouch at once! (We prefer using Energise/Energise & Rebuild Long Range Fuel later in ultra-endurance exercise).

*You may need other sources of calories during such long exercise. Calm/Calm & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel can contribute some of these extra calories.

MENTAL PERFORMANCE

Before knowledge work if well rested = 0.5 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight 30 minutes before you start. If sleepy = 1 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight 30 minutes before you start.

Please also note the following:

As Energise and Energise & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel contain equal concentrations of caffeine, if you use both on the same day, please consider your intake of both. If, for example, you use equal amounts of both Energise and Energise & Rebuild Long Range Fuel on the same day, you should limit your total daily intake to 1.5 g per kg bodyweight of each type at the very most.

If sleep is a priority, consume Energise/Energise & Rebuild Long Range Fuel no later than 8 hours before bedtime.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO USE CALM/CALM & REBUILD LONG RANGE FUEL?

Calm/Calm & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel are ideal for general use and are perfect for when you feel a bit worked up. Like all versions of Long Range Fuel, if you’re using a pouch, it’s key that you knead it very thoroughly before eating it, for this will help minimise oil separation. Calm/Calm & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel contain KSM-66 Ashwagandha®. KSM-66 Ashwagandha® has an excellent safety profile, but to be cautious we recommend you limit your total daily intake to 2 g Calm/Calm & Rebuild Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight at the very most. Details on how to use Calm/Calm & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel are listed below.

EXERCISE PERFORMANCE

During endurance exercise lasting 2 – 5 hours* = 0.5 g Calm/Calm & Rebuild Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per hour during endurance exercise lasting 2 to 5 hours. Consume just a little at a time as opposed to the whole pouch at once!

During endurance exercise lasting > 5 hours* = 0.7 g Calm/Calm & Rebuild Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per hour during endurance exercise lasting > 5 hours. Consume just a little at a time as opposed to the whole pouch at once! 

*You may need other sources of calories during such long exercise. Energise/Energise & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel can contribute some of these extra calories. (In fact, Energise/Energise & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel are better suited to supporting exercise performance acutely).

RECOVERY FROM EXERCISE

After strenuous exercise =

After strenuous exercise lasting ≥ 30 minutes = 1.2 g Calm & Rebuild Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight 30 – 90 minutes after exercise. We prefer Calm & Rebuild Long Range Fuel in this context because its protein content better supports muscle recovery.

GENERAL USE

Recommended general daily intake = In general, 1 g Calm/Calm & Rebuild Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per day is about right for most people. Feel free to split this amount across meals and/or snacks.

Please also note the following:

As Calm and Calm & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel contain equal concentrations of KSM-66 Ashwagandha®, if you use both on the same day, please consider your intake of both. If, for example, you use equal amounts of both Calm and Calm & Rebuild Long Range Fuel on the same day, limit your total daily intake to 1 g per kg bodyweight of each type at the very most.

CAN I USE DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF LONG RANGE FUEL ON THE SAME DAY?

Of course! Regardless of your needs, we recommend that at the very most you limit your intake to 3 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per day of Energise/Energise & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel and to 2 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per day of Calm/Calm & Rebuild versions (i.e., up to 5 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per day in total).

WHY IS LONG RANGE FUEL HIGH IN FAT, NOT CARBOHYDRATE?

For several reasons: 

The longer the activity, the lower its intensity and therefore the greater the reliance on fat for energy.

Athletes who consume more calories in ultra-endurance events tend to finish faster than their peers, so we made Long Range Fuel calorie-dense yet easy to digest.

Fat contains more calories per gram than carbohydrate. Long Range Fuel therefore contains lots of calories in a lightweight format, which is ideal when you don’t want to carry much.

We don’t think that low-carb athletes are very well served by existing low-carb products, which are often based on certain hard-to-digest types of fat.

DOES LONG RANGE FUEL REQUIRE KNEADING/STIRRING?

Sometimes - this depends on factors such as temperature. Our Keto Coconut & Almond flavour goes particularly firm at low temperatures. Regardless, it’s generally a good idea to briefly knead or stir all types of Long Range Fuel before you enjoy them to ensure the textures are consistent.

 

If you’re a Polar explorer navigating glaciers like our friend Tom Warburton, you might need to use your imagination to warm your Keto Coconut & Almond Long Range Fuel!

THERE’S SOME SEPARATED OIL IN MY LONG-RANGE FUEL…IS IT OKAY TO EAT?

Of course (providing it isn’t past its shelf life) - just mix it back up and you’re good to go!

WHERE SHOULD I STORE LONG RANGE FUEL?

We recommend you keep Long Range Fuel somewhere cool (12 – 20 °C), dark, and dry.

Environment

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?

We respect and value the natural world. We donate 1% of our sales to the Coalition for Rainforest Nations, a charity that helps governments and communities responsibly manage their tropical rainforests. Rainforests are our planet’s richest areas of biodiversity and protect against climate change.

 

We are also responsible in where and how we source our ingredients, we use recyclable and reusable packaging, and we avoid using plastic when possible.

IS YOUR PACKAGING RECYCLABLE?

It sure is! All packaging used on our products is fully recyclable – please give the packaging a rinse before putting in the recycling to keep recycling costs down.

DOES LONG RANGE FUEL CONTAIN PALM OIL?

No, we wouldn’t do that to you! Palm oil is widely used in nut butters because it helps minimise oil separation and is inexpensive. However, palm oil is nutrient-poor, and other added fats such as almond oil have more positive effects on health. Worse yet, the palm oil industry is contributing to large-scale deforestation and is pushing many species to extinction…basically, palm oil kinda sucks, no matter how people spin the story.

WHY DO YOU USE WHEY PROTEIN WHEN ANIMAL PRODUCTS AREN’T AS GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AS PLANT ONES?

Good question! We recognise that consuming dairy from cows is not ideal for the environment, so we are working on identifying more environmentally friendly protein sources to use. The issue is that whey protein is exceptionally high-quality protein (in terms of the gold-standard measure of protein quality, which is based on amino acid composition and digestibility). Plant- and insect-based protein sources are simply not as effective as whey at regenerating muscle tissue.  So, whilst for the time being we’re sticking to using whey protein (sourced locally here in the UK), we’re on the lookout for an eco-friendly protein that is truly muscle-friendly too…watch this space!
