HC, I've got a question regarding carb loading and or the balance regarding carbs vs. protein.
I've trained myself to keep the carb limit low regarding my general diet, but since I've been going on longer runs, I've noticed my sweat has an ammonia odor to it.

I googled it and found it's due to my body burning protein for energy once the carb energy has been depleted. Do you have any advice on this?
