The findings from his research work have been published in several peer-reviewed journals.

As a category 2 competitive cyclist, Heiss has a keen understanding of the nutritional needs of endurance athletes. He has earned two belt buckles at the Leadville 100 mile mountain bike race and set a course record in the 2-person division at the Furnace Creek 508 a 508 mile non-stop bike race.

Facts and Figures - Dr Heiss completed the Leadville 100 Mountain bike race in a little under 9 hours. He consumed only Prolong an endurance and electrolyte drink. During the race he burnt approx 5000 calories and consumed 8 servings of Prolong at 300 calories per bottle.

Pre-recovery - Heiss talks about pre-recovery , that is preventative recovery. Many athletes separate the "during" nutrition with "recovery" nutrition. Heiss maintains that you should start the recovery process with what you consume during exercise.

He recommends that a large carbohydrate meal should be 48 hours before the event, a normal meal the night before, not too heavy. Then options for a pre-race meal including Formula 1 Sport.
