Carbo loading vs banting


The Worlds largest times cycle race is this weekend in Cape Town folks and what in the lamb chops are you going to eat?

We’ve had years of carbo loading as this has always been the thinking, but Tim Noakes has gone and turned our lives into a banting eruption of cream, butter and pork belly and we’re kind of loving it.

So I ask you dear foodies, how will you be eating your Argus energy this year? The usual pasta and potato fest? Or will it be a juicy burger with creamy avo and feta?

It's really all about which side of the banting fence you're on isn't it? Do let me know what you think, it seems to be a subject of strong controversial debate.

Now if you've decided to leave your bike in the rafters, no matter!

Just look at our juicy new Love Food section, it's overflowing with luscious fresh recipes and fantastic videos, you'll be drooling all over your keyboards.

There's also the spanking new fresh and healthy Super Salads section to get all those beautiful colours into your body and there are salads for all seasons.

And if you'd prefer to kick up those heels and go out for some foodie fun, take a look at all the gorgeous events happening all around the country.

Bicycles and chocolate,
