Everyone knows the Tour de Couch requires extensive training. Athletes naturally want the best nutrition and supplements to enhance performance without compromising legal ability to compete. But what to take and not get banned?
I’m here to help you sort through all the data out there. All supplements listed here are legal and accepted by Feline Anti-Doping Society (FADS), the Feline U.S. Sleep sYndicate (FUSSY), and the Union of Couch Nappers International (UCNI).
Approved (and encouraged) supplements:
- treats from a can/bag, like Pounce or Dreamies
- buttered toast
- Fancy Feast
- things from small, expensive cans
- tuna fish
- dog food
- anything deemed ‘not yummy’ by a cat
- food that has been in the dish too long (e.g., more than 30 minutes)
Remember, supplements are to build endurance, aid recovery, and support training. They are not mere “snacks.” Most supplements are best absorbed when served on a nice china or crystal dish. All supplements are best when prepared by a freshly-awakened human.
Go fill your nutritional quota, and I’ll see you on the Tour de Couch.
