I experienced the same problems during the Blackcanyon 100k in Arizona last Febuary which has prompted me to radically change my diet and training. I have changed to a low carb diet in an attempted to become fat adapted and not have to rely on carbs and glucose for energy. I've been doing quite a bit of reading and research on the subject and what have discovered so far has been fascinating, surprising and exciting.
Here are a few of the resources that I recommend.
