Carbohydrates and Performance

Looking for a healthy regimen that will boost your performance?

A variety of studies show that a diet high in carbohydrates increases athletic performance. The body relies on carbs for energy during workouts because it’s the fastest fuel, providing rapid bursts of calories when needed. Believe it or not, fat contains more potential energy than carbs! However, fat delivers that energy much slower than carbohydrates and that can compromise your workout!

Your best bet is a diet rich in low-glycemic carbohydrates, like whole grains, beans, and vegetables … you’ll lose weight, reduce your risk of disease, and get the most out of every workout!
