No carbs before Marbs? Barbs? Or just at all?!
Due to past scares and diets a lot of people stay away from carbs all together but what you replace them with and the nutrients you are missing out on could be a bad idea!
Basically you need to choose your carbs based on nutrition, not GI score. Also be clever about when you eat them as your insulin sensitivity is higher in the morning and post-workout.
Focus your healthy starches and sugars earlier in the day, when your body can burn them for energy, and after you hit the gym, for glycogen storage and replenishment!
Get some porridge down you an hour before the gym for some slow release energy - try Dorset Cereals yummy porridge range!
