The question isn’t whether or not to eat carbohydrate. If you exercise to enhance performance, you probably know you need carbohydrate in your diet to achieve that goal. The question I am most commonly asked is what, when and how to eat carbohydrate. I answer by saying “put your carbs to work for you”
Carbohydrates fuel physical action and mental function. The greater the intensity of your movement the more carbohydrate is required. Sitting at the desk, watching a movie, walking your dog, household chores, all use a tiny bit of carbohydrate, but not much.
A funny question coming from a scientist, but it’s a question that I am asked all the time. Can companies really prove all the things that they claim? Isn’t it too hard and too expensive to do research?
