TOP TIPS FOR CARBOHYDRATE CONSUMPTION
• During light sessions low-sugar carbohydrates (e.g. wholemeal bread) are a good option; this will avoid gaining body-fat.
- During high-intensity or double sessions, higher-sugar foods (white rice, white bread) are a better option to help fuel you.
- After weigh-ins, high-sugar carbs (jaffa cakes, white bread, energy drinks) should be consumed regularly; this is the best way to fuel your muscles.
- Carbs are the most important supply of energy for your muscles. Do not become carbaphobic!
