2. Periodise carbohydrate intake

IF the injury results in a dramatic reduction in physical activity with none or minimal exercise being performed, carbohydrate intake should then be reduced and consumed around meals earlier in the day, whilst avoiding carbohydrate intake late at night when less active to avoid it being stored as body-fat. However when it becomes to the recovery phase of the injury when rehab has begun and there is an increase in the amount, duration and intensity of exercise, carbohydrate should then be increased to meet these demands.
