View Full Version : Need CARBS!
02-10-2011, 06:55 AM
I have been working out for years. Carbs are pivotal for energy during my workouts. Does anyone have any suggestions of what to eat that will help me sustain my energy while still staying true to the slow carb diet?
I'd say to eat some legumes and protein. Legumes have a good amount of carbs, and they keep me feeling full for a long time. How much are you working out that you actually need a lot of carbs to sustain it?

Mary I am perfoeming a typical workout isolating body parts. one body part per day. Then with every workout I do 2-3 ab exercises and 45 minutes of cardio. I get nervous that I do not have enough in my system.
TF does mention in the book being able to eat some carbs after vigorous exercise, but I think he does talk about limiting them if you have a certain amount of weight to lose or something.
There is a lot of information available about it...
I found this:
"Any physical activity you do requires carbohydrates to provide you with fuel. For most recreational activity, your body uses its existing energy stores for fuel. But when you engage in long, intense athletic events, your body needs extra energy to keep going. The purpose of carbohydrate loading is to give you the energy to complete an endurance event with less fatigue, improving your athletic performance.
Carbohydrate loading is most beneficial if you're an endurance athlete — such as a marathon runner, swimmer or cyclist — preparing for an event that will last 90 minutes or more. Carbohydrate loading isn't necessary for shorter athletic activities, such as recreational biking or swimming, weightlifting, and five- or 10-mile (eight- or 16-kilometer) runs."
It also seems like it's not just what you do all the time, but specifically what you do a week before a long race or something like that...

Thank you Mary that is helpful. My copy of the book should be in my mail box by tomorrow. Fingers crossed. I have been using the information found on Gizmodo until the book comes.

I think root crop vegetables can also be a good source for carbs.

I think green carbs are very good for health and also to maintain health. Because it contains less calories and has low carbs in it.

Hi guys, I need some basic photomanipulation help and will be happy to pay, barter exchange etc as required.
Basically I have 12 pictures mostly vintage, out of copyright I want to use as backgrounds for a powerpoint presentation. To do this I want to mute the color and add a tint sepia, blue, gray? so there is no white or near white--as I want to use white text over parts of the image.
This has proved a little beyond my technical skills. Anyone able to help?
