So I was wondering if I should up my post workout carbs and maybe push in a few more meals, because my training seems to really make me lethargic and tired by the end of the day. Very cloudy headed.
I got a glucose meeter and began tracking blood sugar levels.
Normal morning - around 75.
Preworkout meal, peri-workout shake, and post workout shake (500 calories all told) and I am at 105 right after the last shake. One hour later I am at 80, then 1 hour later I am at 65.
I think I need more carbs right around there - or more to the point I need to eat balanced carbs and protein at 2 hour intervals.
On days I dont train - I float around 80 to 90 without issue.
Anyone else observe their blood sugar levels and see what their workouts do to them ?
P.S. If I just do some cardio - it does not drop the sugar levels nearly as much.
My training is strength based reps and some Tabatta sessions.
