I’m looking for people’s past experiences, or knowledge on the subject of carbing up for athletic performance.
Hypothetically, if one were following a relatively low carb diet, where they eat only meat, and veggies… how many grams of carbs, from oatmeal, or whole grain bread would be needed for optimum performance before a big game, of football or basketball?
Also, due to time constraints I have been doing jump rope for 15 min in the morning, my weightroom work around 10-11AM. And my sprint, GPP and Sport Specific work in the evening, around 7PM. I have been drinking a post workout drink after the weight lifting, but should I also be consuming more carbs after the GPP and sprint work?
I ask, because I would like to lose a lil more fat, but maintain my strength and energy levels. Which always seem to be highest on a high protein/fat very low carb diet.
Thanks, and I appreciate any advice.
