Asking for my Roller Derby female client who works out 2 times a week for 2 hours and has games each weekend…. Her question is – “Do you carb load before an event? If so, what’s your strategy as far as timing and/or types of carbs (examples of foods)?
How much time before an endurance event would you suggest eating it?
Also, my events are typically in the afternoon/evening so I need suggestions for a good breakfast/lunch as well.
your client has very specific athletic nutritional needs for her training. As an endurance athlete myself, I don’t carb load but keep my diet balanced throughout my training cycle.
With that said, I do apply food timing and cycling into my training. I am a PN Nutrition certified coach and apply their strategies.
I would recommend, to find someone for your client that is honed in athletic nutrition coaching.
