Carbohydrates are essential to all diets at some point or another; they are not the enemy.
They serve as a great tool when used in the correct amounts and at the right times. They fuel our sessions, speed up the rate of recovery and aid in building lean muscle mass if we don’t over consume.
Most importantly, they stimulate the natural release of insulin, and when taken post-workout, this can be extremely advantageous. All carbohydrates set for phases 1, 2 & 4 will be consumed post-workout and not before.
Key points about carbs during this program:
- You must NOT consume direct carb sources at breakfast e.g oats, cereals, fruits, grains, during phase 1, 2 & 4. Unless breakfast is post-workout.
- On non-training days please consume carbs later in the evening.
