Carbs. How did it become so that these essential macro-nutrients are bad for you? The truth is that if you want to see the best results from your training program, proper nutrition is critical. By this I mean the proper ratio of macro-nutrients, such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats. So all of these macro-nutrients are important and you need to include them into your diet, even carbs. There are plenty of studies which advise the perfect ratio of macro-nutrients. However, I will not go into details of this because honestly, who has the time or motivation to count these or pay attention to these on a daily basis? I don’t. And why should I count them? Because what matters the most is to just try and see what works for you and you can do this without counting any specific ratio. If you feel that a protein rich breakfast keeps you satisfied longer then you should have it! On the other hand, if you workout in the morning, you will need plenty of carbs, so maybe a porridge and fruits are better choices than an omelette..
Also, if you have troubles in falling asleep in the evening (read more in here), you can try a carbohydrate rich snack/dinner, such as oatmeal porridge or muesli with fruits. Having said this, some people swear by not eating carbs in the evening. Everybody’s body is different so you need to listen to your body. At the end of the day, just make sure that the ratio of these macro-nutrients is in some sort of balance (make sure that you will eat foods from each group). Your body will need nutrients from carbs, proteins and fats.
Keep listening to your body,
