Fuel Up - Energy

The majority of carbohydrates in the diet should be those that release their sugar slowly into the bloodstream to maintain steady blood sugar and energy levels.  These include foods such as whole-grains, peas, beans and low glycemic fruits such as apples and strawberries. Just before exercise, it makes sense to use simple carbohydrates to support maximum energy levels and enhance performance.  A handy snack bar high in fibre and containing naturally occurring sugars is ideal to eat before or after exercise to maintain blood sugar balance.
