OK let’s be real. Everyone loves their carbs. Not only do they taste delicious, but they serve as our primary source of energy as we go about our day. So the question now becomes, when should I eat all this energy packed goodness?
The best way to look at carbs within your diet is purely from an energy standpoint. You can imagine your daily energy supply as a gas tank. You want that gas tank full in the morning as you embark on your long day. As your day comes to an end you are no longer in need of a full tank of energy.
That being said, it is recommended that you consume the majority of your carbs both in the morning and around your exercise and taper consumption as the day goes on.
