Carb Timing Tricks

1. A GREAT time to eat carbs is in the Morning.
Each morning, your metabolic rate is higher and your insulin sensitivity
is peaking "naturally". Plus you've fasted all night so there's room in the
tank to store more carbs.

2. A BETTER time is 3 to 4 hours before exercise.

This will provide sustained energy to prevent muscle loss and prevent
the carbs from spilling over because you're using them as an energy
source and to replenish depleted glycogen from the workout.

3. The BEST time is post workout.

Your muscle are like a sponge that's been rung dry and they want to
"soak up" extra nutrients - especially carbohydrates. This meal should
contain your largest carb serving for the day. Just make sure you have
at least 20g of protein with it.
You see, when you understand how to time your nutrients precisely you'll
discover how you can use carbs to master your fat-burning hormones and
control your metabolic rate.

But if you're not sure how to combine carbs with other specific foods
or how to use it in conjunction with the right exercise -- your fat loss
could be dead in the water.
