Carbohydrate periodisation?!? What the heck???

Instead of thinking about low-carb high-fat as a lifestyle and wholehearted change, what if we looked at your week and planned out your carbohydrate intake to complement your activity.

Rather than a low carb life, what if we had lower carb meals and then higher carb meals to fuel the activity to come. We are shifting our thinking.  Rather than a retrospective, reactive way of eating, we move to a proactive, 'fuelling for the work to come' approach. That isn't to say recovery from the activity isn't a part of our thinking; it just isn't the only thought. 

In practice, this might mean the 45-minute High-Intensity session planned for the afternoon requires a lunch that contains carbohydrates or the morning run needs a little carb-based snack before you jet off. 
The challenge we have with carbohydrates is typically on the quantity side; when we eat them, it is a lot easier to overeat, its the body's most efficient fuel source, and our taste buds LOVE IT! 

A plan based on science and an understanding of what the body requires before eating the meal linked to performance is critical. Hunger and intuitive eating are also essential factors in carbohydrate consumption; however, at least with that understanding, they aren't the only factors. With the right fuel at the right time in the right amounts consistently, you will surprise yourself with your performance improvements. The best part about nutrition is, it takes no talent to improve. You are already eating, get the timing and quantity right, and you start to win! 

Yours in health, 

Sean Cornish
