FAQ’s: When is the best time to eat carbs to maintain my energy levels?

The timing of eating is one of the key performance nutrition principles, to optimise energy levels, comfort and thus feeling prepared for your workout.

Allow two to four hours after eating a large meal before training.

Waiting for 30 minutes to two hours should be fine after a smaller snack.

Everyone has a different level of GI (gastro-intestinal) comfort when training, so it’s important to trial what foods and timings work for you.
