Some new (to me) information came across my desk today regarding carbohydrate back-loading and timing. I am going to have to expand my knowledge base a bit, but the study makes a lot of sense.
Remember when people used to say not to eat past a certain hour because it will all turn to fat? Those were misinformed times. Oh, that was the other day at Thanksgiving with your in-laws? Wow. Purveyors of arcane nutritional knowledge strike again! I hope you know that we wouldn’t say something like that. And when I say “like that,” I mean something that we cannot back up with some knowledge, however tenuous that knowledge may be.
So I am going to hit the books this week and maybe have you a neat post on carb binging at night. Isn’t that exactly what we all want to hear?! I know I’m interested.
Until then, let this suffice: if squats like Mr. Pisarenko are doing up there and a healthy amount of omega-3s don’t fix whatever is ailing you, nothing will. Or does that violate that rule I laid out for ourselves up there? #youbethejudge
P.S. – If you like to be drawn in to this sort of thing, Forrest posted this in yesterday’s comments: http://afitnesscritic.wordpress.com/2012/11/25/a-civil-critique-on-crossfit/. CrossFit can be life-changing, but I still do not always understand the fundamentalism-like fervor around arguments like this. Would you like to discuss in the comments? Would you like a blog post on it? I would like some ice cream…
