“. . .But carbo-loading in advance of exercise is not the most efficient way to stock muscles with fuel, physiologists now know, thanks in large part to research conducted by Ivy. When reviewing studies of diabetics, he became intrigued by similarities with his own tests on cyclists: for both groups, insulin in the blood was more effective at carrying energy into the muscles if those muscles had recently been active. â€œExercise makes your muscles more responsive to insulin, and this insulin, in turn, increases glycogen muscle uptake,â€ he says. In other words, exercise prompts your muscles to absorb more fuel â€” glucose, which is stored as glycogen â€” from the bloodstream. (Carbo-loading canâ€™t take advantage of this insulin response because it precedes, rather than follows, a workout.) Your body is actually primed by the exercise to help itself replenish lost fuel. . .
. . .Then have a real meal within two hours. â€œYou can maintain increased insulin levels and accelerated rates of recovery for about four to six hours if you continue eating,â€ Ivy says. Of course, you can also get by without such diet timing. â€œBut you wonâ€™t recover as well,â€ Ivy continues. â€œYou probably wonâ€™t be able to work out as hard on a daily basis.â€ The old guy who chugs his milk and Hersheyâ€™s syrup will not only pass you â€” heâ€™ll lap you. . .”
