How Carbo-loading can improve your running #running

Although all nutrients are necessary, carbohydrates are the body’s most efficient form of fuel.

Complex carbohydrates are most effective in carbo-loading and consist of your whole grains (brown pasta, rice, bread, oatmeal) vegetables and milk products.
