The Role of Carbohydrates in Sports Nutrition

Carbohydrates are a key component in sports nutrition, serving as the primary energy source for athletes. They are particularly important for endurance sports where the body requires a steady supply of glucose. Athletes are advised to include a variety of carbohydrate sources in their diet, such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Before an event, a high-carb meal can provide the necessary energy, and post-exercise, carbs help in recovery by replenishing glycogen stores. The type and timing of carbohydrate intake are crucial for optimizing performance.
