I think I might try a carb refeed, maybe you can make a suggestion
I am going for a strenuous hike tomorrow and was thinking of trying a carb refeed. The day usually goes like this:
Hike up hill strenuously to the summit
Have lunch on the summit
Either go out for burgers or else just go home
Should I eat carbs at my breakfast or my usual low-carb breakfast?
Should I eat carbs at lunch or wait until the hike is over and eat the carbs after all the hiking is over?
Or maybe just tell me what to do.
I know it's not heavy lifting, but the hike is VERY strenuous. I'll be basically hauling my body weight up a very steep hill for a couple of hours during a hike that usually last most of the day.
I just want to give my system a little jolt and also experiment to see what happens. I eat pretty low carb all the time normally.
