RunnersConnect Releases Latest Information On The Truth About Sugar For Runners

Jeff Gaudette, editor of the popular running blog, RunnersConnect.net shares the latest information about sugar for runners

 
PRLog - May 30, 2012 - (May 30th, 2012 ) Boston, MA -- Jeff Gaudette, editor of the popular running blog, RunnersConnect shares the latest information about the impact of sugar on the health and well-being of runners.

Gaudette released a post last week titled, "The truth about sugar for runners”   (http://runnersconnect.net/running-nutrition-articles/sugar-for-runners/)

" On average, Americans consume more than 22 teaspoons of sugar each day for breakfast. That is 355 calories from sugar and more than double the amount of sugar a person should have in an entire day.,” states Gaudette. Moreover, “Research shows that when a runner consumes high-glycemic (Gl) foods, like white bread, ice cream, or high-sugar energy bars an hour before a run, he or she may become fatigued more quickly. In a recent issue of the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sports, researchers found athletes performed significantly faster 45 minutes after eating a low-Gl meal rather than a high-GI meal. A low-GI meal would be an apple with peanut butter or steel-cut oats. Consuming the high-Gl foods an hour before a run was causing athletes to experience a sugar crash, while the low-GI foods were carrying the runners farther and faster into the run.”

This article shares tips and food choices runners can make to prevent sugar overload and perform better.
