    Hello Coach Robert,

    Thanks for another excellent article. I've read you say this before "...better recovery" associated w/ carbs. I've looked everywhere here, but can't find any more than that. Can you tell us why carbs aid in recovery?

    Thank you very much!

    John

    Good article Robert. You gave me some insight I needed. I have been really paying attention to my lean protein intake and adding carbohydrates over the weeks since your seminar at WFAC. Carbohydrates were kind of taboo to me. It has made a difference for me - a very positive difference.
    Thank you!

    From the article:

    Thanks Robert, good article.

    fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, with simple carbohydrates reserved to peri-workout meals. Additionally, ~40 g/day and ~30 g/day of these carbohydrates should be in the form of fiber for males and females, respectively.
    Any opinion on the glycemic index?

    I notice I am mentally "sharper" in the morning if I hold off a little for breakfast or I skip it entirely. I attribute this to some kind of hormonal compensation relating to lowered blood sugar levels. Any side thoughts on that process?
