“Women & Carbs” Muscle Fitness hers articles
I read an interesting article in the May/June 2009 issue of Muscle Fitness hers magazine. The article was “Women & Carbs” by Myatt Murphy and it stated two interesting points. 1) long distance atheletes needs more carbs to fuel their endeavors and 2) men burn more glycogen (stored form of carbs in muscles) than women. This means that we women are naturally inclined to burn less carbs then men unless we are training for long distance marathons.
This means we have to make protein and good fats a priority. I just bought olives for snacks for work and avocados. I also bought ground flaxseed (omega 3s and nutrients/minerals) to go with my morning oatmeal and wheat germ.
