Imagine, knowing exactly how you should be fueling your body before, during, and after every workout in order to optimize your training and PR your next race.
You wouldn’t have to guess about what the best pre-exercise meal is. Instead, you would know when you should be eating more carbs, and when you should be eating less carbs or even exercising in the fasted state.
You wouldn’t bonk during long workouts. Instead, you would have a clear plan that tells you exactly what and when to be eating and drinking.
You wouldn’t have to scramble around for food and end up eating some random thing. Instead, you would know what foods you need to rebuild your body after a workout.
