Ask Kat: What Kind Of Carbs Should You Before Exercise?

Here is an example of the typical sort of question I often receive over email or Facebook. Read time: 60 seconds.

Reader: Hello 🙂 I hope I am not causing you too much trouble writing you on here. I just have a quick question about pre-workout nutrition. I am trying to decrease body fat and get lean and I was wondering what kind of carbs to have before a sprint HIIT workout or intense weight training? I read to eliminate grains so I think that means oatmeal too! Thanks! I am just wondering like whats left to eat pre-workout? Veggies? lol.

Kat: Try to avoid carbs pre workout as you don’t want to spike insulin. Which promotes fat storage. Have protein and veggies an hour or so beforehand. You can also have nuts.

Reader: Thanks! I just have a hard time preforming intense workouts after veggies and protein 🙁 and I am allergic to nuts!

Kat: Oh, well you could have another source of fats like avocado. Carbs are a non-essential nutrient, partly it’s just a matter of breaking the habit. And if you’re eating protein, green veg and fat 4-6 times a day (which is ideal) then I guarantee you will not struggle for energy beyond the first couple of days of adaptation!

Reader: So how many grams of fat and carbs would you suggest pre workout? Or are they eaten only protein/veg or protein/fat before workout? Thank you for your time! 🙂 I appreciate it.

Kat: It totally depends on your individual nutrition requirements and hormonal profile. Among other things! I’d suggest considering a Biosignature consult for individualized advice 🙂 but for now just start experimenting with different amounts. Perhaps start with 5-10 grams of fat each time you eat. Fish oil in addition to that!

Reader: Ok! Thank you so much! 🙂

    Hey Kat, I have a friend who needs to lose about 50 pounds, she’s diabetic, & has bad knees so many workouts will just not work for her. She is aware of the changes she needs to make in her eating habits but what type of workout would you recommend for her? Thanks!!
