Strug­gle to con­sume carbs on the run? A new study2 sug­gests that it’s worth per­se­ver­ing. Sub­jects who prac­tised con­sum­ing 30g of carbs (via gels or real food) ev­ery 20 min­utes on their runs over a two-week trial re­duced the in­ci­dence of gas­troin­testi­nal symp­toms by over 60 per cent. They also ran fur­ther in a 60-min time trial com­pared with their per­for­mance be­fore the in­ter­ven­tion, thanks to more ef­fi­cient ab­sorp­tion and greater avail­abil­ity of blood glu­cose.
