Get a gut re­ac­tion

Runner's World (UK) - - Nutrition -

This may sound like the worst sports-nutri­tion ad­vice you’ve ever heard: a new study2 sug­gests that train­ing im­me­di­ately af­ter eat­ing a meal can help your gut make favourable adap­ta­tions to en­durance train­ing. The ben­e­fits in­clude re­duced bloat­ing dur­ing run­ning and an in­creased ca­pac­ity to ab­sorb and de­liver car­bo­hy­drate. The study au­thor, Pro­fes­sor Asker Jeuk­endrop, con­cludes that this type of ‘nu­tri­tional train­ing’ strat­egy may re­duce GI prob­lems and im­prove run­ning per­for­mance.
