I'm just beginning to exercise after a long period of inactivity and do not have very high aerobic or anaerobic endurance. I'm pretty much pooched after 5 or 6 km. It is uphill but still. Yeah, that bad but the good thing is that I am improving. I've been doing some reading over in the training section at bicycling.com and their suggestion was to eat something sugary. What I read.
I'm trying to lose fat and don't want to be taking in more calories than I need especially calories from simple sugars. I'm thinking there's a good chance that I'll be pooped before I can actually use the energy that these sugars produce and could end up gaining weight.
I try and eat some good foods in me a short time before I head out.
