Sugar - How long does it take to work?
I'm curious about this for two reasons.
Firstly, when riding I'm never quite sure when to start to refuel. I try to eat something every 30 mins or so, but then I think I tend to overload a bit just to make sure. I've only bonked once, but it's an experience I never want to repeat.
The second which made me remember to write this is we just had a birthday afternoon tea at work with two cakes. This week (new years resolutions huh) I've been careful with food and haven't eaten anything nasty with no bread or refined sugar. I decreased my cake input by sharing half of each piece (total one piece) but only 5 minutes later I had a massive sugar rush. I feel a bit shaky and jittery with funny headachy feeling and maybe feeling a bit hot. Am I just more sensitive to sugar now I've been off it for a bit?
