#1 FOOD For Training / Training Photos

Though sweet potatoes are high in carbs, they are ranked 'medium' on the Glycemic Index. This means that you get a long sustainable source of glucose energy rather than a large spike in glucose followed by a 'crash'. In addition, sweet potatoes have much more potassium and other minerals than a banana; which is beneficial for training with long duration and intensely. Eat a sweet potato during lunch-time and you will be ready with enough glucose energy for an after work training sesh. Sweet potatoes are easy on the stomach so you can also eat them 30 minutes - 1 hour before training. 

On another note, many of you spend the time and effort to try and eat a healthier diet to go along with your training at NOX. However, there are many health ‘BuzzWords’ out there that mislead millions of people every day when shopping for so called healthy food. 

“Buzzwords like “gluten-free,” “antioxidants” and “whole-grain” pepper the grocery store aisles, but do they really mean that such products are healthy? A recent study conducted at the University of Houston warns shoppers to proceed with caution.”
