Strategic Carbohydrate – Restriction:
- When following the Metabolic Reset concentrated carbohydrates should be completely restricted for the first 7-14 days
- Scale back or minimize exercise during the first 7-14 days to avoid added physiological stress. Allowing the beta-oxidation Metabolic Pathways (Fatty Acid Metabolic Pathways) to upregulate and enhance the bodies ability to use Fat as Fuel.
- After the initial 7 – 14 days (dependant on signs of Fat adaption occuring) start re-introducing carbohydrates during exercise after the warm up phase for harder sessions where glycolytic pathways are utilized.
- Avoid the post exercise carb intake for glycogen replenishment.
