Hence, your body needs to replace energy after exercise – stored in the body in the form of glycogen – and this is replaced by carbohydrates (fruit, energy bars, sports drinks) – within 2 hours of endurance exercise.
If you miss the 2 hour window, then your body will be upto 50% less effective at replacing the energy.
You just have to eat the good stuff – not the rubbish.
Really love the Fit Programme and this webiste. I’m a mum with two kids, two dogs and a hubby, so I’d been looking for something to help me get into shape – but I just don’t like the hard dieting clubs – and wanted something to combine general fitness with more energy and yes, losing a bit of weight is good too – but that wasn’t my only goal.
Getting fit for running seemed such a good idea – but so hard! I’m really glad I found the Clean 9 and Fit programme as it has really helped me achieve my goals.
I’m already pretty fit and play a lot of rugby etc but I wanted to lose weight and slim down too. I did the Clean 9 – but Neil adapted the programme for me so that it worked for me – I’m a tall guy, so I needed more than just the basic plan. I’ve now moved onto Fit 1 – I get regular support and help and my weight is coming under control as I build my fitness!
