No Carb Nutrition
July 26, 2023 6:42 PM
In many workouts in the MōTTIV training app, the nutrition information will guide you to have a no carb or non-carbohydrate source of fuel before or during your workout. This is because keeping your blood sugar stable during less intense workouts is a key to building up your endurance; you'll train your body to be more efficient with fuel and access a nearly limitless supply of energy from fat stores.
For those workouts you can fuel with a fat source, a protein source, or both together.
Some examples are:
- nut butters
- no-carb protein shake (powder and water)
- protein bars
- other low-carb/keto bars
- UCan bars*
*While Ucan bars technically have carbs in them, they are manufactured in such a way that the carbs are very slowly released, thus not causing the typical blood sugar spike and crash you would experience with a normal carb source. That's why we can recommend UCan bars, even when we're suggesting a non-carb source of fuel.
