The importance of ‘Carbohydrate Loading’ before an endurance event. This process involves very high carbohydrate intake several days prior to the event while tapering... to make sure muscle glycogen stores will last the distance for energy and optimal physical performance. Bindi Sports Hydration is my go to for liquid carbs while carb loading, along with eating high carb foods. Liquid carbs are less filling to help reduce the ‘bloating’ feeling while carb loading.
