Carb loading part 4

Carbohydrate loading should be done leading up to an important event such as a half marathon, marathon, triathlon or other endurance event where for 3-4 days prior to the event you can safely carbohydrate load as outlined by the AIS, and after having completed the event eat normally again. It might still be wise to consume some more nutrient dense carbohydrates foods such as tropical fruit, dried fruit and whole grains instead of foods such as jam, honey and muffins.
