(HealthDay News) -- Eating a proper diet, including enough
healthy carbohydrates, can help prepare your body for lifting
weights -- or what professionals call resistance training.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends these healthy
carbohydrate choices for people focused on resistance training:
- Whole-grain foods, including quinoa, brown rice, whole wheat
bread and whole wheat pasta.
- Plenty of fruits.
- Dairy foods, including milk and cheese.
- Sports bars and sports drinks.
You should consume between 2.3 and 3.6 grams of carbohydrates
per pound per day, the academy says.
