Our expert says:
Because carbs are the body's best source of energy, any diet which excludes carbs or is too low in total energy, will make you feel tired and weak if you exercise intensively. Try eating some unprocessed or unsifted carbs such as unsifted maize meal, Maltabella, or oats for breakfast and pasta made with 100% Durum wheat or potatoes baked in their jackets or brown rice with your main meals - these foods contain practically no fat and will not increase your energy intake appreciably, but they will provide some instant energy for the exercise. It is also always a good idea to use an energy drink (Powerade, Energade, Lucozade, etc) just before, during and immediately after exercise to boost your energy levels.
