I love chocolate and candy. Isn’t there any time that I can have a sweet treat?
Abolutely. Sweet treats are fine when imbibed moderately and especially when combined with the other macronutrients. You see, protein, fat and fiber (a carbohydrate), when ingested together, work together to help slow digestion. They are all low-glycemic. When combined in your tummy, even high GI foods can become low GI foods. You could eat candy within 45 minutes of your workout, but remember – empty calories, you could do better?
