I'm pretty much full on carbs these days. I've always avoided refined sugars but am beginning to doubt my logic. Trying to find information on it is like a minefield of medical contradiction. I think if you are exercising consistantly, sleeping and hydrating well then fuel becomes fuel, much like a car it only becomes beneficial when you turn the ignition and use it. I've always worried about insulin spikes, sugar rushes and crashes, but I wonder if that only becomes a problem if you are sedentary. I always crave sweet things when I'm on a long run, there must be a reason for it. Hope the lakes went well!
