#1. Less Is More: Although your G.I. tract has the capacity to absorb 45 to 50 g of carbohydrate per hour, keep in mind this is a rate – about a gram per minute. If you consume 45-50 grams in a few minutes you’ll be exceeding your GI capacity and lose much of the benefit. Consume your calories in smaller feedings every 3 to 5 minutes to ensure greater absorption and delivery of more energy to working muscles.
