In this episode of Fuel for the Sole, we answer Sarah Hanson’s question about carbs! We dive into the science behind carbs, why they are the preferred fuel source for endurance athletes and how many grams per day you need, regardless of activity level. Meghann also gives us her take on intuitive eating, signs you may be under fueling, and some of the amazing non-performance related benefits of eating sufficient carbs.
