Eating carbs helps athletes greatly because it acts as excellent fuel and doesn’t let them feel exhausted and worn out very quickly. This contributes in increasing their stamina and performance. The best sources of carbohydrates that are mostly used are vegetables, fruits, whole grains, white bread and rice. However, candy bars or sodas and drinks that contain a lot of sugar should not be used because they boost energy for sometime and then the person can crash and run out of energy. Along with carbs, It is important for athletes to consume high protein diets.
