With shoes that give you the option to change your workout on the fly, you need to know how to change your diet on the fly too. I'm Thomas DeLauer, your community Captain, and I'm giving you the breakdown on what to eat for what kind of exercise. When you are doing more endurance-based training, it's gonna be important that you focus on a little bit of a lower carbohydrate load and slightly higher fat, so your body utilizes fats as a source of fuel during endurance activities. It's called beta-oxidation.

When you are doing more weightlifting and doing a higher anaerobic activity, where you need a lot of strength, that's when you wanna focus on having a little bit more in the way of carbohydrates and slightly lower fat. Carbohydrates create ATB through a different process called the glycolytic pathway, where it's actually using carbohydrates and turning it into energy. But, you only use this energy for short bursts of activity.

Whenever it's gonna be a combination of weight training and cardio, that's when you wanna keep it kinda neutral. You focus on a moderate amount of fat to sustain you through the endurance activities and a moderate amount of carbohydrates to get you through the moderate amount of anaerobic activity.

I hope this clears it up. As always, keep it locked in here with Hylete.
