Research Objective

Project Description

The study determined whether whole foods of low glycemic index (GI) resulted in a metabolic and performance advantage, in comparison to high GI foods, when eaten prior to extended intermittent cardiovascular exercise, such as tournament soccer play.


Lentil-based, low-glycemic index (GI) foods are a comparable alternative to traditional high-GI pre-exercise meals, as they result in similar performance outcomes but improved metabolic profiles.
