In a time of energy drinks, coffee and other means of motivation throughout the day, we skip lunch. Not literally, we prepare a bagged something or grab for the same tired fast food with a health twist. Unfortunately we still hit the slump shortly after that. Our bodies and our brains run on energy – mainly glucose. This energy source plummets mid day, and renders us less productive unfocused. Bottom line, the remedy lies in making lunch count.
Now when you think health and energy you don’t automatically think Polish food. The association is that a pierogi for example is a doughy delicious dumpling that is rich in carbs – which get a bad rep these days. However, its wise to note that almost everything contains a little carbohydrates. We don’t specifically need carbohydrates for energy, but they do convert to the glucose we need, so do proteins and similar, however carbs are most readily available. Translation; you get the rush of energy to steadily get you through the rest of your day.
Most bodybuilders eat about 2-6 grams of carbohydrate per kilogram, or 1-3 grams per pound. That’s a good place to start. Endurance athletes generally need about 5-7 grams of carbs per kilogram if they’re training moderately. (3-5) It makes sense that most bodybuilders would need slightly less than that. How much carbs do you need to get through your day? How many does a single pierogi provide? Find out from one of our friendly vendors, or visit our site: www.pierogisquad.com
