Conventional thinking says carbohydrates are the preferred energy source for athletes. In a general sense, that is true. Most sports involve a series of quick-burst, high-intensity actions, some over an extended period of time. Carbohydrate intake provides the fuel for this in the form of circulating blood glucose and stored muscle glycogen.
