When to Eat Carbs Before and After Workouts

Timing is everything when it comes to carbohydrates. Learn how Amber and Andrew Riposta fuel with carbs throughout their day.

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

Here’s how Amber Dodzweit Riposta and Andrew Riposta suggest you fuel with carbohydrates:

  1. Glucose: Stack pre- and post-workout. Keep these carbs as simple as possible.
  2. Fructose: Consume throughout the day, with less focus pre- and post-workout. Keep consumption low, which helps ease digestion.
