If its a slow aerobic workout below my aerobic heartrate threshold I eat less carbs. Generally I'm about 100-150g. I'm a 145lb male. You might also consider testing carbs to see what works for you. There has been recent research that shows people's blood glucose response can be very different to the same foods depending on their gut makeup. Robb Wolf's latest book Wired to Eat goes over this but to test you essentially eat a 50g net carb serving of something and then test your blood glucose response after wards. He suggests at 1 and 2 hours but honestly I would at least add the 30 min mark. So far I've tested bananas, white rice and potatoes. Bananas moon shot my blood glucose in the first hour so I won't eating those anymore. I'm going to test sweet potato, lentils and some other beans. Whichever one gives me the most favorable blood glucose responses will be my carbs of choice.

Am I overlooking something important? What did you decide to do Julie, since this post is from a while ago?
