You’re A Carb-Burning Machine

The differences between you and the average couch potato run more than skin deep. Fact is, people who exercise regularly burn more carbohydrates as fuel during their workouts. That's what a study published in the Journal of Physiological Pharmacology suggests. Researchers noted that someone who's new to the gym will have to train for a while before their sympathetic nervous system becomes tuned to processing larger amounts of carbohydrate fuel during training.

True Strength Moment: If you're able to process more carbohydrates as fuel for building muscle and strength, that means you'll have to worry less about the waistline increasing potential of this often-feared macronutrient. Don't make the mistake of avoiding carbohydrates. Use them to your advantage, and make your body burn them to power high-intensity workouts.
