Your energy boostin breakfast probably sucks 🙄
Conventional wisdom says carbs give you a ‘sugar rush’ with extra energy.
Yet all-you-can-eat sushi veterans can attest that all you’ll be rushing to after 5k Calories of rice is your bed. Carbs may provide energy in the physical sense but that's very different from mental energy, which is better seen as a combination of motivation, attention and cognition.
A new meta-analysis can give us a definite answer: do carbs give us energy or do they make us tired? The answer was clear:
“Analysis of 176 effect sizes (31 studies, 1259 participants) revealed no positive effect of carbohydrates on any aspect of mood at any time-point following their consumption.
However, carbohydrate administration was associated with higher levels of fatigue and less alertness compared with placebo within the first hour post-ingestion.”
