Carbohydrate feeding has been shown to enhance endurance performance. During exercise of 2 h or more, the delivery of carbohydrates to the muscle is the crucial step and appears to be limited by intestinal absorption. It is therefore important to identify ways to overcome this limitation and study the positive and negative effects of chronic carbohydrate supplementation. There is evidence that intestinal absorption can, at least partly, be overcome by making use of multiple transportable…

A Step Towards Personalized Sports Nutrition: Carbohydrate Intake During Exercise
TLDR
These new guidelines may replace the generic existing guidelines for carbohydrate intake during endurance exercise and take into account the duration (and intensity) of exercise and advice is not restricted to the amount of carbohydrate; it also gives direction with respect to the type of carbohydrate.
The new carbohydrate intake recommendations.
  • A. Jeukendrup
  • Education
    Nestle Nutrition Institute workshop series
  • 2013
TLDR
Findings resulted in new recommendations that are dependent on the duration and intensity of exercise and not only specify the quantity of carbohydrate to be ingested but also the type.
Training the Gut for Athletes
TLDR
It is clear that “nutritional training” can improve gastric emptying and absorption and likely reduce the chances and/or severity of GI problems, thereby improving endurance performance as well as providing a better experience for the athlete.
MULTIPLE TRANSPORTABLE CARBOHYDRATES AND THEIR BENEFITS
TLDR
During prolonged exercise, the performance benefits of carbohydrate ingestion may be achieved by maintaining plasma glucose concentration and high rates of carbohydrate oxidation by using a combination of carbohydrates that use different intestinal transporters for absorption (multiple transportable carbohydrates).
Effects of a Short-Term “Fat Adaptation with Carbohydrate Restoration” Diet on Metabolic Responses and Exercise Performance in Well-Trained Runners
TLDR
It is suggested that a short-term (six days) FACR diet may facilitate increased fat oxidation and submaximal exercise economy but does not improve 5 km-TT performance.
Periodized Nutrition for Athletes
TLDR
In this review, an overview is given of some of the most common methods of periodized nutrition including ‘ training low’ and ‘training high’, and training with low- and high-carbohydrate availability, respectively.
Oral Carbohydrate Rinse: Placebo or Beneficial?
TLDR
Brain imaging studies have identified brain areas involved, and it is likely that the oral carbohydrate mouth rinse results in afferent signals capable of modifying motor output, independent of taste.
Gut-training: the impact of two weeks repetitive gut-challenge during exercise on gastrointestinal status, glucose availability, fuel kinetics, and running performance.

  • 2017
TLDR
Two weeks of gut-training with CHO-S and CHO-F improved gastrointestinal symptoms and running performance compared with PLA, andCHO-S also reduced malabsorption and increased blood glucose availability during endurance running compared withPLA.
Carbohydrate supplementation stabilises plasma sodium during training with high intensity
TLDR
Sole carbohydrate supplementation seems to stabilise plasma [Na+], because that should lead to a recovery of the blood and plasma volume under CHO, and in contrast, this was found during exercise with Plac.
Dietary Recommendations for Cyclists during Altitude Training
TLDR
The physiological stress of altitude exposure and training will be discussed, with specific nutrition recommendations for athletes training under such conditions, and the risk of increased oxidative stress under hypoxic conditions and antioxidant supplementation suggestions are presented.

Carbohydrate feeding during exercise
TLDR
Carohydrate ingestion can improve endurance capacity and performance and it has been suggested that using multiple transportable carbohydrates may enhance fluid delivery compared with a single carbohydrate and may cause relatively little gastrointestinal distress.
Carbohydrate and exercise performance: the role of multiple transportable carbohydrates
  • A. Jeukendrup
  • Chemistry
    Current opinion in clinical nutrition and metabolic care
  • 2010
TLDR
The increased carbohydrate oxidation with multiple transportable carbohydrates was accompanied by increased fluid delivery and improved oxidation efficiency, and thus the likelihood of gastrointestinal distress may be diminished.
Oxidation of Carbohydrate Feedings During Prolonged Exercise
TLDR
The most remarkable conclusion is probably that exogenous CHO oxidation rates do not exceed 1.0 to 1.1 g/min and there is convincing evidence that this limitation is not at the muscular level but most likely located in the intestine or the liver.
Nutritional manipulations before and during endurance exercise: effects on performance.
TLDR
Ingesting CHO during prolonged, moderate-intensity (60-85% VO2max) exercise can improve performance by maintaining plasma glucose availability and oxidation during the later stages of exercise and by supplying CHO from the small intestine during exercise itself.
Glucose ingestion during endurance training does not alter adaptation.
TLDR
It is concluded that glucose ingestion during training does not alter training adaptation related to substrate metabolism, mitochondrial enzyme activity, glycogen content, or performance.
Legal Nutritional Boosting for Cycling
TLDR
Several nutritional strategies have been used in cycling to improve performance, but recent studies have suggested that recommendations may have to be adjusted to take into account recent findings.
The effect of galactose supplementation on endurance cycling performance
TLDR
Ingestion of an 8% Galactose-only solution is detrimental to endurance performance compared with equivalent volumes of iso-osmotic solutions containing 50% galactose/50% glucose or 80% glucose/20% fructose.
Daily training with high carbohydrate availability increases exogenous carbohydrate oxidation during endurance cycling.
TLDR
Changing total daily carbohydrate intake by providing or withholding carbohydrate during daily training in trained athletes results in differences in selected metabolic adaptations to exercise, including the oxidation of exogenous carbohydrate, but these metabolic changes do not alter the training-induced magnitude of increase in exercise performance.
Superior endurance performance with ingestion of multiple transportable carbohydrates.
TLDR
Ingestion ofGF led to an 8% improvement in cycling time-trial performance compared with ingestion of G, suggesting that GF led to a sparing of endogenous CHO stores, because GF has been shown to have a greater exogenous CHO oxidation than G.
