Compared to the overnight fasted state, a high carbohydrate (CHO) breakfast 3-4 hours before exercise enhances endurance performance. However, the optimal type or composition of the pre-exercise meal to be consumed is less clear. Glycaemic and insulinaemic responses to a meal play a key role in subsequent metabolism during exercise. The investigations described in this thesis focused on the influence of I) the composition and 2) glycaemic index (GI) of CHO breakfasts 3 hours before exercise on postprandial and exercise metabolism and endurance running capacity.
