Glycemic Index and Sports Performance

Forum 4A

Title: Glycemic Index and Sports Performance

This week we are looking at sports-driven nutrition.  All exercises need carbohydrates as fuel.  As you learned from reading the chapter on carbohydrates, there are many types of carbohydrates from simple, like sugar, to complex, like fiber. Another way to look at carbohydrates is the spike in blood glucose after we eat food containing carbohydrates.  The glycemic index and glycemic load are built off this concept. To learn more, go to the following website: Glycemic Index.

For this discussion, we will discuss the efficacy of the glycemic index for athletes. Find one peer-reveiwed research article on the glycemic index and exercise or athletic performance. Be sure the article you present, investigated the effect of different glycemic diets on endurance or performance. This discussion is not about glycemic control of blood glucose or the glycemic index and diabetes or obesity.

In your initial Forum post:

  • list your selected article
  • provide the reference for your chosen article
  • describe the study and the results
  • state what the study concludes
  • evaluate the article. Do you think the study made appropriate conclusions from its data? Was the study designed correctly to address the hypothesis?
  • Finally, provide your opinion on the matter. Be sure to justify your position.

Before you post your initial discussion, submit it in the assignment area so its originality will be checked by Turnitin. Points will be deducted if you do not do this. Before you post your discussion, make sure your originality index (%) is less than 15. If it is greater than 15, rewrite your discussion, submit it again in the assignment area and check the %. Keep doing this until your % is less than 15. Only post your discussion when the % is less than 15.
