The honest answer here is that you certainly can eat those foods, but if you are pre-fueling before training, you will need to eat those foods many hours prior to training to ensure that the carbs are digested and in your bloodstream, liver and muscle cells to fuel your training. If you eat them right before training you won’t have fueled your muscles, and you will most likely feel too full to train well. Without question, these foods will help refuel muscle and liver glycogen stores. However, the question really should be will they refuel and recover glycogen stores as fast as Vitargo and without the bloating and “heavy stomach” feeling? If you are training or competing in multiple same-day bouts or the very next day you need to choose the carbohydrate source that is research proven to accelerate refueling and recovery after exhaustive exercise.
