(HealthDay News) -- Eating a proper diet, including enough healthy carbohydrates, can help prepare your body for lifting weights -- or what professionals call resistance training.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends these healthy carbohydrate choices for people focused on resistance training:
Whole-grain foods, including quinoa, brown rice, whole wheat bread and whole wheat pasta.
Plenty of fruits.
Dairy foods, including milk and cheese.
Sports bars and sports drinks.
You should consume between 2.3 and 3.6 grams of carbohydrates per pound per day, the academy says.
