Welp, turns out burgers aren't so bad for runners away.
It's all the glutards and vegan trustafarians in the running world that cause these misdelusions about "junk food."
"guess what, gluttons? Turns out that fast food does your muscles good.
"According to an upcoming study in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, the frozen-and-fried crap you get from your average food court is effective in replenishing glycogen, a form of carbohydrate energy used by your muscles that gets depleted during a workout. (It's also the reason why bodybuilders carbo-load.) Not only that, but fast food may be just as good at replenishing glycogen as a meal of energy bars and sports drinks."
So, health nuts can suck it. I know there's lots of runners on here who don't eat meat and judge others but they're the ones being left behind and I know that now.
