How to carb load before a marathon?

Carbo loading is a proven method of ensuring that your body has enough carbohydrates stores to burn during a marathon or largescale endurance event. The specialists suggest that athletes begin using a carb loading supplement as well as ingesting carbohydrate dense foods from about five days before a race or marathon. In the two days before the event, you should consider upping your carb content a little more which includes increasing the amount of carb supplements and foods you are taking. The night before a marathon or endurance event, consider having a small yet carb-dense meal that includes protein and vegetables as well.
