Abstract

For studying the effect of eating the food containing carbohydrates with different glycaemic index and glycaemic load 2 hours before athletics on the exercise tolerance and immune function, select 10 men long-distance endurance athletes, use not completely random balance repeated testing methods, randomized complete the three endurance tests. And each test interval is not less than seven days. The results suggest that there is no apparent effect of eating the food containing carbohydrates with different glycaemic index and glycaemic load 2 hours before athletics on the exercise tolerance and immune function. Compared with the glycaemic index and glycaemic load of food, the carbohydrate content of the diet before athletics may be the more important factor affecting the immune response in endurance sports.

Keywords: Endurance athletes, glycemic index, glycemic load, immunity.
