An energy fix that boosts blood-sugar levels for 90 minutes. Eat 5min before activity.

3. Energy bars
PowerBar and Clif Bar give 22-45g of carbs, plus a dose of protein.
4. Jelly beans
In tests these fuel pellets boosted energy more than sports drinks, water, and gels.
5. Fig rolls
Great for climbing, with quick-release sugars and slow release carbs.
6. Energy gels
Look for gels that contain electrolytes to help you rehydrate. One gel has 22-29g of carbs.
