The Body at Rest

Your body digests carbohydrates quickly they're through the digestive system in two hours and then are in use. However, protein requires more effort for your body to digest. Digesting protein takes longer and may divert blood to the digestive system from the rest of the body.That's why when you're out for a bike ride, it's better to eat a banana than a hard boiled egg. It's easier on your body to eat your protein while you're resting.
