During exercise your body converts carbohydrates that are stored in your muscles and liver into ATP molecules to use them as energy. Not eating enough or the right type of carbohydrates means your workouts may potentially suffer because you will have less energy to train at a higher intensity. Training at a higher intensity has a greater effect on building larger and stronger muscles. Muscle overload is the only stimulus for muscle growth, and exercising at a higher intensity will boost growth hormone levels.
