"%u201COn game day, we%u2019ll do egg whites and gluten-free pancakes %u2014 just to get the carbs in there %u2014 turkey sausage, avocado, fruit. We%u2019ll do a big breakfast, so I can burn the calories all day. Once game time comes, I%u2019m already fuelled and ready to go.%u201D That%u2019s what the Raptors%u2019 Kyle Lowry told us a while back, when we asked what he eats for breakfast. And now, ahead of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, we%u2019re uncovering the secrets of this breakfast of a champion. Gluten-free pancakes: Typically gluten-free flours (rice flour, tapioca flour and potato starch) are low in fibre and are absorbed rapidly. That beats a high-fibre carbohydrate, which increases digestion time, delaying the speed at which glycogen reaches the muscles. Also, grains that contain gluten (wheat, barley and rye) contain carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed and can cause gastrointestinal disturbances in some people %u2014 not a distraction you want when you%u2019re squaring off against LeBron James."
