I've been reading some of the threads here and recently finished Natural Born Heroes
and article like these...http://www.runnersworld.com/diet/can-eating-more-fat-make-you-a-better-runner?cid=soc_runnersworld_TWITTER_Runner
where the argument of such people like Timothy Noakes is that adjusting diet to Low Carb High Fat may lead to performance improvements.
I'm willing to run a little experiment at 50-80g carbs (and maybe others want to join in) and as inconclusive as n=1 experiments may be, it really is all that matters in the end: what works for me?
Hence, my question to the people in this forum. How would we design a nice little experiment to evaluate beyond weight loss and also include exercise performance.
As I see it, I should have at least a 4 week baseline period. Logging food, workouts, mood, sleep, weight. Blood work?
Then say a 12-16 week "LCHF" period? Followed by a "re-carb" intro period?
There is no way I see myself living a life without croissants, pasta or bread. Heck, honestly I'm not even yet sure I'm going to do this.
But here is an opportunity to influence or participate in a test.
