I've been reading some of the threads here and recently finished Natural Born Heroes
and article like these...
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.
