Obsessed with Nutrition . . . for Endurance

Over the last month, I have become obsessed with nutrition and particularly low-fat LOW-CARB dieting for endurance.  I am presently on a Ketogenic diet and loving life. *I will talk about my reasoning in a later post. I have been reading everything I can get my hands on.   I just came across this article and it is worth a read, about intermittent fasting (IF) and its effects on the body – VERY INTERESTING!!!


Better Health via Intermittent Fasting and a Low-Carb Diet

May 16, 2008 written by Justin Owings

I’ve been on a low-carb diet now for about two-and-a-half months. This has consisted of eliminating all breads, potatoes, and starchy foods from my diet (Regarding fruit, I pass on bananas with only the occasional apple while still eating berries and other colorful fruits). Furthermore, it has involved intermittent fasting. Through this diet and with minimal exercise, I have reduced my body fat percentage from around 20% to around 10% representing a loss of some 15+ lbs of fat and the gain of a handful of pounds of lean tissue (Weight change from approx. 182 to 168).

This weight loss was the easiest, most satisfying change in my health and body composition I’ve ever experienced.

As this post is extensive, here is the general breakdown:

  • Intro and Intermittent Fasting
  • Low-carb diet
  • Implementation and Conclusion
  • Additional Reading

Thanks for this! I'm on a quest to find the perfect diet/nutrition for endurance throughout the year. I do many events and want to perfect this in making it my lifestyle. It seems a lot of trial and error is involved as well.
