Keto, low carb and sugar free pleasures
YE The Ketogenic Diet for Athletes, Dr. Fabrice Kuhn & Dr. Hugues Daniel
What do the three most successful Ironman athletes, Paula Newby-Fraser, Mark Allen and Dave Scott, have in common? The ketogenic diet! Eating fat to become a good fat burner and ambition for victory, may seem crazy. Yet this is what a growing number of endurance but also strength athletes are experiencing.
What should you really expect from this diet? Can it maximize your performance? What effects does it have on weight? How to implement it safely? This unique guide answers all these questions. It is the plebiscite road companion for all keto athletes.
Themselves doctors and athletes, Drs. Fabrice Kuhn and Hugues Daniel expose the scientific evidence in favor or against ketogenic. But more than that, having tested it on themselves, and gathered the experience of those who practice it, they draw up the assessment in real-life situations.
Verdict: some endurance athletes benefit incredibly from this diet and see their performance and health frankly improved. Others, on the contrary, see their times stagnate or decrease. The only way to know which camp you're in is to try it by following the advice in this book.
Strength athletes, on the other hand, will find a way to lose weight without losing muscle mass.
And if ketogenic isn't for you, why not try less strict alternatives: the targeted keto diet, cyclic keto, low carb, low glycogen training.
