Manchester City Coach: Quit Pizza or Quit Training!

So you need carbs if you’re an athlete, right? Not if you ask Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola, who wants his players to quit refined carbs such as pizza and soda.

If they don’t follow his demands, if they’re not close to their target weight, they’re not allowed to train with the team.

  • The Telegraph: Pep Guardiola Bans Overweight Manchester City Players from Training
  • News Week: Manchester City: Why Has Pep Guardiola Banished Pizza-Loving from Training?
  •  

    This is all in an attempt to make his players fit and to prevent injuries that may happen due to extra weight. It’s about creating a winning team.

    So… if even these elite athletes (who train A LOT) need to stay away from refined carbs in order to stay fit, perhaps regular people would be better off doing it too.

    Chris Froome Cut Back on Carbs, Lost 20 Pounds and Won the Tour de France – 3 Times!

    Here’s a true atomic bomb in the sports nutrition world.

    Chris Froome, winner of Tour de France in 2013, 2015 and 2016, now says that the winning concept was saying goodbye to most carbohydrates, and introducing more fatty protein such as salmon and eggs. By doing so, he lost 20 pounds, increased his power to weight-ratio and started winning.

    Business Insider: After Chris Froome Cut Back on Carbs for More Protein, He Lost 20 Pounds, Started Winning the Tour de France, and Became A Millionaire

    It’s quite funny that there are still many people who think that you need to load up on carbs to exercise at all. This is just a great example showing that that simply isn’t true.

    If reducing carb intake can make Chris Froom win one of the most competitive endurance races on the planet, multiple times, how could it help you get into better shape?

    Becoming a Low-Carb Doctor – Watch the Full Interview with Dr. Brukner


    4.8 out of 5 stars5 star87%4 star5%3 star5%2 star2%1 star0%40 ratings2,271 viewsDr. Peter Brukner is the team physician for the Australian Cricket Team. He was overweight and pre-diabetic, but a few years ago he got interested in low carb after listening to professor Tim Noakes.

    The problem? He’d been a advocate of “carb loading” and a high-carb diet for ages. So what should he believe in now? There was only one thing to do – an N=1 experiment that was totally useless… unless of course if the one was himself.

    This interview has been for members only – and very popular with a 4.8 out of 5 star average rating. Now everyone can watch the entire interview above.

    “Why I Supported High Carb”


    4.1 out of 5 stars5 star57%4 star10%3 star21%2 star7%1 star3%28 ratings1,433 viewsProfessor Tim Noakes has made a huge impact in South Africa, helping tens if not hundreds of thousands of people to transform their lives – losing weight effortlessly and reversing diabetes – on LCHF diets (or Banting, as it’s often called in South Africa).

    But Professor Noakes was not always a low-carb supporter. For decades he used to be a major international proponent of high-carb diets, especially for athletes. Then he changed his mind, famously ripping a segment out of his own textbook on the subject.

    So why did he support high carb earlier? And why did he change his mind completely? He told it all in his presentation at the LCHF Convention in Cape Town.
