Low-carb performance

Can you exercise without eating lots of carbs? Can a smart low-carb diet even IMPROVE some aspects of your physical performance, lowering your excess weight while increasing your fat-burning and your endurance?

These ideas used to be heresy, but now there are athletes out there proving that it works – in some cases completely destroying their competition. Athletes are now breaking records, doing what was once considered impossible.

Professor Stephen Phinney have been researching and testing these ideas for a long time. I recently sat down with him for this interview. In it, Professor Phinney discusses the basics behind low-carb performance, who can benefit the most from it – and how to do it right.

You can watch the first 12 minutes above.

More knowledge

There’s an 18-minute second part to the interview, where Professor Phinney goes through many more practical tips and answers common questions. This second part is on the membership pages.

Here are a few of the things Professor Phinney mentions in the full interview:

  • How avoiding gastro-intestinal problems while exercising can be one of the largest benefits from a low-carb diet
  • What other great athletes are on low-carb diets, and how they are doing
  • The story of a record-breaking rowing race from California – Hawaii, on a strict low-carb diet
  • More on how to get the full benefits and avoid potential problems
  • The future potential for athletes experimenting with this
  • And much more

All this and much more you can learn in the second 18-minute part, on the membership site.
