I wasn’t judging your achievement. Just highlighting the causation of ⬆️ performance in most LCHF case studies is confounded by training. Again, you’ll notice no argument from on this point.

Just highlighting the issue that confounds the LC anecdotes above: training 🏃‍♂️ 🚴‍♀️ . As an experienced sport scientist, I’m note sure why doesn’t acknowledge this.

So your body composition and training hasn’t changed for a year? Not much progress then?

all these case studies are confounded by training. You can’t really say a keto (or any diet) improves long-term performance or recovery outcomes unless you control training.

A benefit of low carb is often ⬇️ hunger due to ⬆️ satiety. This can ⬇️ energy intake which can lead to an energy deficit. Great for weight loss, not for performance.

Yes, I’ve worked with clients with relative energy deficiency which has several negative effects.

I’ve not heard anyone make that claim. In any case I don’t think he ran the entire distance fasted?

No, health underpins performance. The approach depends on the individual context. A 80 mile/week amateur 🏃‍♂️ is completely different to someone doing 10 miles/week.

Probably not If they are chronic LC. A periodised approach seems the best strategy. I.e. modifying carb intake depending on training intensity/goals.
