Low Carbing & Running

I had two people in the last week ask me about low carb dieting and running, one was an athlete and one was a newsletter subscriber. I thought this was a sign to do a video about it! Check it out below and let me know what you think in the comments!

Check out info from Dr. Mark Cucuzella.

I will say I did LCHF intensely for about 7 months but then had to modify when my training intensified – I ended up losing 70 lbs. It definitely helped me kickstart my weight loss and I just modified to what I needed. I still don’t eat much pasta and bread since I don’t like the way it makes me feel. I do eat a lot of eggs 😉

    I totally agree that for weight loss, low CHO is fantastic and most of the general population would be far far better off with a bit less pasta and bread!

Great video:) The transition time to fat adapted seems to be subjective. For some it’s quick, others can take months from what I’ve read. I personally have benefited from very low carb in distance running where I’m not pushing my heart rate into the anaerobic zones. I find I do not need to fuel during the run like I used to. Recovery time has improved too. Thanks for doing this video.
