13 Feb What is the risk in taking carbs once fat adapted?
On this edition of The Prof Noakes Podcast, James Preston chats to Prof Noakes regarding a question submitted by Robin Beetge. Robin would like to know what the risk is of a negative glycaemic response of eating or drinking high carb glycaemic foods during a race from the tables for example, once fat adapted. Particularly running ultra trails where there may be dependency on sugary foods at water tables. Whilst adapting to LCHF, is running on little more than a handful of nuts and some salami for 3 or 4 hours sufficient or do you need carbs to get you through?
