"Is the Low Carb Diet Good for Athletes?" - Dr. Peter Brukner
Listen to Dr Peter Brukner, Australian Professor of Sports Medicine & physician explain the low-carb diet approach for athletes, its long-term benefits & if carbs are needed to perform well.
If you know someone who is interested in whether a low-carb diet can be suitable and sustainable in the long-term for athletes (elite & amateur), then this interview is for them.
I enjoyed this interview and after talking to Peter, I have a much better understanding of how I can adapt a low-carb diet to get the most out of various exercise regimes. It is not a one-size fits all approach and a hybrid model that's tailored to individual needs may be needed. But all things considered, there are huge benefits for our metabolic health from limiting sugar intake and adopting a low carb approach.
