Keto and Elite Performance Go Hand In Hand
While you may have not heard about this in the Fake News, Keto has quietly been making the rounds of Elite Athletes in all types of sports. From Hockey To Soccer, and Bicycling and endurance sports.
The reason why you have not heard about it is that while you may think some of the Athletes that make millions each year are not all that bright, they are smart enough not to give away their secrets that help give them their competitive edge. The edge as you can imagine only needs to be in fractions of a second, or lasting 1 minute longer, or playing 1 minute stronger. That edge for more and more athletes is secretly Keto.
Here is a mouse study that showed just how big of an impact is possible. Also Dr. Phinney and Dr. Volek have done extensive studies on the competitive edge of a Low Carb diet on athletes over the past decade and yet very few people have heard of either of them. We will be posting more information on both of these men.
Below is the result of an 8 week study on Mice. Now just imagine if you have that much of and edge every day. Adjusting dietary fat intake is reported to affect mitochondrial biogenesis and fatty acid oxidation (FAO), and thus may enhance exercise capacity. However, a high-fat diet where carbohydrate intake is not limited enough also makes it difficult for athletes to maintain weight, and may fail to force the body to utilize fat. As such, a low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic diet (KD) may be viable.
