That’s how I judge them and it’s served me well so far.

All I’m saying is that when I eat a high carb diet I get hungry quicker (and more severely) and end up eating more.

When I eat low carb I have just as much energy, no loss in performance and I eat less and therefore maintain a lighter weight (which actually helps performance in surfing and other stuff).

Even die hard keto kreeps who do endurance races will carb up in the days leading up to a race and during the race itself. It’s the training cycle that gets the keto treatment.

Periodization...


Those are all fair points, and I did clarify, in a previous reply, that I'm not against reducing carbohydrate intake, especially processed carbs, and simple sugars.
