It's as if you've had this in the chamber ready to fire. Again, beware of sample size. This article talks about paleo, since that was the hot fad diet in 2013 when the article was published. I'd be curious to know how many of them are still on the diet.

This also doesn't say these athletes are on the keto diet. I'd argue that paleo is probably more sustainable than keto for athletes since complex carbs aren't off limits (I think).
