Swedish biathlete Björn Ferry ate only about 15 percent carbs on a diet with 5000 calories and he was one of the fastest skiers out there back in 2010. Won an Olympic Gold medal in Whistler in the pursuit.Futuroscope said:Train low, race high (carbs) has been around for a while now but does it really work (that way)? How much training can you really do with low carbs?
I don't know much about training methods but if you look at running the kenyans are eating a bunch of carbs. What serious endurance athlete consistently eats low carb? You need fuel.
I am no expert but if he can train and compete on a LCHF diet, most endurance athletes should be able to do it.
