I have been eating a 60-70% fat diet for about 3 months no carb-ups and though I felt like crap for about the first 2 weeks I now feel great. I lift weights 4-5x a week sprint 2x a week and trail run 10 miles every Sunday.
Do you carb-up nowadays?
Back in 2010 and earlier this year I tried Paleo for the week and a carb meal on a weekend. Usually sticking to simple carbs (rice, potatoes) and a good quality ice cream (a a few scoops in a bowl say).
Thanks for the tip on the software. I’ve used My Fitness Pal also (on iOS but might be available on other platforms also). Shelby also recommended Nutrition Data (web site) when I was coached by him.[/quote]
No, carb ups at all and do not plan on having them. I am trying to see what kind of long term results/benefits I get. So far so great. Diets like the “Anabolic Diet” though high fat have huge carb ups that I feel may take away from realizing the full potential benefits.
I have not been able to find studies on long term high fat diets so, I figured I would try it myself. As some one who trains I have not had any negative effects in regard to endurance/strength as many believe will occur. It took about a month but, I can now run long distance (max was 15 miles 6:45-7:30 miles) no issues.
