Conventional thinking says carbohydrates are the preferred energy source for athletes. For many activities, this is true. Many sports involve a series of quick high-intensity actions, some over an extended period of time. Carbohydrate intake provides the fuel for this in the form of circulating blood glucose and stored muscle glycogen.

Low-carb lifestyle is now a popular choice of many. But what about athletes? Wouldn’t a low-carb diet be detrimental to their performance in training? What about the day of competition?

The presenter is a national level Masters runner and a pre-Diabetic trying to stay healthy first and also have fun and success in competitions.
