His latest book, Challenging Beliefs takes the reader through his most important ideas. Three years ago, Tim discovered the benefits of a low carbohydrate diet. He says that once he dropped the carbs, his running came back. Since then, he has been studying the benefits a low carb diet and how it can work for endurance athletes.
