My Ketogenic Experiment
In this post I will explore the theory behind a Ketogenic diet for endurance athletic performance, and tell you how I tested the idea for myself using both a Half-Marathon and 5k races as performance markers.
I will attempt to answer the following questions:
- What is a Ketogenic diet?
- Why might a Ketogenic diet enhance endurance performance?
- Will a ketogenic diet work for high intensity performance such as a 5k?
- What are the downsides of a ketogenic diet?
