When is a diet lower in carbohydrates not a smart strategy for the endurance athlete?

And when is lower in carbohydrates during training season NOT recommended for the athlete aiming for weight and body fat reduction? When in general a lower in carbohydrate diet is recommended for that very purpose?

Low carb meals aren’t always appropriate for the hard training endurance athlete

In general endurance athletes do NOT need as many carbohydrates during day to day training as many out dated dietician texts will have us think. Given there will be those on either side of the extreme needing much more or much less carbohydrates to support optimal training, recovery and health.

Carbos like this are not on the plan for my athletes!

Endurance Race and Triathlon Preparation E-Book

Finally, after weeks of saying it is almost done, I have finished my e-book titled ‘The Definitive Guide to Endurance Race & Triathlon Preparation”.

This comprehensive e-book weighs in at 53 pages, I am very happy with how it looks and it is jammers with helpful tips and practical advice covering different strategies, all about which carbohydrates, proteins and fats to choose all the while keeping the diet gluten-free and healthy; no trash, junk, sugars, etc. This diet is as close to Paleo/ Traditional as a pre-race strategy will permit.
