InDurance - alternative fuel substrates for sports health and performance, including low carbohydrate feeding for athletes
On todays episode we are pleased to present a multiple scientific article review or 'Journal club' which may be featured again as an ongoing format within the InDurance Podcast structure. We are discussing recent developments and interest in alternative fuel substrates for sports health and performance, in particular recent interest in low carbohydrate feeding for athletes. We look at some of the data and stories so far on the subject to raise further awareness and dertmine whether this recent trend of restricted fuel intake has any real merit to it. To build on this we are also going to inspect some of the evidence which has uncovered some concerns about high carbohydrate feeding in endurance sports and debate its value. We will look at two very important scientific papers that have appeared over the last few years which provide some.....food for thought!
