let's take a moment to appreciate #theglowup ✨
happy #facetofacefriday , my lovelies!
any exciting weekend plans? I have absolutely none because I'm an old lady and I honestly wouldn't have it any other way. I'm gonna run, start a new lifting program and hang out with my dog.
solid weekend planned 😂💪🏻
Fasting on vaca. Last night I went HAM on the wings at the sports bar buffet, but then I also said “when in Rome” and had a small portion of onion rings and a couple potato wedges and a mojito. They were all so good and totally worth it. But today, it’s back on track and I have 3 1/2 more days until I come home, and I’m eager to see if I’ve maintained and also lost while I was here. #ketogenicliving#ketoonvacation
Another AMAZING looking avocado!! 🥑🥑🥑
And possibly the most perfectly hard boiled eggs of all time 🥚🥚🥚
Great breakfast option to get your body and mind primed for the day.
3 high fat foods + moderate protein from the cheese and eggs!
What are you guys having for breakfast today?
🍳🥑 KETO AT ITS SIMPLEST 🥑🍳 tonight’s last minute dinner brought to you by some delicious sunny side up eggs and a tiny weeny avocado. YUM YUM YUM. I would recommend some bacon too for some more protein, but I was out 😭
Just finished reading The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance. Written by Jeff Volek and Stephen Phinney.
This was a very interesting book about how keto-adaptation works mechanically. Athletes are slowly coming around to the concept of using low carb diets to perform and even improve performance.
Despite the scientific complexity of the information, I found it an easy read with the authors explaining things in a simple way.
The book was written in published in 2012 with a focus on endurance athlete case studies. I’m hoping to find some studies on how a ketogenic diet can be applied to team sports that mimic interval types of training, since the book is now 5 years old.
It may be that a ketogenic diet is not ideal for this sort of performance. At the moment I think that living and training on keto, then carb loading before an event may be more suitable but it is something I want to investigate in the coming months.
Are there any team sport athletes out there that have been successful on a ketogenic diet?
