Keto Diet and Cycling Fitness

Postby Equinox100 » 24 Nov 2018, 10:26am

Hello,

Has anyone tried the Keto diet which I believe is high fat, moderate protein and low carbohydrate and just wondered what impact this has had on fitness?

Thank you

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. CTC gone but not forgotten!

I've never felt better since I stopped eating meat(red or white)some 25 years ago,and I've never missed it.I eat plenty of veg and fruit and oily fish.I like pasta and potatoes,pulses,beans,and cheeses.
I don't much go for this or that diet and eat what I feel like.

is this the Cambridge Diet you're on? I tried that about five years ago, and almost passed out and crashed my bike. I can't use it now as I'm vegan, anyway.

About a year ago, I started to go to Slimming World. I've found it very effective. Although I don't go anymore, I started following its 'precepts' at the beginning of the year, and am down ten pounds. I cycle into work 'empty' (apart from a double espresso), and have two bananas five minutes before setting off on the return journey.
