Can A Very Active Person Be On A Ketogenic Diet?

That’s a very common question I hear…People who are very active often believe that without carbohydrates, they won’t be able to sustain the energy levels they need to have effective workouts or to perform well in competitions and events.

I listened to an excellent podcast of Ben Greenfield as he interviewed surgeon, engineer and relentless self-experimenter, Dr. Peter Attia, about this very topic: whether it is possibly to be extremely active and eat a low carbohydrate diet.

If you’ve ever wondered whether it’s possible to keep yourself in a “ketogenic”, low carbohydrate state and still swim, bike, run, lift and do other extreme sports and activities, then this audio will answer all your questions.
