Jesse Kropelnicki and Steph Lowe discuss LCHF for triathletes and endurance athletes. This interview highlights that there's not just one way to skin a cat with LCHF. Different triathletes will fall on different points on the spectrum of LCHF. The approaches of Jesse and Steph differ mostly in that Jesse prescribes a train-high, race-high approach, whereas Steph prescribes training low and racing moderately high. 
 
 
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
  • Steph's approach to LCHF (low-carb, high-fat diets): real food, avoid extremes, and train low, race high
  • Jesse's nutrition approach: "unprescribed LCHF" (less focus on macronutrients) in day-to-day nutrition, with train high (and train the gut), race high. 
  • Potential benefits of LCHF for endurance athletes. 
  • LCHF versus "clean eating" and non-LCHF with unprocessed foods
  • Myths and misunderstandings around LCHF
  • How the race-course is the world's best lab for testing nutrition strategies and verifying that they work
