CaseyD Posted June 24, 2012 Share Posted June 24, 2012 I'm starting to read a lot about this, and I know that Mark Sisson advocates this approach, but I'm interested in hearing more opinions. I'm doing a Tough Mudder in October, and I'm considering doing it as a "fat burning machine." As in, I'm thinking about going extra low carb (50-70 grams a day) for the next few months to train my body to use fat as an energy source. But, this is so against the grain and like the whole "eat more fat" idea, I'm having a hard time just jumping on the bandwagon. Part of me is wondering if this is actually damaging to your health, to be ketogenic for the long haul. I get some mixed messages about this. Does anyone have experience or educated thoughts on this? If so, do you have any recommendations of how to pull this off in the most healthful way? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
