So, after two or so weeks of strict low-carbing, and you've become keto-adapted, how many carbs can you consume without slipping out of adaptation? The reason I ask is if you were eating low carb, but wanted to do a bunch of MetCon, is glycogen replenishment PWO going to interfere with being fat adapted? Also, is glycogen replenishment alone going to be sufficient to fuel numerous MetCon workouts/week? An article that Robb posted a while back would leave me to believe that it's not possible:
Ketogenic Diets and Physical Performance
Therapeutic use of ketogenic diets should not require constraint of most forms of physical labor or recreational activity, with the one caveat that anaerobic (ie, weight lifting or sprint) performance is limited by the low muscle glycogen levels induced by a ketogenic diet, and this would strongly discourage its use under most conditions of competitive athletics.
Does anyone know of any other studies on ketogenic diets and physical performance?
