Train twice on any day you intend to drink - gives your metablism a bit of a tempory boost

hmmmmm interesting. I did start the atkins diet about a fortnight ago and for the first week did really well. Then family dramas sort of killed it off half way through the second week and i was going to start again on monday.

I didn't feel any bad effects from lack of carbs, but I did really really miss fruit and fruit juices, far more than I missed things like crisps n chocolate.

Not entirely sure I'll start again, having read this. Altho the major benefit has been stopping me eating between meals!

Hi I been on atkins for 4 weeks now and improved on all my previous best times. I have more energy than before not sure how this works but if you read his book it exlains that ultra runners performed better on low carbs than high .Not at that stage yet or in the future. Good luck

Mark WW, Give it a few months and even my granny will whip your ass in a run.

I still think there may be a wide variety of reactions to similar medicine's/programs/ and diets.

If it works for you, who am I to say it shouldn't. AGAIN, this is a mere uneducated opinion, I am NOT studying any health orientated courses.

Daft idea coming up...

Perhaps you could do the Atkins diet instead of Long Slow Runs? After all if half the point of a long run is to teach your body to burn fat effectively and sooner then you could drop the long runs and just eat lard.

That's a Chaotic idea......I may try that...
