A must-read – Overloaded and Under-fuelled

- While there are benefits to fasting, fasted training, high-intensity interval training, metabolic condition workouts, and eating low-carb, you overdo all of these strategies at your peril, and combing them all together is not going to give you the cumulative effects you think they might.
- If you are going to eat low-carb, you need to eat high-fat and likely a lot higher than you think what a high-fat diet actually is.
- If you are eating low-carb and low-fat, you are on borrowed time before you stall.
- If you have goals (whether they are performance, weight, or health orientated), with the exception of the occasional break, taking large portions of time off from the strategies you need to achieve those goals and putting yourself under time pressure to achieve them, is likely to see you defaulting to behaviours which you logically know are likely to fail.
