Dr Luke attended the LaTrobe Running Science symposium July 6-7, where he learnt all about his favorite topic…. running! There he heard from Sport & Exercise physician Peter Brukner on his low nutritional approach to develop healthy athletes and his latest book “A fat lot of good”.
Dr Brukner’s nutritional advice to athletes is:
1️⃣ basic diet should be low carb, healthy fat, real food 🥘 , avoiding sugar, processed foods & seed oils
2️⃣ give yourself plenty of time to adapt to the change of eating patterns
3️⃣ you may find that you need to top up with some carbs before &/or during higher intensity activity
4️⃣ everyone is different, find what works for you!
