Arriving late to this conversation. I have also been "reasonably" low-carb
for the past few years, but without a real plan. A few weeks ago an old
friend whom I respect recommended ketogenic, and I took the plunge.
Results are good, similar to others, weight loss, smooth energy delivery,
absolutely no problem skipping meals.
However. Last Sunday I had coffee and cream for breakfast, packed a
generous Ziploc with almonds, and left for a moderately challenging
50-mile/4800 climbing feet ride. My neighborhood has a steady supply of
short, steep (15%+) climbs and descents, like one section of the ride that
has 2200 feet of climbing in just 9 miles. I have geared for those climbs,
and my head has accepted them, and they are no big deal. On this day,
though, I bonked deeper than I have bonked in years. Weird sensation to
feel simultaneously strong and completely out of gas, if such a thing can
be expressed. I had nibbled on the almonds steadily, and I was mystified
that I could never feel the flow of fuel that a banana or a Clif bar or
even a Gatorade would have given me.
I hadn't had that feeling since I was in my twenties, regularly riding 100+
Colorado Front Range climbing days, and staggering into the house after
riding, wanting to eat absolutely anything I could put my hands on right
Anyhoo... I obviously have a lot to learn, and it would seem that Bill has
learned it. Maybe Lara bars are a start.
