Which takeaway of your presentation are you most excited to share with our delegates?
The main takeaway from this presentation is that the majority of existing studies do not support the long-term use of ketogenic diets for the improvement of endurance performance in athletes. However, there is good evidence to demonstrate that periodising carbohydrate intake – either through restriction at certain times of day or on alternate days – can improve endurance performance and body weight/composition in well-trained and elite athletes.
What are the biggest trends you are foreseeing within your summit?
Emerging trends in this area include examining the use of ketogenic diets on sleep and immune function in athletes. Thus far, the evidence suggests no negative impacts of ketogenic diets on these outcomes.
