Publisher's Summary

The ketogenic diet is gaining increasing popularity. And with good reason: it is easy to implement, is not complex and is highly effective. It has been well researched and has produced consistent results since the 1920s.

The Ketogenic Diet for Athletes explores the remarkable amount of evidence of health and performance benefits derived from the diet then specifically applies that to athletes. Whether you are an amateur or professional, you already know that what you eat is directly related to your performance and recovery.

The ketogenic diet will help you optimize your diet for top athletic performance, improved health, and longevity.

You will discover how you can:

  • Teach your body to prioritize burning fat as fuel (instead of sugars)
  • Reduce your reliance on sugary gels during endurance training and events
  • Reduce stomach cramps during long races
  • Effortlessly lose body fat without feeling hungry
  • How to train effectively to access abundant body fat stores
  • Improve your concentration during the day without the sugar crash
  • Reduce your risk for chronic illness like diabetes, heart disease and stroke
  • And much more

Charlotte Campbell is a triathlete, coach, and author and provides a fascinating discussion from her experience, that of her clients and many case studies of top endurance athletes who have switched to the ketogenic diet and as a result have dramatically improved their performance and their health.

Maybe A Premature Perspective.

Clearly a decent amount of research went into this book. The story telling was well done.

Some minor editing/post production flaws. Not earth shattering but distracting at times.

Would have preferred that her personal experience with the diet was farther along.

I enjoyed the book and have shared it with several people.

Far from the "ultimate guide."

Far from the "ultimate guide."
More of a very basic introduction.
Doesn't discuss enough nuances of the diet, it's like a cheap ad for the keto diet, curating information that makes keto look good.
This just felt like a cheap, grad of information from the internet, pasted into an audiobook.

There are a lot more free resources online that would save time and be more informative than this book.

Seriously dangerous

This book contains a lot of misinformation. The author is selling a diet that she hasn’t been on long enough.

Also, there isn’t a single downside being discussed. Our hospitals are full of athletes that changed to a keto diet. Every healthcare professional I consulted on this topic warned me that it will cause permanent damage to your body! And every athlete I know has either failed to finish races, or has been hospitalized on a low carb diet.
