High carbohydrate, low carbohydrate, or periodised carbohydrate intake with Louise Burke, PhD |...
Professor Louise Burke is Head of Sports Nutrition at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS). Through her career she has worked both practically with applied nutrition science as well as deep in academia, so she has a great perspective on both ends of the spectrum. In recent years, much of her research has been focused on investigating the effects of low-carbohydrate, high-carbohydrate, and periodised carbohydrate dietary interventions on endurance performance. This research is the topic of today's discussion.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-The "Supernova" studies - comparing the effects of low-carbohydrate, high-carbohydrate and periodised carbohydrate intake on endurance performance
-How quickly does it take to get fat-adapted?
-The impact of fat adaptation on fat oxidation and performance
-Why a constant high-carbohydrate diet outperformed the more sophisticated periodised carbohydrate diet
