Are low carbohydrate diets the 29-inch wheels of the mountain bike world?

One of South Africa’s top rock climbers sheds some light on what you’re eating.

I’ve learnt to recognise that contemplative look on people’s faces when they find out I work with Prof Tim Noakes and conduct research on low carbohydrate diets. I smile to myself as they recollect controversial snippets of news about the infamous professor, and then formulate questions like: “So is Tim right?” or “So should I also be following a low carbohydrate diet?”. To give myself the slightest chance of keeping a lid on the Noakes can of worms, I’ll just concentrate on the second question here. My quick answer is: “Well, it depends, but you could try out a well-formulated low carb diet to see if you like it”. My preferred answer is a little more complex and involves bicycles.
